Our second honeymoon stop was at this little hotel tucked into easy walking distance to the LACMA. They could not have been nicer to us, having arrived extremely early for our reservation. We were treated wonderfully. Check-in was easy but I was expecting a bellhop. Perhaps there was one and we just missed him/her. They offer bicycles to get around... More

Completed two stays at this hotel over the past few months (March and April 2015). Front desk staff provided an outstanding welcome on both visits. In both cases Annie went above and beyond in making sure we were comfortable - she even provided a welcome note and treats for our dog Archie. Rooms and suites are extremely comfortable and the...

Kimpton hotels offer a wonderful brand experience. I enjoy a highly-service minded staff and stylish decor from the lobby through to the beautifully appointed rooms. This Wilshire property is an absolute delight. Centrally located in Westwood with access to Beverly Hills, Brentwood, and the 405 Freeway. It's priced perfectly for the accommodations and I'm sure I'll be back. I especially... More

I feel like the rooftop bar restaurant is a hidden gem. Great views good drinks good food and a great place to just go and chill w friends or family on a nice sunny day. The mimosa carafe is a good deal. There's lots of eye candy too

Perfectly clean room with everything you could... More

I love this hotel! I have recently started staying Kimpton and it is a decision I do not regret. This hotel is often within my business per diem, is extremely close to local museums and close to the hospital (where I work). They have a great on-site restaurant with a killer view, and offer access to nearby LA Fitness for... More

We stayed here just one night while getting our visas from the Brazilian Consulate. The staff was outstanding. Everyone went out of his way to help us. It was a perfect location. The restaurant on the roof was lively and the drinks and service were good.

Dear Traveler, I simply love hearing that you thought your stay was outstanding! We are actually a great choice for quick stays. Given our petite size, you can come and go from the property quickly and efficiently. And being right across the street from several consulates certainly helps as well. I hope you'll be back to see us during a... More

We chose this hotel because it is close to our daughter's apartment. Although the hotel itself was pleasant, and the staff very nice, we did not really like the location very much because that stretch of Wilshire is a bit featureless and grimy. However, just a ten minute walk away and you can be at LACMA, and if you wish... More

My recent stay at the Hotel Wilshire exceeded my expectations. This Kimpton hotel lives up to all the best about the brand - comfort, service and good food. The staff was friendly, knowledgable and dedicated to making our stay prefect from check-in to check-out. They even acknowledged my cat at check-in with a welcome card and treat. This is a... More

Dear Traveler, Thank you for submitting this awesome review! I am overjoyed to hear that we exceeded your expectations and what you've come to expect from a Kimpton hotel. I think I may have personally gushed over your cat when you arrived. We rarely get cats here (dogs have taken over!), so I get so excited when we see one... More

Exceptionally accommodating when we requested an accessible room. (But disabled visitors should specific their disability when requesting since they have different types of rooms for the audio-visual vs mobility disabled traveller) . Great wine tasting in evening. Pool was lovely. Clean rooms. Very attentive service. Great bicycles for local sightseeing. Appreciated the umbrella in yoga, the yoga mat, and calling... More
