What's the best hotel (or top 3) to stay at while in LA for vacation and for looking around?

Take into account area, cost, luxury accommodations. We will be staying for 6 days, 5 nights.

Thanks!

Depends on your budget!!!

If it's unlimited, I would suggest the Four seasons

Or if you wanna be by hte beach, the Fairmont

Will you have a car? It makes a big difference. Also, LA is huge. You should map out the things you want to see/do and try to pick something where you won't spend your entire trip in your car. There are luxury hotels in many areas - downtown, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Santa Monica, Westwood, etc

Yeah we will rent a car.

As for budget - we can do up to $500 or so a night, but it has to be good. I've heard good things about the Wilshire, Four Seasons... but I'm not sure about the locations since i'm not familiar with them.

Wife also pointed out Sofitel... so I have to look into that also - I think it's significantly cheaper.

I'd prefer beachfront, and stay at Loews or Shutters on the Beach. Speaking only for myself.

The only downside of staying on the beach is that it is not very central - you'll be looking at a bit of a drive to get to DTLA or Hollywood. Of course on the other hand you will be right next to the beach, which is the biggest draw for many visiting LA.

It depends what area you want to visit the most. Will you have a car?

I am always a huge fan of the Millenium Biltmore. Right in the heart of historic downtown with lots of cool areas within walking distance.

It isn't near the beach though! Or Hollywood! So it really depends. There are also really nice places in Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Santa Monica, etc.
