Where to stay in LA (accomodation) ?

Hi all, 

I would like to know which part is the best in Los Angeles to book an accommodation? What would be the most popular area to stay in? Hotel suggestions would be great as well. 

Los Angeles (California)

I'd recommend either Venice Beach or the Ocean Park neighborhood of Santa Monica (stay away from downtown SM).

It honestly depends on where you'll be spending most of your time. L.A. is so spread out, you don't want to do something more budget on the east side when you'll be hanging out on the west side by the beach most of the time.

If you're staying on the west side, I'd recommend Santa Monica. It has the most hotel options on the west side. Some good hotels: The Georgian HotelShore HotelThe Huntley Hotel.

West Hollywood is one of the more convenient areas, as it's easy to access Hollywood, DTLA, Beverly Hills, and the Beach. Couple of my favorites in the area include Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles At Beverly Hills and Mondrian Hotel- Hollywood.

What I recommend the most is Mid City, although there aren't as many hotel options. Favorite hotel is Farmer's Daughter Hotel.

Hi Sarah,

There are a few locations that are good, central areas:

Mid City is safe, close to museums and not a far drive from Hollywood, downtown, etc.

Century City, CA - a little cheaper than staying in the heart of Beverly Hills, but just as centrally located

Beverly Hills - if you are willing to splurge there are great hotels

Hollywood - this is obviously right by all the touristy things (walk of fame, hollywood sign)

-West Hollywood - a little more west, great safe area. You can stay on Sunset Blvd as well, there are some very nice hotels.

-Melrose Ave/Fairfax are good areas that have lots of things in walking distance. You will still need to drive to most touristy spots, but there are cute cafes and restaurants that you can walk to from these places. 

Check out previous questions on this topic, Trippy members have given specific hotel recommendations :)

Enjoy your trip!
