The Century Wilshire – a delight in every way!

This turned out to be a real gem. A hotel from the silver screen era – small 3 story white building with brass fittings, filled with antiques, grand piano in the lobby and a wonderful central courtyard of tables and flowers where you could sit, chat, eat the continental breakfast, and relax. Wonderful indeed – an oasis surrounded by high-rise Beverley Hills condos. Many guests had clearly made this a cherished stop for many years.

We enjoyed every moment of our stay there.

Sadly, we learned on checking out that the hotel had been sold (they eventually couldn’t turn down the mega $$) and that we were privileged to stay there the second last week before it closed.

Truly the passing of bit of elegant history and it was wonderful to have enjoyed it while it was still there.
