Tangerine is a new boutique hotel offering its guests an eclectic and colorful backdrop that promises to enhance their visit to Los Angeles, Burbank and Hollywood. Our thoughtfully appointed rooms are a fresh reinterpretation of the classic motel room; although contemporary and minimalist in design, we have treated them as individual canvases where bold strokes of color and imagery have been used to create thirty whimsical and exciting spaces with distinct personalities. And, although no two rooms are like, they all are equally appointed with all the modern amenities expected by our guests, including LCD TVs, iPod audio and video docking stations, complimentary DSL, in-room coffee/tea, and bathrooms highlighted by concrete floors, caesarstone countertops and Grohe fixtures. Elements of glass, concrete, metal, and cedar wood envelop a sun soaked patio area ideal for swimming and relaxing. Located at the epicenter of all things media, Tangerine is within walking distance of Warner Brothers Studios and within minutes of Universal Studios, Walt Disney Studios, Dreamworks Animation and Hollywood and the Sunset Strip. Our location is further enhanced by proximity to a large and diverse selection of restaurants, coffee houses and bars within walking distance. For the value-conscious business or leisure traveler searching for an independent alternative with an undefinable flair, Tangerine has a room waiting for you.

Birthday Weekend in LA

Booked this room for a weekend getaway for me and my boyfriend in LA. Location was perfect because it was only a short drive to Universal City, where they were having Hollywood Horror Nights, and very close to The Castaway, where we had my boyfriend's birthday brunch. The room was clean, spacious, and modern. The bed was also extremely comfortable. AC worked well and there was a mini fridge, and BVLGARI toiletries. The late night/morning staff was a bit unprofessional - when I called in the AM, I was greeted with a "What's up?" Other than that, I had no complaints. Lots of street parking and on-site parking both in the front of the hotel and back side.

Really pretty motel

Tangerine is best described as a beautiful -motel There is a perception that operations like this are generally less expensive. The owners of Tangerine have made bold design decisions and really made this, what looks like, a once run down motel into a shining gem. Is it worth the extra costs? Not sure. I immediately start looking for things that I would not get (or gladly pay for) in a "motel". The soaps, shampoo etc are high end. The decor is spectacular. I did not want any housekeeping service so I will not comment however I did receive a couple of calls confirming my choice. They have a coffee dispenser in the cool "lobby" that has like 20 options for coffee. Morning Danishes are becoming ubiquitous so I'm not overly impressed but someone has to pay for it. The location is something you will want to pay a little extra for. It is very close to freeway -without noise. You're only 20 minutes from downtown LA. Tangerine does not have the model to offer the types of experience you get in a "hotel" that's not bad, it just is. If you are looking for a boutique hotel experience this may be too much "motel". If you want a motel experience, this is high-end.

Very happy

Of the 3 hotels I've stayed at on a recent trip to the LA area, the Tangerine was the nicest. The staff is very nice and pleasant, the location is very convenient. It is very clean with a hip vibe. I'll definitely stay here again.

Friendly convenient oasis

Rooms were clean, nicely decorated and the location was super. It is away from the main stream. The front desk staff was exceptionally helpful with directions to points of interest and places to dine. The morning pastries were very fresh and good. Top quality place!

Perfect hotel if you need a place in Burbank

This hotel doesn't have all the amenities such as gym, in room movies, valet parking, etc. But if you want a affordable hotel in a great location that is clean with a great staff, this is it. I checked in Monday and didn't touch my car until Friday. I was in walking distance to everything I needed. Plus they offer free parking and free WIFI.

Great hotel in the heart of the movie industry

The Tangerine Hotel is in a great location. One of the best Mexican restaurants in town is right next door and it is within walking distance of many other great restaurants. The staff was very friendly and efficient, the rooms were quiet and beautifully decorated and it even had a lighted magnified make up mirror! And all this at a bargain price.

Great Location

We booked here because we were going to Universal Studios. The beds are super comfortable and there are great places to eat very close to hotel, within walking distance. The breakfast rolls they serve are fantastic too. Only negative is the bathroom could use updating.

The Mexican restaurant is steps away and the Italian one right across the street is super. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but the food is great.
