The Sheraton Downtown would be more convenient to get to Hollywood. The metro station is right across the street. You can get a day pass for $3.00 and it will take you to Hollywood/Vine or Hollywood/Highland in about 20minutes. You can also take metro back to the airport if you are leaving from LAX though it would be quicker to take the new express bus service from Union Station. Downtown late at night is not that great and the Sheraton is your average US Sheraton--nothing special.

The W is a much nicer hotel. You could take the 720 express bus from Westwood and Wilshire to get to Santa Monica or Beverly Hills. Hollywood is a bit further but is not too far. There is a new non-stop bus service from Westwood to LAX which starts this week. You can go to www.metro.net to plan your trips if you are planning on using public transporation. Taxis are not recommended unless you have a lot of money to burn. It would be cheaper to rent a car.

Don't plan on staying at the Le Meridien as it is closed for renovations and won't be open until March 2008 at the earliest. The W also has fewer rooms available as they are renovating the rooms floor by floor during the summer. Book early if you want to use your certificate.
