Sleeping / Hotels in the LA area

Picture by big_foot via Freeimages.com
LA is on top of my travel list (with so many other places haha). It's a place I've seen so many times on blogs / vlogs / pictures / tv / movies, but it's also a place I wouldn't know what to expect from. There are so many people that love LA, but also so many people that hate it. I can't wait to explore this city for myself. When searching for hotels I looked in LA, Santa Monica and Hollywood. When you go to LA you need a car anyway, so you might as well explore the whole area =)

Georgian Hotel **** - www.georgianhotel.com 

This 'little' blue hotel is a combination of vintage glamour and a modern accommodation. It's located in Santa Monica, right across from the beautiful Santa Monica Beach. The Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade are close by as well. They offer valet parking only, but it's a bit expensive. They do offer free WiFi. It has got great reviews on Tripadvisor and Expedia.

Shore Hotel *** - www.shorehotel.com

This hotel is located in Santa Monica, close to the Georgian Hotel. So it's close to the beach, the pier and Third Street Promenade. The hotel looks really beautiful and modern. The ocean view rooms give you an amazing view of the ocean! They offer free WiFi, so you can upload your beach pictures immediately. Just like the Georgian, this hotel gets great reviews on Tripadvisor.

London West Hollywood ***** - www.thelondonwesthollywood.com

Just like the name says this hotel is located in West Hollywood. "Hollywood glamour meets modern sexy sophistication." It's very expensive, so this hotel is only for you if you want to spend a lot of money on the bed where you are going to sleep in. But if you do, you get the most beautiful hotel (and bed). The rooms are very big, they offer free WiFi and you get a beautiful view from the rooftop.

O Hotel *** - www.ohotelgroup.com

This hotel is located in Downtown LA. O Hotel is way less expensive than the previous three hotels. So when you need to be in the Downtown area or if you don't mind driving a little farther, this is a great hotel. It's boutique hotel, looks very modern and is close to the subway. The rooms are a bit small and not all of them have a view. The hotel is located in a quiet neighbourhood. They offer lunch and dinner, but no breakfast or free WiFi.

Hollywood Hotel *** - hollywoodhotel.net

I wonder where this hotel is located? I think in Hollywood, why yes! This one is close to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and other touristy attractions. It's close to the subway, if you don't want to take your car. There's free WiFi and they offer free breakfast as well. Some people say that the hotel is in a kind of an run down area. Some say it's safe, others say better not go out at night. So you have to decide for yourself how you feel about that.

  1. I definitely have a love-hate relationship with LA. I don't think I'd ever live there (Burbank is the only area I'd consider) but it's a nice place to go out and see a show or something. That hotel London West Hollywood sounds fabulous. Unfortunately, I never really get to stay in a hotel when I visit because I have a lot of relatives there so I usually stay with them. It's weird but I prefer to visit LA as a tourist rather than as someone who has been there many, many times. This is random but when I went to Hollywood last time, I ate at Cafe Audrey (a cafe dedicated to Ms Hepburn). I would love to visit there again. :)
