Would recommend this Hilton to anyone. Great experience. The location across the street from the beach was awesome. I could go for morning or evening walks on the beach. It was walking distance from shopping and restaurants.

I'm not certain there is but the drive from LAX is nice up the coast depending on what time you fly in. It would most likely be cheaper to rent as well.
