Thank you for visiting our website and taking a moment to familiarize yourself with The Wilshire Grand hotel and services. Our management team has more than fifty years combined experience in the hospitality industry. We know that every guest has their choice in where they’d like to stay when traveling to our area and for that reason we continue to strive to offer the best unique, locally owned true boutique experience that’s unparalleled in our area.
Independent boutique hotels have trended very well the past few years and we are not going away. The many big box brands offering the same cookie cutter hotel in every city are just not appreciated as much by guests nor are they as appealing as they used to be. So much so, that those big box lodging companies are creating “faux-tique” brands to stay competitive and relevant. But make no mistake, very few are actually locally owned and locally operated. If you don’t know – Ask! So if you support buying local like we do, support the real independents that are re-writing the book on hotel service and guest loyalty. My team and partners are all local and we own and operate our business from right here in West Orange.
We recycle and are at the Gold Level with TripAdvisor. We are one of the few “TripAdvisor Hall of Fame” Hotels, as we’ve been rated number #1 in West Orange by our wonderful guests for five years straight since 2011. We use tree-free tissue, toilet paper and paper towels designed to minimally impact our environment. And we’ve retrofitted more than 2500 CFL’s and incandescent bulbs with LED’s, including our parking lot lights, cutting our kilowatt usage annually by more than 24% in the past two years. Our unique amenity line is bottled with a corn based product that will compost in less than eighteen months. Plastic bottles used by most hotel brands today will be here when we are long gone. Our team does not support that at all.
Please know that our goal is to ensure every guest departs feeling they’ve received more value than they expected. To that point we insist on offering our complimentary services, such as our high rated Buffet Breakfast, Complimentary WiFi at speeds of 50Mbps+, and free local shuttle service within a five-mile range. We also have tickets available for the Turtleback Zoo, American Yoga Studio, and the local JCC, featuring state of the art health club facilities. Our catering is the finest around and we feature more than 30,000 square feet of beautiful banquet and meeting space. We’ll tailor to any whim or desire you may have about your event, whether it’s a meeting for ten clients or a wedding for 350. When you stay don’t forget to sign up for Stash Hotel Rewards, one of the only “no black out” hotel programs in hotel reward existence.
If you feel we can do more to make your stay even better, I truly want to know!
Thank you for considering us your home away from home!
