Hollywood, Los Angeles

The hotel

The Roosevelt is Hollywood's only historic hotel still in operation today. It hosted the first ever Academy Awards in 1929 and has seen throngs of people - including celebrities galore - pass through its doors. The hotel has even been featured in a few films and Shirley Temple took her first tap-dancing lesson on the tiled stairway! As if that's not enough, Montgomery Clift and Marilyn Monroe are reputed to haunt the joint - proof this place is too good to leave!

We first stayed here on our honeymoon in 2000 and we have stayed every year since when in LA. The hotel oozes old Hollywood charm and always has a great vibe. Quite pricey to stay there, but it is the home of the first Oscars and you are surrounded by all things Hollywood glam :)

The Hollywood Roosevelt delivers impeccable service which is the reason I return as a local. The staff is courteous, friendly and accommodating. Stop by and be wowed by Mario from Rosy’s Cafe, Umberto from the Lobby Bar, Ty at the Check in desk and the Valet staff. It’s always reassuring to see the same smiling faces that deliver consistent and exemplary service. If you haven’t experienced the Hollywood Roosevelt, I urge you stop in. The Roosevelt is beautiful and you can’t help but feel like you been transported back to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Read less

We really enjoyed our recent three day stay at The Hollywood Roosevelt hotel. The Cabana room poolside was way bigger than we thought it would be with a classic twist in design of modern comfort mixed with historic features. The king size bed was super comfortable with a large private sun bed outside too. Looking around the history of the hotel was absolutely fascinating to learn about Marilyn Monroe staying there and her mirror on the wall. The pool service with Jessica was very nice she was able to bring us nice food and drinks to out poolside lounger and this made our sunny relax time easy. We can’t wait to stay here again. The ambiance, safety, professional friendly staff, location and five star comfort and service made this stay out of this world. Read less

Details: Three days and four nights in a poolside cabana. Check-in: Sharp. It was clearly a busy Saturday for the crew, however I was met at the entry by David, who carried my bags to reception.

Details: Three days and four nights in a poolside cabana. Check-in: Sharp. It was clearly a busy Saturday for the crew, however I was met at the entry by David, who carried my bags to reception. I had previously checked-in online, so my time at the desk was brief. Room card was handed out, and I was off to my cabana. Overall, a well done greeting. (4/5) Room: Location, location, location. The pool at this hotel is center of activity, and my cabana was literally within steps of the deep end. I had a small bed outside that was protected by foliage from the crowds and could take a quick swim in the AM, have breakfast at Ruby’s, and sneak back to my room without my wallet, phone, or keys. Very, very relaxing. Bed was perfect, bathroom spotless, and housekeeping invisible and efficient. Only small quibble here was that the minibar didn’t get restocked during my stay. (4.5/5) Service: Before I weigh in on the overall service, I’d like to point out a few individuals who made my stay memorable. Dylan (poolside), Erin (Tropicana Bar), and my brother Austin (Lobby Bar... and he's not my real brother, it's used as a term of affection) were spectacular. Sergio (Rosy’s cafe) was kind enough to give me a tour of the rooftop and Spare Room along with tidbits about the history of the locale; for a connoisseur of historic hotels this was one of the most memorable experiences of my seventeen years of travel. Aside from this the service was…. you get the picture. The perfect balance between professionalism, efficiency, and casual approachability. Even the security crew were friendly! Very fitting for Los Angeles in general. (5/5) Location: The most historic hotel on the Boulevard, with easy access to the Chinese, Dolby, Pantages, and El Capitan theaters. Entry is a bit cloistered on a side street to keep out the riff-raff. Perfect combination of being accessible to the main attractions and sheltered from reality. (5/5) Cost: Not cheap but not exorbitant, a little over 500$ for a premier poolside room. The history of the hotel and city of residence needs to be taken into account here (4/5). Check-out: Mostly completed online. Staff at departure helped me with my luggage; I took an Uber to LAX. Receipt mailed to me just a few hours after I left. (4/5) Summary: This was easily one of the most memorable hotel experiences in my 17 years of travel. Hay-Adams in D.C., Ritz Paris, Gritti Palace in Venice, the Adlon in Berlin, and now I can add the Hollywood Roosevelt. The property itself (that lobby!) was barely one step below breathtaking, and they were shooting a movie (“I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” a Whitney Houston biopic) there during my last day. I saw bits of the Asian Fashion show, as well as having interesting conversations with countless people at the various bars and restaurants. My first visit to Los Angeles as a tourist was truly complete with a stay here. Thanks to everyone at the hotel for an indelible experience and I’m looking forward to staying again. Read less
