“Not perfect... value for money”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

You don't need to pay big bucks in Hollywood to stay somewhere nice.
We stayed at the Hollywood Orchid Suites last month and were not disappointed.
On arrival the reception was not at street level and there is a locked glass door which greets you which is out of the ordinary but you will come to learn that this is for your safety while staying at the hotel.
When we checked in our room was not available so the receptionist arranged to hold our bags for us, we were travelling with a lot of heavy suitcases so we had to get the bags through the car park and up through the lift into the reception area.
The automatic garage door did come and crush one of our bags while we were transporting our bags in. This was probably the lowest point I would mark the hotel down on - as if this was a person who fell instead of a bag - they probably would be dead as the gate didn't retract back but kept trying to go down ... Luckily nothing major was damaged in the suitcase.
The rooms are comfortable and larger than a standard hotel room as the complex used to be residential units. Breakfast is simple but quite nice in the upstairs common area.
The hotel is perfectly located for most Hollywood attractions and is right next to the Metro station where you can get to Universal Studios in 1 block or the public bus stop where you can get to Warner Brothers in about 15 minutes.
Is the hotel perfect? No, definitely not. But you will get a comfortable stay with friendly staff and good value for money. Be prepared to carry your own bags - possibly up stairs by hand.

Stayed here with my husband and teenage boys, news years eve.
Location is great, close to all attractions we were interested in, universal studios just a train ride away.
Hotel only gets two stars, which I was very concerned about, but needn't have been.
It was very clean and roomy and very reasonably priced.
I would never pick a two star establishment ever, but trust me I've stayed in four star places that could learn a thing or two from this place.
Guys at front desk are extremely helpful and always replied to my emails.

We had a great experience here. Homely place with warm and friendly staff at all points on all the 3 days we stayed here. The room, breakfast and the arrangements make you feel absolutely comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped. We did not drive, but did not miss it at all - stores, metro, all the points of sight seeing.... right next door. Kids were excited about the cosy swimming pool as well. We checked in here after a long flight and found our choice could not have been better. Any queries were answered right away by the friendly staff. Just the right place for a family trip.

Very grateful to TA reviewers for pointing us in the direction of this hotel. It was perfect for our family of 4. Spacious, clean and well equipped rooms. Friendly staff, especially Patricia in the breakfast room. First time I've ever hugged a hotel staff member! No need for a car as public transport is nearby and probably quicker then driving. We used trains and buses to get to Exposition Park, Universal Studios, Santa Monica, Downtown, The Grove and Farmer's Market all with no trouble. Groceries a 5 minute walk west down Hollywood Blvd so we could prepare our own lunch and dinner, saving $$ and hassle. Breakfast was fine for us: oatmeal, croissants, bagels, yoghurt, fruit, cereal, tea, coffee, hot choc, juice. Our boys loved the pool which was heated and a few pool toys provided. All the excitement of Hollywood only steps away, yet the hotel is in a quiet, safe location. Perfect!

Excellent place ! So clean. We had a King Suite. Had a well-stocked kitchen, plenty of big pans and frypans, which many hotel kitchenettes fail to provide. Nice courtyard setting. Long drive to Disneyland or Citadel Outlets from here....either go by 6:30am or wait till after 9:30am.Breakfast was a little on the boring side. Fresh oatmeal is always better than the microwaved packets, so would have preferred that. Definitely one to return to.

We had a great stay at the Hollywood Orchid Suites. As everyone raves the location is best you can get in hollywood, especially for the price. It's a 2 minute walk to Hollywood Blvd but without the hussle and bussle of the main drag and right near the subway station! Great food right around the corner. The rooms were a really good size and worked well for each of us that stayed (one couple, a family of 5, and another couple with their parents). I think they were some of the best of the best rooms I've seen for a family. Breakfast was good and it was really good how they would let you take it back to your room or eat it on the roof. The pool was nice and clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our only real issue was we (my husband, mother, her partner and I) were told off for being noisy (noisy footsteps according to the room below) so we felt a little bit victimised as we weren't doing anything intentionally wrong. Therefore I would suggest, if you a really fussy about day to day noise then maybe ask for a room on the upper floor towards the back of the building.

Room Tip: Therefore, if you a really fussy about day to day noise then maybe ask for a room on the upper floor...

We stayed at the suites for 1 night only. We had a large room with kitchenette. Our family of 4 is very often in much tighter quarters, so this was a welcome surprise. It was just as others have reviewed- perfect for families and tourists. The rooms are clean, and though not particularly nice out the windows, you cannot beat the location. We shared a table at breakfast with an English couple and enjoyed visiting with other lodgers. I loved that we had a parking place and it was a nice touch to have them "named" for movie stars. My girls were thrilled to park in the "Leonardo DiCaprio" space! We were able to walk to our daughter's college interview and visit the stars on Hollywood Blvd at the same time. What more could you ask for? If you are looking for luxury and many amenities, this may not be your place, but for value,staff and location, it cannot be beat. We will come again!
