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!

I haven't throughly enjoyed a stay like this in a long time. The property is fantastic and is so iconic with plenty of history.

Amazing time at the Roosevelt Hollywood. Great staff and very helpful especially check in staff Molly. She was wonderful and so down to earth. The room was spectacular just enough space for my husband and I to enjoy. Amazing views from the 11th floor.

The Hotel is very well maintained and the staff attentive. You can feel the history around it. The food was reasonably priced and the rooms were accommodating (Margiela products!!!) . A memorable stay I would gladly do again.

All I can say is, FANTASTIC. The staff is wonderful, the drinks at the Tropicana Cafe are vacation worthy, the vibe at the pool is great, Alana was an incredible host. The service is impeccable. Can’t wait to check in to The Hollywood Roosevelt again! A true gem! For a second, I forgot that we were in a pandemic.

I normally don't write reviews, but my husband and I were super impressed with our weekend here. The staff, the vibe, the COVID safety measures....all top-notch. THE ROOMS: We got a loft suite, and it's the perfect size. Stylish, clean, tasteful. Top shelf toiletries. Only drawback: The bathrooms are TINY. THE FOOD: Limited menu across the hotel, but everything was tasty. Room service is available. In common spaces you can scan a QR code at your table or lounger and they'll bring you anything. THE POOL: Such a scene! Pool is a perfect temperature. Lots of fun lounge music. So much people-watching. SERVICE AND STAFF: The best. Everything went so smoothly. Quick check in, room service was prompt. Everyone was super nice. We always felt welcome. TWO BIG SHOUT-OUTS: - Our concierge Mollie for having a chilled bottle of champagne in our room when we arrived. - The two pool hostesses are legit amazing. They have the hardest job at the hotel and they do it with a smile. They deserve ALL the praise. TIPS: - Don't book anything smaller than a Loft Suite if you're staying in the tower. - They'll text you a link to do a pre check in. Use it to buy discounted credits for food and late check out with it. - You can't reserve a lounger at the pool and space is limited, so get there early. There’s also a three hour time limit. HOWEVER....there are seating areas in the far end by the bocce ball court that are open to anyone, and it was legit better than anything closer to the pool. Read less
