Verified Reviews of The Wilshire Grand Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"A nice place, but with a couple issues."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I was very impressed with the room when I walked in. The bed looked so inviting, and the room had a warm feel. I decided to order room service for dinner. I ordered the chicken parm. It came very quickly, which made me happy. The food turned out to be horrible! It tasted like it had chemicals in it or something. I couldn't eat it. I tried just a bite of the cheese, and that's when I almost threw up! I was completely disappointed. But I was right about the bed. I slept like a baby. When I took a shower the next day, I wasn't happy. The fixtures were very loose and hard to use. What is it about hotel bathrooms and their showers being so cheap? Going there to sleep is fine, but steer clear of the room service! Yikes!
