Hollywood Roosevelt

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!

The bed was very comfy and the bathrooms spotless. Centrally located just across the road from the Hop on Hop of bus stop. The only disappointing thing was they charge for the Wi-fi, no complimentary water in the rooms (a small bottle cost 6 dollars!!!) and no coffee making in the room. Overall I would recommend staying here. Read less

Whilst I didn’t not enjoy our stay here I can’t say I loved it. Hotel has a nice ambience and the old fashioned feel (maybe a little too old fashioned for my taste) very dark and doesn’t feel very welcoming. Pool area was the highlight, this was beautiful and staff were great around the pool area. Room was not very comfortable. Bed was comfortable but it ended there. Bathroom was the absolute worst part, needs a good clean tiles are filthy and I didn’t enjoy stepping into this room. Way too small and no room for any toiletries. Only 1 elevator working which was a massive inconvenience. Almost taking up to 10 minutes to access the elevator to get up or down. Walking up the 8 flights of stairs would have been quicker! 4 nights seemed too long at this hotel and I was happy to be checking out. Overall ok-ish stay but not sure I would return. Location was fantastic. Read less

Four-night stay with three of us in a two queen room. Our biggest issue during our stay was we were sad to discover it's *hotel policy* to only allow two lounge chairs by the pool per room, so if you are staying with double occupancy, keep that in mind. If the pool were completely packed, I would understand, but here is where I was penalized by honesty. We only tried to use the pool one time, too. Worst case scenario you could lie and say you are in separate rooms because, while they ask if you are guests, there is no mechanism in place to ensure it. The cons: 1. After check-in, we were informed we had to use the service elevator (there's only one) during our stay. We were delighted to discover on day 3 that ONE of the guests elevators wasn't broken but spending $300+ per night to ride with service staff wasn't what we had in mind. 2. There is no in-room coffee. A carafe was $20 delivered. 3. There are no top sheets, so if you are a germ freak you better pray to your Gods that they strip the duvets after the turnover of each and every room. 4. The floor lamp in our room was broken. 5. We stood in water in our shower (tub) day after day. 6. The TV reception had several connectivity freezes throughout our stay. The pros: 1. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and warm nd did a good job. However, there is a thick layer of dust on the bathroom fixtures so leave your white gloves at home. 2. Quite possibly some of the best, flattest hotel (feather?) pillows I've ever slept on. 3. At least two on-site restaurants you can enjoy. We ate at both but found the service a little "stuffy" and inattentive at Public Kitchen + Bar. 4. Beautiful property overall. In summary, it's doubtful I would stay here again. The location is outstanding but there were enough service issues to drown out any geographic privileges. Read less

Just got back from our first trip in LA, in which we had an amazing stay in the Hollywood Roosevelt. It is a fantastic location for sightseeing yet you can hide away from the hustle of bustle of the Boulevard by chilling out by the enormous pool, we were there on a Sunday, when they have a live DJ which gave a really great vibe to the Tropicana pool/bar. Both food and service at the pool were excellent, especially from our Waitresses Kelly and Steph :) Would definitely recommend the Shrimp Tacos- delicious! Thanks again for a great stay! Read less

Liked the pool area, pool was heated. Thought the lobby was a bit dark, not to our taste maybe needed updating. There are only two elevators serving 12 floors, for 4 days one of these was out, leading to a longer wait. The service elevator was made available, but was also in use by staff. Overall it was a good place to stay. Read less
