The Hotel Wilshire Review: Located on L.A.’s famed Wilshire Boulevard, The Hotel Wilshire offers a truly central location in the sprawling City of Angels. It is especially appealing for shoppers; within walking or easy driving distance, guests will find Rodeo Drive, the celeb-fave boutiques of Robertson Boulevard and The Grove shopping mall and historic Farmer’s Market. A fresh, modern, low-key style sets the mood at this 74-room, LEED certified hotel. While the guest rooms and suites (including a penthouse and multimedia suites) are attractive, it is the rooftop that makes this place so appealing. The pool up here may be small, but the 360-degree views make up for it, taking in the Hollywood Hills, Miracle Mile and the downtown skyline. The roof is also the site of a cozy fire pit, trendy bar and The Roof on Wilshire restaurant, serving chef Eric Greenspan’s “bold American” cuisine. Among the hotel’s amenities are flat-screen HD LCD TVs, Lather bath products, complimentary Wi-Fi, a boardroom for small groups, a 24-hour business center and an electric vehicle charging station.
