My partner and I will be flying into LAX from Sydney which is about a 13 hr trip arriving into LAX around 9am on a Saturday morning. We were thinking about booking a LAX hotel for our arrival to get our bearings,rest etc before we ventured to the more touristy areas. Would you recommend doing this or is it worthwhile to just travel directly to our destination which is proberbly going to be near Universal Studios. Whats the traffic like this time of the morning? Any feedback would be much appreciated.
