We have 4 days in Los Angeles arriving 29 April and leaving 4 May. We would like to stay in a hotel that is close to shops and restaurants, with a budget about $100/night. I was thinking of a hotel in downtown, but not sure if it is good idea.
I was planning to take guided tours for 2 days, and catch public transport to some sightseeing areas on the other two days. Advices on hotels and travel arrangements will be appreciated.
