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

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.
