“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

First of all i need to explain that i am a really really big hater. Just see my previous reviews.
But i can NOT find one fault about this hotel.
The swimming pool is a scene, the weekends get manic in the summer. But even when the place is party popping and crazy busy the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home and feel special. One guy who has to be noted is Patrick, the guy is awesome. Always there to help you. Jarrett is also amazing. What an awesome dude. Usually in a place like this the security can be a little intimidating and overbearing- not at the Roosevelt. They are amazing. Only problem would be the door lady at the Bowling alley, she made it rather hard for me to get in. After 5 minutes of giving me grief we realized why. The most epic of all bowling alleys. What a venue.
Basically this hotel is awesome and i couldn't recommend it more.

Room Tip: If you want a party room choose one by the pool. If you want peace and quiet choose the tower

We were meant to stay here for two nights, on our bold escape from hurricanes Iselle & Julio, but ended up one night due to our airline botching our reservations.

My travel agent in Sweden had overnight booked us into the hotel and besides its location in the heart of Hollywood (literally across Mann's Chinese Theater and on the Walk of Fame), the hotel seemed nice.

I had to call in ahead to organize late night transportation from LAX and organize the baby crib and everything worked smoothly, a highly efficient concierge desk. When I had to call again (after the booking mishap), our night was cancelled at no cost, and the car rebooked. Again, very efficient.

The hotel feels ancient, having first opened in 1927, and it's currently being redecorated into a design hotel. Some of the floors (e.g. 7) feel creepy in their dark dark decor. The rooms are nice (see pics from two of them), although our suite seemed a bit smallish, but heck, for one night, who cares. The bed was comfy, we slept well, that's what matters.

However, if you stay here longer, there are a few things to consider. The bathrooms are tiny, there is no place (really) in the hotel to have breakfast (the place called 25 degrees is a bar and was smacking full when we looked in), and - most importantly - there is VERY LOUD construction going on from seven-ish in the morning. No sleep. I don't know how long that is going to last. It didn't really bother us, since we were up anyway, but if you wish to sleep in, consider a quiet floor (if it exists)

Being able to walk out of the hotel and step onto the walk of fame does have an appeal, so if Hollywood is your destination, look at this hotel.

Room Tip: View over the Hollywood boulevard or the city of LA? You choose, but be high up if you wish to see t...

Dear HansH,

As a senior contributor I want to thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It sounds as if you had quite a journey! I am glad our concierge team was able to assist in rearranging travel plans and that everything ran smoothly there after. As you mentioned, we are in the midst of a renovation and our new design takes a big step away from the dark décor you experienced. We do offer breakfast in 25 Degrees, our diner, as well as in-room (which can be delivered poolside). Thank you for your visit; we do hope to welcome you back.

Thank you,
Kevin Barnes

My family and I stayed here last month during our yearly visit to California and we were not disappointed! It was a great time overall- housekeeper Erika was so helpful and went above and beyond to accommodate my toddler's needs in order to make our stay a very enjoyable one. Clean hotel, great location...there's so many things to do nearby! I would gladly stay here again!

Near all the popular sites in Hollywood,but rooms were very depressing all black you would think that a Hollywood place would be spectacular with bright rooms? No. Are family was moved twice because the first room a fight broke out next to are room, the next we didn't have enough beds for are four piece family finally the last room suitable but too dark and dull. Beds were to low down, bathroom to small and bad decor. We thought why not go to the pool and relax, did not relax at all
The pool was crowded with drunk people, so drunk one man jumped out of there 4 story balcony in to the crowded pool, the staff did not care. Are first impression and experience of Hollywood was dirty and sleezy. However the sites were amazing. Hotel not family friendly.

Dear 187sharon,

I am sorry you felt the Roosevelt was not the appropriate place for you and your family. It sounds as if you were placed in one of our double rooms that has not been renovated quite yet. These rooms are a bit darker and slightly out dated. We are making great headway with our renovation and our designer, Yabu Pushelberg, has done an excellent job of brightening up the new design. Thank you for your visit.

Thank you,
Kevin Barnes

The Roosevelt is conveniently located on Hollywood Blvd, near a lot of the clubs and restaurants that West Hollywood has to offer. The hotel itself is not very special, the rooms are clean and look alright but are way too small considering the amount of money that you pay for them. I also thought the staff wasn't particularly friendly. If you're looking for a hip hotel in Hollywood that caters to the same crowd I would go with the W instead.

Dear Daan V,

I apologize if you felt the Roosevelt was not the best selection for you. Some of our rooms in the historic tower are still true to their 1920s blue print, but we are in the midst of a renovation which will aid in the expansion of these room types. Thank you for your visit.

Thank you,

This hotel was right within walking distance of most places I needed to go to. The back parking area and waiting area made it very comfortable and accessible if I needed to get a ride elsewhere. The service was incredible from every staff member I spoke too. Always smiling and helpful. Their team definitely goes above and beyond. I loved the atmosphere of the hotel! There were a couple parties going on while I stayed which made it fun. But at the same time when I needed to study/work in my room it was not disruptive like some places you may stay at. I stayed for a week and it was a great experience. I will definitely stay at the Hollywood Roosevelt again.
