We are staying here for 4 nights this week, and just wanted some help on places to eat around the area.
Ideally, for eating, we would not want to go too far from the hotel, but we do have a car available so can drive to places (if there is parking). The reviews of this hotel seem to say there are lots of great restaurants surrounding the hotel, but I can't find any.
The map the hotel gave us has a place on La Cienega Blvd listed as restaurant row, are there nice places here? (We would prefer closer to the hotel, within walking distance - if we could stay on S Beverly Drive, or near Rodeo Drive).
Secondly, we were going to drive to most places we wanted to see, so Santa Monica beach, Venice Beach (is this place still worth seeing?), Hollywood Blvd, Westfield Century City, Beverly Center. Will most of these places have parking available?
Finally, we wanted to do one of these tours to see the famous houses, however as we have the car, would we be able to get a map from somewhere so we can just drive around them ourselves?
Thanks for the help
