I traveled to LA last Friday. Arriving at 11:40am on July 8 and leaving at 11:55am on July 9, I was on the ground for less than 24-hours. But it reminded me of how much I miss LA's food and weather. I still hate the traffic.
I stayed at the Standard Hotel in Downtown LA. At $99 per night, it was excellent value. The hotel was comfortable, fashionable, and affordable.
