I did not stay at the hotel but have been to this rooftop bar every time I visit Los Angeles. I absolutely love this place, the food, & the drinks. The views from the rooftop are amazing. It is a stunning venue for any kind of celebration. In this case I was celebrating my daughter's impending marriage. Enjoyed a beautiful... More

The Hotel Wilshire is a great little boutique hotel, that is ideal for the business traveler. I recently stayed one night for business and enjoyed my visit. The staff were friendly, and I was upgraded to a room on a higher floor (thank you!). The primary selling point of the hotel is the rooftop pool and restaurant with spectacular views... More

Hotel is well suited for the business travelers. Felt somewhat cramped for a family but as the saying goes it's all about location and its location is convenient for just about everything. UCLA is walking distance the area is clean and safe for walks with kids

Dear Traveler, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit this review. I think there's a chance you may have meant to review our sister property the Hotel Palomar, which is walking distance from UCLA. We are located in the Miracle Mile area, which is about 4 miles east of the Palomar. At any rate, we hope you'll... More

Walking through the front door gave me a sinking feeling. Oh no, not another uber-cold, too-hip place to stay. Wrong! Cesar, the Assistant Manager, made us feel right at home. Same thing for the servers on the rooftop restaurant. We had dinner there both nights because of the great food but also the fantastic service. Even the housekeeper left us... More

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

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
