Im a musician and Im travellin' out there next Spring. I was wondering where are NICE yet affordable accomodations that I could stay there a week. I want something close to Hollywood area- you know the tourist part , and not off any whacky highways, lol

Also coming from Richmond, Virginia,- what can I expect from the people? Friendly?

Will they have any place I can get sweet tea?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I don't think you will find sweet tea like it is served in the South, but ice tea is very popular\served everywhere. Lots of herbal teas. Thai tea comes fairly close to Southern sweet tea w/ milk.

Staying in Hollywood\West Hollywood is expensive but lots of fun [esp on Sunset Strip]. The Roosevelt on Hollywood blvd is where beautiful young starlets hang out around the pool. There are evening pool parties that get very hot There are also more reasonable hotels thru out Hollywood though some are purely for prostitution or drugs so beware [esp east of La Brea or north of Hollywood Blvd]. Lots of musicians in LA [you might want to seek music web pages].

Mmm...I used to see sweet tea a lot in ghetto asian owned donut shops.

If you cant afford staying in a hotel West Hollywood, I'd suggest looking in Burbank. Its a little bit cheaper, safe and really close to Hollywood.

Oh, ill look into Burbank. How far is that from West Hollywood?
What is the average price of a room there?

Are there any bed and breakfast type places?

Its pretty close to the Hollywood area. Like 15 minutes, and you just have to use one freeway..

I think you can find places that are fairly cheap like 80-100 or something.
Try one of those travel sites..travelocity or expedia.

If you stay in West Hollywood, it'd be a lot funner, but I'm sure youd be paying for it.

I just moved back to L.A. after living in Florida for the past few months - you won't find the sweet tea that they have in the South here. I asked for it in AZ (while on the road here) and they looked at me like I was an alien...

I miss the tea already, but McD has some decent sweet tea surprisingly.
