Sheraton Hotel is close to City Walk - Univesral.

As such, there are lots of restaurants there such as

Bucca di Pepp, Hard Rock Cafe, Wolfgang Puck Cafe...


There are movie theaters here too.

Also its close to the Metro in LA


If you take the station to Hollywood, you will be close

to the attractions there such as the Walk of the Stars,

Grauman Chinese Movie Theater, Hollywood Entertainment Museum, and a small Hollywood Wax Museum. There is also a shopping area there.

If you want a gorgeous view of the LA/Hollywood area,

plan on having drinks at Yamashiro in the Hollywood Hills.

Its easiest to do this with a car. The view is breathtaking from here.


If you have a car you might want to go to Venice Beach/Marina Del Rey area for the day. Venice Beach is a great place to walk/skate and people watch as well as enjoy the ocean.

Several small cafes in this area which is fun to go to.

Marina Del Rey has lots of shopping.
