2 day stopover in LA in October

Have a weekend to myself in LA on a work trip in October.

Have travelled extensively overseas, but first trip to USA.

Looking for nice place to stay, and some ideas of what to do and see.

Budget $300-$400 per night for accommodation.

Not interested in theme parks (family would kill me), prefer good restaurants, nice bars and sights.

With that budget, you can afford to stay in a nice hotel in a nice area. Generally, without a better idea of what places you'll be visiting, I'd say to start in West Hollywood (The London, Mondrian, Chateau Marmont, Grafton on Sunset, Sunset Tower, Andaz, Sunset Marquis are a few options there) or Beverly Grove (Sofitel, SLS, Elan). Both areas tend to be quite central for most tourist itineraries, and both are full of great restaurants and bars - the latter area a bit less on pure bars, while West Hollywood is one of the bigger nightlife areas in the city, lots of restaurants, bars and smaller night life venues.

What are your interests? What do you want to see in LA? Will you have a car?
