Myself and two buddies are planning a trip to L.A. to attend a Cardinals vs Dodgers baseball series in mid May. We have not been to L.A. and are looking for advice on where to stay. Hollywood or Downtown L.A? We are not planning on renting a car, so close proximity to public transportation would be ideal. I know there is a Dodger Stadium Express that provides free shuttle from Union Station to the ballpark. I've read mixed reviews about staying in Hollywood. Would Downtown L.A. be a better choice? Any ideas?
