The hotel might be slightly hyped, but overall it lives up to expectations. Clean, quiet when you need it to be, modern, and happening. I stayed for business so location was not a determining factor. It's in a little bit of a nowhere zone for walking to other places, but the perfect place to be in the middle of it... More

This is one of my favourite stays, great, friendly service, and our room was just impressive with all hints of simple modern deco. We got rid of our rental car after our road trip seeing LA was our last stop, but this was located conveniently near bus stops to go to the typical LA attractions. Or if you like long... More

So you motor down Wilshire Blvd in LA and there is the Hotel Wilshire looking as modern and sleek as ever. Cool dark glass rises 6 stories in the sky. Pull into Valet (it's $33/nite, worth it, you'll get towed if you park out front for any length of time),, and the Valets greet you and park your car. So... More

Although it is a slight bit off the beaten path and overnight parking that seems a bit overpriced, this property still offers a lot of value for its nightly cost. As always with this brand, a responsive and helpful friendly staff at check in, a dog friendly room (complete with dog bed and food and water bowls) and a very... More

I stayed here for a works trip during awards season and this hotel is perfect for its location to my office. The rooms are large enough and very well furnished. The roof top bar is a nice touch and the food isn't bad. It got busy on Thursdays and Fridays which made for a good atmosphere too

I had been trying to book this property as I am I LA fairly often, but rates had always been inexplicably high. So I assumed there was a reason people were paying so much. I am still wondering. To start its very easy to pass right by. Its in a non descript building among lots of tall buildings. The valet... More

We (3 adult siblings) stayed at the Hotel Wilshire at the end of December 2014. It was my first trip to LA and initially it felt that we were in the middle of nowhere, close to (almost) nothing. But I was wrong. The tar pits and LACMA were just down the road (about 5 mins walk) and Farmers Market and... More

Stayed here for a couple nights on a business trip. The hotel was modern chic L.A. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful upon check-in. The room was very nice, large, clean and modern.

This hotel is in the middle of a business area but is still convenient to get around. The rooms are nice but small. The parking is easy and the staff is wonderful. More of a business place then a romantic getaway...
