It was OK
Not alot of channels on the TV, kind of a seedy neighborhood
I spent 3 weeks (business trip) in this Hotel between March and April 2005.
1-The Front desk very rude particularly a lady named Heidi, no courtesy,
politeness or even a minimum customer service formation.
2- The room service sometimes forgets your order.
3- Sometimes you get late or no wake up calls and if you call the front desk
they blame it on the automated system.
4- My colleague asked for a room with internet, he wasn't told that it is
going to be a smoking smelly room with internet, and when he wanted to
change the room, the answer is no because they are fully booked.
5- The gym is a joke, on their site it is called a fitness center and the reality it is just one small room with a maximum 3 people fitting in the same
My advice is for the price that you are paying find yourself another hotel.
Nothing special. In a busy area of Koreatown. The front desk actually wanted to charge us $20 because we were sick and wanted to stay here an hour past check out. I'm glad I got this hotel through Priceline. Not worth full price.
We loved this hotel. Very clean and centrally located. There is a metro-link station across the street and a bus stop in front of the hotel. Fast food and nice restaurants are in the immediate area. Our room was clean and well appointed. We will stay here again.
Just returned from a four-day-trip to L.A. The Radisson provides all the necessities for a vacationist: spacious rooms (twin bed), clean and well-maintained however a little bit worn out. Nice lobby, average restaurant, small outdoor pool. But you don't come to L.A. to swim in the hotel pool, do you? And then this hotel is the best in town if you want to explore L.A. without a car. Why? Right in front of the hotel is a bus stop and the express bus goes all the way to Santa Monica. Even better: just across the street is the Metro station Wilshire & Normandie, and with the Metro you can reach Hollywood, Downtown, even Pasadena. All for 3 bucks a day. You can even reach LAX airport by Metro - for $1.25 one-way. If you plan to go to L.A. and don't want to spent whole lot of money on rental cars, choose the Radisson as your place to stay. I definitely will stay there again!
Okay But Not Great
This hotel is ok. Don't plan on anything fancy. I was really glad I had paid a cheeper price for this hotel through priceline.com. It is in a decent part of town. There is a small fitness center with 2 treadmills, bike and stairstepper along with some hand weights. My room was small, had a moldy shower curtin and wallpaper coming off the walls. It is approximately 5 1/2 miles to the Mann's Chineese theater, Ripleys Believe it or not & the Kodak building. I would not suggest walking there, drive and park it will cost you a couple of dollars but the area is not very safe after dark.
Loved it....will go back there anytime
I just got back from a 5 night stay at the Radisson and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's in a good area and I felt safe there. The staff are very friendly and the room was clean and quiet. The only downfall was the toilet. It was one of those 6 litres/flush, low water use toilets and they don't work well at best. Anyway it had to be repaired a couple of times because the tank would not fill up with water. No problem, I just called down to the desk and someone was there within 5 min and fixed it right away, even at 12:30am. I was impressed. I plan on going back to LA next summer and will definitely stay there again. I also got a reduced room rate through Expedia.
I first got there I was treated with no respect I carried my own bags. When I got to the front desk again the man was rude. I had called before to conform and reserve my room non-smoking room. Guess what I got a smoking room. I went to the so called workout room I went in and to my suprise it had no wights for a decent workout I am a well fit man and was looking foward to stay in the workout room most of my stay. I was in the Unicom class so I did not have time to go see the city and wake up early. Needless to say I did not get to workout like I wanted to I worked out in my room it had more resources to get a workout. I went down to the lobby to see where I could go entertain my self, again no helpI asked for directions, and suggestions there was no help again with attitude. I went on the streets walking around asking people on the street and got a greater response from the people who did not have a job to help me. My time in the room I took advantage of the free trial of music video, and I was charged for it. My sleep was so bad there was a cover under the sheet and it would wrinkle up and give me the most unconfortable sleep. I was on the 9th floor and still heard the noise on the streets. I also found out that the other people had got a better deal with out the Unicom discount. So now I say I will stay at the Radisson Wilshire never again.
Not so good
Pretty rundown in a part of town that doesn't have a lot to offer.
Conference rooms are tatty and a bit seedy.
Nice place, good location
Nice place, not pretentious. Nice lobby. Good value and location, close to everything I wanted to see - Hollywood, Beverly Hills and downtown. Parking wasn't bad for this area, $14 a day.

Så var vi klar for siste etappe på Highway 1 – med Los Angeles som mål. Landskapet var like variert som det vi opplevde i går, men mer preget av landbruk med store åkrer. ”Vill, mystisk, uforutsigbar og jomfruelig”, slik beskrev forfatteren Henry Miller Highway 1.
Første stopp var i Guadalupe, en liten by ute på landet. Her …
... carry around with us all day (that's thinking, really). By this time we were both pooped, and ready for the drive back in LA traffic.
Of course our day was now only half over, because tonight was the night that I had ordered tickets to see a pre-season NBA game at the Staples Centre!! I was super excited (Jess took some encouraging), however between the two of us and a few maps, we managed to get off at the right exit and find parking down the ...
... devoted entirely to clothes themed around movie monsters (Elvira leggings!), comic books stores and even a shop with skulls and stuffed animals (which actually freaked me out somewhat). I did think of all you Roller Dolls when I spotted the World of Leggings... and not to imply anything, AF1, but the shop next door was called Moist Men. Cue me giggling on the street (Who decided that was a good name anyway?!). By far the oddest point of my journey was ...
... back to downtown LA to the Staples Center/Nokia Ctr and then to the Angels game in Anaheim.
By far...the WB studios was the highlight of my trip so far...and I have to say that I initially wasn't all that thrilled about doing it, but Shaun talked me into it and we are all glad we did it. Really educational as far as film and tv. The best part for me though was being able to go onto the set of ...
... nary a star in sight. We did get to go on the sound stages for Two & a Half Men, Two Broke Girls and Big Bang Theory. It's absolutely fascinating to see how it's all put together. Its not terribly far from any other stage production... Just on a larger scale.It did kinda spoil the "magic" a bit, I must admit. Jet lag was setting in but we wanted to hit some more things on ...
