Neighbourhood
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.

Not sure why people give this place such high reviews. We spent over $200 a night and it wasn’t worth it. This is a motel as most of the rooms are located in an outdoor corridor. Very dated. Thin walls and ugly carpet. Hotel reception (women) unfriendly. Very small area to

Hello Littlesimba21, Thank you for taking the time to review. We always want to improve, and your review helps us to do so. You booked our smallest room (Junior Room with two double beds and a kitchenette) through a 3rd party website at $189 for 3 adults When you arrived, you were actually a family of 5, so we charged you another $10 for a total of $199. In the future, we would suggest that you contact us directly to get a better price and room recommendation. We do not recommend the Junior Room for a family of 5 and would have offered a free upgrade to one of the larger family suites we are famous for. Sadly, they were sold out on that night. We understand your disdain for the carpet, which is why 24 of our 39 rooms have already been upgraded to engineered wood floors with more scheduled in the near future. I apologize that my reception staff was not at the top of their game that morning. In fact, we just held a meeting to discuss your interaction with us. This is important to us and we do not want to repeat it. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss this further or if you decide to give us another chance and want to experience one of our larger suites. Sincerely, Joseph Blum (owner/operator) info@orchidsuites.com

Dear Kate F., I am glad that you enjoyed many elements of our hotel (Patricia, friendly staff, comfortable beds, as well as clean and spacious rooms). At the end of your stay I failed in my duties to address your concern adequately and respectfully. Your accusation caught me off guard and I reacted poorly. We take customer complaints seriously and I regret that our brief interaction made the situation worse. I am sorry for spoiling what was otherwise a good stay. You told me you were not accusing anyone, but needed a police report to have your insurance pay for the medication. Police reports are a report of a crime, in this case a crime that you claimed was perpetuated by my housekeepers. From your review I see that you still believe our housekeepers took your prescription. However, I know that the safety and security of our guests and their belongings have always been very important to us. Our housekeepers work in pairs and we have safes in all the rooms. I also know that our housekeepers have been with us for years, some for a decade or longer, and that we have not had reports of items missing. Still, this is no excuse for me to be impolite or unprofessional. I was sure the pills were there and even looked for them closely when you checked out. Again, please accept my apologies. Sincerely, Sandra Hausaman (Manager) Dear Kate F., I responded to questions you had emailed before your arrival and so I am extra disappointed that you left feeling this way. We are a small hotel with only a few housekeepers, and we have known them all for a long time. I would leave any of them alone in my home and trust them implicitly. We could not find any complaint of insect bites, but now that I am aware we are looking into that. We regularly check for insects in our rooms especially since we have kitchens. Our reviews show that we care about our guests and want them to have a “home away from home” experience. Australian guests especially have felt this and have become one of our best fans. I am sorry that a member of my team failed to live up to our reputation and I want to assure you that we will work on preventing this in the future. Sincerely, Joseph Blum, Owner/Operator

I stayed in the hotel for a vacation. The rooms are spacious and it is just around the corner from Hollywood and Vine. Our room did not muffle noise outside, so it was pretty loud on the weekend. We were in the SW corner on the 2nd floor. The little balcony was great and the

Well depending on what time of night you will be roaming around hollywood. My partner and I didnt go walking after 10pm at night due to the homeless out. The shopping centre complex close to the suites was an easy getaway from the main street and only workers were situated at the rear of the shopping centre complex. We didnt reallu use public transport much and ensured the uber driver dropped us off at the front of the hotel. All in all, it is safe at a reasonable time to wonder around the shopping complex and surroundings

Dear Dark K, We do not offer our own transportation from LAX. Outside the luggage pick up area of each terminal there are waiting zones for each form of transportation. So you simply step out and look for the signs for the transportation you need. There are shared shuttle vans which charge about $18 per person but make other stops, such as Super Shuttle and Prime Time Shuttle. There is also the taxi area which charge about $60-$65 (depending on how many you are and how much luggage). There is also a Freeway Flyer Bus for about $8.00 per person but it takes you first to Hollywood Blvd next door to the Vine Street Metro Station where you have to switch to the RED LINE Metro Subway or a taxi and get off one Metro Station away at the Hollywood & Highland Mall next door to us (about a one block walk from exit of Metro on Hollywood Blvd through the mall to Orchid Avenue). Lastly if you have a smart phone you can download the applications for UBER or LYFT ride hailing services. They both now can be called to pick up at the airport second level. If these options do not work for you we can provide you with the contact information of a BLACK CAR (SUV) driver that can pick you up for around $90. If you do not already have a reservation, please contact us and we will be happy to provide availability and our best rates. We look forward to your visit. Sincerely, Sandra Hausaman, Manager

Hi Cathy D, Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Hollywood Orchid Suites. Universal Studios is using an algorithm system now and ticket prices are based on the current availability and so you need to purchase them online with them. The good news is that we are just one subway stop from Universal Studios using the Red Line Metro departing from the Hollywood & Highland Center next door which is $3.50 round trip or you could UBER there to save on the price of parking. We look forward to your stay. Sandra Hausaman, Manager

There are stairs, but they also have an elevator for all floors, rooms we had were quite large. Very easy for transport or shuttle to pick you up at hotel to go anywhere as Street is not too busy, probably a 5 minute walk to Hollywood boulevard along the back of the Doleby theatre with no stairs, fairly flat walk
