Very popular and famous place. This typical attraction of Hollywood is always crowd of people and had to be seen at least one time during your stay: you will enjoy to look at the sidewalk to find your hero. Surrounding area is full of shops and restaurants.

Stopped in and caught a movie - very impressive building and the prices are not too bad given the location. Iconic! Home of movies.

While in the city, a friend and I went to the Chinese Theater to see American Sniper. The theater is an experience that all film fans should experience once. The nostalgia begins outside on Hollywood Blvd with the Walk of Fame and carries inside with several famous props on display. The facility itself is amazing. The walls, ceiling, and entrance...

Loved all the footprints of these old stars, wow Marilyn Monroe's feet were tiny! Great place to visit and live down memory lane. This place will never get old. Can get quite touristy at times, and crowded with people dressed up as super heroes. A must see Garuman's Chinese Theatre Square and the many footprints embedded in cement. I don't... More

We have always passed on the opportunity to visit the Grauman's Chinese Theatre square, but on our last trip, we made it a point to go. It was definitely worth it. So many stars, past and present, have left thier memories cemented in time with their hand and foot prints in front of the theater. It was fun to walk... More

We visited as part of a tour package. The tour guide was truly informative and understood the limited attention span of teens -- he didn't linger in one spot too long, but kept our group moving. A movie trailer started playing as we left the stage area, and the acoustics of the room are amazing! Wish we had time to... More

Are in around ? Take a look. That's all. Take a picture with your digital camera but, do not print it.

Grauman's Chinese Theater is just one of those places you have to see, like Blarney Castle or the Spanish Steps, even though you know it's mostly a tourist trap. The pavement area is randomly studded with the hand and footprints of stars new and old. There's no particular organization. And the place is crowded with visitors and hucksters of various... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
