Luxe hotel in rodeo drive... need to get my client to universal studio.
Don't take a Taxi. Hop on the Metro Red Line toward North Hollywood, exit Universal and take the free tram up the hill to The Tour and Universal Studios.
Pay attention to the time however as the tram stops going down the hill at a specific time. Its a long walk back down the hill to the Metro.
Metro is $1.25 or $5.00 for a Day Pass that covers all lines.
