We made a self guided visit to the house. There was a booklet fillet with information to pick up at the entrance so we could find out about each room but the several docents were very keen to provide further information to us. We spent...More
I purchased the last two tickets for the interior/exterior tour a few days in advance, so it appears to be necessary to book prior.
The tour lasted approximately an hour and our docent was informative and helpful. The house itself is stunning and seems to...More
We got off to a bad start: Traffic was heavier than predicted, we found no signs identifying the property or advising us how to get to the Visitors Center. When we did get there, a couple of minutes later than the requested time but before...More
Nice FLW house in a nice park. Easy to find and easy to park.
The docents are plentiful, knowledgeable and friendly.
Most of the house is roped off. You can't see anything! The self-guided tour grinds to a standstill! Short description of my visit...More
I'm giving this a 3 because you are basically only allowed to walk in the entrance and look around. You can't enter any rooms and you don't see most of the house. Just the front. What they have done is great. The living room is...More
If you love FLW architecture this house is probably on your to do list. It was a great home but the access was very limited. Most rooms are blocked off and you can’t see many features of the house. The staff are very accommodating and...More
The Hollyhock house is very easy to visit as there is ample parking, no crowds, it is centrally located and it is very reasonable, The house has been brilliantly restored to its original state on the inside. Only the ground floor rooms are open (living/dining/den)...More
Like a lot of Wright's projects, it's finally found a deep-pocketed trust to keep it up, as the maintenance on these historic properties must be staggering, especially after falling into disuse during the decades before being genuinely appreciated. We learned (as you will) that Wright's...More
It's a shame that so many people in LA haven't heard of Hollyhock, much less visited...though selfishly, it's great since you never have to fight for free parking or the perfect spot for the views of downtown LA, the Hollywood sign and Griffith observatory.
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.
