I like the Hollywood & Highland Center because the parking is relatively cheap (especially with validation) and convenient for seeing other Hollywood sites such as Grauman's Chinese Theater, the Roosevelt Hotel and the El Capitan Theater. The fourth floor of the Center is a favorite snapshot site for taking pictures of the Hollywood Sign. Other than that, a shopping mall is a shopping mall and there's no reason to go there for shopping if you have malls at home.

This theater now looks amazing after being remodeled for the Cirque de Soleil IRIS show. The entrance, when not decorated for special occasions, is actually quite unassuming and easy to miss. It is not as cool as what you saw on TV but still, it is quite an experience. The photos and posters showcased in the second floor was interesting to look at. The bar looks really cool but the food and drinks selection left much more to be desired.

This is a huge shopping/entertainment center along Hollywood Blvd. It's nice to walk through, and from the back of the second level, you can get a decent shot of the Hollywood sign. The floors are marked with mosaic tiled quotes from anonymous Hollywood stars.Recommended for:Local Culture

The famous Hollywood & Highland Center, where the stars on Hollywood Blvd. meet the hand and feet prints in front of the Chinese Theater. Get Pictures of the Hollywood Sign, Plan a tourist-filled excursion, shop and eat, or walk down Hollywood Blvd. to take in the heart of Hollywood!

This is a huge, open-air shopping center – it actually encompasses most of the block and technically includes the Kodak Theater and Grauman’s Chinese theater (in fact, you can park for all 3 in the center’s underground parking lots – 2 hours free with shop or restaurant validation and 4 hours with movie theater validation). The centerpiece of the complex is a massive three-story courtyard inspired by the Babylon scene from the D.W. Griffith film Intolerance. It’s multi-level design offers some great views of the Hollywood sign and the Hollywood skyline. It has 75 shops, great restaurants including a Hard Rock Café, clubs, movie theaters, a Lucky Strike Lanes bowling alley, and a Metro Station. It wouldn’t be a trip to Hollywood without taking a gander at the many individuals costumed as your favorite movie characters that haunt the Boulevard in front of the Center… but beware: taking a photo usually brings a request for a tip.
StarLine Tours, the oldest and largest sightseeing tour bus company offering Hollywood and Los Angeles celebrity home tours, is also headquartered and departs from here. Their jump-on/jump-off tour buses offer a great way to see many of LA’s sites (from Hollywood to downtown to Santa Monica) without having to deal with traffic and parking, while listening to an informative narrated tour.
Best time to check out Hollywood & Highland in the summer: Tuesday Wine & Jazz summer concert series from 7-9pm. The event is free (watch from the courtyard, or grab an open air table at one of the restaurants a few levels up), or a $10 donation to Project Angel food gets you 2 glasses of wine and an appetizer box to enjoy while you watch.

A great place for all out of town visitors to check out. Parking is easy and they do validate, $2 for 2 hours. Max of $10.
At H&H you can get a beautiful picture of the Hollywood sign. There are also lots of shops (Sephora, Guess, Victoria's Secret) and restaurants (Johnny Rockets, French Creperie, CPK). It is also home to the Dolby theater formerly known as Kodak theater where the Oscars are held every year. H&H is also a redline subway stop. The redline goes from downtown LA all the way to north hollywood.
Within a five minute walking distance from H&H is Graumann's Chinese Theater, El Capitan Theater, The hollywood museum, Madam Toussauds and Mel's Drive in.
Fantastic location with tons to do!

I do like the variety of unique restaurants and all the major stores at this center. The decor is also very cool, with a touch of Thai (giant elephant structures), but also very modern. Kids love playing in the water pit (streams of water flow out from different areas at random times). The only down side is it's in the heart of West Hollywood, so you have a lot of traffic to get there and parking in the structure can sometimes be hard to find. Make sure to get parking validation when you make a purchase though so the parking rate is much more manageable ($2 for 2 or 3 hours with validation).

I'm here every Tuesday for a dance class (down the street). I park in this center's parking lot too.
I like this place because it's very Hollywood. The pretty staircase leading to the Theater and when I come out I see Jimmy Kimmel's studio.
It has a lot of shopping - Victoria's Secret, Forever 21, Sephora, etc. A lot of levels to go up... be careful getting lost.
Good dessert places - Beard Papa's, Crumbs, Kelly's Coffee, etc.
Parking: $2 for 4 hours (but ONLY with validation)
It's pretty and you can see a lot from the top of the center.
There is a club there, but never been because it's 18+. I see a lot of young people there at night.
Overall, nice tourist spot.

This place is tourist central. The stores are largely chain and nothing to make trip special to go see. The complex itself is very clean and parking is good (I don't remember the price, but it's not bad). You can easily take the Metro here, which I recommend!
