I am staying in San Diego for one week and I wanted to take a mid week trip to Los Angeles on a Wednesday and stay one night. I need to be checked in my hotel and available to board a tour bus at 11:40. What time should I leave the resort that I am staying at in Escondido to be there on time to check in, park car, and board the tour bus without being stressed out driving? Someone on the LA forum suggested I post here. They stated they did not know which route would be better on a weekday 15 to 10 or 78 to 5. My hotel in LA is in West Hollywood at the Le Montrose. I would appreciate any input from those who know the traffic.
