I'm desperately craving to get on an airplane and check into a Marriott indistinguishable from the million I have stayed in before and snack on tiny food in a lounge with average wine and then go have dinner by myself in a nice restaurant, then go back to my room & put the TV on in the background as I sit on the bed and spend way too long on a PowerPoint slide no one is really going to look at, safe in the knowledge that not only is all of it paid for, I'm also actually getting paid to do this.

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move.

I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
