      It was OK


      Not alot of channels on the TV, kind of a seedy neighborhood

      Terrible Hotel


      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.

      Just Okay


      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.

      Great hotel


      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.

      Quiet tip


      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 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.

      ... Laura quickly learnt that I seem to have pay some crucial walking skills as the amount of time I slipped, tripped or stumbled was ridiculous! Down on the boulevard again we decided to get some food in the form of buffalo wings. They were ok... I wasn't overly impressed. In actual fact I will I'll after... However I think that's more to so with a bit of sun stroke than anything is eaten. We popped to ...

      "Every blessing ignored becomes a curse". If good energy is ignored, it is influenced to become
      bad energy. It means that having a blessing and ignoring it causes more of a problem than not having than not having the curse in the first place. For example, I was given a ...

      ... Terror, Soaring over California. Found out that you can get more Fastpasses for the same ride (too late for Cars - sold out early in day) so got 2 for Grizzly Peak and girls 2 for Rollercoaster. We hardly had to queue at all - 30 mins for Toy Story and 20mins for tower of Terror (too late in day for fastpass).

      We had a break around 3pm and went back to the hotel for an hour for a swim. We saw the queues for Disneyland for ...
