At Kimpton Hotel Wilshire, family travelers enjoy Los Angeles in style with a lovely boutique hotel designed to create the perfect vacation getaway.


In addition to the stylish surroundings, luxurious accommodations and the exceptional service Kimpton hotels are known for, the hotel features great amenities, offering something for everyone and making it the perfect place for the whole family to experience.


The little ones love exploring the neighborhood on wheels with complimentary scooters offered by the hotel. Complete with helmets by Nutcase and staff recommendations on fun, kid-friendly places to explore nearby, this amenity sets Kimpton Hotel Wilshire apart from the crowd. The Micro Kickboard Mini Deluxe scooters are perfect for little ones aged 2–5, while the Maxi Deluxe Kick scooters are ideal for kids 5–12.


Mom and dad love the hosted happy hour every evening, 5–6 p.m., and daily-use bikes available in the lobby let guests get some exercise as a family while exploring the city. The whole family will appreciate the rooftop pool, where they can soak up the sun and enjoy the incredible view of the surrounding city. Family-friendly guest suites are available, featuring two queen-sized beds and enough TVs and living space to accommodate the whole family.


These amenities are all part of a whole-family approach that includes, of course, the family pet. Furbabies are welcome at Kimpton’s Wilshire location for no extra charge, and guests also have access to Kimpton’s signature Wag! Premium, a pet program linking guests with services like dog walkers, boarding, pet sitting and veterinarians.


Kimpton Hotel Wilshire is located in the perfect place for families visiting LA, with many of the city’s best family destinations just minutes away. With Museum Row down the street, which includes great-for-kids hot spots like the La Brea Tar Pits, along with L.A. must-sees like Hollywood Boulevard, the Sunset Strip and nearby Beverly Hills, there’s something for everyone in the city. While shopping on Rodeo Drive may not be for everyone, the Grove, one of L.A.’s best shopping destinations, is also nearby, not to mention an endless list of world-class dining options to suit everyone’s tastes.
