And we were there

Great to see where the Oscars are awarded and to walk where so many famous stars have trod. Tour was very informative.

I've seen both a live comedian and a Cirque du Soleil show at the Dolby Theatre and it was an excellent venue for both. All the seats have excellent views of the stage and the acoustics are great. I prefer the Orchestra section for the best viewing experience, but I suspect some of the box seats also have nice views.

We did a tour of the theatre, the theatre is interesting but more interesting is the history around the oscars! If you enjoy watching the oscars it's amazing to see the stage, where they sit etc, if your not into the oscars it would be interesting but not a must see!

We visited the Dolby Theatre for a look at its beautiful construction on our trip to Hollywood. It is beautiful and clean in contrast to Hollywood Blvd.

I was very keen to take a tour of the Dolby theatre (originally called the Kodak theatre) where the Oscars take place. The tour was about $21 but worth every penny. I took the 12:30 pm tour and it started right on time. We went backstage to see how the action unfolds, walked the red carpet that starts walk, saw... More

If you go to LA, you must visit the Dolby Theatre. This is the center of Hollywood blvd. You will find lots of shopping and restaurants, as well as, the walk of fame and the famous Hollywood sign. You have to pay to park but its worth it. There will be people trying to stop you and sell you things... More

Went on a tour of the Dolby Theater. Do yourself a favor and save the $22 per person. Tour was 30 minutes, Tour Guide could not hide his boredom or disdain for us tourists. We basically walked through the Lobby, went into the balcony of the theater, and saw an Oscar behind glass. Our tour guide was not the least... More

I've never watched the oscars but will be making sure I do after this informative and inspiring tour. Our tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable, plus she answered all our questions with both professionalism and a personal touch which really made us feel part of this beautiful theatre. Looking forward to tuning in next Feb now! Would definitely recommend... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
