Municipal parking in the area is the most expensive probably in all of the States. If you think it's worth it to see the stars in the sidewalk and the would be performers trying their abilities on the public then go ahead and fight the traffic to get there.

Several guys giving out free CD's. I reluctantly got one since he was on my way. He said it was free. As soon as I touch it, he signed his name on the CD and asked me to buy it for $5. I refused him but he wouldn't go away. I didn't pay him since the street was crowded with... More

Under the heading of been there done that, if you are a first time visitor to Los Angeles, you must see Hollywood Blvd. It is best, I think, to see by car. There is nothing that special to get you out of your car. Yes, there are the hand-prints at the Mann's Theater (used to be The Chinese Theater) and... More

Could not avoid this place every day as staying at the Loews hotel we passed through daily, you got the stars along the street for the customary photo and their's plenty of bars as restaurants to visit.

Unfortunately, this is no Times Square, nor Sunset Strip. Hollywood Blvd has deteriorated into a dirty street cluttered with panhandlers and con artists. The walk of fame is interesting, but watch your wallet and avoid any special deals.

It is scary during the day. I would never attempt to go there at night. Panhandlers everywhere. Protesters. It is not a safe area. To see it once was okay but I couldn't wait to get back on the tour bus. I would have been happy just to drive by. I did walk the stairs the celebrities do on Oscar... More

Hollywood Boulevard as many may describe, seems to be much nicer on TV than it actually is. I would say it is due to the area surrounding it which is not the cleanest or "prettiest" area you may experience from LA. However, this shouldn't stop anyone from going. I think it's a must to experience LA. The main attraction there... More

On out recent trip to the west coast we began in San Francisco and ended in LA as we wanted to see what life would be like to live in an apartment near Hollywood Boulevard (we stayed 5 days). Sadly this end to the holiday was quite a disappointment. The Boulevard to me was ageing, lacking in investment, overcrowded and... More

The road is terribly dirty, it smells and feels completely unsafe to walk there! It is too commercial and after few steps you feel so disappointed and regret even being there. Definitively don t bother as it is not what it uses to be and definitively not what you would expect.

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.
