We are a couple driving down the west coast in mid-August for 22 days in (total including flights from Europe)
My question is what is the best place to stay in LA at this time?
I am finding it hard to decide between St. Monica, (such as Shutters on the beach) Beverley Hills(maybe Beverly hills hotel) or West Hollywood (W HOLLYWOOD or Mondrain).
If it is Beverly Hills / West Hollywood which is the most central place to stay in?
Is it better to stay on the coast and then venture up to Beverly Hills / Hollywood etc or the other way around?
We want to do a bit of everything beach, the sights, universal studios...
The itinerary is as follows:
Napa (2 nights)
San Fran (3 nights)
Monterey (1 or 2 nights)
Santa Barbara (2 nights)
LA (3/4 nights)
San Diego (2 nights)
and then flying to Vegas.
Thank you very much for your help!
