Hello!
I live in the Hollywood area and frequent all those places so I hope this helps you .

Since most of what you want to do is IN Hollywood (universal studios is literally a 3 min drive from Hollywood BLVD / Sunset) I would tell you to stay at some place close by. The Renaissance Hotel is very nice, clean and is on Hollywood and Highland (the same corner as the chinese theater and the kodak theater). All the Best western hotels in that area are clean and comfortable as well. The Renn hotel is just in the heart of everything and I think its more fun lol

From Hollywood you would have about an hour drive to Disneyland.

Contact me if you want to.. I'm in all those places all the time

The Renaissance hotel is a good choice.
