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!

The view from our room was fine - we could see some of the Boulevard but couldn't hear too much noise from it. (so we were happy!) The bathroom was small but it had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and polite. The pool area is gorgeous and the pool bar was busy but they had good drinks so it was all good! The only reason I didn't give this hotel 5 stars is because in the room I found there wasn't a hairdryer and also there wasn't a mirror near a table for me to do make-up etc. So I had to put all my make up things on the floor by the lovely big mirror right next to the front door. A little awkward but hey... Other than that, a lovely stay. Thanks guys! Read less

This hotel is full of old Hollywood charm and history. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The pool is a lovely oasis in the heart of downtown. Great proximity to tourist attractions. The room was beautifully designed, spacious. And very comfortable.

The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is the place to be when staying in Hollywood. Inside is filled with old Hollywood décor and the lobby, restaurant and bar areas are often frequented by wealthy businessmen or Hollywood Z-listers. It is located directly opposite the world famous 'Chinese Theatre' on Hollywood Boulevard (where the host the latest film premieres) and is amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday Hollywood life. We had a great time at this hotel but we must say we was a little disappointed in the standard of services to price paid ratio. We drove to the Roosevelt and used the valet service at the hotel to park our car, be very wary if you're doing this for long stays as valet is $40 per night. We found the valet guys to be rude and un-organised; nobody seemed to know what was going on and two valet drivers almost got into an argument about whose turn it was to park the car – not a great welcome to a hotel which we paid $1,600 for 5 nights). The lady at the check-in desk was very helpful and explained to us what was happening in the area and in the hotel itself. We checked into our room and were surprised at how small it was (literally a bed, long table attached to the wall, fridge, bathroom – with walk in shower and toilet, built in wardrobe and balcony). We knew the hotel was in a central location but didn't realise the rooms would be this small. Also, there were absolutely no amenities in our room whatsoever (no toiletries, mini bar, water etc). The beds were comfortable and the room was completely sound-proof so you couldn't hear what was happening by the pool or on the boulevard (unless you opened your balcony door). There was a safe in the room and a TV with most of the American channels. The pool area was absolutely divine and one of the best I have seen in America. We enjoyed this for 4 out of the 5 days we stayed however, they have pool parties on Sundays which (unless you pay a considerable amount for a table) you cannot really enjoy as all the sun-loungers are taken. Bear this in mind when booking this hotel as you may expect to at least enjoy the pool if you're spending over $200 a night to stay here. There were 2 restaurants within the hotel (one in the main lobby and one located on the boulevard) – both were absolutely divine and the food tasted great!) Distances: Hollywood Boulevard – 30 seconds Universal Studios – 10 min taxi Dodgers Stadium – 25-30 min taxi (usually traffic on game days) Santa Monica – 25 min taxi Venice Beach – 30 min taxi Malibu – 35 min taxi Rodeo Drive – 25 min taxi Beverly Hills – 20 min taxi If you've visited Hollywood before, you will know that homelessness is a problem here, so be wary when walking the streets late at night and try to opt for an Uber. Overall we had a fab stay but would probably choose somewhere different on our next visit to Hollywood. Instagram: @journeywithuss Read less

Stayed for three nights following a cruise. Reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. We arrived early and it was a bonus that our room was ready on arrival. Room was average size on third floor- what was strange was that the windows had been opaqued so could not see out! Nice comfortable bed, large tv and good size walk-in shower. Iron and ironing board but no in room tea/coffee making facilities but complimentary coffee was available in the lobby in the mornings. The hotel is located right on Hollywood Boulevard opposite the Chinese Theatre so perfect for exploring. Metro station also just across the road. Plenty of bars and eating places close by. We found a nice IHOP just a couple of blocks back from the hotel which was perfect for breakfast. The hotel lobby is the original 1920s and total unique. Think that Disney modelled their Terror Towers ride on this hotel. Nice swimming pool area. Read less

Another great stay at The Roosevelt Hotel in the heart of Hollywood. I don't get tired of living in this wonderful hotel during my holidays. The location is perfect, the room is very spacious and very pleasant. I feel comfortable like at home. The staff is always polite, helpful and very friendly. At the pool which is heated, it's very pleasant to sunbathe around a good cocktail. The atmosphere is perfect and the music is lively. I want to thank especially Isabella BROWN. She always takes care of me and makes me feel like at home. She's super friendly, very professional, very competent, very comfortable and always a special attention to spoil me. It gives me everytime I come to Los Angeles, the urge to come back here. Thanks again to you for all the attentions that you reserved for me. See you soon, in few months :) Read less
