The Orlando on Third details renovation

The Orlando on Third—a boutique, family-owned hotel that has been welcoming guests to West L.A. for nearly three decades—is undergoing a complete renovation, including the opening of a stylish new restaurant called, The Churchill by the owners behind the popular West Hollywood bar and eatery, The Hudson.

The multi-million dollar renovation means all new guestrooms for the property—with higher ceilings and bigger bathrooms; high-tech, two-bedroom suites; refurbished pool area décor, furniture and landscaping; updated fitness center and massage room; all new lighting, signage, elevator interiors as well as completely new roof, air conditioning and plumbing; enhanced space for small meetings and an all-new street-facing restaurant. Renovations are slated for completion by the end of September 2011.

“We’re very proud to unveil the newest chapter in the Orlando’s nearly 30 year history,” explains Hotel Managing Director, Tohnia Miller. “This renovation is really a gift to our guests and neighbors who have been so loyal over the years and to future guests who are looking for a place that feels nearly as comfortable as home when they need to travel to L.A.”

Originally opened in 1986 as The Beverly Plaza Hotel, The Orlando has been a constant in a neighborhood that has evolved into the trendy, urban destination that it is today. The fashionable but friendly hotel is known for hosting entertainment and retail business travelers during the week and savvy L.A. visitors on the weekends.
