Beverly Grove, Hollywood
FOR FAMILIES

Beverly Grove

Beverly Grove, also more simply called “The Grove,” is on the westside of Los Angeles, and is actually referred to sometimes as Mid-City. It’s nestled right between Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, making it one of the best neighborhoods to stay in Hollywood.

Did you know that Hollywood started as just a single adobe hut on some land outside of Los Angeles back in 1853? Hollywood was actually a thriving agricultural community before it became synonymous with the American film industry!

It wasn’t until the early 1900s that movie makers began flocking to Hollywood, to escape Thomas Edison’s Motion Picture Patents Company in New Jersey.

These patents usually forced filmmakers to stop making movies because they were getting sued. Whereas out in California, it was harder to enforce these patents and given the ideal weather, La-La-Land became home to Hollywood.

Hollywood quickly became one of the hottest tickets for places to live and to visit, for American citizens and for international tourists alike.

From the renowned Whitley Heights where the majority of the starlets live, to the famous celebrity-owned bars, restaurants, and hotels on the Sunset Strip, Hollywood is brimming with some of the coolest places to stay ever.

Hollywood’s 5 Best Neighborhoods to Stay in

Heading to Tinseltown but not sure where to lay your head down at night after a long day of celebrity scouting? We’ve got you covered. Here are the five best neighborhoods to stay in Hollywood. Are you ready? Because it’s showtime!

#1 Whitley Heights – Where to Stay in Hollywood for the First Time

Whitley Heights is also known as “The Hill.” It’s a residential neighborhood in the Hollywood hills and is famous for being where the actors and other people involved in the film industry reside.

Actually, Whitley Heights was Hollywood’s first National Historic District, as actors and actresses purchased houses there all back in the early 1900s. We’re talking about celebrities like Charlie Chaplin and Bette Davis here! The stars were drawn to this rather secluded hillside residential neighborhood.

Along with the relative isolation, it also has an easy commute to Warner Brothers, RKO Pictures, Paramount, and Chaplin Studios. Even the stars like a short commute! Personally, this is my area of choice when I come to Hollywood, its peaceful vibe is a great remedy to the buzzing streets downtown.

Whitley Heights, Hollywood

If you decide to stay in Whitley Heights be prepared to spend a pretty penny and be surrounded by true star power! The sheer density of famous people makes Whitley Heights one of the best areas to stay in Hollywood.

If you’re wondering where to stay in Hollywood for the first time or even, where to stay in Hollywood for one night only, we couldn’t recommend Whitley Heights more.

Make sure to note that there are no Hollywood Accommodation options nestled directly in between to the star’s homes—sorry folks. The Whitley Heights hotels and hostels are all on the outskirts of this star-studded residential neighborhood. Close enough to count, obviously!

Orange Drive Hostel | Best Hostel in Whitley Heights

The Orange Drive Hostel is just steps away from all the Hollywood action and sites, but it is still a slice of peace and quiet. We love the free breakfast which includes all you can eat waffles and pancakes! Can you believe it? There are different room types, from dorms to private rooms available, all of which are relatively budget-friendly.

There is also laundry facilities, a shared communal kitchen, free lockers, and a patio BBQ area. I’ve often stayed here when I’m looking for somewhere affordable with all the benefits of the Hollywood Hills.
