We have a few days in LA at the beginning of August. Can't decide whether to stay at the Embassy Suites in Downey, Pasadena or Glendale. Pasadena is cheaper but how easy would it be to get to Hollywood etc from there? We have a rental car but we're worried about traffic as we are going during peak holiday time. It's the usual tourist stuff we will be visiting. How feasible is it to drive around and park; if we stick to public transport is that feasible from eg Pasadena?
