Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.

  • Look for parking around staples I found parking for ten bucks at a recent show. Surprisingly the McDonald's at staples don't sell big macs. Limited menu they call it... But not their signature burger. Interesting. 12.75 for a margarita with hardly any alcohol in it is pretty lame. I mean it tastes good... But there's hardly any alcohol in it. Still this is a better venue than a lot of the other ones I've been to.
  • This is always one of my favorite arena venues to visit. The place doesn't have a bad seat. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The sound system is generally good in concerts and sports games. Fun place to go. Plus there is a ton of stuff to do across the street at LA Live.
  • Parking is too expensive, but there are cheaper private lots you can park at in the area. The venue was nice, the staff was very helpful and kind. They even had open seats, closer to the show, and let us sit in them. Overall, great experience.
  • You can get nose bleed seats at a decent price and still have a good time while being way up there. I wish I could get a decent beer for less than $10.50 and a hot dog for less than $8. Service is decent and we took the train down from Hollywood which made transportation easy. I recommend catching a game here if you have a chance.
  • GKG! I love catching a Kings game here. The sight lines are fantastic and there are no bad seats in the House. Food and drinks are little expensive but what would you expect from a place like this in downtown LA. The sound system and multimedia experience are incredibly well balance while still impressing. Each time I come for a game The Experience gets better and better
