A 3 day stop over

We are staying at the Hyatt Regency Central Plaza in November spending 1 day at Universal can someone let me know the best way to get from the hotel to the stuidos we wont have a car were thinking of getting a cab if not too expensive also a front line pass.

Century City -- while centrally located -- is an inconvenient place to stay if you don't have a car. While Universal is only 20 miles from Universal, it would take 3 different buses/trains to get to Universal (and would take about an hour).

A taxi would take half as long and would cost about $55-$60 EACH WAY (including tip). It would be less expensive to take a coach tour through, for example, All Los Angeles Tours (allllosangelestours.com) since they charge about $32 more than the price of the Universal ticket alone for the RETURN trip (including admission).

Alternatively, stay on the Sunset Strip or at the 5-star Renaissance Hollywood (the latter is a 10-minute taxi ride or 4-minute metro ride to Universal).

Good luck!
