“Nice room, well located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2011

We stayed here for an event at the El Rey Theatre, and wanted to be able to walk to the venue. The location was close enough that we decided that we could walk to and from the venue. The last two blocks of Wishire after LACMA are a wee bit on the sketchy side, but it didn't seem to be dangerously so. There's a Ralphs grocery store only four blocks away for groceries. And there are a number of restaurants on Wilshire in that same area.

There's only street parking, which is a slight downside. We were fortunate to get parking right in front of the hotel. And we had a room that fronted on Orange, so there was plenty of light. I'm not sure what it's like for rooms more in the interior of the hotel. And while the walls did indeed seem fairly thin, sound from other rooms only seemed to be of issue when close to the adjoining walls. That was only an issue in the bathroom for our room.

When we attend another event at the El Rey again we'll probably stay here again.

Surprisingly good hotel for the price, especially if you get a 10% off deal like we did through TripAdvisor. We stayed in Room 209, end of the hallway with no adjacent rooms, so there wasn't any noise problem. There's a mini-fridge in the room which is really helpful and not mentioned in some descriptions of the amenities (would be even better if it were accompanied by a microwave). Parking is only on the street, but we didn't have any problems finding spots within a few block radius.

Staff are very pleasant and helpful, room is sparse, clean and devoid of style and view but the walls are thin as paper, I stayed in a room at the end of the hall that had a washer or some machinery going all day. Good location and good price.

If you need a retreat from the hustle of LA - the Wilshire Crest is your best bet. Quiet, in a residential neighborhood, but one block's walk from restaurants - the Wilshire Crest offers large comfortable immaculate rooms, excellent beds and linens, spacious work areas and vanities, expanded digital cable and large TV's - everything a business or family traveller could want. This is not the right hotel if you want loud parties, a pool, a bar, or a restaurant open till 2 AM - but the complimentary breakfast is amazing.

I have found my oasis.

We were in Los Angeles for five days and enjoyed our stay here. The staff was hospitable and knowledgeable. Our room was clean and comfortable. The location, for us, was perfect be it for a Dodgers game, the Getty Museum and Villa, or the beaches. The neighborhood is very pleasant as well. If much of your trip to Los Angeles is based on westside activities, then add this hotel to your list of candidates.

This hotel is in a GREAT location! We rented a car in L.A for the week and were happily surprised to find everything we wanted to go to was no more than 10 miles away. As others have mentioned, the Farmer's Market, The Grove, and others are all within walking distance.

Overall, the staff are very nice and helpful, the rooms are exceptionally clean and large for the price you are paying. Also, the free wifi is a huge plus! We chose this hotel specifically because it was the ONLY hotel we could find in our price range where no reviews mention bedbugs! I did not want to come home with that problem and you won't if you stay here.

The only very minor gripe I had was that they mention "free parking" and I didn't realize it was street parking. In the end, it was fine because we found a parking spot every night, even when we got in late. If you are looking for a hotel with a lot of amenities, then this is not the place for you. That is the only reason why I can think that someone would give this hotel a lower rating. Its a great place to stay in LA and if I ever get the chance to visit again, this is the hotel I will choose!

Stayed at the Wilshire for 3 nights- the location is excellent, quiet street very close to the grove shopping mall and to the LACMA and the Farmers market.
The room is very basic, clean but no view or any special amenities, the walls are quite thin, so you can easily hear your neighbors and walking at the corridor.
The breakfast is very poor- they need to decide to upgrade it to a reasonable standard or not to offer it at all..
