Nice room, lovely rooftop terrace with views, and very attentive staff. Hotel is located in walking distance to the LA County Museum of Art and the tar pits. Also a short walk to the Saban Theatre. Caffe Latte across the street is perfect for breakfast or lunch. Valet parking with tax is $36 per night. There is a private garage... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Wilshire for two nights over Thanksgiving weekend. We chose the hotel because we're huge Kimpton fans. We always direct our family to Kimpton properties when staying in our hometown (San Francisco), and we also patronize Kimpton when traveling. The hotel location itself, we found is a plus and a con. Plus that... More

We did a family overnight trip to Los Angeles from San Diego to visit the La Brea Tar Pits and the LA Auto Show. We found The Hotel Wilshire on TripAdvisor and we really had a nice overnight stay there. We rented the "Sunset 1 Bedroom King Suite" which had two separate rooms, one with a couch and sofa bed...

This hotel is similar to Kimpton properties throughout the US: stylish without being trendy, comfortable but not luxurious, and staffed by able employees. What makes the Hotel Wilshire unusual for LA, though, is that it's walking distance to a number of attractions. It's just a few minutes to LACMA and other museums on Museum Mile, and a few minutes more... More

Dear Traveler, I love the title of your review! Walking in LA is a novel concept, isn't it? The central location of our hotel is definitely a big draw, I will admit! I'm so glad that as a former Angeleno, you got to experience some old stomping grounds on foot! So happy to hear that you enjoyed the modern comforts... More

We stayed here for a night for an appointment at the Belgian Consulate on our way to Tucson for Thanksgiving. We got there around 1pm for a 2:30pm appointment. The room wasn't ready yet, not that we expected to be, but that wasn't a problem because we went to the roof top restaurant and had lunch. It was a nice... More

We stayed here recently (my birthday gift from my spouse) when we were visting the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The room was very nice, modern and clean - they have the BEST hookup for computer, video, etc. that I have ever seen, so if you travel with a lap top and some DVD's you will be delighted. The...

I've stayed at this hotel several times and appreciate the personal, friendly service each time. The staff are helpful and nice. The rooms are small with contemporary decor, clean and nice amenities. I will stay again on my next visit to this area. Recommend you join the Kimpton loyalty program to receive some room credit and other small perks during... More

I stayed here on business for 2 nights in November 2014. The staff were very nice and helpful, the room was generous in size and very comfortable. The bath was like a swimming pool, I thoroughly enjoyed myself here.

This hotel is beautiful from the second you walk in your greeted by a family front desk staff. The main lobby is a bit small but then you go to the second floor and its much larger, with a very enjoyable complimentary wine hour. The rooms are beautifully appointed and modern. The pool and view of Hollywood is breathtaking. For... More

We were in CA for nine days, this hotel is most like the East Coast Kimpton hotels we love and stay at regularly. Our room was beautiful, the staff was great and shockingly we were able to walk around LA right from the hotels doors. The views were stunning, from our room and even more spectacular from their roof top... More
