I am having a difficult time deciding where to stay over the winter break. Initially, I thought we would stay in Beverly Hills, however I now have the impression that it is dead after the stores close. So now I am thinking that West Hollywood would be better for shopping, eating, and walking around. We have ruled out Santa Monica; we are not beach people and I think it is too far west. Just to give you an idea, when in New York, we stay on Times Square, when in London, we stay in the West End. When in Hong Kong, we stay in Kowloon on the harbor. Should we stay in Beverly Hills or West Hollywood?
