Arrival- very good. We were welcomed warmly by the reception staff and gave us all the information in and out of the hotel. Rooftop restaurant- could be better. The first night we dine was perfect and service was good. 2nd night was not really great and we asked for things that's supposed to be served prior like menu, cutleries, etc....

My family and I recently stayed at the Kimpton Hotel Wilshire. In the past, we have had outstanding experiences at Kimpton hotels. This one was not on par or even close to those previous experiences. Upon booking, I requested early check-in and a quiet room, which other Kimpton properties have bent over backwards to accommodate. Not only were we not...

Very clean and quiet hotel. Beds are very comfortable, and the rooms are very well appointed. Nice extra touches are the bathrobes, newspapers, morning coffee bar and the $10 credit towards anything from the min-bar. This is a new hotel that was very conveniently located to where we wanted to be at Thanksgiving. In the previous seven years we had...

I am going to cut to the chase. The carpet in our room was filthy and the couch was filthier. The coach looked like something you would find by a dumpster. Stained with dog hair and food all over it. Are you kidding me. $500 per night after taxes. The bell hop was embarrassed when he came in. He's aid...

This is potentially a gem of a hotel. The property is centrally located, truly unique in its layout and affordable. The rooftop bar/restaurant is spectacular. But here's the rub. The room we stayed in had so many maintenance issues that seemed to imply a level of neglect that was surprising. Yet these issues are fixable (e.g., curtain pull missing, slow...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Hearing directly from our guests allows us to continually improve our product and service. I'm so sorry you experienced these maintenance issues in your room - I completely agree this is unacceptable and highly uncharacteristic of our hotel. I hope you will give us a second chance to...

I will stay here again, if only because this hotel makes Los Angeles a walkable city. When the Mid-Wilshire metro station opens, this location will be even more compelling. As to the hotel: a mob of us stayed here for a family wedding. The front desk staff was wonderful and always helpful, and gave the wedding couple a free upgrade...

I recently worked on an episode of Dancing with the Stars at CBS Television City in Los Angeles. Surprisingly, there aren’t a lot of hotel options near the studio which is directly adjacent to the Grove. We ended up staying four nights at the Kimpton Hotel Wilshire about 1.5 miles away. It’s a very nice hotel in a predominantly business...

After the dust has settled on our trip, it's hard to explain my thoughts on the hotel. Maybe part of my thoughts are aligned with the fact LA isn't a great city, but Santa Monica and surrounding areas are amazing! The hotel is located in an ideal location with access to all areas quite easy, but renting a car is...

This is generally a very nice hotel. The rooms are rather small though neat and clean. There is no onsite gym but you can go to one several blocks away. The hotel staff is very helpful. The bed is comfortable though my room seems to get a lot of noise from above and outside.

We stayed here with our 14 month old and checkin after a long flight was simple and quick. A cot had been setup as requested but was a bit basic, no bedding has been provided apart from a mattress sheet, not sure if this is normal....?
