1. Re: Best place t stay in Los Amgeles

Welcome to the Forums Alijack4,

Your questions have thier own specific City forums to post in where you can ask specific questions about where you may want to stay, an itinerary ect. Be sure to include a budget per night for a Hotel and what kind of accomodation you are looking for as well as dates of travel and things you may want to do in the specific areas so they can better help you.

Heres the LA forum as well as the Anaheim Forum where Disneyland is located .



There is no central place to stay to visit both LA and Anaheim, Anaheim is located about a 45 min drive South of the LA area (in good traffic) so if you are planning on going to both places, usually its suggested to split your stay and stay park of the time in the LA area and part in the Anaheim area.

To get you started for the Anaheim part of your visit. You can stay directly across the street from the Disneyland Main Entrance and easily walk to Disneyland in a few minutes. Most of those would be standard motels with a few Hotels in a little farther walking distance.

Here is a Map of Hotels in the Disneyland area so you can see where things are located. The Disneyland Main Entrance is off of Harbor blvd near where it says "East Shuttle Area" on the Map.

If it were me I would break it up. Stay 2-3 nights in Anaheim and then, instead of staying in the downtown area, I would stay in Santa Monica.

Santa Monica is great because it's on a great beach plus you are not too far from driving into Hollywood, downtown LA, bike riding along Venice Beach, and Beverly Hills, just to mention a few destinations.

There is good shopping in SM, which your girls might like, too!

Agree with Patches, do not stay in downtown LA. Beverly Hilton is good, Santa Monica is nice, but I think it's a schlep to get to Hollywood, etc... Staying around Beverly Hills is best if you can afford it.

Our family loves to stay in Santa Monica, it is nice and near the beach and great shopping. There are quite often deals available on nice hotels. We also stayed in a Best Western just outside of Beverley Hills once that we liked.

Expect to drive a lot in LA no matter where you stay. In Anahiem, you can find less expensive accommodation, but the Disney hotels are a great experience if you can handle the cost.
