The Hotel Wilshire aspires to be a hip, cutting-edge hotspot, but it lacks several vital elements. Foremost, the service -- while mostly friendly -- is absent-minded and painfully, shockingly slow. Questions like "may I have an iced green tea?" are met with bewilderment instead of "I could bring you a hot green tea and a glass of ice, would that work?" The rooftop would be great if the food served up there wasn't so greasy and tasteless. There are very few light options which is unusual in LA. While the rooms are modern and clean, albeit generic, the hallways are old-fashioned and depressing. The lack of a gym is also disappointing for a hotel that markets itself as luxurious. All in all, The Hotel Wilshire feels like a "wannabe". It does not achieve what it promises. However, I will applaud them for their eco-friendless, that is always a good thing, no matter what else the hotel is missing.
