Accommodations in Los Angeles

The first thing you need to decide when looking for hotels in Los Angeles is which neighbourhood you'd like to stay in. LA is huge and if you rely on public transportation your trip will be slow and gruelling. A public bus takes at least 1h 30mins to go from Santa Monica to downtown. Stick to hotels in the area that you most want to discover.
