Angel - He's a Vampire - He's Not Invisible.
In the episode "Dear Boy" Kate and a group of cops storm into Angel's hotel to arrest him. When she finds that he isn't there, she orders a couple of officers to be posted outside the building in case he comes back. Near the end of the episode (the next night) there is a shot of the outside of the hotel - you can clearly see Angel's car parked outside and in the next shot he is shown sitting in his room.
How did he get in?
If Kate was so intent on catching him, would she only post officers there for one night? If they were there, how could they not notice the very man they were meant to be watching for pull up in a large black convertible and stroll in the front door?

If you paid more attention on this specific episode, Kate the police detective found out that Dar-la was a vampire long time ago. So she now knows that Dar-la was lying to her. So think about it, once she knew the truth, she must have told the two officers that were waiting outside, to leave along with the others. Why would you keep officers around if you knew the truth? So basically they will be standing guard for nothing if Angel was innocent. That is how he got in the hotel.

Well, since Angel is a vampire, and cannot go out into the broad daylight, he has an underground entrance that is talked about and seen in a few different episodes. That is how he eludes Kate and her security guards.

Cordelia explains it when she says "It's not that vampires don't photograph; it's just that they don't photograph well" after looking at his picture in a police photo.

I noticed that too, so thanks for the info. As for the person who posted that vampires can't be photographed, I thought that too, but it's not a no-no. Joss Whedon's vampires are different from the more common Dracula ones, or from vampires from other films, for instance in some films they can fly, but in Angel/Buffy they can't, so it's not a mistake, just a different take.

If you have read different vampire stories, you will notice that each story is different. Buffy/Angel is no different. Stoker was not the original creator of Vampire lore. Vampire lore, in one incarnation or another, has been around for centuries, long before any European author started selling books about it (the first book wasn't Dracula, by the way). In any case, Dracula wasn't your run of the mill Joss Whedon vampire anyway... (notice how he turned to mist instead of just staying dead when Buffy staked him). So, if he happen to break the mold a bit compared to other vampires in the show, so what?
