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!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Got to see the fun of Hollywood blvd just walking out the main door. Enjoyed the pool area too. Staff was great, very pleasant and enthusiastic to help. The only negative is that someone on our non smoking floor didn’t follow the rules and that’s all we could smell for our stay. The desk said they would have… Read more

The only negative is that someone on our non smoking floor didn’t follow the rules and that’s all we could smell for our stay. The desk said they would have moved us, but we didn’t think to ask. We spent most of our visit touring all day anyway. Would stay there again. Read less

We stayed in the Hollywood Roosevelt for 3 nights in June and enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The front desk staff were really hit and miss- some were super friendly and helpful and some were quite blunt and short with you. Our room was very small and although this is common in big US cities, I was disappointed given the price we had paid. The pool… Read more

Location is great as you are right in the heart of Hollywood Boulevard and Ubers are able to drive right into the hotel for pick up/drop off. Read less

Nice location and a young and pretty hip vibe for the party crowd. Less a place for families unless you are very open minded to cannabis or need to show your kids a different world. The solid smelll of Joints being smoked by the pool while the kids are playing is a bit over the top. Maybe they should limit drug intake to certain times or areas… Read more
Nice location and a young and pretty hip vibe for the party crowd. Less a place for families unless you are very open minded to cannabis or need to show your kids a different world. The solid smelll of Joints being smoked by the pool while the kids are playing is a bit over the top. Maybe they should limit drug intake to certain times or areas just a little bit even though its pretty rock'n'roll - or maybe just consider promoting more smell free drugs like heroine.😀 Closing down more than half the pool for the whole day of July 4th without announcing it to the guests was really terrible for us as a family and made us leave early from the hotel. We even asked the staff on the 3rd if there wood be problems getting a sun chair on the 4th and they did not mention the private party. Rooms are somewhat outdated but stylish and air conditioning noisy as having Def Leppard giving a concert in the room. When we checked out early due to the pool closure we received both excuses and got out of our next night booking for free. No cancellation fee and a free valet parking. The staff at the reception were nice and very understanding without being able to do much about their the decision made by hotel management. All in all. If you are ready to party and smoke some weed - go there. If you are a family with kids you should probably go somewhere else. Read less

I loved my short stay at the Roosevelt! A coworker of mine had stayed 6 months prior and couldn't stop talking about it. So as soon as I could manage it, I booked a stay myself. Nicole was a gem upon check-in! She placed me in a spectacular room near the pool area where I could sit outside and enjoy the rest of my evening. The lobby area is… Read more

Nicole was a gem upon check-in! She placed me in a spectacular room near the pool area where I could sit outside and enjoy the rest of my evening. The lobby area is something out of Game of Thrones, and the Hollywood stars are right outside! I will definitely be staying here again and hope to have more than one evening to enjoy all the amenities they offer. Read less

We stayed in this hotel which we moved from another, as we preferred to be central in Hollywood. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. There was sadly no tea/coffee facilities in the room and the bathroom was very small. View from room was also not appealing! Staff were sometimes rude and obnoxious! Overall a good stay, but wouldn’t rush… Read more
