“Great safe location, 10 - 20min walk to shopping and eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We spent 3 nights here and found it to be great location to shop, eat and explore from.
Beverley Centre down the road where there is a HOHO bus stop if you need.
Opposite direction you have The Grove and Farmers market.
Plenty taxis at front door and desk staff most helpful.
Only small negative , although room clean and good size , the furniture is dark and probably needs an upgrade to something fresh and more appealing.
Great bar downstairs with open fire.

Dear SAM_D_AUS,

Thank you for your kind comments!

It's great to see that you took advantage of our central location at the corner of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. As you noted, The Orlando is a close walk to both The Beverly Center and The Grove, and so many of our guests find it a great "base" for their Los Angeles adventures. Additionally, our local community on West 3rd Street offers some really unique upscale shopping opportunities and some of Los Angeles’ best restaurants.

As you may be aware, The Orlando underwent an extensive remodel in 2011/2012 and now offers all new guest rooms and many new public areas. We're very excited to be completing this project with a brand new swimming pool area, opening in April of this year. Over the past 18 months, we have replaced many of the guestroom furnishings, but we do have plans for further upgrades in this area throughout 2013.

We very much appreciate your compliments of our team and restaurant/bar. It’s such a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your visit. And we will all look forward to your return.

Very best,
Paul Gardner, Guest Services Manager

This is a great hotel but it is expensive. However, the same star level hotels in the same neighborhood are around the same price.

I spent only one night there so I can only comment on the room. The room was very clean, the bathroom also very clean and nicely designed. Not much noise.

The front desk was helpful and courteous.

Recommended if you have to stay in this neighborhood.

Dear Amofpers,

Thank you for your recommendation of The Orlando Hotel. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your short visit.

As you noted, hotels in the Beverly Hills and West Hollywood are sometimes costly, particularly when there are large events, like our recent Grammy and Oscar awards. But I'd always encourage you to go to check the offers on this review site as well as TheOrlando.com for our best rates.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We hope to see you on your future visits to Los Angeles!

Very best,
Paul Gardner, Guest Services Manager

With the Beverly Center at 10 minutes walking and The Grove at about 15 you can hardly beat the location if you're in town for shopping and you don't want to spend all your time driving. Personnel is young and welcoming, rooms large and clean. The pool is very small. They gave me a late checkout today with no hesitation and the room was on a special rate for the day. All in all, a small, but nice hotel close to one of LA's hottest eating spots, Joan's on Third.

Dear Kane D,

I'm so happy to see that you enjoyed our location, staff, and newly renovated guest rooms. As you noted, we're situated between the Beverly Center and The Grove and it's an easy walk to both.

We're actually in the process of updating our swimming pool now, so while it is a small pool, I think you'll enjoy the significant upgrades we're making to this area for your next visit.

We hope to see you on your next visit to Los Angeles!

Very best,
Paul Gardner, Guest Services Manager

A perfect place to stay, a fantastic hotel and an awesome bar with a selection of great beers and food. We stayed there for a week or so in October 2012 and found it the perfect base to explore from, with easy (and cheap) access via cab to Hollywood and Santa Monica and only a short walk from The Farmers Market, Joans on Third and Veggie Grill. We're planning a return trip as soon as we can make it.

My girlfriends and I just spent a magical night at The Orlando Hotel. We were impressed on every level. We asked for early check-in and it happened - well before Noon. We asked for rooms nearby and it happened. We were greeted by a lovely staff, fantastic rooms (double queens - with robes) and Churchill's, a really fun bar/restaurant in the Lobby. We wish we had stayed longer and we will be back.
Thanks, Paul and your wonderful team.

It’s such a reward to see you describe your experience in those terms.

Thank you for choosing The Orlando Hotel for your friends getaway. We’ll look forward to your next visit to Los Angeles!

I love the staff at the Orlando.They are 100 percent accommodating from the valet to the front desk ( a few steps away) to the hotel staff,
The little lobby&front desk area always has fresh,beautiful flower displays ,2 staff members ready to help you and the elevators are fast.The rooms are a good size,soft browns and earthy tones,Zen like bathrooms with clean towels & linens and great smelling bath products.For the busy location it's surprisingly quiet easy to navigate.I would have given the Orlando 5 stars but it's attached restaurant "The Churchill " is lacking...well...anything really worth ordering.It's menu is a bit too sophisticated (or so it wishes to be) for the hotel's clientele.It needs some items that are less interesting.
Parking here is a cinch with the valet who are so fast and thoughtful that I don't mind the parking fee.
Friendly,fresh and comfortable this sweet little establishment is a stones throw from the Beverly Center,Joan's onThird,Polkadots&Moonbeams,Sunset Blvd,,Melrose,LACMA ,The Grove and a bunch of awesome restaurants and cool shops.A WAY better value than the ridiculously overpriced and underwhelming Sofitel down the street.
P.S.I have stayed here MANY times now and it's been consistently delightful.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from the street side.

Dear WeRTrippin,

First of all, I think you get the prize for the most creative Trip Advisor user name I’ve seen!

We’re all very grateful for your kind review as it gives our team great joy to know that you've stayed with us on many occasions and you've consistently enjoyed The Orlando.

It’s always really great to see when our guests take such good advantage of our location. As I've said before, I feel we have one of the best locations in Los Angeles. It’s one of the few places where you don’t need a car to explore so many great attractions.

You’ll be pleased to know that our restaurant has just introduced their new menu this week and I think you’ll find that it has a few more items that you may find appealing.

We’ll look forward to your future visits to Los Angeles and thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

Very best,
Paul Gardner

We found this place on hotel tonight app and were stoked.
The hotel is conveniently located across from The Beverly Centre which has all the designer labels and Macy's so it suits all tastes and budgets.
Orlando is also on top off a terrific restaurant called the Churchill and meters away from excellent eating spots such as Joan's and Toast.
The staff are all happy and helpful and asked us if views or a quiet room was more important. We chose quiet as the rooms with Hollywood Hills views are on a busy street. Our room overlooked the pool and we slept soundly in a most comfortable king bed. The room was spacious with a lounge and desk.
We were most impressed with the value and service we received in a brilliant positioned Beverly Hills hotel. Definitely recommend this to all.
