She might just want to check with the Front Desk they always know the best place to eat and go too.

She's got that covered , travels quite a lot with work . I was just wondering if anyone had experience of the area , we have friends over there but the best advice they could give us was hire a car and drive out of the area ! She's not got much spare time , she's just wondering if it's best spent beside the hotel pool or seeing a sight or 2

There are Definitely some neighborhoods you want to stay away from!

Given that measles, one of the most contagious viruses in the world is on the rise in CA (gleaned from an LA Times article today), I might be inclined to stay in my hotel room as much as possible.

Bäco Mercat, the best sandwich ever!
A friend introduced me to this place and the taste is something she will always remember.
Not an attraction but certainly a must eat.

Trust your local health department to give you up to the minute information about what and who to avoid. Sarcasm intended.

I LOVE LA!

I've always loved LA, but mostly when I lived there.

Holy crap (Frank style) thank you for reminding me how much I love that city. The vid shows a few bikinis (OMG) but you can see the feeling that's in LA. The funny thing is..,I didn't notice one single BENZ in the VID. Laughing to myself now.....

I guess a lot depends on her interests, but in general thee's not much to browse in downtown, although MacArthur Park (made famous in the song) is close-by and is a nice place to hang-out. Taxis are (or certainly when I lived there)a bit scarce and expensive in LA, but if she doesn't want to hire a car, she'll just have to bear the cost. Griffith Park is a nice drive and the views from the top over the city (smog permitting) are beautiful. The observatory also up top often has exhibitions running if she likes science-related things. Heading in the other direction, she could drive right down Sunset Blvd until it meets the coast a little north of Santa Monica at Malibu, passing some famous residences, and stop for a cocktail and a bite at Gladstones 4 Fish (one of my fave places to hang-out) on the beach.Then carry on down PCH1 to Sta.Monica Pier and Venice Beach for a some good strolling around and rubber-necking. From SM, she could probably get a bus back downtown if she wants a slightly different experience.

ETA: Out of curiosity Google-foo, I just found out that Gladstone's has not only dropped the '4 Fish', but is closing in the fall, so I'd definitely be headed there if it were me!

For just a few dollars she can take the bus and go see the ocean. Forget about Hollywierd.

I don't know why it doesn't work Chuck. It does for me, even the quoted link in your post works for me.

Maybe it got "crushed like little girl" because of all the nice looking cars (which are not MB).

Sorry ,

Yes she did enjoy the little that she saw , as it was she only had about half a day so she asked at the hotel and took a map . Mainly just went for a long walk , found an observation deck and the food market and a couple of other odds and ends but as mentioned , there's not much there for the tourist , just as well the meetings took most of the time up .
Thanks to everyone who replied
