Planning trip to Burbank/LA/Hollywood/Beverly Hills specifically to see Ellen show(Hopefully). Is flying to Burbank the way to go? We're renting a car. Where's a great Hotel to stay? Burbank or LA moderately priced. Staying for 7 days so is a trip to San Diego do-able or should we cut short visit long beach, huntingdon beach?
Good idea to stay in Hollywood as it is really the only place you can cover a lot of sights on foot. Here is a overview of the hotels there. You need to stay close to Hollywood Blvd. You will see the Chinese Theatre on the map, and you should be close to it. Pick one of the better hotels.
Here is a website for tickets to shows with a live audience.
Also take a look at my Hollywood/Los Angeles/Beverly Hills page for much information and plenty of websites to browse through. Enjoy....d:o)
...further, Burbank is a smaller airport and easier to navigate than LA Airport, but it is not really much closer.
Here are airport shuttle services.
>>>...so is a trip to San Diego do-able or should we cut short visit....
This would depend upon what all you want to do and see in L.A. but yes, I would say it is do-able.
San Diego is a nice place to visit and I think, easier to navigate, but there is a lot in Los Angeles you might want to do that could eat up your time.
thanks for info vt's I checked out hotels on site still not getting a idea of where we should stay. Ellen show in Burbank, if we stay in Hollywood or LA could we get to studio easily? We will have a car. (convertible i hope) We like simple luxury. We want to do the VIP tour at studio, see walk of fame, chinese theater, pic of hollywood sign, rodeo drive, the alley (got some great info from vt) Anyone know about "Haunted Hollywood" tour? Wanna see santa monica pier, considering drive to san diego with stops along way. think we should stay for couple days and fly out from there?
First, -m if you consider hotels in Hollywood, all the things you mentioned are within easy reach. Look for the Chinese Theatre name on the map, and stay close to it. Don't pick the cheapest but middle range hotel.
Burbank is easily reached by freeway. Google map Burbank, and you can see where it from Hollywood. Studio is right off the freeway (134).
Here is a Haunted Hollywood tour by Starline which is explained on my Hollywood page. See my above response. They are just a few feet from the Chinese Theatre.
Your site was very helpful thanks for info! Will check out tour
