Hotels in LA ... I know...how long is a piece of string type question...

Jump to last reply

I am from Australia and have NO insights into LA apart from what i can glean from studying maps, trip advisor, Fodors etc.

So, my question is.... we are driving from Las Vegas to LA this coming January. It will be a longish, tedious drive from what i can gather. We will have a rental car, and have 4 days in 'greater LA' from which to explore the touristy things (yet to look into what these may be) before we drive out to Anaheim (of course-! we are travelling with 2 active sons) where we will give up our rental car and get about as the locals do. So, can anyone suggest a hotel (or even a region of town) that is in the $100 - $200 price bracket, on the Las Vegas side?? of LA to allow us to get there easier after our drive, but that allows us to branch out and explore the city easily enough. We are happy to take public transport or drive, though the idea of driving in LA is a hairy one! Do we position ourselves right in the middle of everything (which is where?) or stay on the outskirts of town and manouvre from there?

Any local advice is heartily welcomed and will be listened to!

thank you very much.

Kym
