Hi, going to LA in the end of March, this is a 1st time in California for our teenage girls. We'll have a week, want to have a bit of everything: city feeling, nature, attractions. We are from Long Island. We travel a lot and I am usually good in finding places to stay. Spent 3 hours yesterday reading reviews on hotels and I am confused. We want to spend 4 nights in LA in a safe but vibrant neighborhood, in a safe, clean, not expensive hotel. We won't spend a lot of time in hotel, it should be in a quite (as much as possible), safe place, very close (to be able to walk) to some evening life with cafe, restaurants, small shops, people walking (not just tourists). We will have a car.
So far I was looking in Hollywood, WeHo and Beverly Hills.
