“Fantastic Hotel in a Great Location”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

I stayed here for 3 nights for a girls weekend in November. The hotel is in a great location. It was about $50 for a cab from the airport to the hotel. There are cabs always readily available at the hotel, and if there aren't they will call one very quickly for you. There are some great restaurants on the main street (Joan's on Third) and a convenience store right across the street. It's a quick walk to the Grove/Famer's Market and CBS Studios, the Beverly Center and Hollywood was a quick and cheap cab ride.

Check in was very quick and the front desk staff were always very polite and helpful.

The room was wonderful. Very clean and modern. The beds were very comfortable with lots of pillows and clean/fresh linens. The carpet was in good condition...no worries about walking around barefoot on a nasty carpet...this was very clean. Nice flat screen tv with lots of table top space (desk, bedside table and mantel) to put things. Air conditioning is controlled by a thermostat on the wall and the temperature was always very comfortable. Didn't hear any noise from the street, in the hallways or from adjoining rooms.

The bathroom was great. Very clean and well stocked. HUGE shower and loads of counter space. Lots of little cubbies to store things too!

Free wifi and a free computer in the lobby...with a printer to print boarding passes! LOVE that!

It's a great hotel, very reasonably priced. I will be back for sure!

I usually stay at the Kimpton, but had to choose a hotel next to my meeting site. I was pleasantly surprised by Hotel Orlando. It has a 'brand new' feel to it and the rooms were spacious with great bathrooms.

The hotel is located right by a street full of organic delis and cute boutique shops. There is Magnolias Bakery right across the street and only 2 blocks away from Beverly Center Shopping and Yogurtland. We stayed there for an entire week and ate at a different place every day within walking distance.

The Churchill, the restaurant inside the hotel, is great and they have tables reserved for guests so you never have to wait during a busy Friday or Saturday night.

I was very pleased with the service too, everyone was super nice. I will def stay here again

We have just stayed at The Orlando for 12 nights after flying non stop from Sydney Australia to Los Angeles. The hotel and all the staff we encounted were wonderful from the moment we arrived until our departure. The front desk crew are really special. The room was freshly renovated with plenty of space, a big screen television, fabulous beds, free wifi and a new bathroom.Everything worked as it should and as a bonus the hotel location is excellent.

We will be back!!!

Room Tip: Higher floors have an interesting view.

Bad experience. They didn't warn us in advance of our booking that the hotel was under major renovations. I don't mind that or the dust etc. but the hammering and drilling that woke us up at 7am was horrible. I wish they had at least placed us away from the construction.

Even worse? I filled out the hotel comment card in full and made this issue known upon checkout. No follow-up ensued, nor apology. That's why I'm writing this.

I expect some tardy online apology will follow now from the Orlando but shame on them for ruining our stay and not doing anything about it until being called out.

If this is the way the Orlando operates, beware. A decent hotel would warn you in advance about noisy renos that are underway. Boo!

Just returned from a quick trip to LA. We stayed two nights at the Orlando. What a wonderful hotel! Extremely friendly and helpful people at the front desk. Lovely room-just the right size! The bed was so comfortable and we slept really well. The bathroom is modern and the shower felt awesome. Also very quiet. No air-conditioner noise which is way too common in most hotels. Fully stocked refrigerator if you choose to use it, too. That amenity is gone from most hotels. The location is excellent. You can walk to many very good restaurants, the Beverly Center, the Grove and the Farmer's Market. In 10- 15 minutes you can be at the corner of Hollywood and Vine. We would most definitely stay again.

Dear RosemaryYonkers,
Thank you for staying with us on your quick trip to Los Angeles.
I am delighted you enjoyed our beds, amenities and location. Thank you for mentioning our quiet air conditioning. We just installed a brand new state-of-the-art system that not only operates well in the guest room but is also a highly efficient system so it’s good for the planet too.
We look forward to your next visit.

Traveled to LA for business near Cedar Sinai. Perfect location, nicely appointed and great service. Great value and will definitely stay again.

I wish they would have a low rate guarantee because I saw a lower published rate on Expedia but wasn't able to find the same price on their website.

I have stayed here and my parents have stayed here. It is in a great location. It is a chic, understated boutique hotel. It is LA's "in-the-know" secret boutique hotel.

Service was excellent. Nicole at the front desk was very friendly. I like the design and the restaurant has 1/2 orders of pasta. It is down the street from Joan's on Third (which is a paparazzi-looking-to-snap-a-celebrity photo), which is one of LA's best cafes. It is also close to Robertson Blvd, Beverly Hills, Beverly Center Shopping Mall and other chic destinations.

I wish I could have a permanent room here.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms are on the back (south) side. You have Hollywood Hills view on the north side, b...
