me and 3 friends are going on holiday to las vegas next week and am thinking of renting a car and driving to hollywood for a day or two. any suggestions for cheapish, well located hotels or bed and breakfasts will be great!! we will have the rental car, but dont want to spend a fortune on parking, if we can walk or use public transport to the major sites.
Try Orchid Suites Hotel. It's reasonably priced and located just behind the Chinese Theatre. I could not believe how handy the location was when I went there, and the rooms are a good size.
Definitely the Orchid Suites. Right next to it is the Celebrity as well, both really good placement without spending the extra cash. The red line (metro) is right there as well, at Hollywood & Highland.
There is this site called www.thetripgeek.com that assists with travel planning and research--you should check it out. Vegas and Hollywood are two places that can get kind of overwhelming with the amount of choices, especially if you have never been there. Take care and have fun!
