We fly into LA from the Pacific Isles for a 3 base Californian stay (LA/S.Diego/S.Fransisco) before returning home to the UK.
Arrive midday Sunday early April for 3nts (although I havent ruled out the departure by train to S Diego late Tuesday so only 2nts).
So far TOH wants to do the Stars home tours and I am keen on seeing the Getty Museum-closed Mondays (What extremes of culture! or maybe not!!).
Is there an obvious area of LA that we should search for a hotel that would be the best base for getting to both and fits in with our short stay arrival LAX- Union Station departure? I am just getting my head around the boundaries for Central LA/Beverly Hills/West Hollywood/Santa Monica as choices.
If not my preference would be for an area that has a local/neighbourhood feel.
I am using multiple sources including the other threads to the right about the areas of LA, travel books too but any obvious area that would occur to the experts would be time saving and much appreciated.
Thanks ahead of replies
