  • if you are in Hollywood and not walk this road then it's not worth it. it was fun to see so many actors and actresses names that I watched in a single place.  more »
  • Not the experience that has been shown on tv. The area does not feel safe. It feels dirty. If you are going start at the Chinese Theatre and go a couple blocks in each direction as this area is a.....  more »
  • We had a great time walking up and down the streets looking for stars we knew. My son and husband both liked it. Easier to do during the day as there were a lot of vendors in late afternoon.  more »
  • What I like to call the Times Square of LA. Tons of action, visual entertainment is all over. Plenty of activities for the entire family. I recommend coming down to the Hollywood Walk-of-Fame for many things. One that I love to do is go for a walk down the strip and read all the names on the street for blocks. It’s amazing how simply walking down the street can be stimulating and a great time. I recommend coming down on the weekend in the summer if you’re looking for action. I also recommend seeing the street when it’s got the red carpet out. It’s something to see. If you’re lucky you can often catch one of your favourite bands performing outside for free. Well worth the visit. I saw Cypress Hill Outdoors here randomly.
  • If your really into Hollywood stars, then you definitely want to walk the Holly Walk-of-fame. It is crowded and I don't know of a time, day or night, when it isn't full of people, so watch your children and pets. There is so much to see and do, I really like the wax museum. The character actors are really cool to see, but remember they are working so be sure to tip them when you take pics of them or with them.
  • As expected, it's a tourist trap with lots of tourists and street performers. Interestingly, the main section is not all that big or glitzy as you might expect - the street level facade is all done up but most of the buildings are 2 or 3 stories high. Stumbling across Donald Trump's start was kind of cool - it's located near the Dolby theatre entrance towards Footlockers. I had a couple of hustlers approach me to try sell their mix CDs claiming they performed at some well known events and venues. I just politely declined and They were pretty cool.
  • Historic place for stars. Too bad it's not kept up. Very badly maintained for a tourist area. It should reflect whose names are on the stars, who have worked hard to earn it. Maybe they should block it off and charge a small fee to walk around and take pictures and have some concession stands. That way they can use the money to keep it clean and smelling decent. Or when they get a star they need to pay a maintenance fee to keep up the area.
  • We had a premier king room. Very nice room with a comfy bed. I love the shower because the temperature was great and lot’s of water! We had lunch in the buffet restaurant it was great lots and lots of food. Too much to choose! Also, we had dinner in the hotels' Steakhouse. Really great food but it is a bit expensive just good to know before you walk in. The food and waiters are the best!
