  • Need to find a safe, decent hotel near Cedar Sinai Medical Center

    Can anyone give me suggestions on a safe, decent hotel (not too expensive either) that is close to the Cedar Sinai Medical Center? I would prefer it to be within walking distance if possible.

    Also, I am an LEO in Orlando, FL and I was wondering what the laws are in CA for me to travel with/ carry my firearm on me.

    HR 218 covers you, even in CA. If this is going to be an extended stay call the hospital and see if they have a place for you. I know when my dad was killed and mom injured in TN they had a house for my sister and I to stay in so we didn't have to pay for a month of hotel rooms. All they told us was to replace anything we used.

      If the hospital doesn't have options, check with AAA. They have regional guides with listings, and the AAA discount is the best one out there. It's usually better then the government discounts.

        Cedar sinai is on the "westside" and only 15-20 mins from LAX to drive via the 405 fwy( except for rush hour).The local hotels in the area will be expensive as you are on the border of Bev.Hills/West Hlywd-stay away from anything in Hollywood proper ( uuughhh).best to check the LAX are hotels ,including the extended stay places for rates-you can ask your airlines for same info........

        Caveat about travelling with gun.make sure your flight doesn't have connectors( flts you must deplane and reboard at different hub cities) the local ramp rats at each airport-not the most honest or desireable folks despite the TSA "screening" process for employment( yet another reason why we SHOULDN'T have a national federal police force) tend to pilfer bags and know which bags have guns in them-they have access to xray machines on the AOA ramps.stay non stop and you'll lessen the chance of your gun coming up "missing",and later being used in some whacked out crime in a city you've never been to. BTW,you can travel around most of L.A. without a gun- I do it regularly now,and never encounter more than a nutzo transient-they're quite colorful and sometimes down right entertaining,or a rude driver-most don't speak english or really know how to drive.rent a car,taxis are expensive here and don't stop for folks at nite.........

          Looks like the hospital has a listing of hotel/motels in the area that offer discounted rates

            Thanks for the infomation. All the hotels that I've looked at in the area are REALLY expensive...even the "discounted" rates offered if you mention Cedar Sinai are still real expensive. I live on a cops salary, and I can't afford to pay $200+ a night when I'm going to be staying out there for 10 nights.

            I guess I will look a little ways away from the Medical Center and look into an Extended Stay kinda hotel.

            Thanks again

              Extended stays will probably save you $$ on meals etc.

              You can also try the "government rate".

                How much are you willing to spend?

                Price is often ruled by when you are travelling, so if you are coming during the summer, you're facing vacation rates.

                I found these - AAA rate for May/June

                Courtyard by Marriott Los Angeles Century City Beverley Hills
                from $154.00 USD
                10320 West Olympic Boulevard
                Los Angeles, CA 90064 US

                Holiday Inn Express Century City, Ca
                from $152.11 USD
                10330 West Olympic Boulevard
                Los Angeles, CA 90064 US

                Best Western Royal Palace Inn & Suites
                from $114.00 USD
                2528 South Sepulveda Boulevard
                Los Angeles, CA 90064 US

                These are all 3 stars from AAA, and have a guarenteed rate. If you don't have AAA, it's cheap to join, and worth the discounts.

                Extended Stay is one of the chains that has studios for longer stays. Closest I found was LAX area.

                  Michelle, try going through the "Reserve a Room" portal through the Southwest Airlines website. You don't need to use the airline to book a room, and they have discounted rates. I've also had good luck with gov't rates at Best Western.

                    You know, their are some very good independent hotels around that charge much less than the big name hotels. You could possibly look into one of those after you arrive and see which ones fit your needs. They are usually older but since you are going to be spending most of your time in the hospital anyway it is just a bed and shower.

                    My rule of thumb for SoCal is if you see bars on house windows then you're in the wrong neighborhood, generally.

                      Well my budget was around $80-100/night...but it looks like that isn't going to happen. So I guess $100-150/night.

                      Thank you for the hotel listings that you found...I will call and find out more information. And I do have AAA, so I'm glad I can put that to use. I will be traveling from June 2-12.

                      Thanks again for your help

                        You might also ask if they have a hospital rate that would come in cheaper than the AAA. A lot of times places will do that if you call to make the reservations. If you can get a place that serves breakfast and dinner like Homewood Suites you can cut a whole lot out of your food budget depending on how many are in your party. I know Homewood Suites in Seattle would even give free shuttle rides 24/7 which would cut out the car rental also if they do it in LA also.

                          Cedars Sinai is located in the middle of where LAPD's Hollywood and Wilshire areas, and the LASD's West Hollywood station come together, throw in Beverly Hills PD, too, at the west-side of the circle around C/S.

                          I'll be back to work on Sunday, and I'll try to get you the desk phone numbers...perhaps when you explain who you are, and what your in town for, the respective desk officers/deupties might be able to recommend a lesser known, but good hotel for your needs....let's hope my call load is a small one, on Mother's day.

                          Regards,

                            Here are the numbers which MAY have more time to talk to you and help you with your search. They are non-emergency numbers of the four entities which are near Cedars Sinai...

                            LAPD Hollywood Community Relations Office (CRO) 213/485-4316.

                            LAPD Wilshire CRO 213/473-0200. NOTE: C/S is in their area

                            LASD West Holllywood CRO 310/855-8850, Ext.423. NOTE: C/S is across the street from them.

                            Beverly Hills PD non-emergency desk 310/285-2122.

                            Again, perhaps calling them and telling them who you are, and the nature of your trip, may yield assistance you may not have expected...but we'll never know, until you try. Good luck to you.
