Massively regenerated area - was worth a quick stop

We were last here 16 years ago - a hell of a lot has changed. It is much more geared toward tourism proper, now - and people seemed to like it. Very busy; a lot of the expected... read more

We went a few year ago and we found it a bit unexciting. Shopping was bad as my husband and I were not a size 0 but I did find something to wear, a scalf and I still have it. The only good thing was when I met little Richards. He lived in the hotel we stayed at.for the younger... More

We were last here 16 years ago - a hell of a lot has changed. It is much more geared toward tourism proper, now - and people seemed to like it. Very busy; a lot of the expected tourist trimmings - worth a little visit, perhaps, just a drive-through, even. We didn't stay long - 30 minutes was all we... More

Once again, another attraction that you just have to say you've seen for yourself in person if you're a movie fan at all. The legendary Hollywood sign up in the hills has been in countless movies, TV shows and Documentaries. More of a vibe once you're there than anything else. If you're out in LA and want to do some...

We stopped at Hollywood for a photo-walk right around the back of the area where you go to photo the Hollywood sign-much better. The stars on the pavements were interesting, as was the Chinese Theatre. A little too much for my liking, tho' a good experience. Enjoy it for what it's worth!

We visited here last month, we found the whole area to be run down and grubby. We weren't surprised when our tour guide drove through this area, rather than stopped. The history of some of the locations was fantastic, although the state of the buildings, rubbish and the constant presence of homeless people put us right of. I'm sure the... More

We did not devote much time to this area as it was in such a run down and poor area of the city, not really worth the detour!

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.
