I stayed at the Wilshire Crest Hotel in Beverly Hills for 1 night to attend a concert at the Saban Theatre. This hotel was very nice, quaint, quiet and friendly staff. The room was spacious and clean. Very nice, upscale neighborhood, close to restaurants and walking distance to the Saban Theatre. Would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous atmosphere and location! I recommend it for the old school accomodation in the heart of Los Angeles. The neighborhood is pleasant for walking and admiring the beautiful architecture of the nearby homes. A welcome relief from today's high-end almost too-perfect hotels and resorts.

OK. So it's not the Ritz, but give me this over the Ritz any day. I can honestly say that this was one of the most enjoyable and hassle-free stays at a hotel for quite a while. I can't find a fault in any aspect of my stay here. The location was perfect for getting to almost anywhere downtown, museums,... More

The hotel staff was extremely accommodating. I stayed there for 3 days on business and needed a quiet space to record an interview. They gave us an empty room, free of charge, to record in even after we checked out. Their flexibility was greatly appreciated.

There is a good deal to like about the Wilshire Crest. It's in a good location and a pleasant neighbourhood. The owner/managers are very nice. The rooms are large and reasonably priced for LA. The bed was good and the linens were good quality other than for some pretty lumpy pillows. The bathroom was pretty recently updated, but still showing... More

When I tried making a reservation online, there were no rooms available. I called the hotel and they were able to accommodate me, something I'm very grateful for. So if you aren't able to book online, call them up and hopefully they'll be able to help you. The hotel is located in a very residential area. If you enjoy walking,... More

What an awful experience: The "non-smoking" room reeked of smoke residue. The exhaust fan in the bathroom was broken. There are insufficient electrical outlets in the rooms. Wi-Fi was slow and unreliable. "Continental breakfast" was clearly supplied on the cheap by the local Costco and Ralph's. And there was no bread at all. We asked for some, and were pointed... More

We stayed Saturday night just 1 night, but I would stay again, clean and comfortable. Nothing flashy, but for the price DEFINITELY worth it! You can pay more nearby, but if all you want is a clean room, comfortable bed, give it ia try.
