Can’t comment on the hotel since I live here but since it’s your first time, probably one in central LA near downtown or west LA near the beaches. Santa Monica beach and pier is a stable for tourists. Hollywood Walk of Fame is probably the most touristy place— I personally don’t find it worth checking out, just reminds me of LV Strip. Good museums to check out like the Broad and the Getty or Marciano Art Foundation for your Instagram fix. Then go to a rooftop bar in Downtown (Perch is a popular one) at night. Then head to Leo’s Tacos at night for some drunchies.

But my favorite aspect of LA is the FOOD

If you make your way out to Santa Monica, Abbot Kinney in Venice is a great strip. Awesome places to eat, drink and some good shopping as well. Butchers Daughter has a fantastic brunch and their drinks are top notch.

Sheraton Grand downtown is pretty nice. Avoid the Westin

Wish I had seen this sooner I was there too. What did you end up doing and where did you stay? I enjoyed Santa Monica
