Top 20 Hollywood, Los Angeles vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Hollywood needs no introduction, synonymous as it is with the city of Los Angeles itself. Its history as the movie capital of the world dates back to 1911, when the first motion picture was made on the west coast of the United States. These days, most of the studios have moved out, but it remains a bustling neighbourhood, with lots of shopping and nightlife options. Because of its history and famous sites like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it also attracts hordes of tourists, so even though this is a very walkable neighbourhood you'll often inevitably need to manoeuvre around groups of visitors. Traffic tends to be frustrating any time of day, but on weekends or when a big name musical act is playing at one of the nearby venues, it can turn the main roads into a parking lot. It's pretty scruffy and tacky in places too - you have been warned. West Hollywood is the more trendy part of Hollywood.
