Unbeatable location for the price!

The Wilshire Grand is located right in the heart of the business district. Very convenient to shopping(we went to the Garment District) Very close to the LA Dodger Stadium and walking distance to The Staples Center. The staff was very helpful and pleasant the room was very clean. I booked this hotel through the internet at a very economical price and I was very satisfied. Next time I will consider a bigger room as we were a little crowded with two kids.

If you go to the Garment District, be ready to haggle over the price before you pay. You can find anything you are looking for there. Be sure to check every item you are buying closely, since there is a no return policy. Schedule a full day to give yourself time to comparison shop. Very exhausting but fun.

My review of Wilshire Grand Los Angeles

Good Clean hotel. Just across the street from the Metro station. I took the metro to the Dodger Game one night and the next to hollywood to the pantages theatre to see Wicked. It's also about 6 blocks from Staple Center. Yes, I would recommend this hotel.

Very good value.

Thw Wilshire Grand Hotel-Los Angeles was very nice for the area. We were on business,so the location was one of our main concerns. The only drawback was that the room was on the small side but was ample, clean,and comfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. I feel very safe there, and there are several restaurants in walking distance. I will try to stay there again for my next business trip.

My review of Wilshire Grand Hotel

The Wilshire Grand was very nice and the room was very comfortable. Our overall experience at the Wilshire Grand was very positive. The hotel is a non-smoking property, which we appreciated. While our room was clean and fresh, the hallways leading to our room had a musty smell like a dirty ashtray.

Great retreat after moving son into USC dorms!

We stayed at this hotel based upon its centralized downtown location and proximity to the University of Southern California (USC) campus as we were moving our son into the USC dorms for the first time. We loved the enormous 400 sq. ft. size of the junior suite with 2 comfortable double beds, flat screen TV, sofa seating area and wonderfully sized double bathrooms. The rooms were immaculate and the staff were incredibly kind, helpful and courteous. Hotel parking was also very convenient and safe. While the hotel will be closed at year-end 2011 for 5 years to undergo a billion dollar renovation, we plan to return to this hotel to stay when we visit our son during the fourth quarter of 2011. The hotel is conveniently located close to shopping (Macy's), restaurants, and the subway. Overall, this was a perfect retreat after a tiring day of moving boxes and other belongings into a college dormitory! We look forward to future stays!
