Actual mileage from Wilshire to Hollywood isn't that far. To give you an idea, if you look on the map, distance from Burbank to Pico and Hauser where John's ALFA is located, was less than the maximum towing distance for basic AAA towing, less than 7 miles maybe.?. If you have street names, I can give you an idea on time, but mileage wise, my odometer is broken so its kind of hard to give you an idea of distance. If you start asking about areas in the canyons, then that's throwing a bunch of curves and vertical travel into the mix, miles and travel time can be even more mixed up there.
A thought of a more practical nature, if you're trying to figure out what type of rental policy to get, maybe do the cheapest policy (if you're considering the 699 place) for a week or 2, driving around the area needed, seeing what the mileage averages to for the day/week, then change it up to the unlimited if necessary. If he's using it for basic transportation to and from work, and waiting to do the playing and exploring until after settled in and the ALFA arrives, it might save you a couple $$.
