Staying in Los Angeles
Plenty of room to move
Los Angeles is more a loose collection of small cities clustered around a rapidly gentrifying Downtown than it is a single, easily-defined urban city. Names like Burbank, Long Beach and West Hollywood are as synonymous with Los Angeles as the city's nickname, "the City of Angels," and so large is the entire Los Angeles Metropolitan Area that more than 18 million people call this expansive region home.
With so many places of interest spread far and wide, there's naturally no shortage of Los Angeles accommodation available in this buzzing west coast hub. Downtown is the city's throbbing financial heartland and the area is serviced by several upscale hotels, including The Ritz-Carlton, the Hilton Checkers Los Angeles and the opulent Los Angeles Athletics Club.
Set your sights on a theme park holiday
Home to the Hollywood studios which first made Los Angeles the movie capital of the world, these days the city is equally renowned for its many popular theme parks. Universal Studios Hollywood is one of the oldest and remains a working studio lot, though its the diverse range of themed rides and rollercoasters which attracts most visitors to its Universal City home – with the Sheraton Universal Hotel a popular place to stay.
Disneyland Park is southern California's most popular theme park, located on the outskirts of the city in neighbouring Anaheim. A beloved American institution opened by Walt Disney himself in 1955, Disneyland is comprised of eight themed lands which attract millions of tourists each year. There are dozens of Disneyland Resort Hotels for visitors looking to stay within close proximity to all the action.
Hanging out in Hollywood
The Hollywood sign has loomed over the Los Angeles landscape since 1923. Once a real estate advertisement, it soon became a symbol of Hollywood's nascent movie industry. Today, the Hollywood sign is one of the city's main tourist attractions and there are plenty of places to stay near the famed Hollywood Boulevard running through the heart of the district below.
The Roosevelt Hotel is a local Hollywood landmark and hosted the first Academy Awards in 1929. Today, the Roosevelt remains one of Hollywood's most popular hotels, not least thanks to its trendy Teddy's nightclub – a favourite celebrity haunt. The Sunset Tower Hotel is another of Hollywood's most luxurious hotels, located in the heart of the famous Sunset Boulevard strip.
