Planning a 12 day trip in August spending a week in LA and 6 days in San Diego.
I am horrified at the hotel rates in Santa Monica, what with resort fees,and taxes,plus air from the East coast sadly makes Santa Monica somewhat unaffordable for many.
I would like to stay near the beach, but anything that looks decent seems to be 4/5 star at 400 a night plus.Staying for 7 nights put this over the top for us
I have looked at some 3 star, a few blocks away from the beach,and am not interested in paying their rates which are around 300 plus for accommodation that seems to be less quality and not worth that kind of money.,
Alternate choice, much to my surprise, is the availability of less expensive 4 and 5 star hotels in the Beverly Hills area. I am told we can Uber down to Santa Monica and it is about a 15 minute ride. I hope that is accurate.
Given the above, can any one suggest hotels both in Santa Monica and the Beverly Hills area that
would work for my wife and I. I realize that this is high season.
Does anyone know what the Shang Rii La and the Viceroy are like?
I know of the Courtyard in Santa Monica but is there a decent Courtyard
close to the Beverly Hills area ?
Similar situation in San Diego - any suggestions in the downtown area?
The Manchester Grand Hyatt is offering amazing rates-under 200 a night. Now you
ask how come? It looks spectacular and they tell me it is a short walk to downtown.
It is also near the water which I like.
