Where best to stay in LAI am heading to LA in april after Coachella and wanting to know where is best to stay that I can enjoy the nightlife and also head to the beaches of a day and do the generic tourist sites of Chinese Theater etc. I have got a rental car and would like to stay in a nice enough area somewhere i can drive to the beaches of a day and get a cab home from clubs of a night safely and fairly easy?
There is a group of four single guys in mid 20's so you can imagine our itinery although we arent the stereotypical lets get drunk all day and night, we want to see the LA sights and enjoy some relaxing days sightseeing and at the beach.
Any suggestions would be great! I have been told downtown because its fairly cheap but heard its abit dodgy after dark, west hollywood and areas where the Roosevelt are have also been mentioned.
Budget is anything from cheapest (but clean and in good safe location) to upto $200 a night

2But most the hip hotels are not near the beach. The Standard, Chamberlain, W etc, are near W Hollywood and or downtown LA..
For all things cool in LA, check out the Timeout.

4You guys will save a boatload of cash by staying at a chain motel (Super8, Comfort Inn, Days Inn) around
Hollywood and driving the 15 miles to the beach in Santa Monica. If you want a nice place with a swimming pool
just a block above Hollywood Blvd. check out the Magic Castle Hotel, which gives you access to the Magic Castle
Magician's Club performances at night. From here, you can walk to Grauman's Theater, the Hollywood Walk of Fame
and the Kodak Theater ( the Academy Awards' venue) Just a couple miles west from here on Sunset Blvd. is the
famed Sunset Strip with nightclubs and West Hollywood's nightlife just beyond. By driving from Hollywood Blvd.
northward on Crescent Heights Blvd. you can see the view of all of LA up in the Hollywood Hills. Have Fun!

5Thanks for the ideas guys, I have looked at Santa Monica but it seems abit of a way out to the main bars and clubs we would liek to visit. I dont mind driving to the beach and sights but driving to a club is not on the agenda.
#2 I have looked at the chamberlain, there are some poor reviews for it but it looks very good and in a great location? have you had experiences there? The hotels you mention are along the lines we are thinking, location, comfort and price wise.
Thanks again, keep the ideas coming on clubs or whatever we must see/do whilst there.
