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!

Special Experience staying in this historic hotel. We stayed for 1 night when we arrived in LA for a very long vacation. The room with double beds had a great view of the Chinese Theatre. The Tropicana Poolside bar and grill was both delicious and an experience of its own. Staff was EXTREMELY professional and catered to our every wish. Hotel was indeed historic and iconic. Highly recommend the experience. We will be back and make the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel a tradition every time we visit LA. Read less

Lovely staff treated me and my daughter better than family during our stay. I highly recommend the first floor poolside cabana room. Yes it’s loud, but the loudness is music playing so we both had no problem falling asleep. Thank you for a memorable stay!

My family of four stayed here for a long weekend. We upgraded to a suite that had a king bed and a pull-out sofa bed in the other room. I am so glad we did! The suite gave us enough breathing room and had a fantastic view! With two tall teens we’d have been tripping all over each other if we’d stayed in the double room.

My family of four stayed here for a long weekend. We upgraded to a suite that had a king bed and a pull-out sofa bed in the other room. I am so glad we did! The suite gave us enough breathing room and had a fantastic view! With two tall teens we’d have been tripping all over each other if we’d stayed in the double room. Rocco the bellhop was the best! He was helpful, kind and he knew so much history about this iconic hotel. The people at check-in were welcoming, as were the employees at the pool (which was so warm!). 25 degrees (the casual restaurant) had excellent cocktails, milk shakes, and food. (No one was very friendly there either time we went, but we didn’t care too much about that.) Because we were here for a show at the Hollywood Bowl, the location is the best. We walked to the bowl and just about everywhere else. Read less

A stay at the Hollywood Roosevelt is like stepping back in time to the glory days of Hollywood. It is a layered history with all modern provisions. The atmosphere is superb and the staff are friendly & attentive. The guest rooms are first class in their presentation & provisions. The dinning options are excellent & a culinary treat. Don't choose the Hollywood Roosevelt as somewhere to stay, choose it as an experience. There is so much to explore and absorb. Take the time to soak in its beautifully preserved & maintained history, architecture & culture. An unforgettable experience! Read less

Mark greeted us with a smile and his eagerness to make us feel welcome was immediately enchanting. He offered help for us to find entertainment and made anything we asked seem like his pleasure to oblige. I truly felt we had been friends for years and would come back because of his kindness.

Mark greeted us with a smile and his eagerness to make us feel welcome was immediately enchanting. He offered help for us to find entertainment and made anything we asked seem like his pleasure to oblige. I truly felt we had been friends for years and would come back because of his kindness. This was just the start to our wonderful stay. Everyone was so kind! The room was specifically chosen for our needs traveling with a child and very clean and beautiful decor. The pool experience could not be beat and we truly loved the atmosphere which was made perfect with Phia’s smile who made my daughter feel like a princess. We could not have had a better stay and we cannot wait to return! Read less
