Flying into LA for three nights on Dec. 28th before going to Anaheim. Going to see Hamilton and Universal. Choosing a hotel..... I like Sportsman's Lodge for the price and the free shuttle to Universal. Does the hotel itself get a thumbs up or down from anyone here? The thread on this hotel is really old. Should we expect to be able to swim in the pool in December? Or will it be too cold? Open to other hotel suggestions. Also: Thinking two shorter days at Universal rather than one long one, using single rider but not Front of Line pass.... they are outrageous in price. Thoughts? Kids are old enough to do single rider on most rides. Thanks! P.
