I needed to be in this part of LA and wisely chose the Hilton. It is glamorous as well as convenient, and I especially appreciated the hotel's shuttle service to and from my airline. I was there to attend a family event, and other members of my family also stayed here and we were able to see one ...
Very nice hotel that's close to airport. Maybe a problem for light sleepers but I sleep hard and didn't hear the planes unless I was awoke. The bed was too firm for my liking causing a backache.
Easy to find. Daily parking rate, in and out privileges. Best thing to do is to simply park your car and take the shuttle to Universal Studios them park or Citiwalk. Shuttles are 15 mins apart from 9am-9pm. Staff are courteous and professional. Parts of the hotel give away its age. Carpeting in room ...
Took my granddaughter for her 13th birthday. She wanted to see Hollywood, and we were right in the middle of it! Walk of Fame around the corner, as well as hop-on-hop-off pick-up. She loved it all! Only problem was closet door which wouldn’t shut. And the pool was closed for a private party the only ...
I’ve stayed here when it was the Radisson and the staff was ok but now the staff are great. They go beyond to make sure your happy. Our first room had a funky smell like old, closed and we called to see if we can change rooms and they did. They gave us a recently clean room. Everything was perfect. ...
Recently stayed in this hotel. Decor in and out of the hotel really got my family excited!!! Classic hollywood theme in the room. Room is clean. Only thing is the Pillow cases and bed sheets look old and need replacement. Staff are really friendly and courteous. The restaurant “Garden Room” needs a lot of improvement although. Breakfast was eatible but did not worth the kind of price. $70 bill for 3 little Asians and the meal was a complete turn off.
The staff and especially the front desk staff were very welcoming, helpful, and so nice. Beautiful people everywhere. It's a great location and close to lots of restaurants and walking distance to the Stars Walk of Fame. The room was very modern, clean, and beautiful. We had a beautiful view from our balcony. Our only complaint is that our rental car smelled of pot when valet brought it back to us, and I did read a review about another one's rental getting scratched up/dented. I was afraid to see what my car was going to look like. Good thing I purchased insurance on it because I had a big paint scratch on the tail end of the driver's side. Luckily it wasn't dented. I knew that wasn't there because I did a thorough check at the car rental place prior.
Took my granddaughter for her 13th birthday. She wanted to see Hollywood, and we were right in the middle of it! Walk of Fame around the corner, as well as hop-on-hop-off pick-up. She loved it all! Only problem was closet door which wouldn’t shut. And the pool was closed for a private party the only evening we could use it.
this hotel saved us! It was recommended by Orbitz agent and it really saved us at the last minute from not being able to have a place to stay.
From sightings of famous movie stars along Hollywood Boulevard to lounging on the upscale beaches in Malibu, the glamor of this southern California metropolis is known worldwide. Visitors flock to Los Angeles for the remarkably mild weather, inviting coastal beaches, and cultural diversity. From touring the attractions you’ve seen in the glossy magazines, to wandering around Hollywood neighborhoods, to claiming a top sunbathing spot on one of the many beaches, you're never short on things to do in this West Coast city.
L.A. is spread so far and wide that it would be impossible to define the City of Angels by only one neighborhood. There are three distinct parts of the city that draw in travelers.
When people think of Los Angeles, old-time silver screen glamor often springs to mind. “Tinseltown” is experiencing a revival in recent years, with plenty of star-struck visitors heading to the Hollywood Wax Museum on Hollywood Boulevard, along with countless movie-themed attractions. Every showbiz fan who visits Los Angeles should take a stroll up and down the Hollywood Walk of Fameand check out the TCL Chinese Theater.
As in Hollywood, the glitz of the golden age of movies lives on in the Westside. Some of the most sensational residential dwellings in all of Los Angeles are found in the Bel Air, Beverly Hills and Brentwood neighborhoods that sit graciously between Hollywood and the coast. If you've ever wanted to window shop on Rodeo Drive or drive down Sunset Boulevard, the Westside is the place to make it happen.
The city known to locals as “La-La Land” boasts more than 60 miles of beach coastline. Ask 10 people about their favorite beach, and you're sure to get 10 different answers. If you're a family visiting Los Angeles in the summertime, you may wish to visit Leo Carrillo State Park, which is about 28 miles northwest of Santa Monica on the Pacific Coast Highway. The visitor center offers educational tours, and there are plenty of caves, reefs and tide pools to explore. If you're looking for a romantic beachside interlude, you'll appreciate the relative seclusion of El Matador Beach. Approximately 10 miles northwest of the town of Malibu, the tiny pocket beach is not easy to find, but that's part of its quirky charm. Be prepared to hike a short but rugged path from the parking area to the waves. Pack a picnic to enjoy with someone special in one of El Matador's secret coves.
If you're in town on business or attending one of the trade shows, you might want to book business-class lodging at one of the Los Angeles hotels near the downtown convention center. If you are visiting with children in tow, a suite of kid-friendly rooms in Anaheim near Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm theme park may be a better choice. Staying in one of the high-class beachfront resorts is perfect for those wanting a more intimate vacation experience.
If weather is the deciding factor, there's really no bad time to visit the City of Angels. Many seasoned travelers recommend visiting southern California from September to November or from March to May. During these months, the temperature in Los Angeles rarely exceeds 70 degrees. Because of the Mediterranean climate, visiting at any time of year will provide comfortable weather for exploring this fascinating city and all it has to offer.
