Would a car rental be worthwhile for trip from and to airport and for getting around the area
Yes, you will need a car if you want to leave the hotel. however, if you plan on drinking alcohol Uber is very inexpensive here. A one way Uber ride is probably around $12.
I went by car and for us it was better as we could stroll down the beautiful mansions and stop to grab bites etc... at night we got Uber so we could drink anyway! so for us, yes a car is worth while...
We only did Uber for both trips to and from the airport. We even went to the Breakers one night and took Ubers both ways. There are a lot of Ubers in the area. I wouldn't bother with a car unless you plan to do exploring.
I got an Uber from the airport to the hotel. It was super cheap and convenient. Four seasons gives a complimentary bike with helmets. I used that to move around. The hotel is amazing is I didn't feel the need to go somewhere else to eat
