Hollywood Roosevelt

Hollywood, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

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'm a huge fan of the Hollywood Roosevelt. I've stayed a couple times, and it's the hotel I recommend when friends or family are visiting.

I'm a huge fan of the Hollywood Roosevelt. I've stayed a couple times, and it's the hotel I recommend when friends or family are visiting. The hotel very much has the classic Hollywood glamour vibe, in a very earned/ actual way. David Hockney painted the bottom of the pool, Marilyn Monroe lived there for a period of time, the hotel hosted the 1st Academy Awards, etc. Not that the Hotel Roosevelt relies solely on its legacy. The rooms are great, and the service is lovely. It's nice to book a night in one of the cabana rooms, even if just to hang out by the palm-tree enclaved pool for the day. On the weekends, they often have events as well; when we recently stayed, there was morning yoga on the bridge and a vintage pop-up in the garden. Lastly, and importantly, I like the food at the Roosevelt. You can eat poolside, or have a chill dinner outside at the Rosy Cafe; the lobby bar is dope, and dinner at The Barish is great. Read less

Stayed here for 4 nights last week, had my apple AirPods stolen out of the front pocket of my bag by the cleaner, make sure you lock up all your valuables in the safe, in fact don’t leave anything out because the cleaner will nick it, probably even a packet of crisps the thieves.
