I’d be inclined to stay around Disney and travel up to Universal for the day. There’s plenty of mid-level hotels there and I found this site which has some great tips on using public transport to get between them.
Oops, looks like you can’t post links. Didn’t realize. The site is called disunplugged, search for “no car?”

You should consider staying Downtown. It's halfway between Anaheim & Hollywood, and you can get the subway to the latter very easily. Downtown has changed a lot in the last ten years, lots of cool places to eat and drink and new art museums up on Bunker Hill. The Biltmore is a classic old school hotel, 4 stars and a great location. The Omni is more modern and across the S.Grand Ave from the Broad Museum. Also 4 stars.

We stayed at Loews Hotel Santa Monica . It was on the beach , close to the pier , great neighbourhood , beautiful hotel . It was about 20 minutes from LAX but would be far from Disney .
Great, thanks Chris 👍

If it’s your first trip to Disney then you’ll want at least 3 days there between the parks. If budget allows then cannot recommend staying on property enough. Not only do you get the all important early entry but a tonne of other benefits too. It’s not cheap but if it’s a once in a lifetime thing then do it. Mrs B and I did DL hotel and loved it.Â

The unofficial guide to Disneyland is worth purchasing before your trip, as is a listen to the Mousetalgia podcast.Â
Pretty sure there’s day trips that will allow you to do Universal from Anaheim.Â

Agree with you Brassy - We purchased a family 4-day pass for Disneyland and it was the best thing we did!

Hyatt Place LAX/El Segundo is good if you book early enough to get a good rate. I stay there a lot (around ~20-30 nights / year) when I am in LA on business as my client's offices are a 10 minute walk away. Breakfast is included in the rate, with the hotel having a gym, swimming pool as well as laundry facilities. They do have a 24hr kitchen for other meals (i'm not a huge fan of what's on offer) but there are plenty of places to go to within a 20 min walk up on Sepulveda Blvd or you can always take an Uber downtown El Segundo (E Grand and Main St) or Manhattan beach for more options.
Does anyone know what the Kimpton Everly in Hollywood is like ?
