Can someone please recommend a hotel in LA? Going next week and not booked anything! Doing usual touristy things and will have a car. Thanks!

The Farmer's Daughter is great - we stayed there last month. It is right by the fabulous Grove shopping centre and the LA farmers market - and walking distance to loads of museums which is great as driving in LA is horrendous so it was nice to have a day off driving. I wish I was there right now!

No availability!

Would staying in Long Beach be too far from the touristy things, like Disney and Hollywood?

Look at a map of the LA area. LA is a huge sprawl of a place and made up of many different suburbs.

You need to have the first night's accommodation booked before you travel as that is a condition of the ESTA (electronic travel authorisation).

I would look at the Anaheim area if you want to visit Disney. Long Beach is about an hour's drive (minimum) from Anaheim.

Long beach is a million miles from everywhere. What's your itinerary and budget? I live here and can find done suggestions if you give me more details...

Maybe try looking on a website like or Expedia as you can search by availability, budget etc.

Also, I second what Attila said - Disney is miles away from Hollywood and the awful traffic makes it even further. Loads of hotels near Disneyland, you'd be better staying nearby for that bit.

We tried to drive from Longbeach to Hollywood last week at about mid-day ( July 3 ) but turned back as the traffic was a nightmare.

Try Newport Beach or the amazing Huntington Beach.
