Small hotel in a convenient location right next to the Academy Award Museum. Rooms are in good shape. We had a lovely room with an outdoor patio. Nespresso coffee is offered free of charge all day. Staff is friendly. Loved the free wine upon arrival. Good choice if you'd like to be close to West Hollywood. Would choose the hotel again.

We stayed here between Christmas and the New Year. We decided to splurge on the Penthouse, which is a great space with one major issue: elevator noise. The penthouse is on the top floor of the hotel, right next to the roof garden/pool/bar, but also right next to the elevator machinery. Every time one of the elevators would start, run or stop, the machinery would make noise. It was by no means a deafening noise, but loud enough to be disturbing and to keep us awake at night. Luckily, the elevators stop being used much during the middle of the night so we were able to get some sleep then. I searched for other penthouse reviews on here but no one had mentioned the elevator noise. We complained about it twice to the front desk, while also knowing that that they could not really do anything about it. (All the staff we interacted with were excellent, though.) On the plus side, the penthouse has a huge outdoor patio (photo below) and a nice living room that can also open onto the patio during nice weather. Another plus here was a daily happy hour in the lobby with a free beverage such as a glass of wine. When we booked this, we thought we were booking the Kimpton Palomar in Westwood, which is also on Wilshire and where we had stayed once before. But we ended up really enjoying the location of this one more than the Westwood location. We were able to walk to the L.A. County Museum of Art, the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, and places like the Grove shopping center and the Holocaust Museum. We also walked to the Beverly Center and parts of Beverly Hills. Due to the presence of street people in the area we would not have done much walking at night, but there were several very good casual restaurants close by (The Alchemist Cafe, Tawanna Thai, and Rocco's Pizza). We will definitely stay here again-- just not in the Penthouse.

I am developing a travel blog that will cover hotels, restaurants and travel. I will be posting no more than 5 Pros and 5 Cons. All reviews will be candid and well-researched. Please Note: We were lucky to meet the new GM for the hotel who was very cordial. She sent fruit to our room before we came back from Palm Springs. I am absolutely certain she will turn this small boutique Kimpton into a 5 star property! Pros: **Mid-Wilshire location which is not far from West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. **Excellent value for the area. Used IHG points. **Modern but small check-in area and downstairs. Amazing bathroom with glassed-in shower. **Personable service by the front desk person who wear round gold glasses and the valets, Silvio and Bryan--thank you so much! **Some of the breakfast items very tasty and excellent coffee. Cons: **The area is experiencing lots of construction and blocked off roads. ** Very high daily amenity and parking costs. **Confusion about how much breakfast should be and the continental was taken away which was promised to Platinum Elite IHG members! **Business area is spacious but no fruit and coffee not always hot.

We stayed here for 8 nights in November and the overall experience was really great. Starting with a very warm welcome at the reception, the staff throughout our stay was always very friendly, helpful and attentive. A very good touch was the buffet breakfast at the rooftop, which is complimentary for all guests. Very relaxed atmoshpere up there with awesome views. The choice was not big, but of very good quality, definitely not the standard American hotel breakfast. The room was of good size with a big bathroom, a comfy bed and enough space for our luggage. We also liked the design of the decor troughout the hotel. On the second floor, there is a nice communal space, where they offer free coffee and tea all day long, and some compilmentary wine in the early evening. We will stay here again, when we come back to LA.

Very convenient location, a nice and clean place. Also, pet-friendly hotel and it is always appealing because I can bring my pet without an extra fee. Exceptionally clean rooms and a helpful front desk service. Very satisfied with my stay.

Nice hotel, great location, comfortable rooms and very friendly staff from the front desk, the valets and the woman who was handling the breakfast in the AM….will stay here again and thanks ..we used points as a platinum, and I know this is a corp decision, but their daily amenity surcharge is a total money grab …Marriott also does this $ grab in Los Angeles

First, I would stay away from all Kimpton. Their  business model is to do new finishes on existing , out of date buildings. You will never get adequate lighting, electrical or water pressure.  My stay at the Kimpton at wilshire now takes the crown for the worst hotel ever.  We arrived around noon and asked off there was room ready, they said wait a few minutes. We dropped our stuff off and went for thanksgiving dinner. We can back exhausted and crawled into bed, but my husband noticed a "stain" on his side. we were so tired we didn't do anything about it. The next dayI wondered  if the sheets were changed, stain was still there and found more. On close examination, we both had blood stains near us and the sheets were never washed. So slept in sheets with bio hazard from another person!  when i asked if the sheets could be changed, the housekeeper came up to the room and handed me the sheets to change myself. We asked to change rooms after that and the next room also had dirty sheets. Finally the 3rd one was not soiled. there are so many things about this hotel that makes you feel like you are sleeping in a toilet, but soiled sheets from the previous guest tops them all. Just stay away if you value your health.

The overall stay was nice, we enjoyed the rooftop restaurant and bar. The front desk personnel as well as the security were very nice and hospitable. Furthermore, the valet was especially helpful. Thank you, Ryland, for all of your assistance!

Great location, great service, great amenitites, just..... The blackout curtains do not keep light out, not even at night (room 604). The complimentary breakfast is good, but is obvious that the staff in the morning is overwhelmed by the amount of people at breakfast. Ends up being a little messy Incredibly expensive parking

My stay at the Kimpton out in Wilshire was phenomenal!! From the hotel itself to the customer service! A young lady who I believed name was Maria helped my family and I out over in valet and she was lovely. Very respectful and sweet. She was also very patient! Helped us with our luggage. Will definitely recommend the Kimpton to family!
