I love living in West Hollywood. There are few places where I'd rather live in Los Angeles than this neighborhood. Where I live, everything is very walkable -- supermarkets, restaurants, bars, pet stores, schools. I feel like there's always something to do here and there's ample parking as well! I take advantage of the beautiful public library here as well. The only cons of WeHo is the homeless population and the commute -- two things that are relatively unavoidable in Los Angeles.

Truly an incredible neighborhood! It has more walkability than most of Los Angeles and has kept the old Spanish charm in many of the homes. There is fantastic coffee shops, restaurants, and bars all within walking distance. A lot of people have dogs, so it is very pet friendly and easy to meet people when walking.
I love this area, you can walk to many coffee places, bars and supermarkets. I am one blco away from Melrose, and it is always quite at night. The parking situation is a little hard, but it is worth it! The rent is controlled and you can still find great prices on places that are still in development.
