... while the walking tour in the rooms open to the public is worth the trip, too much of the house is either not restored or restored for special purpose use. An observant visitor however can get a sense of the house's original design, but a before/after video in the garage or a decent set of pre-restoration pictures would greatly... More

It is a beautiful piece of art, and to see it is such a treat. The grounds are run down, which is disappointing, so don't expect more than the beauty of eyeing this classic piece of architecture.

It was a treat to see a FLW designed home from almost 100 years ago. His attention to detail was amazing. You must wear foot coverings (provided) and you can only look into the dining room, music and living rooms and library. The docents provide the history of the different rooms of the house. There is also a written explanation... More

If you like FLW, you have to check it out. Even though he got fired (for cost overruns... Surprise) the place was finished and then restored to his standards. You get to see a portion of the house, and nothing upstairs at this point. The living room to perfect. Dinning room as well. The docents were very knowledgeable and very... More

Although we have lived in the LA area for years, it took visitors from out of town to get us to Frank Lloyd Wright's fantastic Hollyhock House. The house has recently been partially refurbished and has an amazing 360 degree view. It isn't necessary to be a Wright fan to enjoy a visit here. We booked a tour with a... More

The house is nice, but you don't get to see much of anything on the tour. There are more signs warning you about the long-term consequences of touching a wall or anything-even unintentionally, then there is about the house. There are informational books you can read while touring, but the books is all text. It would have been nice to... More

the home is amazing, the docents are extremely well prepared and enthusiastic about the property, but the 'walk wright in' self guided tour only shows a tiny fraction of the home, essentially only what has been 'completely' restored, but so much of the beauty of the home, the glass details in the bedrooms and the flow from space to space...

If you like Frank Lloyd Wright this is a must see. Great house, friendly volunteers, and amazing location. Wish you could take photos inside, but understand why they don't let you. Well worth an hour or so of your time.

Years ago, it took me hours to walk to this destination, only to find out that it's closed for renovation. I would never have fathomed that Hollyhock House would cross my path again a week ago when my friends took me here as a "surprise". After USD$23 million of renovation, the lucky ones are able to witness the greatness of... 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.
