Way to Commercialized

Was a little disappointed by it. It was very commercialized, was hoping for more of an authentic feel of LA.

As a tourist to LA you have to come here, but what a crazy place it is. Wide eyed tourists wandering up and down, having photos snapped with faux celebrities, looking at stars on the pavement and hand prints in front of the Chinese Theatre, being accosted by tour touts and young men pushing CDs of their latest singles or...

Hollywood Blvd. is filled with tourists and kitschy shops. It is still pretty seedy and dirty unless you are at Hollywood and Highland. Lots of hustle and bustle there and around the Chinese Theater. Be CAREFUL about the traffic. Drivers aren't always aware of pedestrians.

The area itself is somewhat beat up, but I still enjoyed some of the sights and seeing the stars. The city should take some time to clean this place up. Tends to lose some glitz when you have to step over homeless people at times

I was quite disappointed. I found it dirty, and was surprised at how unkempt the walk of stars was. I would definitely skip this.

I had wanted to see this my whole life and was very disappointed. The area is incredibly crowded and there are homeless people everywhere. It seems like everyone you pass is either begging or trying to sell you something. There were dozens of people apparently handing out CD's of their music and offering to autograph them. If you take one,... More

We have been to Hollywood Boulevard multiple times. We like the Hollywood and Highland Mall Area. We like the movie theaters such as El Capitan and the Chinese Theater. Jimmy Kimmel has his studio there and we've gone to see his show live. There are various museums to see. Metro has a station on Hollywood Boulevard. We have also dined... More

Really it's been the great disappointment. Dreams of glamor and beauty had been broken to pieces when we felt and saw stench, dirt and human negligence.

I won't be back. One visit to this overpriced place full of homeless people, overpriced restaurants, shops and hotels is enough for me. You can't even see most of the stars as there are so many people walking on them. Use caution when walking around here, especially at night.

When I went to LA this was one of the things I was looking forward to. Instead the area is dirty with trash, and is not well unkept. There are people asking for money left and right. And it's expensive to park.( yes I know this is a major city) overal, I don't recommend coming to this if you want... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood 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.
