If you visit Los Angeles with the hopes of spotting a celeb or watching a location shoot (and c'mon, who doesn't visit LA with those hopes?) then the Sofitel Los Angeles might be the best place for you to stay.

This summer we've seen the hotel show up in an episode of True Blood and Entourage, both Made-For-HBO hit television shows.

Next up for the hotel? Possibly at stint on the new Shaq Vs. reality show where baller Shaquille O'Neal goes up against other superstar athletes from different fields (and courts and pools) of sports. The NY Post reports that Shaq and boxer Oscar De La Hoya were seen touring the kitchen of Simon LA, helmed by Chef Kerry Simon at the Sofitel.

Rates at The Sofitel tend to be pricey, starting at $335 a night on their website. However, this hotel can be booked on Hotwire.com for a lot less but remember it's Hotwire and you do take your chances. The hotel is listed as a 4.5 star hotel in the Beverly Hills-West Hollywood region. Booking through Hotwire could also land you at the London West Hollywood right below the Sunset Strip which is also a pretty good place to be for celeb-spotting. We've spied Kevin Spacey there once. Just sayin'.
