Verified Reviews of The Wilshire Grand Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Surprisingly Disappointing"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The staff was brusque at check in. We asked for pillows and a blanket and were told there were none available. No phone in room to connect to front desk. Furniture poorly placed in room (if you sat in the chair you could not see the television. Best person on staff was the delightful woman who was in charge of breakast.

"Very disappointing. Expected four star quality. Experienced 2.5 stars."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Nothing met our expectations: Front desk staff was brusque upon check in. We asked for extra pillows and a blanket and nothing happened. Room wasn't clean, e.g., stuff left under the bed. Deficient amenities, e.g., no plastic bag for dirty clothes. Shower was very challenging to regulate. WiFi needed to be logged into every time a device was turned on. TV was hard to navigate; could not access anything but regular channels. Requested noon checkout and was told 11:30 (!). All in all, quite disappointing.

"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!

          Testimonials icon
          "Thank you so much for an amazing website. I had a very short time frame to manage a bus tour of 45. I needed hotels and banquets in less than 10 days. The destination was West Palm Beach - high season - and effectively sold-out. Within two hours I had responses back from three available hotels within my price range. I was able to sign a contract within 24 hours and manage the rest of the program. I continue to be impressed with your concept and will be a frequent user of your site." L.B. - Grand Rapids, MI
