Definitely would not recommend. It is dirty, strewn with litter and looks totally neglected. You are harrassed constantly by hawkers and people dressed up wanting payment for photos. Definitely feels unsafe at night. It is a real shame it isnt cleaned up and some of...More

Having seen Hollywood Blvd. multiple times on TV, seeing it in person, was a let down. There were intoxicated folk throughout the area and much of the blvd. was filthy. I suppose if one is really into seeing the stars on the side walk in...More

You expect so much from 'Hollywood Boulevard' but it is just old and dirty, I did manage to get a few photos but it was a complete disappointment. They just seem to be letting it waste away, such a pity.

Fun to see first hand what you see on TV but it is very dirty. We were there during the day and it was smelly but still fun to see the stars on the sidewalk

I had been to Hollywood Boulevard years ago and wasn't impressed. Now I've come to LA again with my husband and daughter as it's their first time and knew we had to go so they could at least tick it off their 'done' list. It's...More

There are two different worlds going on in this street! Try to go around during day and night to enjoy the different aspects of this street. A lot of important tourist spots, shops, restaurants, and bars.

The walk down Hollywood Boulevard was very interesting. There’s a lot to do and a lot to see. It was very crowded but it’s expected.

Yes it is a dirty area. Yes the shops/bar are dodgy. But if you know your names (actresses, actors, TV celebrities, directors, etc.), then it's fun to walk by and play quiz with the family on whoever will first name the show or movie. More...More

We’ve travelled to Hollywood multiple times. I’m sad to say that it is in the dirtiest state I’ve seen. The amount of homeless living on the street is heartbreaking, the amount of con-artists with their “free CDs” has increased - my question to them is...More

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

I agree with the first answer, and a little bit with the 2nd. We stayed in West Hollywood rather than Hollywood itself as it is safer. To see the big Hollywood sign, the best view is from Griffiths Observatory.

It depends on your budget and what you wish to do. Downtown has some great Classic hotels abs the area around hollywood has some well known places. I have stayed in both areas as well as near a few beach cities. I would... More

I agree with most here. Depending on your budget, better to find a nicer area to stay and visit H Boulevard during the day and early evening. There's a bit to see there, but mostly quite tacky, depends what you are into of... More
