Celebrity hotel had no availability for their dates.
They're looking at Days inn by wyndham Santa Monica now. Maybe hotel carmel, but that's more expensive.
San Francisco isn't happening now .

The days in is a long way from the beach where the metro stop is. Is there a bus line nearby?

There is a big blue bus stop very nearby apparently, one block away that gets to Venice beach and Santa Monica pier.
The hotel seems a bit tatty /budget type but reviews are ok , it includes a bit of breakfast too.
So the plan is check out of Disney program accommodation
Spend one night at All Star Sports,
Fly to Washington, one night
Coach to New York, three nights,
Fly to San Diego, three nights,
Train to LA, five nights
Fly to Vegas, five nights
Vegas to Manchester, Galway 😀😀

Oh good, the bus should also be able to take them to Hollywood and other areas. Im not familiar with the buses but I have seen the blue buses on the roads. That hotel is at the outer limits of Santa Monica, you wouldnt want them walking around there too much so the bus stop being near is a big plus. One of the things about LA is that its such a car culture theres very few people walking the streets away from the tourist areas and it can be hard to assess how safe a neighbourhood is and its also a bit unnerving when theres no other pedestrians around. Make sure they also have Uber/Lyft and use that too. Sounds like a wonderful trip. Which coach are they using between Washington and NYC. Ive taken Megabus and Greyhound between Philadelphia and New York and I can recommend Megabus. Greyhound was a bit, um, interesting. Lots of odd characters in the bus station and on board.

Thanks for all your advice and info landandword 17, that hotel isn't booked yet I wish they'd go for something a bit more expensive though.
The coach to New York from Washington is a Peter Pan coach ! No Disney connection lol, have you heard of that ?

I love SFO but we skipped it last time as 3 nights at holiday in fishermans half was 1000 and its no better than a premier inn.

Fishermans Whalf Union square etc are safe enough but as others have said there are some very dodgy areas. I have worked doors where Angels fear to tread but SAN Francisco is the only city in the US where I have ever been worried. For this reason its imperative that the hotel is in the right area.

Thanks sew109, they're not going to San Francisco now, but they're deciding on a budget hotel in LA 😮
