“Exellent hotel, excellent location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! Initially I booked it because it was the only place I could find that had a separate bedroom (for my daughter who is 3) and that was still within the budget. The next time I go back that will not be the only reason I stay there! All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and most especially Patricia who serves breakfast in the morning. As described on their website the place used to be an apartment block and I wasn't expecting much when we arrived but I was pleasantly surprised. The room we stayed in was really spacious, beds were comfortable and don't be deceived by the size of the hairdryers - better than the one I own at home! Onto the next great thing about this hotel.. Location, location, location!! Literally across the road is a tunnel that leads into the Hollywood/Highland centre, a short walk through this and you are standing on the Walk of Fame across from the El Capitan theatre. A short walk to the right is the Dolby Theatre, Hard Rock Cafe and the chinese theatre. A short walk to the left is the Metro rail and buses, which take you pretty much anywhere (and the hotel has a computer you can use for free to plan your trip). I would definitely stay here again, the price was great especially when considering that you have a full kitchen at your disposal to help save a bit of money when eating out but most importantly I don't think you can beat the location.

If you want to stay close to everything in Hollywood then this is the place. Very economical and the rooms were comfortable. Encountered a few problems though: if you drive a large 4WD or a van, it may not fit in the underground carpark (this was a headache however there was a large carpark across the road) and left my watch in the room - rang and two emails later - still no reply.
.
However if you have a family and on a budget - then this is the place.

OrchidSuites_Manager, Manager at Hollywood Orchid Suites, responded to this review, 4 December 2013
Thank you for your review of the Hollywood Orchid Suites. We appreciate your recommending us as "the place" to stay in Hollywood! We have a great staff who deliver excellent customer service, a well-maintained property, clean rooms and for a reasonable price, especially considering our location, as you noted, which is close to everything.

After reading your review, we retrieved the note that our front desk clerk wrote when you called three days after checking out to say that you may have left your watch by the pool (not the room) and you asked that we call you if we find it. By that time the watch had not been turned in nor had it been found by our staff and the room had already been cleaned and rented for three days. However, we kept your note in case it did turn up. Had we known you were waiting for a call back we surely would have done so and sincerely apologize for not doing so anyhow. Additionally, I searched our email accounts and found no email from you. We always check and answer our emails several times throughout each day.

Concerning the height of our garage opening, we state the height limit clearly on our confirmation letters and on our website. Guests with bigger vehicles (vans, large SUVs) can park next door for a fee.

We enjoyed meeting you and your family and appreciate your choosing to stay with us while visiting Hollywood! We have a lot of Australian visitors and feel a lot of love for our Aussie guests!

Sincerely,

Sandra Hausaman, Manager

This place is simply amazing value for the price. Clean, safe, friendly, comfortable, huge rooms with nice bedding OMG simply fantastic. Anyone on a family tip to LA and in particular Hollywood would be stupid not to stay here. The staff were wonderful and accommodating inviting us to have breakfast after a long 14 hr flight and 2 hour line crawling at LAX. they then kept our bags whilst we were heading to Universal studios with tap cards sold at the hotel. Then on the day we checked out they kept our bags until 7pm when our shuttle was to arrive. The room had 2 huge king sized beds and a roll out. 2 lcd tvs, a kitchen, huge fridge complimtary, water, coffee and tea plus some lollies to top itall off. This place is 30 seconds walk from hollywood and highland and a couple of minutes from the walk of fame. Fantastic, thank you hollywood orchid suites and those who contribute to tripadvisor, the only regret was not staying longer!

If you don't want to waste money on expensive hotels choose these Suites. We stayed here for 2 weeks in October 2013 and were 100% happy with our choice. We booked a two queen bed suite (two ladies) which was spacious and provided all we needed and more (see website for pics). The beds were supremely comfortable and the suite was serviced daily. Constant hot water. Really efficient shower over a low sided bath with wide edge that one could sit on the side of. The complementary breakfast available until 10am and was sufficient to keep us going for several hours, though don't expect a cooked breakfast. We found the staff extremely pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Two washing machines and dryers are available in the basement, a brilliant idea for those travelling light in order to have room for shopping! The entrance and reception desk are monitored 24 hours and we felt totally secure. The location is fantastic - opposite the Loews Hotel entrance and immediately behind the Hollywood & Highland Centre, Information Bureau, Hollywood Boulevard, the metro station and bus stops We used metro rail and metro buses for the whole fortnight, all of which are extremely cheap and efficient and we were travelling within minutes of leaving Hollywood Orchid Suites.

We are certainly going to stay there again. Don't hesitate if you are on a budget but need good accommodation or don't want to pay over the odds for things you will never use in expensive hotels.

Room Tip: We chose a room at the rear away from the road.

I have just stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful experience. Sandra and her staff are warm, friendly, accommodating and efficient. The room we had couldn't have been more perfect. It fit my friend and I marvelously.
If you are looking for a place to stay that is within walking distance to all the glitz that Hollywood has to offer, this is the place for you. It's less than a 1/2 block from Hollywood and Highland and you can access all other venues with a convenient and inexpensive cab ride.
The parking is secure and easily accessed. There are full kitchens and clean fresh and comfortable bedding. The housekeeping staff is super! Best value in the Hollywood area by far!

Room Tip: If you are looking for more quiet, request a room on the 3rd floor.

As part of a west coast trip, we were only staying in LA for a couple of days, and were therefore looking for a hotel with a central location. We booked the Hollywood Orchid on the basis of Tripadvisor recommendations, and were delighted with our choice. As others have said, the location is brilliant, literally only a step away from the Boulevard; nonetheless, felt very safe. Easy access to the subway and onward travel to other areas of the city. The building itself isn't attractive and looks like what it is; an older style apartment block. Don't let this put you off; the suites are spacious and well equipped and we made full use of the kitchen. My husband and I had the bedroom at the back(which was surprisingly quiet), whilst our teenagers had the front room next to the walkway. This leads me to the only negative: any noise from others walking past was very audible and some guests were not as considerate as we would have liked. This was a very minor issue and in no way affected our enjoyment of the stay. There is an underground car park (no longer free) but we had a high vehicle and were unable to gain access. This wasn't a problem as there is parking at the mall opposite. Finally, breakfast was ample and the kids enjoyed relaxing the pool at the end of a day's sightseeing. Fantastic value all round!

Room Tip: Rooms with fewer people passing likely to be quieter

Very homely feel to it the beds and pillows were comfortable. It had a nice kitchen and balcony the bathroom was nice and clean you tip the housekeeper there but they do a good job. The only bad thing I can say is the water pressure can be low and the walls are thin but other then that the location of it was smack bang on right behind Dolby theatre which you take a short walk way through to highland mall or you can walk behind Chinese manns theatre if you want to miss the crowd.the front desk are very helpful and nothing's to much to ask about they will tell you the best way to get around as well.there is a fresh and clean supermarket as well which is only about a 5 min walk it is a actual supermarket so they sell the normal stuff I would stay there again for the location
