While I currently live in Los Angeles (Hollywood) I have lived and worked in New York, Paris, Monte-Carlo, San Francisco and Miami.
Los Angeles, United States
I would rent a car and drive down the coast road, U.S. 1, stopping along the way at Big Sur (possible overnight) and, further south, touring the Hearst Castle. You can do it in two days, but I prefer to take my time and plan on two overnights. The views of the coast are great and it gives you an excellent perspective on the changing topography between northern and southern California.. over 10 years ago
In the hear of West Hollywood, I'd highly recommend Baby Blues on Santa Monica Blvd just west of Fairfax Ave. Here's a link to their Web site: http://www.babyblueswh.com/ almost 11 years ago
A lot depends on what area of Los Angeles you wish to use as a base. Do you want to be close to the ocean (though it's too cool for swimming this time of year)? If so, I'd suggest exploring hotels in Santa Monica (if you are comfortable with bidding on Priceline, that might have the best price opportunities - go to biddingfortravel.com first to psych out the hotels), otherwise check prices on Kayak and other search engine consolidators). Or, perhaps you'd prefer to be in Hollywood. There are a number of "moderate" choices. about 10 years ago
