Very busy but exciting

Great to finally see all the hand and footprints of the stars. It was fun but very crowded especially around the more famous. Can't stop for photos because of the crowds.

The whole of this area is commercial & quite seedy. We spent very little time in the area as it was absolutely not what I had expected.

I loved the Chinese theatre and finding all the celebrity hand prints in the forecourt! Definitely worth a visit for some great photo opportunities! Watch out for the dressed up characters and people trying to sell you CDs!!

A little too touristy for our liking. It was interesting to see the hand and foot prints, but there were so many people it's hard see it properly. Worth visiting if you're in the area or actually seeing a show, I wouldn't bother making a special trip to see it though.

Beautiful architecture. It was great spending time out the front looking at all the hand prints and foot prints of current and past stars. It was pretty cool placing our own hands in the hand prints of the stars. The kids had a great time comparing hand sizes. However, like a lot of other tourist spots in the US, you're... More

The best place to see a movie--period. I could go on about the historic nature of this theater (the only theater that has as much history would be Radio City Music Hall), but that is only 1/4 of the joy of this theater. What makes it wonderful is that theater 7 is the undamaged movie palace (split up into a... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
