My work colleague and I came to LA from Perth Australia.

We loved the hotel the minute we walked in. The reception staff were so friendly and helpful, the lobby was modern and funky and had nice relaxing music playing in the background. I enjoyed the flower decorations on the table in reception too. Nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed in a junior suite which had views of the Hollywood sign and hills. It was spacious and had a separate living area. The beds and pillows were sooooo comfy and the interior was fresh, modern and funky. The shower was beautiful too, didn't want to get out!!

The rooftop bar had great views, service was good and there was a wide selection of drinks and food. Be careful, you might just not want to leave!!

Location was good as it was only a few minutes walk to the hop of, hop off tourist bus service. There were some restaurants and bars nearby but it felt like more of a museum/corporate location. This was fine as it was still only 15 mins or so by taxi to Hollywood and LA is so spread out so you can't be close to eveything!! The location felt safe and was an interesting area to be in.

I would definately recommend this property to clients and friends!!

Thanks from Colleen, Amanda and Sam from 'Globetrotter Corporate' Perth.

My husband and I stayed in The Hotel Wilshire for a week in mid-January while visiting family who lived nearby in Los Angeles. The hotel has been recently opened and is very modern and exceptionally well appointed. I appreciated the fact that it is a LEED certified hotel. We stayed in a junior King suite and had a second floor room overlooking the street. It was a very sunny room and and had an incredible open shower beside a giant jacuzzi tub. The living room area had a 2nd flat screen TV, but needed more lighting as it was very dark at night.

The rooftop bar and restaurant were great and we appreciated the heaters as it was quite chilly during our stay. The hotel is very close to both LACMA and the Zimmer Children's Museum as well as several parks. The front office manager, O'Neill, was exceptionally friendly and helpful as were all the other staff at the front desk and the staff in the restaurant. O'Neill gave us a tour of different rooms prior to actual check-in so we could choose one that suited our needs. That's great service! We will definitely stay here again when we visit LA--this hotel is a great find!

Enjoyed my week-long stay for a business trip. The location is mid-Wilshire, which is an odd mix, but I loved being able to walk over to LACMA to enjoy the latest exhibition. The hotel definitely lives up to quality of Luxe hotels -- good service, clean rooms, comfy beds, nice bath products (Lather), and free wifi! Oh, and I loved the shower -- slick contemporary design and roomy.

Booked this hotel for a quick recent one night stay. The location is probably better for a business traveller than those on vacation, but at the end of the day it's LA and you probably have a car anyway!

Fit and finish were excellent, my room had a view of a parking lot, but frankly the room itself was so nice that it really didn't matter. The bathroom is just as nicely appointed and a good size.

If you do want a view, the rooftop bar has some stunning views of the Hollywood Hills and the signature "mule" cocktails were really great.

From a customer service perspective, front desk staff were average at best, but the bar staff and the valets were excellent. Really the only drawback was the poor wifi.

All in all, I was pleasantly surprised and would stay here again if returning for work.

We enjoyed our very quiet and centrally located stay in LA this past week. Hotel Wilshire is within walking distance to many museums, restaurants and shops. The room was very clean and pleasant.
