The article on http://www.foxnews.com/travel/2012/03/16/top-10-new-us-hotels-132760398/ describes picking the top 10 hotels as challenging, saying, quote,€œIt's inevitable: every year, New York races in ahead of the pack with the most new hotel openings. This year its offerings were even greater than usual, so choosing was especially difficult. After picking a pair of New York hotel openings, we spread out across the country to round out our list with a balance of tried-and-true luxury hotel groups, trendy new hotel brands and notable independents and boutiques. While quality is our number-one criterion, we're also interested in originality, whether it's in the form of amenities (skateboards) or design (a high-rise "wave").€ The Hotel Wilshire was acknowledged for its breathtaking views, rooftop bar, restaurant and pool, as well as for its chic modern rooms and green efforts- €œThere was a time when having drinks with a view meant schlepping to one of the overcrowded, overpriced hotels on the Sunset Strip. But that changed with the arrival of The Hotel Wilshire. Set on the Wilshire Corridor between Beverly Hills and downtown L.A., this LEED-certified property does its competitors one better by boasting views of the city skyline and the Hollywood Hills from its rooftop bar. This perch is also where guests will find The Roof on Wilshire, with a menu of innovative American cuisine by chef Eric Greenspan. The pool is up here too, an intimate retreat with cabanas done in a relaxed yellow-and-taupe color scheme that extends to the 74 guest rooms and multi-media suites below. As for our accommodation of choice, it's the Penthouse Suite with €" you guessed it €" amazing views.€ For more information on The Hotel Wilshire and to book a room, please visit www.hotelwilshire.com.
