My grandmother's funeral is a week from tomorrow (Monday) in Whittier. I will be coming in on Saturday, and need to figure out places to stay. I would like to see my dear friend while I'm in town, and he lives in Irvine. Would staying in downtown LA make sense? If not, what town would you stay in? We want to stay in a nice hotel in an area with some fun things to do or walk to, especially for my dh and 2yo ds, who will be staying at the hotel for the actual funeral. Any ideas? Thanks!
