Neighbourhood
Hollywood
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.

Stayed here New Years 2019, as we had a party to go to up in Hollywood Hills. My favorite spot in all of LA to stay. Not pretentious and very accommodating. It looks like a regular house and kind of small from the outside, but the inside is huge and can be a bit confusing at

"You have to play bunk-bed politics a little bit if you want a bottom bunk."
