Imagine the perfect Los Angeles hotel - where a hot pool and bar scene is balanced by a bright comfy guestroom when youre ready to retreat. The kind of hidden gem where people in the know go to see and be seen but without all the paparazzi in tow. Equal parts hidden escape and city vibe the Hotel Wilshire is contemporary chic stylish yet comfortable. Decked out in yellow and gray decor the hotel beams with sleek design complimented by stand-out Kimpton service and amenities. Seemingly secluded but within arms reach Hotel Wilshire is located in the heart of the famous Miracle Mile Mid-Wilshire Corridor with shopping and entertainment nearby. Beverly Hills and West Hollywood are just minutes away along with LAs most exciting attractions and entertainment venues including Los Angeles County Museum of Art Peterson Museum CBS Television City Pacific Design Center Paramount Studios Kodak Theater Hollywood and Highland Restaurant Row Sunset Strip and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Come experience a new boutique hotel in Los Angeles that echoes the rhythms of the city.

Second to Last Night

I was leaving LA after a few months there for work and wanted to get myself a hotel on Friday / Saturday as it was my birthday on Saturday. Stayed here on Friday. Location was a little out of the way (barely) and the room was a little small, but it was clean, nice, staff was great... And the rooftop was fantastic - for night cap drinks and brunch. I hesitate on four star value, but this is LA and hotels are very expensive.

Dinner and Theather

My wife and I stayed here because of the location. We had dinner at Lawry's and enjoyed a concert at the Saban Theatre all within a easy walk of the hotel. We did not discover the roof top restaurant and pool until just prior to checking out. Decent food and a wonderful view of the City. I wish we had stayed another night so that we could actually enjoy the hotel.

Not bad overall, but did not have the "wow factor"

It is good as a business hotel.

The Roof restaurant is not 4-star restaurant at all. It has a nice view but cold. No good selections of dinner. It is nice for free coffee at the 2nd floor. They should serve a free coffee and sell some continental food in the morning at the ROOF. At 2nd floor they should serve as a drinking place.

To see a friend

The hotel I stayed at is a bit pricey but worth every cent! The staff comped me with free breakfast for my stay, the valet service is exemplary and the front desk personnel bent over backwards to accomodate me when it appeared something was missing from my room after being out for the day. Nothing was missing (my error) and all I can say is that next time I head out to LA, I will certainly go through this site and book a room at this hotel. Bob :-)

Perfect!

I booked this hotel for its proximity to CBS Studios which was about a mile away, but walkable. I thought it was a really good value. I liked being able to go to the gym about a block away, LACMA close, hop-on hop-off tour bus close, staff very helpful, happy hour was nice, the room was great, and I liked the dining options across the street. I was very happy with my decision to stay here.

Great modern hotel

We came to the Wilshire for a weekend in LA. The location is amazing! Close to Beverly hills, Weho and UCLA where we attended a concert. The rooftop pool was also awesome. Sipping on cappuccinos in the morning while chilling by the pool and all of that with a Hollywood sign view. The points to improve are: -Room cleanliness. Let me explain, the room was very clean when we go there, but once inside the room, the daily service would be bare minimum (making the bed and re-hanging towels). - Rooftop bar service. I know you guys are packed, but waiting 40 minutes for a cappuccino is not an option. I would definitely come back here! But next time I'll have my cappuccino prior to hitting the pool.

Good hotel in a crummy neighborhood

Very attractive rooms and an amazing rooftop pool with decent restaurant. But no fitness center - you get free pass to LA fitness 4 blocks away. Many empty store front in surrounding blocks makes the neighborhood unappealing. Next time I'll look for same quality in a nicer neighborhood

Excellent hotel

The rooftop is great with really amazing views of L.A. and the Hollywood hills. The bed was comfortable and rooms were fresh and clean.
