Los Angeles welcomes its visitors with nice weather, Hollywood, posh boutiques and restaurants and some of the world’s best hotels. At the same time, Los Angeles offers plenty of activities on a budget, from transportation and lodging, to night clubs and shopping.
The following is a list of the best-rated budget-friendly hotels in Los Angeles that are sure to give you the Hollywood experience without breaking the bank.
Hollywood Downtowner Inn
Located near the landmarks such as the Madame Tussauds Hollywood and the Pantages Theatre, Hollywood Downtowner Inn is a great option for all those looking for urban adventures right at their fingertips.
At $79 per night, a free breakfast and close to the subway station, this hotel on the Hollywood Boulevard lets you experience Los Angeles right from the heart of it all at a reasonable price.
The Wilshire Hotel
Many of the guests of the Wilshire Hotel are in Los Angeles on business, but the convenient location of this hotel makes it very easy to see the best of Southern California, including Downtown L.A., Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Universal Studios. With rooms starting at $103 per night, the guests of the Wilshire Hotel are a walking distance from shops, restaurants and businesses.
Starting at $149 per night, this (almost) century old boutique hotel with a mix of Moroccan and Mexican charm is worth every penny. Huge chandeliers, woven rugs and hand-painted murals make up for the lack of amenities and high-end bars.
Situated across the street from the Staples Center and Nokia Theatre, this downtown gem offers a warm and cozy welcome to those looking for a slice of history and a beautiful venue to make memories and experience a different side of Los Angeles.
Visiting Los Angeles doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg if you do your research beforehand and book a hotel in advance. With so many places to visit and things to see in Southern California, your money is better spent elsewhere.
