This historic Art Deco building is a beautiful piece of LA history. Formerly a hotel in the early 1900's, Park Wilshire has been restored in a modern art deco style, complete with beautiful courtyard and fountain and the original marble floor in the lobby. This compact hotel-style apartment has a fantastic view of MacArthur Lake and the downtown skyline and is in a great location to explore downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and everything LA has to offer.
This compact studio apartment has cute modern furnishings, a brand new spring mattress with memory foam topper, HBO, On Demand and Wifi. The bathroom has a large tub great for soaking and a rain shower head. The kitchen is fully remodeled with black granite counters and beautiful glass art deco backsplash. It has everything you need to cook (sans microwave), enjoy your morning coffee or tea (french press), a Brita water filter, and even comes equipped with a Vitamix! There is also a take a book/leave a book library :)
The building has a brand new gym with kettle bells, medicine balls, free weights and of course the requisite treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike etc. It's open 24 hours, well air conditioned and newly remodeled.
The apartment is one or two subway stop from downtown- close to the LA Convention Center, the Staples Center, USC and the Ahmanson Theater. If you're not familiar with downtown LA, it's a transitional neighborhood, which means you will see a good amount of homeless people. The apartment is just 5 quick subway stops from Hollywood- close to the Hollywood Bowl, the Pantages theatre and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Easy access to the 10 freeway puts you at the beach in just 20-30 minutes. We're right next to Koreatown too so if you like Korean BBQ, or the Korean Spas (my favorite) you're just 2 blocks from Wi Spa, a huge Koreatown favorite! Walk over and get a scrub, some Bibimbap or take a nap on the heated marble nap surface. We're also just 10 minutes from the trendy Silverlake and Echo Park neighborhoods. Take a paddle boat out on the lake or visit some cute boutique stores for some unique shopping.
The studio is just 2 blocks from the Westlake/MacArthur Park metro stop (LA's subway) on the Red Line. Although, I prefer to walk a little farther, a little over half a mile, to the Vermont/Wilshire stop, also on the red line, because it's a nicer walk. You have to walk past a small tent city to get the the Westlake/MacArthur Park station and, walking alone as a woman, it's not the safest vibe. This area is also swarming with Lyft and Uber. A car is always 2-3 minutes away. Parking is available at an overnight garage a half block from the studio for $8/night (which is very cheap for downtown!) The parking garages address is provided for you in the welcome packet I email out when you book.Get the full listing »
