Where is the best location and hotel to stay in LA

by mjaocm

Hello, I am heading to LA next year (March) with my husband for 7 nights and I cannot decide where to stay... I dont want to pay no more than $220-40 a night for accomm, but want to be central enough that we can walk to a restaurant and eat out or go shopping, catch a bus or whatever. I have been looking at the ELan hotel near the Beverly centre.. but not sure if this is too far. The other options I have been told to check out are the Crown plaza beverly hills or the best western on sunset.

Can anyoe help or advise where we should stay for starters and secondly suggest any nice, clean and not over the top hotels.

Thank you

While you are waiting for the real LA experts, I'll suggest that you might check out the Santa Monica area near the 3rd Street Promenade. I've heard that it a pretty interesting place to be near and should fill your requirements.

Well, it really depends on what your Los Angeles interests are. If you are a Disneyland person, then two nights in Anaheim would need to be arranged. If you are into the Hollywood/Beverly Hills scene, then staying in that area is the way to go.

A big difference is if you are going to have a car. It is possible to use the public transport system, but it is not very practical and it is time consuming.

Staying in Hollywood, allows a lot of attractions within walking distance. The subway can easily take you to either Downtown, or Universal City (Studios).

Dont' worry about driving in L.A., - yes a lot of people are threatened by it having heard about our endless traffic. L.A. is the only major city in the U.S., that is built around the automobile and is therefore very much spread out.

Good idea to stay in Hollywood, although parking is a little tight, as there are many things to see and do there that can be enjoyed on foot. There are plenty of hotels on or around Hollywood Blvd, but do not cosider any less than 3 or even 4 star hotel there. Here is my favorite old hotel, the legendary Hollywood Roosevelt, the home of the original Ocsars. Great club there called the Cinegrill. Also a great place for celebrity sightings, especially at the pool.

Or do what I think is a great idea. Stay at the Magic Castle Hotel, which will get you into the iconic Magic Castle, a legendary private club, that just has to be seen, if at all possible. Check it out.

Take a look at my Los Angeles/Hollywood/Beverly Hills page, chock full of information on the areas with plenty of websites to absorb as well:

A fixed cab fare to Downtown/Airport or vice versa is $43.00. Should be similar to Hollywood. Ask the driver(s) first for a price. Or you can take a shuttle. Here are a couple of shuttle websites:

There is more of course, but this ought to get you both started......

Hope this is of some service. Don't hesitate to ask specifics.......d:o)

Travel Tips for Los Angeles

Where to Stay

by DueSer

See my companion piece about Orange County on my Anaheim page. This will help you (hopefully!) decide if you want to make somewhere in LA or Orange County be your base while exploring SoCal.

Like OC, LA County can be divided into different areas. The main difference, besides the sales tax, which I discuss more fully on the Anaheim page (but basically, it's higher in LA County), is that LA County is much larger than Orange County. This just means more cities you have to get to know in order to decide where to stay and where to visit.

The South Bay is a region in the southwest corner of the county. Here, Palos Verdes Peninsula sticks out into the Pacific. The cities around the peninsula are Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills Estates, San Pedro, and Long Beach. For visiting both LA and Orange County attractions, if you want to just have one base for the entire trip and have that base be centrally located, your best bet would be one of the beach cities. The 405 fwy skims the eastern edge of Redondo & Manhattan Beaches and runs right through the middle of Long Beach. From the 405 you can get just about anywhere in either county with one or even no fwy changes. There's not much to see in these cities except the beaches - try Redondo early in the morning if you like dolphins - but, after a long day of sightseeing, a walk on the beach would be a great way to relax and all these cities can provide you with that. Long Beach also has a great place to kayak in Alamitos Bay and there's also the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills Estates meld seamlessly into each other. They are the 2 towns that make up the majority of the peninsula. This area is known for curvy roads, fantastic scenery, exclusive homes, and Wayfarer's Chapel (a glass chapel on the cliffs overlooking the ocean). It's a great place to visit but not really an option to stay. The roads are difficult and confusing and it's out of the way if you want to go anywhere else.

San Pedro is also on the peninsula. This is a small community where most of the cruise ships dock. There's a pretty lighthouse and the Korean Friendship Bell. This area has some hotels and motels but it can be a rough neighborhood and, again, its out of the way location doesn't make it ideal for a convenient homebase.

The Eastern area of the county really doesn't have much in terms of tourist attractions and making your base here would mean a long drive no matter where you wanted to go - beach, downtown LA or some parts of Orange County.

The northern beach cities would be Hermosa Beach, Santa Monica, Malibu. SM & Malibu are world known so there's much to see here but the prices are going to be higher. If you're not going to spend much time in Orange County (so you want to stay closer to the LA sights) but want a cheaper place than can be found in SM or Malibu, try Hermosa Beach. It's similar to Manhattan and Redondo but a little closer to LA.

The northeastern area includes Pasadena and South Pasadena. This is a lovely part of the county with large, beautiful homes, great shopping and restaurants, and terrific museums. It would also be a great place to set up your base. Just remember - a drive from here to the beach will take you a VERY long time. On the other hand, to get to Orange County you can hop on the 110 or 10 fwy to the 5 and you'll be in OC quickly.

Central areas - the central part of Los Angeles has a lot to see - the downtown architectural and historic sites, Dodger Stadium, Chinatown, Union Station, Olvera Street - but most of this area is not some place you'd want to find a hotel. If you want to be closer to the action and a little cheaper than Santa Monica, for example, and you don't need to stay right by the beach, consider Pasadena or Century City or the West L.A/Hollywood areas

Blue skies and cool beaches!

by Plookie

Check out the Pacific ocean southern california style! There are beaches from San Diego to San Francisco, but the warmer waters are located south of Malibu. Meeting people of all colors, LA is an ethnic melting pot. And everyone alway's finds themselves staring out at the pacific ocean.

spend 2 days at Disneyland and 2 days at Knots Bery Farms. I miss being able to live in the un-crouded out scirts of San Diego and just being able to jump in the car and spend a day at Disneyland or Knots Bery Farm.

Whimiscal Shops!

Nick Metropolis is a whimisical outdoor junkyard has become a kind of tourist spot a bit off the beaten path. I have often passed Nick's place on the bus. Everytime I do, this nutty place seems to me to come out of nowhere. This is a place one really needs to see to believe.

N Metropolis is visible along MTA route 16, 37, 212, 312, near the La Brea/Beverly or La Brea/1st intersection

There are so many bizarre furniture pieces and knick-knacks. Here is a list of some items:
actual movie theater seats
old Beatles paraphenalia
vintage movie posters
Simspon plush
shag rugs
