Due to a rather unfortunate turn of events, I really need a roommate(s) if anyone is interested... I'm at the Wilshire Grand as well and will be there from the 22nd to the 29th, so 7 nights total. It is only about half a mile from the con center too, the second or third closest hotel, so there is no need to worry about transportation or car rental...
Here is the Hotel's website: Wilshire Grand LA.
There is a virtual tour on there, these are some really nice looking rooms. The rooms and lobby have high speed internet. Here is a list of all the amenities:
Complimentary high speed internet access in all guest rooms
30 TV channels including HBO, ESPN and the Cartoon Network
Remote Control TV with Lodge Net and Internet Access
Iron and Board
Custom climate control
Double panel glass windows
Free access to Gold's Gym (accross the street)

So that would be $714 if you stay the same nights I'm there. If you can only stay for 5 of the nights you only need to pay for those 5, which would be $536 I need someone who will be there at least 4 nights though, if not I'm going to have to find somewhere else to stay. It is expensive but it is damn nice looking hotel. If anyone else is looking for a roommate/place to stay... pick me!
