    All depends on price range and where you want to be
    (downtown near staples, hollywood, beach, etc )

    I would do the usual crawl through the sites (expedia, priceline , orbitz etc)
    to get an idea for prices , I'm sure the meter will be on gouge for the weekend
    plus the all star game/ festivities .

    Any hotel downtown is walkable to Staples or a quick uber ride away.

    If price is no object or you have mega points , across the street from Staples is
    the Ritz Carlton or the JW Marriot in LA live complex , down Fig about 1/2 a block
    is the Luxe .

    Hipster central is at the Ace hotel on Broadway (about half as much per night as JW Marriot)
    Rooms are fairly small , but there's a turntable and records in the room with a usable acoustic
    guitar in the rooms (at least in other locations but I heard it's the same here)

    Not so hipster but still a pLace is the Standard downtown on Flower , a little less than
    the ace but still pricey .
    If you are a light sleeper do not book a room near the roof top bar/lounge , bass freqs
    will keep you up till late along with sound of party people.

    The Mayfair hotel on 7th is pretty reasonable , again smallish rooms but about a 15 -20 min
    walk from staples / 15 min uber ride (traffic) . It's about a block from the Terragram ballroom
    one of LA's best new music venues, and The Monty bar (hipstery) but the bartenders
    are cool once they see you are actually having drinks and not just posing for selfies next to their
    taxidermy.

    Having said all this about downtown I've had really good luck on prices via priceline and expedia
    when housing clients in downtown.
    The Westin Bonaventure was had for $140 per night (normally about $250 per)
    It's cool for fans of late 70's early 80's sci -fi , exteriors were used for Man from Atlantis
    among many others


    Hollywood:
    W on Vine , The Roosevelt on Hollywood both fun , both expensive.

    Weho:
    The Standard , The Andaz , both on Sunset , both kinda pricey
    The best western on sunset is actually fairly nice and price varies from $140 per night to Sky High.
    The Grafton on sunset is very nice however price is typically in the $200+ per night range which seems
    a bit high for the space .
    All of the above are very close to the Sunset strip if that interests you.

    If you are driving or renting a car while in town keep in mind that parking will be an issue most everywhere.
    Most places it's $15- $20 , Im sure there are higher ones as well.

    At the end of the day it's LA , a very large major city that is served by everything from small boutique
    hotels to the all the biggest chains.

    Figure out the area you want to stay and go from there.

    Happy hunting!

    The 28th could be nutty up there again. Skills comp, fan fest and big 80's concert at Nokia (which I'm attending). Must leave very early and look forward to paying $25 or more to park.
