The Hotel Wilshire in Los Angeles Will Open in July
When all those new hotels opened in NYC last year, the Los Angeles hotel scene started to feel a little lifeless but like a Real Housewife just back from the doctor's office, things are looking up!
The Mr. C Hotel in Los Angeles is very near opening (right now it's in a preview stage) and we've just got word from a tipsta' that The Hotel Wilshire will open in July.
We wrote about this hotel back in July after Curbed reported that an old medical building would be transformed into a boutique hotel. Now the hotel's got a name (an uninspired one at that) and a website.
The ground-up transformation of The Hotel Wilshire, using sustainable resources and green building materials to achieve a LEED Certified designation, is now a fresh and contemporary, eco-friendly boutique hotel. Included in this total makeover is an impressive Penthouse Suite and versatile, multi-media suites with panoramic views of the Hollywood Hills.
There weren't any room pics on the website but we did notice a PDF fact sheet that supplied this room shot above. Hmmm...we're liking the soft lighting and that touch of yellow. We just hope room actually look like this when the hotel opens.
The website also promises a rooftop pool with private cabanas, restaurant and bar, a business center with laptop stations, guestrooms with iPod docks, media ports, luxe bedding and full-length mirrors along with our fave, free WiFi (so nice the hotel actually listed it twice!)
This hotel's location in the Mid-Wilshire area is good but not great. It's about six long blocks from the Beverly Center and it's far south of the hot spots in Hollywood but it is very close to LACMA.
The property is also part of Greystone Hotels which runs the small, Eurochic Elan Hotel a few blocks north. Reservations are expected to open soon, so we'll let you know then what it will cost to stay here.
