I was wondering if the downtown Los Angeles area is safe for a visitor to stay in?
Also interested on thoughts about staying in downtown vs hollywood or west hollywood considering I can get a nice hotel around 3.5 to 4 star in downtown for the same money I can get a 1.5 or 2 star in the other areas.
Is it really worth staying in Hollywood area even in a crappy hotel? I mean I am not coming to LA purely for a hotel stay of course.
I want to do all the usual tourist things - expect Disneyland
Any thoughts are appreciated
