I'm taking a class in El Segundo at the end of September and need to book a hotel. The class location is 400 N Continental Blvd. The suggested hotel is the Double Tree. How long of a trip would it be from one of the hotels in LA to get to my class location. Doesn't seem like the Double Tree is walking distance to any restaurants or pubs that I can go to and hang out after a long day of class. I'm also open to stay in one of the beach areas if it isn't too far. I need to be able to have a good time after class.
