first visit to LA was last december but looking to go again in October time. Only wanting to do 3 nights but am finding it hard on working out where to stay.
stayed at hilton universal city last time but not planning on doing universal this time so don't want to be up there this time and was only do 2 nights so price was ok. was looking at hollywood blvd but apart from probably half a day if that i don't plan to be around this area much (plus wouldn't really like to be in with all the hustle and bustle)
Want to do some shopping prob beverly center/rodeo drive again - not been to the grove/farmers market and melrose so will go there this time and want a day at santa monica and to do the warner bros tour.
looked at HI walk of fame but looks a little out of the way - is it? Don't like the look of the orchid, looked at the standard but looks very standard, roosevelt-v.pricey, magic castle - ok but pricey(?), beverly hilton-pricey, wiltshire-pricey.
Are we being to stingy and tight with our money or are we just looking in the wrong places? I'm trying to think of places we passed/saw last time and what was where - east of beverly centre is a blur to be honest - is there anything around there?
We won't be hiring a car and will rely on public transport (again :) - will be coming in from vegas to burbank (again) too.
thanks in advance
