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!

We recently booked a staycation at the Roosevelt. The Marilyn Monroe suite has always been my favorite little getaway (we live in LA/valley) We have stayed here a handful of times, but our last experience is our favorite to date. The minute we arrived, we were greeted by Mark. He went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and started the day off great with his amazing attitude and bubbly personality. He was kind enough to give us a small tour on the way to our room. Out of all the times we have stayed at the HR, this was my favorite time - all due to Mark and his eagerness to go above and beyond. The love he has for his job at The HR shows. Read less

The history here is interesting and the building is beautiful. I booked in part due to pool and it rained so we never used, but the pool area wasn't quite as grand as it looks in the pictures. The rooms were clean and nice, but keep in mind that it's a historic property and the rooms are tiny. We had 3 adults and the beds were really too small for… Read more

The rooms were clean and nice, but keep in mind that it's a historic property and the rooms are tiny. We had 3 adults and the beds were really too small for two adult friends to share comfortably. The service wasn't exactly 5 star, but if you were patient you got what you needed. The location absolutely can't be beat and the burger restaurant in the building was great. Read less

What a beautiful hotel. So much history here but what made our experience even more wonderful was the Night Shift Manager, Bill.

My family traveled to Southern CA over the Thanksgiving holiday. One of our stops was two nights at the Hollywood Roosevelt. Although during the pandemic the Hollywood area is not the same with most attractions and movie theaters closed - the Roosevelt was all that we could have asked for. This historic hotel just radiates the glamor of Hollywood. We especially enjoyed time relaxing by the palm encircled pool. Truly the highlight of the stay was one of the evenings where my daughter and I were taking some pictures around the hotel. A wonderful security guard Garik took the time to notice our interest in the hotels history and took us around the hotel pointing out different points of interest and sharing some of the lore from the hotel. Garik - thank you for taking the time to really make the stay special for us. Its clear the pride you take in the property and its patrons. Read less
