Let’s face it—there is just no place on Earth quite like Hollywood. For decades, people have been drawn to our storybook location like moths to a flame. Yes, this is the birthplace of American cinema. But there is so much more here, starting with the famous California sunshine that really does make getting out and about easier and more enjoyable. Right next door to Loews Hollywood is the famous Hollywood & Highland. It’s a great choice for shopping, people-watching or enjoying a few games of bowling. This is also the home of the famous Dolby Theatre, which for decades was called the Kodak Theatre. You may know it as the home of the Academy Awards. When it’s not Oscar night, this venue hosts some of the best live theater and music in town. Love hoops? You’ll want to check out a Lakers game. And for hoops of an entirely different sort, try shopping for jewelry on Rodeo Drive. If modern art fascinates you, a visit to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art should be high on your list. Those who love the silver screen will want to visit the many TV and film-related sights here in Hollywood. No matter how you choose to spend your time here, we hope you’ll come back and be our guest again, and again.
