Universal studios to Hollywood inn

by Alleigha

Hello,
I was wondering if it is safe to catch a train from Universal Studios to Holiday Inn Hollywood at night. How far is my hotel from the train station? I heard my hotel is in a pretty bad area. Would it be easier (and safer) to get a cab? Any suggestions would be great.
Thanks

The Holiday Inn Hollywood is less than one block from the Metro station. It is on a busy, well-lighted street with thousands of tourists and much local traffic. You will be perfectly safe, but remember that trains stop running at 1 a.m.

Your hotel is absolutely not in a bad area. It is on Highland Ave., the same street as the Hollywood Bowl, am amphitheater that fills up with prosperous locals during summer nights.

It will be difficult to catch a taxi, as anywhere in Los Angeles at night.

I wouldn't call it less than a block, I would call it more like one very LONG block, and if I were alone I would not walk it after dark due to so much traffic whizzing by etc.

I would recommend to take the cab. In LA you have to call cab companies to arrange for them to pick you up. The cab company I use is Yellow cab. YOu can get the phone number from a diretory in the hotel. Since Universal studios is a big attraction ask the hotel if they offer a shuttle.
Cabs are on the expensive side. I'm not sure what the distance is exactly from your hotel to the holiday inn but the trip will probably cost you n-e-where from $20-$40. As far as safety is concerned I would personally not prefer to take the train at night. But I live here and own a car so can't say that I have ever travelled at that time of night on the train.

Travel Tips for Los Angeles

Broadway Theatre District

by Stasigrace

Los Angeles' own "Broadway" street is now a mishmash of mostly Latino-owned clothing shops, music stores, and places that sell, well, junk.

However, in its heyday, Broadway was a vibrant movie and live theatre district. The theatres still stand, though most are not used for their original purpose.

Still, it is a wonderful trip down the street (look UP), viewing all the lovely facades. There are 12 major theatres along the road from 3rd - 9th street.

One theatre that does still host live plays, music, and more, is the Orpheum, between 8th & 9th. It has a fantastic lighted sign that is so cool to see at night. Check it out--something interesting may be playing while you're visiting.

Also, the Los Angeles Conservancy (www.laconservancy.org) hosts a very popular program called "Last Remaining Seats", for which they open a few of the movie palaces for screenings of old movies, just a few nights per year. It's worth looking into.

Check out my travelogue featuring some of the beautiful buildings of broadway, and another of downtown.

You should see all the sun...

by Martin_B

You should see all the sun there and the live. And if you have chance, you can see a lot of beautiful car like Porsche, Lamborghini... I don't have a best memory there because i'm just stayed there 3 days, but only to feel the sun in your skin it's so cool..

La Brea Tar Pits

by lmkluque

Visit La Brea Tar Pits and learn about the early years of Los Angeles. Discovering these ancient tar pits in the center of a city such as Los Angeles is quite surprising.

The Page Museum at the La Brea Tarpits offers a variety of educational expreriences as well as a visual example how the tarpits--which actually are asphalt pits--trapped birds animals and insects from the Ice Age, more than 10,000 to 40,000 years ago. Mammoths, Saber tooth tigers, even dinosaurs have been found in the excavations that began in 1908 and are continuing today.

The Freeway Chickens

by gilescorey

One day, in the late 1970's, a poultry truck rolled over on the 101 Freeway, heading downtown, and dozens of chickens ran free. Legend has it, that these plucky little critters survived and have set up home and family in the overgrown center median. LA Times writer Steve Harvey, regularly reports Freeway Chicken "sightings" in his column. Some insist they've spotted them off the 10 Freeway; that the birds are migrating East. Commuters have been known to toss muffins and bagels into the median, treating the traffic-trapped chickens to a healthy meal. I've yet to spot one, but I always keep one eye on the brush as I crawl South on the 101.
