Default Where to stay in LA?

If I was visiting LA for a working holiday, arranging meetings before arrival and hopefully whilst there also, what part of LA would be the 'right' part of LA to base myself?

Any recommendations gratefully received. Currently looking at AirBnBs.

(I would not be driving. Travel would be bus/metro/uber/legs)

Sorry if not the right section, wasn't sure where to put this one.

It depends on who you are setting up meetings with. There is not a centralized location for the studios or managers. Some of them are around Burbank, some are a 45 minute drive from there. Sometimes you go for lunch in Beverly Hills, etc...

I hate to say it, but in LA you are going to need a car.

I'm out there next week. Air BnB''s definitely the way to go. Even the dumpy motels want too much. Reconsider the car rental. They're really cheap, especially with air (purchased together).

I don't drive. So any car journeys will have to be Uber. And I will be hoping to set up meetings with managers. (Not fully thought through or planned yet, but I just got a realllllly good deal on a flight, so I thought why the hell not.)

Thanks for the replies so far.

Seems to be some decent AirBnBs that fit with this option. Cheers.

Tiger... really appreciate all of that, thanks. Might be a pricey for me by the looks of it.

West Hollywood is pretty central to most places. Stayed there when I was last in LA, and will stay there again next time.

Air B'n'B is great value for money if you want to travel cheaply.

And you don't need a car. Uber is your friend.

EDIT: By "most places", I mean everywhere else you'll want to go. Unless you're only there for meetings and then retreating to your room.

Yep, that makes sense, I'm leaning towards this kinda thinking.
