HOW

Transporation

 

We are in the fun Sawtelle neighborhood of West Los Angeles, just inland (east) of Santa Monica, but still west of the 405.

 

If you are flying…

We recommend flying into LAX. It is just a few miles down 405 from us. With no traffic (which means either 3AM on a Thursday or any time after the zombie apocalypse), it’s only about a 15 min drive to our home. :)

 

If you are driving…

See map on details page.

Accommodation

 

There are many options around our home that range from “somewhat affordable” to “I wouldn’t pay that much for my mortgage.” Here’s a couple of options we recommend. If you are looking for something in a different price range, lower or higher, let us know what you are considering so we can check it out for you. Happy to go case the hotel and make sure you’re getting what you expect!

 

Affordable: Travelodge Santa Monica

Just about a mile from our house, lots of nice restaurants walkable from the hotel.

Swanky: Le Meridien Delfina

Address: 530 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405

Phone: (310) 399-9344

 

GETTING AROUND

LA is a car-based city. You can do pretty well locally with a cab to your hotel and buses or car services (Lyft or Uber) around the West Side but realistically, if you plan on running around and sight-seeing, you’ll need a rental car.

  • Rental cars -

    • There are no on-site car rentals at LAX. You’ll catch a shuttle from outside of baggage claim that will take you to the rental counter.

  • Ride share/cab

    • You can take a Lyft, Uber, or a cab. Cabs pick up curbside near baggage claim. If you call a Lyft or Uber, they have specific pick-up points that are marked. Ask a baggage handler and they’ll help you out.

  • Once here -

    • You can get around the westside (Santa Monica/Venice/West LA) pretty easily with a ride service but the cost can add up.

    • Buses are not a bad option if you don’t mind waiting.

    • If you rented a car, parking is good at the hotels and we have ample guest parking at our condo.
