We are taking a AAA trip to the Rose Parade and they've booked us rooms at the Wilshire Grand in Downtown LA. The reviews on TripAdvisor aren't too favorable, so I'm a little nervous. (Of course, it didn't help that I first thought we were staying at the Beverly Wilshire! That's a truly luxury hotel!) Also, we'll need to turn in early on NYE, but we'd like to eat a nice, early dinner near the hotel. Any suggestions?
