Just coming to the last 4 days of our trip of the west. The abundance of info is quite mind boggling on where to stay in los angeles. Naturally i have read a lot of the forums, google searches and books but seem to meet with contrasting views. Would be looking to visit Warner brothers studios, Griffith observatory, the Getty center, rodeo drive, Hollywood walk Of fame, Venice beach and Santa monica. Have a car and realise traffic can be an issue. Considering splitting the 4 nights to make travel easier. Quiet and safe accommodation obviously preferable. Maximum looking to spend is $160 per night, though obviously would like to keep costs down where possible.
Any expert suggestions much appreciated
