Car is not an option, sadly. I wish I could rent one, but I have some license issues over here in Quebec.

Couldn't find much hotels in Los Feliz, I'm probably going to look for hotels directly in Hollywood and the likes. Looks like a nice place though, I might go take a stroll over there if I have the time.

The Metro Red Line runs between Downtown LA and North Hollywood and goes right through Hollywood. Here is the link to the map/timetables...

maybe you can use this as a tool to find hotels near a stop?
I got a few hotels around Hollywood in the 60-90 range. I'm not worried about the price, I have a few options for that. Just wanted to get some info on the areas and possibly good cheap hotels some people on this board may know of.

Thanks for the map, that will definitely be useful!

EDIT: Thanks a lot for the extra info Buddy. I completely forgot about TripAdviser, I'll take a look. I planned to look for coupons as well, that always can sweeten the deal a bit.

Thanks for the help all!
