Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius as were his subordinates, who played a large part in the making of Hollyhock House. There is a short docent led tour of the grounds which included a lot of the history of the house and its eccentric owner, Alice Barnsdall. The house itself has a few rooms open to the public and some... More

What a story this house has to tell - Aline Barnsdall had Frank Lloyd Wright design this house for her - her favorite flower being the Hollyhock. Wright designed his hollyhock which is featured in many places in the home in various iterations - stone, wood (chairs). Wright then went off to do the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, Japan, and... More

The history behind this Frank Lloyd Wright home is very interesting. The setting is beautiful. I would also encourage any visitors to stop in the Los Angeles Municpal Art Gallery which is right on the same property.

We were fortunate enough to visit on a day when the house is open to the public. Incredibly beautiful, well kept and with great comments from the volunteer guides on the spot. Highly recommended attraction in LA !

The Skinny: Parking: free paved lot at bottom and up top Price: $7 - credit card only Time: less than 30min Note: no photographs I was very excited to see the restored Frank Lloyd Wright house in Barnsdall Art Park. The parking lot was full when we got there but it was for a croquet event that was happening there.... More

... 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

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.
