“great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This was our second stay here. The location was great for us, only a 5 minute walk to Graumans. The complimentary breakfast was muffins, toast, cereals and fruit.
The staff here are nice very helpful.
The rooms are very spacious and the kitchen was adequate. The rooms are getting a bit dated and are requiring some attention. Nothing bothered us overly much but it is something to consider. The major flaw with staying here is the sound from adjoining rooms. We had an awful night here because of the people in the next room. Something to note if you are not a heavy sleeper.

Our family of two adults and two teens stayed in an Executive 2 queen suite for four nights from 19th December. Our booking was made on line in May and was confirmed immediately. We arrived at the hotel earlier than expected and maintenance was going on in our room, but the check in staff were kind enough to let us move into our room straight away and the maintenance guy moved his gear out immediately. This was fantastic as we all needed to freshen up after our long tiresome flight. Our room was situated directly opposite the pool,although in December it was too cold to swim. The room was a little dated but very clean and tidy and contained a queen bed in the lounge with a self contained kitchen which would help families cut cost by eating some meals in the room. A separate bedroom continued another queen bed and the beds were extremely comfortable. There was a lot of storage but we live out of our suitcases when travelling. The shower was over the bath and had good pressure. There was a breakfast included in the room rate which was served in a breakfast room and you had a choice of muffins, croissants, bagels,instant porridge, spreads and hot drinks and juice along with a lovely lady who offered you assistance with anything you needed. The location was fantastic and was quietly situated at the bottom of a dead end street at the back of
a mall. You stepped out of the hotel and walked a few meters to a tunnel (well lit ) and walked into the mall and the Kodak Theatre and then out onto the main drag of Hollywood. We had a hire car for our stay and there was a car park under the hotel for our car which was very handy as you need a car in LA to get around. The boys drove to an NBA basketball game one night and the girls took in the Cirque du Soleil show in the theatre and could walk safely home together. The Malls are decorated beautifully for Christmas and were not overly crowded either. Avoid McDonalds at night as the homeless shelter there and will ask for money as you are waiting.
As the reviews tell you this is a Perfect location with friendly staff and service and we would definitely recommend it.

Stayed for 2 nights mid-December in a King 2-room suite. The rooms are a great size with a king bed in the main room and another in the separate bedroom. There is one bathroom, a kitchen, small dining table and two large t.v's (one is in the bedroom).

The location of this hotel is fantastic, right in the centre of Hollywood and around the corner from the train. Yet our room was very quiet and the beds very comfortable (although the pillows were awful, too large and hard).

Breakfast was included and was basic but OK-cereal, toast, juice, bagels. The breakfast area is tiny but you can easily take it all up on a tray to your room where you have a dining table.

This hotel is a great option for families who need a room bigger than an average hotel room and don't want to pay for two rooms. It is very clean and comfortable-not glamorous but definitely nice enough. I recommend it!

My mom and her husband stayed in this hotel recently and the location and amenities (kitchenette) for the price cannot be beat. We visited the room several times and they said when they come back they'll stay again. Always a good sign!

...if you're on a budget, and looking for a clean, neat, family-friendly place to stay just a stone's throw from Hollywood Boulevard, this is the spot.
Despite being a 5 minute walk from the Chinese Theater and all the noise and fun of Hollywood, it's quiet location tucked into a dead-end street behind a hotel and mall makes it suprisingly quiet at night.
Just spent three nights there in December 2012, and it fit the bill perfectly.

Stayed at Hollywood Orchid Suites from 22-25 Dec 2012 (USD129 per night before taxes for a deluxe King suite with a kitchen). The location is very convenient for someone who did not drive - the metro (Hollywood/Highland) and bus station were close - 5 mins walk and it is at the back of the Hollywood and Highland Mall, so within walking distance to the touristy spots - El Capitan, Dolby Theatre, Hollywood Walk of fame etc.

The price for the room is very reasonable for the location, size of room with kitchen and continental breakfast.

However, you should be aware that the place is very, very dated. Room is pretty old and so are the amenities - items such as the stove, oven, bedding, towels, carpet etc are pretty much from a blast from the past (the kettle and cups in my room are kind of grimy). Bed and pillows are very soft but adequately OK for sleep.

Service is slightly above average and the lady whom does the breakfast is very friendly.
If you want good location and do not mind the quality, it is a good value for your $.
