A charming combination of college town and big city, the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, is a lively area full of restaurants, wine bars, coffee houses, and movie houses. Upscale entertainment runs through every corner, and its proximity to Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Century City, and the beach makes staying in Westwood hotels particularly appealing.
Westwood surrounds UCLA, and the large student population paved the way for a number of transportation options, both from LAX and around Westwood itself. While you can take taxis and shuttles from LAX to the neighborhood, the express LAX FlyAway bus is a good option, if the schedules aligns with yours. Of course, the most flexible way to see the city is by taking advantage of Westwood rental cars. The University draws notable performers from around the world to its campus. Staying in one of the hotels in Los Angeles close to campus means that going to Royce Hall for ballet or Geffen Playhouse to see world-renowned theater is an easy proposition. Film fans will love not only seeing art house and mainstream movies, but also getting a glimpse into the process through the filmmaker panels and frequent movie premieres that are held in Westwood Village. Contemporary and classical art fans will enjoy the unique offerings of the Hammer Museum, and fashionistas may find themselves drawn to the Westwood Village shops as well as the Westside Pavilion. And, of course, the designer stores of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills are only a few minutes to the east of most hotels in Westwood. From there, you can easily head six miles west to enjoy the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean and the beaches of Santa Monica.
