I have a morning flight into LAX and I'd like to do some sightseeing before taking a Metrolink train out to the suburbs in the evening to stay with a friend. I'm looking for luggage storage so I don't have to carry around my bags all day.
Looking online, it looks like there used to be lockers at Union Station (seven years ago). But Amtrak's station information page says "No Lockers". They do have "Baggage Storage", but since I'm not traveling on Amtrak, so that option might not be available to me.
I tried calling Metrolink. They referred me to Amtrak and LA Metro. LA Metro told me that there are no options due to security reasons. Amtrak said I'd probably have to be a ticketed passenger to use the service.
Are there any other options in downtown Los Angeles* that'd keep me from dragging my luggage around all day?
*Hollywood area would be acceptable too since it's only 15 minutes by subway from downtown
