The Best Inns In Los Angeles, for an Incredible California Stay
A bed and breakfast inn can be a great choice of place to stay for your Los Angeles vacation. Here are three of the very best bed and breakfast choices in this exciting city.
Have you ever thought of choosing a bed and breakfast for your stay in Los Angeles? The city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States, and welcomes millions of visitors each year. Most of them stay in one of the many chain hotels which the city has to offer. However, sometimes it is a good idea to think outside the box and consider an alternative to the Hilton, Best Western, or Marriott.
If you are looking for a high standard of accommodation, with a personal touch, you should consider if a bed and breakfast inn would be a good choice for your next vacation. Most are family-owned, and offer a comfortable, personalized stay. Rooms tend to be individually furnished, and many of the inn buildings have a long history.
Another huge advantage of bed and breakfast accommodations is that it tends to be a good value compared to a hotel. If you factor in the high standard of the rooms, the personal attention, and in particular that breakfast is included in with your room rate, this all adds up to a great value. Sometimes a free evening reception or snacks are also included. In Los Angeles, a huge benefit can also be that car parking is included with the room rate. This can be a savings of anywhere between $20 and $50 per day over a hotel stay.
Here we have picked some great bed and breakfast places for you to consider for your stay in Los Angeles.
