Never knew this hotel existed if it wasn't for a private event I attended. A cute boutique hotel in the center of the most busiest street in Los Angles, Wilshire blvd. It's very small and very intimate. There are no big signs, just a normal sign in the center of the entrance of the hotel. Valet parking is free if you are there for an event and it is so convenient and it's literally a few steps to the door of the tiny lobby.
Got a chance to tour the trendy "Little room"! Kate Walsh (TV star from Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice rented the Penthouse and Patio for her private event. The Penthouse is pretty small compare to other hotel's penthouses, but comfortable clean and bright!
Got a chance to hang out at the Patio and 2nd floor lounge where I ordered their Grilled Cheese sandwich which was delicious! I didn't want to head back home early and be stuck in traffic so the staff was nice enough to give me a key to the business center where I chilled with a few hours going on line. :-)
I will definitely use this place as a small gathering or networking event. I love the poolside deck on the roof top! It's small and intimate, perfect for a smaller events or party!!Recommended for:

This cute little boutique hotel is on Wilshire Blvd. between Beverly Hills, near the Miracle Mile and Koreatown. A great property for business travelers it has great amenities and the staff is wonderful. The highlight is the rooftop bar with sweeping views, great wines and yummy cocktails. This is a great option for those that want a nice hotel that won't break the wallet.Recommended for:

This is a wonderful boutique hotel that is the perfect mix of trendy and casual. We stayed here for a friend's birthday party once and the rooms were very nice, with plush bedding and all the amenities to make you feel right at home. The best part is the roof deck pool and restaurant. I've had both breakfast and dinner here and neither disappoint. The chef used to work at the now closed Foundry on Melrose so the food is fantastic, and it's made even better with al fresco dining.Recommended for:

Stopped by Hotel Wilshire on Saturday evening for a birthday celebration on The Roof - nice area with a small 3ft wading pool, a couple tables and lounge area with a fire pit. There are also plenty of heat lamps to keep warm. It was a really windy night but a great intimate little spot to enjoy a drink with friends, relax and take in the sweeping views of Los Angeles. There are restrooms but they are one person only, so quite often there was a line to use the women's. Valet is $8 with validation.

These guys cater to the connected business traveler. With a modern exterior and minimalist 60s feel, this hotel puts some soft touches on major functionality. All rooms, whether standard or suite, have an extensive media hub to let you stay connected at the top level. These hubs include usb, ethernet, and iphone ports, audio/visual outlets, HDMI plug-ins (with cable available), extra wall outlets, and of course, a flat-screen HD TV. Reserve one of the Hollywood Suites, and you also get a 6-person conference table, kitchenette, and view of the Hollywood sign. The rooms have ample natural light, and a comfortable feel. And I’m always excited to encounter a LEED-certified hotel – this one has secured LEED Silver status for its environmentally-conscious design. Not to be missed is the rooftop restaurant and bar – which is open to non-hotel guests as well – with pool, fire pit, and a clear view of the Hollywood sign.Recommended for:

First and foremost, note that Hotel Wilshire is an entirely different property than one with a very similar name—The Wilshire Hotel—that used to be in Koreatown. This is a boutique-style property that is located adjacent to the Miracle Mile and Beverly Hills. It caters primarily to business travelers—many of them regulars. Whether you decide to stay here or not, I do highly suggest visiting the rooftop restaurant and lounge. The vantage point for the 360-degree views is pretty unique, and it’s beautiful at night. The pool is up there, too.
All rooms are outfitted with a media hub and complimentary WiFi. I like the contemporary furnishings, but I do wish they were a bit bigger. You’ll definitely need a car if you stay here. There’s not much to do within walking distance, though Red Medicine restaurant is not far, and is superb if you're an adventurous eater.Recommended for:
