The Hotel Wilshire – an asana friendly place to stay in LA

on May 10, 2013

I stayed two nights – from 2nd May – at The Hotel Wilshire, at 6317 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. The Wilshire Hotel is one of the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants which are currently located in 23 cities across the United States.

One of the many positives about staying at a Kimpton Hotel is that every room has a yoga mat in the wardrobe 🙂 Also, guests may request the loan of complimentary props, eg straps and blocks. And, there is a TV channel for those wishing to follow a guided practice for Pilates, yoga, meditation or core strengthening.

For joggers/runners, a map is provided with suggested jogging/walking routes (3, 5 and 7 mile routes). For those interested in cycling, the Hotel has bicycles that guests may borrow.

The Hotel is within an easy walk from: LACMA – LA County Museum of Art; and the Petersen Automotive Museum. A bus route into the Chinese Theatre/Walk of Fame area is nearby to the Hotel, or a taxi to the same area costs US$17-20.

The Hotel Wilshire also has a fantastic roof top restaurant, with a lovely pool, views toward the HOLLYWOOD sign, and across the city. They serve a delicious Green Dog (kale based) smoothie 🙂

Many thanks to Hotel Wilshire for their fabulous services, and friendly, helpful staff, and for lending me a yoga mat 🙂


PS I am looking forward to shortly spending a five night stay at The Argonaut, San Francisco, which is another Kimpton Hotel.
