This is not what you expect from Kimpton, certainly not worth $400. per night. Room was stuffy and had cleaning odors that wouldnt go away, the pool deck was small and not good. Dont stay here!

The location is great. The rooftop pool is ridiculously miniature and it’s in the center of a restaurant so you could never really use it. The pictures on the website are VERY misleading. The rooms are rundown... dirty windows, sagging couches. The hotel fire alarm went off in the middle of the night and it was a false alarm that has happened before. They said it’s because the sensor is by a vent or something like that. They should fix this!

Mostly very modern and clean but a bit rundown/unsightly in a few places (e.g. stain on the carpet.) Excellent staff and service.

Hotel was clean and modern. Rooftop amenities and restaurant exceeded expectations. Great value for the price paid.

This was close to where we needed to be but still over a mile walk to Park La Brea, it is very close to some great museums and we felt safe in the area.

The Kimpton Hotel Wilshire was what one expects from a Kimpton: excellent service, trendy, comfortable, and lots of cool touches. From check in to check out, from a great rooftop breakfast to a comfortable room -- this hotel made a trip to Los Angeles fun and relaxing,.

We selected this hotel for its proxmity to The Ivy in Beverly Hills (our plan for breakfast) and LACMA. The rooftop dining was excellent. The food and views superb! It would be a nice touch if they offered blankets as the wind made it very cold even with the heating lamps. They offered a complimentary wine hour once we checked in. They let us keep our car in valet parking well past check out time while we enjoyed our day at the museum. They had cute bicycles to borrow but we didn't have time to use. The MAIN reason I didn't give this hotel a higher rating is the price! We thought it was too expensive. The rooms were nice but not beautiful. The hallways were dark and needed to be vacuumed. The cleaning cart was left in hallway even in early evening. I expected a bit more "luxury" for the price.

Location is great! Between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Staff was friendly: front desk greeted us by name, valet asked about our day and gave us recommendations when asked. In and out valet was very efficient and convenient.

My stay at Hotel Wilshire did not make me want to return to that hotel in the future. I booked a room with a patio. Per the pictures they advertise the patio gives you a view of the pool. Well my patio did not come with a view of the pool or the city. I had a view of a concrete wall, which was connected to the hotel. The wall does have artwork on it however when visiting LA I do not want to see a wall, I want to be able to stand on the patio and see the city. if i want to see a wall with art on it, I would go to an art museum. Now on to room services...on 2 different occasions I received dirty towels and wash rags. I informed the gentleman at the front desk that we received dirty rags and towels. His reply was he would make room service aware of this. So I'm hoping that this issue has been taken care of. Lastly, our valet guy, Danny, was rude. As a valet he is supposed to open my door. Well that didn't happen... Would I stay at this hotel again, the answer is NO!

Great hotel. Great staff. Rooftop view is very nice.

Hotel Wilshire is a great little hotel if you're visiting people east of the 405. Great staff from the lobby to the garage to the great rooftop restaurant and pool. They helped me with my computer they brought the car up pronto they let a single ginger ale or orange juice slide and they did a great job making up the room and keeping it well supplied. It was super convenient and super pleasant.

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. I am traveling quite a bit and can be a bit picky about hotels. This place is excellent, though. The roof top bar / pool is a great place to hang out - during the day and at night. Beautiful views and great people. The room is very modern and comfy. Everything was top notch and the hotel crew was most accommodating as well. This is my to-go-to place next time I am in L.A.

The room was clean and a little bit small. The lobby is small but the staff are friendly

The hotel was very clean and the staff were very nice. The restaurant bar outside on the 6th floor was great. The only questionable item not mentioned when I made the reservation was the over $30.00 charge for parking.

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.

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"

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.

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.

nice hotel but i wouldn't stay there again.

This is what you see when you stand on the patio. The artwork is beautiful however I am visiting and I would love to enjoy to view of the mountains that is behind this wall. However, it's not possible because of the wall.
