U.S. News Review

Located about a half mile from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the La Brea Tar Pits, The Hotel Wilshire is a convenient place to rest your head close to Los Angeles' Miracle Mile. The Roof on Wilshire, the hotel's rooftop restaurant, offers panoramic views of L.A.'s skyline and the Hollywood Hills, not to mention New American cuisine produced by celebrity chef, Eric Greenspan. Inside each of the hotel's 74 rooms, you'll find LCD TVs and iPod docking stations. Some guests say that though the lobby of this Kimpton property was quite posh, the rooms felt a little cramped and late-night noise was a problem. What's more, many visitors felt uneasy walking around the surrounding area at night, but note its convenience to public transportation.
