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!

This is a special recognition of the Hollywood Roosevelt service team. In particular, the valets, front desk staff and lobby bar wait staff -- all were top notch. Very comfortable room, great location, and interesting hotel with character.

The location is absolutely perfect and cannot be beat! First off, the STAFF is amazing and attentive! Upon arrival, Jay upgraded our room +WiFi. I traveled with my 14-year-old, so WiFi was a must! I was blown away by the view we got from room #1115. We were able to see the Hollywood sign - Yes (((The Hollywood sign))) and the TLC Chinese Theater… Read more
The location is absolutely perfect and cannot be beat! First off, the STAFF is amazing and attentive! Upon arrival, Jay upgraded our room +WiFi. I traveled with my 14-year-old, so WiFi was a must! I was blown away by the view we got from room #1115. We were able to see the Hollywood sign - Yes (((The Hollywood sign))) and the TLC Chinese Theater and the Walk of Fame from our window; good looking out, Jay! You can literally walk out the ground floor entrance onto the famous part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame; Vin Deisel's star is outside the hotel, and Kevin Hart's Star is right across the street! This location has everything you need, too; Target, Marshall's, CVS, Walgreens, In & Out all within a 5-minute walk. The property itself is marvelous, super clean, and glamorous. The rooms, pool, courtyard, restaurants, and bars were excellent - there are many bars and restaurants on-premises. You don't even need to leave the property. Everyone on the staff was super friendly and helpful. The Hollywood Roosevelt This is my new go-to place in LA. This place is impressive, stay here! Read less

So. My daughter and I took a road trip around California. We booked at the Roosevelt not realizing all of the history we were about to take in, thanks to Bill! We simply asked him about dinner recommendations and then received the most amazing tour throughout the hotel. People like Bill don’t come along very often. He takes total pride in his job and delivered an unforgettable experience to us that day. We learned so much and appreciate his willingness to talk about the place he loves so much. We will definitely be back to stay at this gorgeous property filled with history and their attention to detail staff. Thank u Bill, you’re the best! Read less

The hotel was great to start but got even better when we bumped into Bill. A quick conversation of him asking if we needed help getting to our room turned into his awesome advice on where to get food and his knowledge about the hotel. He went out of his way to share the history behind the hotel and also to show us around. Bill was super friendly… Read more

The Hollywood Roosevelt is a historic hotel right in the heart of Hollywood. The Chinese Theater, the Dolby Theater and shopping are right across the street. Even with all the traffic on Hollywood Blvd, the hotel was very quiet. The interior is charming, well maintained and secure. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. But in particular, the valet and bell staff made checking in and out so simple and pleasant. There was never a worry about what to do with our car and how we would move all our luggage. Be sure and tip valet and bell generously for all their hard work. Our room was on the 5th floor at the back. We had three large windows with a sweeping view of Los Angeles. While booking the room we chose the offer to upgrade to a Double Deluxe and are very glad we did. The room had ample space and a large bathroom with an unusually large shower. The room had hardwood floors with a large rug. The beds had an interesting wood frame support and were very comfortable. Watch your shins around the corners of the beds! In the room the hotel had available for purchase water in glass (!) bottles, snacks, hard and soft drinks and even very useful electronics. Prices were very reasonable. Room service from a top end restaurant downstairs was available. We had dinner in the restaurant and was well worth the price as a treat to ourselves. For breakfast we chose the café at the front of the hotel. Good selection of items, delicious and open all the time. In summary, we could not have made a better choice for a hotel because of location, charm, staff and value. Read less
