Los Angeles is known for its massive sprawl, Hollywood, and as the home of the movie industry. It’s also known as Southern California’s largest city, as well as one of the largest cities in the world. Confusingly, many of Los Angeles’ sprawling exurbs are frequently lumped in with Los Angeles, so don’t be surprised if your hotel appears to be in a different city.

Los Angeles is massive, spanning an entire valley and possessing thousands of miles of roadways. You can find any hotel that your heart could imagine in Los Angeles, provided that you’re willing to travel far enough and pay enough.
This includes major international chain hotels, local hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, camping sites, rentable houseboats, and more. No matter what kind of hotel experience you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find it somewhere in LA. The exact location that you book your hotel within LA can make a big difference in terms of the price, however.
LA is massive, so the location that you book your hotel matters. What do you plan on doing while in LA? If you’re in LA just to tour, the downtown area near Mission Junction has a wide variety of upscale hotels that are central to the skyscraper-laden core of LA. Keep in mind that LA’s skyscrapers are not the definitional features of the city, so you may not get the most authentic LA experience by booking in downtown.
The catch with booking here is that there are very few tourist attractions in downtown LA, but it also isn’t too far from any single point in the rest of the city. There are also a few deals to be found when you book a hotel in downtown LA, and the exact street doesn’t matter so there are plenty of options to choose from.
You’ll need a car to get around in Los Angeles, so be ready to rent one.
Nearly all transportation in LA is by car, and ridesharing gets expensive very quickly, so the best solution is to rent. The public transit system in LA is very weak, and barely covers the typical tourist destinations like Hollywood. Aside from the Caltrain system and the occasional bus, there isn’t any public transportation to speak of, and taxis are generally on-call but extremely expensive.
Expect traffic to be extremely heavy, and expect to take at least thirty to forty minutes to reach any neighborhood outside of downtown during the day. The good news is that if you leave in the morning and return to the downtown in the area in the evening, you’ll be facing much less traffic because there’s little residential traffic heading toward downtown during that time.
What an amazing place to see! Everyone dreams of coming to LA. I was blessed to be born here! So diverse and unforgettable! Always something to do :)
I stayed in a cute historical inn in Pasadena. There are lots of other communities like it with great walkability and transit (I did not rent a car). Best of all there are a million things to do from mountain to ocean, all within 1.5/2 hours or less.
LA is a wonderful place. The climate is diverse and the people who inhabit it. There's always something to do and discover here!
