    hey...
    we stayed at the radisson for 5 nights last sept....nice hotel...around a 3.5 star standard....the shuttle comes every half hour from the hotel...they usually have a hot yoga course going, so expect 100 yoga students sweating and dripping all over the place....pool is ok, nothing spectacular, but rooms are clean and comfy...and the food /bar downstairs makes an awesome burger and pizza.....it doesnt have a room safe.

    for the $63 a night I got, it was money well spent.....:wave2:

    That's good to know. Thanks for the heads-up. I might even do some investigating into how much a taxi would cost to the Santa Monica/Venice Beach area. We stayed in Santa Monica last time we were in LA and found the area quite interesting. Unless people think Manhatten Beach is better??? I've never been to Manhatten Beach.

    $63! Now that is the kind of price I was hoping to pay. How long ago was that, and where did you find that deal?

    I was expecting most hotels to be around the $100 mark, so when I went onto a whole bunch of hotel sites and saw that the average was more like $200 during my stay, I was gutted.

    Thanks Karen, we will only be there from around 11pm until 6am so we probably won't see the pool or any food. Just hope the shuttle gets us there on time and we get a good wake up call!

    We stayed at the Magic Castle in LA, I remember it was cheap, I cant remember how much though, it was great there, right next to the main hollywood stretch, with a pool, wifi, free breakfast, and free snacks and drinks as well through the day. I loved it!

    Hi,

    I have twice stayed at the Westin Los Angeles Airport for a good price. I just checked on kayak.com for a random date and got $117 including tax. They offer a shuttle and while not as nice as a Westin in Australia, it is still nice. For the money it is very good value.

    I was coming in to recommend priceline or hotwire. We booked the Hilton through one of these and got a great rate. When the specific hotel isn't that important to me, just the location and star rating then I'll use those sites every time. :thumbsup2

    We had no problem with the shuttle, we got off at I think 4 or 5 different places and found that we didn't have too long to wait for a shuttle to pick us up when we were done. Two of the drivers were lovely - one of them recommended where we should stop and have a look and told us a heap of other great information, and the other one laughed at us because we ran the whole way across a large betabuy car park to get on, and the next stop was where we ran from :lmao: ... I guess you had to be there, but it was pretty funny...
