A Couple Of Questions About Klax

Tue Jul 08, 2003 4:35 am

My friend is setting off on Saturday for a three week tour of the U.S. starting off in L.A. . Basically I have two questions to ask,

1. How far away is LAX from Downtown LA?
2. Are there any recommendable motels situated near the airport?

Thanks
Twins,twins, everywhere.... but where are the three holers?

LAX is 20 miles away from downtown L.A. ... nothing much for tourists in downtown L.A. - Better areas are Santa Monica (less than 10 miles away) and Westwood, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills... within 15 miles of LAX.

A cheap hotel is a mile away from LAX, called the Hacienda, favorite hotel for pilots, 24 hours restaurant available - Crew rate for rooms was $39.oo some 2 or 3 years ago... Little motels in Venice area are cheap, 5 miles from LAX...

L.A. used to be my home town...  Big grin

Thanks for the help guys. He hasn't booked any accomodation for the trip as he plans to have flexibility, so this info was very useful.
