      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:

      Depart Cedar Lodge Yosemite - drive via Lee Vining and visit Bodie State Historic Park - is this worth visitng?
      Continue to West Walker Motel Coleville -over night stop

      Stop at Chester Lake 1 night

      Stop at Lake Tahoe 2 nights and then on to outskirts of Sacramento 2 nights - the following parks seem within possible striking distance of these destinations:

      My fiance and I will be meeting friends in San Francisco on June 22 and driving to Napa for 2 days and then to Sonoma for another 2 days. We will have a rental car but our flights out on Ssunday are 6 hours apart with the two of us departing at 8 am and our friends at 2 pm. We are trying to come up with an alternate plan to get to the airport and leave the rental car with our friends so they can enjoy the balance of the morning. Does anyone know how if there is a car service (or shuttle) to the airport and what the aproximate cost might be?

      First time to Sonoma

      by afrdrx Online Now May 1, 2011 at 12:06 PM

      Hello all,

      I posted a similar question in the Napa forum, but my boyfriend and I (in our late 20's) are visiting both Napa and Sonoma in late August. He has been to Sonoma once before for a wedding, but it will be my first time there. We are narrowing down places to stay before diving into planning things to do. We've been looking at both vacation rentals, and hotels. We will have a rental car but also like to walk or bike if we can to avoid relying solely on the car. I've read mixed reviews about many places to stay in Sonoma, and was hoping to get some input here. I'm looking for advice on areas of town to stay, as well as specific lodging suggestions. We've looked into:

      -A few places near Boyes Hot Springs, off Sonoma Hwy

      -A couple places near East Napa St and 8th St

      -El Dorado Hotel (From what I've read...Pros: great location; Cons: lots of noise and tight on space)

      -Bungalows 313 (seems like a nice option but again, I've read some great reviews, and some terrible...has anyone stayed here that can provide some insight?)

      -Les Petites Maisons

      We prefer to be in a relatively active area of town, and are big on food & wine (hence, the trip to wine country!) Any tips on nice (and not exceedingly expensive) areas/places to stay (and things to do/places to check out, since that would be my follow-up question) would be welcome and much appreciated. Thanks!

We'll be taking clients and want a spot where we can stay in an idyllic setting, have a meeting room for getting some work done, and have outdoor activities to break up our days.

      Any suggestions? Everything I'm finding is too "quaint country inn" or "honeymooner's paradise"...My clients are from L.A. so I want a pretty upscale experience.

      My wife and I will be in Sonoma County for two nights in July as part of a 10 day California trip. Can anyone recommend some wineries to visit, or restaurants? We will be staying in Petaluma but we will have a car and will probably spend most of one day driving throughout Sononma and Napa counties. We are not wine connoiseurs by any stretch of the imagination, but we have taken a few winery tours and enjoyed them (although we live in Maryland, where at last count there were a total of about 15 wineries in the state). We are looking for wineries that have a regular weekday tour and have moderatley priced wines. Also any restaurant recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any info provided.
