Public Transport to Tourist Attractions

My husband and I have booked to stay at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Beverley Hills for 4 nights, which I believe is on S. Beverly Drive. We have not rented a car whilst staying in LA, as we thought we would be able to get around on public transport. We would like to visit Universal Studios and the many tourist spots. Will we have difficulty in reaching them, any suggestions please. We have arranged car hire for when we leave LA as we wish to do some touring before heading for Vegas. Have we made a mistake here?

Without question, you need a car in Los Angeles, especially when staying at Crowne Plaza.

Yes, you should rent your car at LAX (there are numerous agencies there). Your hotel has parking which is only $15/day if you join their Priorty Club (www.ichotelsgroup.com). You could get around on public transportation, but it would be extremely time consuming and complicated.
