The design of the station was created by three different firms. The designer of the station is Sheila Klein, and the constructor of the station is CannonDesign. The lighting, material and mechanical design are from HLB Lighting Design.
The construction of the station were to be made of equipments given by the Metro, which according to HLB, made it challenging. The lighting pillars of the station was to resemble like a flower, and it was carefully sized to match well with the smooth, curved ceiling which 'resembled a belly'. Sheila Klein named the architecture of the station, "Underground Girl".

The under construction K Line will connect to this station via the future northern extension from the Expo/Crenshaw station (current terminus) which would offer connections to West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Crenshaw District, Leimert Park, Miracle Mile, City of Inglewood, and LAX. It will also allow connections to the E Line, D Line, and C Line as well as the LAX Automated People Mover.
The station is located in Hollywood at the intersection between two major roads, Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue. Hollywood/Highland is beneath the shopping center of the same name and the Dolby Theatre. Pacific Electric Red Car interurban trains stopped on the surface in the early 1900s; this marked the junction of the Hollywood Line with the San Fernando Valley lines to Owensmouth and San Fernando. Due to terrorism concerns, the station is closed on the day of the Academy Awards starting with the 74th Academy Awards on March 24, 2002. The one day station closure has remained in effect every year ever since except for the 93rd Academy Awards in 2021 in which that year's ceremony was held at Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in California.
