Hollywood Travel Guide
Experience the Best of the West Coast
Located at the epicenter of Hollywood’s hustle and bustle, Loews Hollywood Hotel is surrounded by Tinseltown’s top attractions, dining and nightlife destinations. As the West Coast’s most glamorous hamlet, Hollywood offers a bit of everything: star sightings, historic theatres, hip bars and respected music venues.
As the birthplace of American cinema, Hollywood has come to be synonymous with the film industry and all of its fanfare and star power. As film producers moved west early in the 20th Century, they settle on a spot between the Pacific Ocean and the rolling green hills to the west: Hollywood. By the 1920s, the area was an established stronghold of American film and celebrity culture. In the 1940s and 1950s, television studios opened in the area, further propelling Hollywood into the limelight. In the past three decades, the area has served as a breeding ground for new music and continued to hold a place in film and celebrity culture, and new construction projects along Hollywood Boulevard have ushered in a new era of glitz and glamour.
Modern Hollywood blends the bright lights of show business with under-the-radar attractions around every corner, and our luxury hotel is right in the heart of the action. Loews Hollywood Hotel is located at the Hollywood and Highland Center, which includes the Dolby Theatre, Grauman’s Theatre, 75 shops and multiple dining and drinking venues. Our hotel places you within minutes of art museums, music venues, world-famous theatres and other cultural attractions, along with pro and college sports venues and some of Southern California’s best shopping.
