“Excellent facility, excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We stayed here because we like the restaurants on W 3rd St and it is convenient to walk. Easy check in, check out. Valet service friendly and fast. We had a room on an upper floor facing 3rd and enjoyed the view of the palms and hills. There was a bit of road noise but not enough to preclude good sleep. The bed was quite comfortable. The room itself was large, the clothes cabinet has full length mirrors on the doors, iron and safe. The bath was pleasant in earth tones but a bit small. The layout was efficient with a basin sink and glass door shower. There was very little counter space in the bath, but plenty in the room. The bath shelves will be too high for easy access for someone on the short side. The bath has hair dryer and magnifying mirror. The restaurant/bar was full on both evenings. The pool is quite small as is the workout facility.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the view out the 3rd St side, east facing will get the sunrise.

Great hotel for those who want to be next to the beverly center and not far from the hollywood boulevard. Small boutique hotel so the service was great and all aspects of the hotel were well conserved, from the lobby to the rooms. Stayed in a big room overlooking the pool, great tv and couch for unwinding after a long day in LA

Stayed twice at The Orlando, from Sep 22-25th and again from Sep 28th-31st.

Hubbie and I were recommended this hotel due to the fact that it was closest to our friend’s residence in Beverly Hills.

For both stays, we were checked in by Princess, who graced the Front Desk.

Our first room was 322 – a Standard King. Our second room was 420, a Deluxe King.

Pros:
• Front Desk folks were always lovely to interact with. Especially Princess who always wore a lovely smile! Check-in and check-out was absolutely effortless.
• Both rooms were very clean with ample toiletries in the bathroom.
• Firm King beds made for many a good nights rest.
• Location cannot be beat. It’s one of the few streets you can actually enjoy walking in LA without fear of dodgy characters hanging around. Excellent shopping with malls nearby.
• For the price, this hotel offers excellent value-for-money. Twice turndown service was a huge surprise! The room furnishings were also well maintained and comfortable.
• Loved the weather report cards we found every evening after turndown service.
• Very well-stocked (and complimentary) coffee/tea basket which were fully replenished daily.

Cons:
• When we checked into Rm 322, we were surprised with a cupcake from the famous Magnolia Bakery. Not however for Rm 420. We were informed that our iPrefer membership privileges had since changed...
• Shower water pressure left much to be desired. No bathtub in either bathrooms.
• Both rooms provided one bathrobe only for two guests.
• The building, although fully renovated, is an old building. Expect to hear creaky floorboards from the rooms above you.
Would we stay at The Orlando again? You bet!

Room Tip: We asked for quiet rooms and got just that!

Visiting our daughter. Found on Hotels Tonight. Gracious staff. Excellent bed and bath. Nice exercise equipment and small pool deck. Pool furniture needs cleaning, but otherwise comfy. Churchill's Restaurant is adjacent with good food from dawn to midnight.

Needed a place to stay the night before going to a filming of the price is right. After dealing with the heavy LA traffic we decided the closer to CBS studios the better. This appeared to have good reviews and was only a few blocks away from CBS.

We arrived around 10pm to a friendly valet. Went in and had issues with the front desk finding our reservation that we made online through booking.com. The other front desk staff member had gotten it but not manually entered it into their system. A short time later we were on our way to our room.

We arrived to find a very spacious and clean room complete with a mini bar. Bed was comfy. Only issue we had was not an out let for 2 phones to charge on both sides of the bed.

We stayed in the orlando twice on september at the begining and the middle of september for a total of 9 nights, the staff were amazing, extremely friendly we had the pleasure of dealing with Sam, Robert and Sasha. They were all great and very friendly enjoyed long chats with them whenever we could. The location on is also great, within walking distance of beverly center, farmers market, the grove, many restaurants and cafes.

The Orlando was a great choice for me. It was located within walking distance of my training location. The room was very nice, service was great and the staff was always attentive and professional. I will stay there the next time I travel to LA. Also a great plus is the hotel is near great shopping and eating establishments. They go the extra mile....a very nice experience.
