Thanks again guys much appriciated

If most of your work is in Hollywood/downtown, you absolutely DO NOT want to stay near the airport. (traffic between LAX and downtown is some of the worst in the city).

LAX is far from well, everything, save for maybe Santa Monica. I doubt you'll do a lot of traveling around Culver City (unless you took a tour at Sony).

Speaking of which, taking a tour at Warner Brothers in Burbank isn't a bad idea. That is something VERY LA, and you're family will be thrilled.

But as for places to stay, Universal Studios has several hotels and is very well situated. Most likely though you should stay somewhere in hollywood.

Another option would be the Sportsmen's Lodge. It's right next to a freeway that will take you directly to hollywood or downtown in 10-30 minutes, traffic pending. It is also on Coldwater Canyon, which you can also take over the hill and into Beverly Hills.

The Lodge is a nice hotel and is in a less crazy location than hollywood. If you're family won't be happy being in middle of everything, but prefers something more calm, it provides that as well as fairly good proximity. Only downside is they have weddings and crap there all the time.

But yeah, I'd say anything near the airport is a bad idea.
