      Hostels to stay in near Union Station LA

      Los Angeles Apr 5, 2014 at 7:26 AM

      Hello all!

      I am flying into LAX next Sunday at 9pm and I am looking for a place to stay until I get my AMTRAX train from Union Station up to San Francisco on Tuesday morning.

      I am planning to go straight from the airport to a hostel / hotel near Union station where I can sleep and recover from Jet lag. I want to stay by Union Station the following Monday day and night so I can be near by to collect my train on the tuesday morning.

      Does anybody recommend the best / cheapest way to get from LAX to Union Station on a Sunday night?

      Does anybody have any recommendations for places to stay near Union Station?

      I am thinking a cheap and friendly youth hostel?

      Also, what type of area is Union Station in?
      Are there any interesting places in walking distance?
      Coffee shops or parks where I can just chill for the afternoon?

      I really look forward to hearing from you!
      Many thanks,

      Milly, London

      Our plan, Tioga Pass being open in mid June is as follows:

      Continue to West Walker Motel Coleville -over night stop

    • Questions about a custom tour in Hollwood and LA

      by iampino Online Now Mar 9, 2014 at 4:02 PM

      Hello all,

      My wife and I are staying in Hollwood, CA for two nights and have one full day planned for sightseeing (it will be a Saturday) and doing the touristy things. We will be driving our rental car and having it at our hotel. Our questions are as follows:

      How much time is stuck in traffic driving from place to place? We are planning out a schedule (not necessarily tight, but we have timelines of where we want to go, etc.) and trying to add time for driving.

      Is it better to do a personalized tour so that we don't need to drive and park our car?

      If you've done a custom tour, who do you recommend?

      Is there one part of the city busier at certain times on a Saturday morning/afternoon/evening then others? If we know West Hollywood is slammed in the morning, then we would start on the other side of town.

      Thanks for your valuable knowledge and incite!

      Hi Everyone,

      I would like your advice . I will stay for a week in West Hollywood - Near Santa Monica Boulevard, 5 mins walk to Troubadour... Is it an unsafe area to stay on my own over there?
      Is it easy to take bus from there to get around?

      I'm not planning to get a car as I'm not comfortable with it.

      Then, I have to find another accommodation for the last 4 days - preference to be: nearer to Union street Hilton Hotel to get the San Fran bus...
      Have you got any place to recommend without being too far from the Kodak Theater (as I would like to see the academy awards event)?

      Many thanks for your help.

    • Safe to stay in Hollywood/West Hollywood area?

      by vivdraward Online Now Nov 15, 2011 at 11:23 AM

      We are four women in our 40s and early 50s who plan a trip to Los Angeles in the spring. We are hoping to secure Ellen Degeneres tickets to one of her tapings which is in Burbank. We would also like to see the usual....Walk of Fame, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Universal Studio, etc. We are actually looking at renting either a condo or house in that area, rather than hotel rooms. It's a less expensive alternative but we have not yet booked it. What I need to know is - is this area, Hollywood/West Hollywood safe? I've heard that very little is walkable and that you either need a car or perhaps a car service to get you from point A to B. Is this correct? Is so, does anyone know of a reliable and affordable car service?

      In doing my research and reading about Hollywood, it sounds like it may not be the best place to stay but I'm not sure where alternatively would be best for us considering some of the activities we'd like to do.

      BTW - we will only be there from Sunday, leaving first thing Thursday.

      Any help or suggestions are most welcome.

    • Best photo opportunity for Hollywood sign

      by bjones277 Online Now Jan 29, 2011 at 6:10 AM

      I have been researching the best places to get a photo of the Hollywood sign, not just a zoom job from a distance but a location where I can take a pic of myself and wife in front of the sign so the sign stands out pretty clear in the picture.

      I have been told about the Griffith Observatory, 3000 and 3116 Canyon Lake Drive, Hollywood and Highland Center, 3384 Deronda Dr. Los Angeles.

      Because I won't be driving in Hollywood, would asking a taxi driver to take us to any of these places be the best thing to do? or would the taxi drivers know the perfect spots? I don't really know.
