You clearly don't understand the distinctions between West Los Angeles, West Hollywood and The Westside, the latter of which encompasses the two former.

But, as I said, carry on, Mr. know-it-all LA booster.
Are you dense ?
I said numerous times I consider West Hollywood and Beverly Hills to be a part of West LA/Westside. I don't care about that city limits, it's the same thing.
La Cienga, roughly. I'm not alone, as the LA Times and Wikepedia, Time Out Magazine etc say the same thing.

For the 5th time, I didn't reference the West Los Angeles neighborhood. Ever. Clearly, Melrose doesn't run through the West Los Angeles neighborhood, so what the hell are you talking about?

The stretches of freeway you mentioned for LA... I never even thought of that possibly being a "loop."

However, downtown LA is indeed encircled by a ring of freeways---not a loop per se:

downtownla.com

You would think in theory, you could drive, going clockwise, the 110 to the 101 to the 10 back to the 110. Some years ago, I tried to go clockwise and counterclockwise "around" downtown LA using these freeways, just to see if I could do it. Apparently, I don't remember if it was counterclockwise or clockwise, it's only possible to do it one way, and not the other.
