Hotel Wilshire

We had very little real estate on the roof; Mitsubishi [Electric] engineering allowed us to combine condensers, saving space. With a traditional split system, we would have had a huge farm on the rooftop, which would have meant no room for the pool.

Los Angeles’ Hotel Wilshire is a 74-room boutique hotel created from a 1950s six-story medical office building. The renovation focused on creating a luxurious atmosphere in an eco-friendly facility. VRF from Mitsubishi Electric helped the project team create room for a rooftop pool, offer guests whisper-quiet cooling and heating, and go for LEED® Silver certification. Download the PDF below to read more. You’ll hear from the owner, architects, engineer and hotel general manager, and see photos of the hotel and equipment.
