Hi Bees!! So my Bridesmaids are all flying in to Socal for my Bachelorette Party in July- Originally we were going to do the JW in Marriot- however it is just too far of a drive from LAX for just a weekend. Anybody do their party at The Wilshire or Roosevelt? Looking for suggestions for LA area pary ideas or info on any rental houses for a weekend! Thanks 🙂

Can’t speak for an event at The Wilshire or Roosevelt, but I can say that public transportation in LA is lacking (and I’m being generous by saying even that). You can catch a taxi, but everything is so spread out that you’ll likely pay well over $40 one way if it’s not nearby.
If you stay at The Roosevelt, you’ll be right down the street from Hollywood & Highland, which has shopping/entertainment at hand.
And not certain about this, but I just searched and it looks like the Wilshire Grand in LA will be closed effective 12/31/2011:http://www.wilshiregrand.com/HotelClosure.pdf

Thanks for the info on the wilshire- that helps a lot!! I agree transportation sucks in LA- however it is a lot closer to the airport than palm springs, and PS is so expensive to fly into- really sucks!
