Is Hollywood a nice area to stay?
Hollywood is a great place to stay in Los Angeles. It’s home to some of the most iconic landmarks in the city, such as the Hollywood Sign and Universal Studios. There are many attractions to explore, from celebrity impersonators to clubs and hotels for late-night fun. You can also find reminders of movie legends both past and present, as well as a vibrant, contemporary urban district.
Is it better to stay in downtown LA or Hollywood?
Downtown LA is a more classically big city with lots of highrises, lofts, hip new restaurants, and historic architecture. It also has better access to public transport than Hollywood does. If you’re looking for a more local vibe with a bit more edge, then downtown LA might be the right choice for you.
How long should I stay in Hollywood?
If you’re looking for the full Hollywood experience, then you should plan to stay at least two or three days. This will give you enough time to explore all of the attractions that Hollywood has to offer, such as the Hollywood Walk of Fame and theme parks. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive experience, then five to seven days is ideal. This will allow you to explore not only Hollywood but also other parts of Los Angeles and nearby attractions like San Francisco.
