Hollywood, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

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!

There is no place I'd rather stay then the Hollywood Roosevelt. I've been staying there 25 years now. The history of the hotel is magical. But the true jewels are the staff. As a woman traveling with a teen safety is so important. The level of security is wonderful. You walk in from the craziness of Hollywood Blvd and you are in a sanctuary. At check in Emily saw it was my birthday the day before. We didn't even speak about it just how happy we were to be back in our home away from home. Returning from dinner we found a delicious piece of Rasberry chocolate mouse cake and a hand written birthday card. My daughter was taking pictures in the Marilyn mirror and Cody from security actually recognized us from a previous stay and remembered our dog. After telling us a bit of history he offered to give us a tour. Now I'd consider myself obsessed with this hotel and thought I knew everything. Cody was an absolute expert. Where I knew half a story he knew the rest. The level of enthusiasm he has for the history of the building is amazing. He truly loves his job and it shows. Emily and Cody made a birthday I was not thrilled about so special and I and my daughter will never forget it. We can't wait to see them again next month! Read less

My husband and I went to the lobby and wanted to go up the famous steps and may husband has to use a cane. A worker maybe Simon I think he said his name is. He assisted him to the mirror and I want to say that it made his day. He was such a gentleman and we will be coming back. Thank you for your hospitality.

This is my favorite hotel in all of LA. So many amazing venues and places within it. And such a legendary history. The vibe is just the coolest. I mean it even has a bar with a bowling alley hidden in it. And Billy gave us an amazing behind the scenes tour that made us feel like Hollywood royalty. Just the best place.

Wonderful, historic hotel on Hollywood Blvd. Staying here was part of our 50th wedding anniversary celebration, and the staff had a sweet, congratulatory note and nice bottle of wine waiting for us. The cabana room was comfortable and the hotel vibe very Hollywood.

Didn’t stay but Cody was awesome and gave us a history lesson with a tour ! He was nice to let us experience a little of old Hollywood ! It was amazing to hear the first ever Oscar ceremony was held there . I couldn’t believe I was standing in the same hallway as Shirley temple .
