We are staying in West Hollywood in April 06, i was wondering if there is anywhere to park near Rodeo Drive as we are hireing a car?
There are a number of city-owned parking lots and parking structures that feature "2 hours free parking". Just look for that message and you're set.
Alternatively, if you are staying in W. Hollywood, you could take the Metro Bus 304 (which runs down Santa Monica Bl which is the center of W. Hollywood) right into Beverly Hills. The stop to get off at is "Santa Monica Bl and Canon Drive". Walk back 4 blocks to the corner of Rodeo and Santa Monica and turn right. The fare is $1.25, it takes less than 10 minutes for the ride and you don't need to remember where you parked the car (nor pay the excess parking fee should you stay more than 2 hours)
