“The Hollywood Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a great way to round out your Hollywood experience. The ambiance of the hotel is excellent, but a few niggling details prevent this from attaining the heights it rightly should. I spent the better part of a week in a poolside cabana room and found a few minor issues. Room service, house cleaning, the front desk, and bar service were superb, but the room itself was simply adequate. A few issues - a couple of burned out lightbulbs, a mirror not properly anchored to the wall, and a dearth of comfortable seating in the living area took away from what was otherwise a great room. At this price point, such details should not be overlooked. Poolside rooms also have to contend with loud near-nightly parties. If you are looking for a restful environment, there are better hotels, but for a place to let loose, you won't go far wrong with a poolside cabana at the Hollywood Roosevelt.

We try to stay at this hotel whenever we're in LA. The hotel is rich with history and being a movie history buff, the Roosevelt is my kind of place. Not only did it host the first Oscars, it's also rumored to be haunted by both Marilyn Monroe and Montgomery Clift.

The hotel ownership has changed hands and the decor has definitely changed. The Roosevelt has its own signature now and the hallways are much brighter as are the rooms. I'm not sure yet how I feel about this - the dark had a certain special-ness to it.

Needless to say, the hotel is still great and we'll continue to come here.

I just returned after an extended weekend stay here. First off, let me say I was there to party, so my review is viewed through the prism of someone looking for the ideal LA location to setup as my homebase or a partying weekend. Research led me here, and this was definitely the right choice.

I stayed in a cabana suite, and while it was pricey the room was fantastic. I intended to leave the hotel more to branch out in LA, but there were so many fun pool parties, bars and restaurants at the hotel that I ended up spending way more time at the hotel than I planned.

I expected the hotel to be modern and luxurious, but one concern I had was that this place would be a hub for pretentiousness. To my pleasant surprise that wasn't the case at all. For the most part everyone here was super cool. Right out of the gate the trip started well, as we were checked in by an alluringly beautiful girl named Jodi who was amazingly friendly and went above and beyond to make sure the room was to our needs. Throughout the weekend the staff continued to impress me. We spent a ton of time at the pool, and the staff there was very helpful as well. Some of the friends I was with were a little rude to the staff, and made unreasonable requests, and the staff still kept their cool and went way out of their way to help these people who weren't even staying at the hotel. Special thanks to Anthony from the pool who really went out of his way multiple times.

Anyway, in summary, this is probably the best party hotel in LA.

Pros:
Fantastic modern renovation to rooms.
Great friendly staff
Awesome pool scene
Good bars, restaurants
Central Location

Cons:
While inside of the hotel is free of all things touristy, if you walk out the door you will be in tourist central
If you aren't there to party, expect the hotel to be loud until 2am or so
Pricey, but worth it

Room Tip: Cabanas are the best party rooms, stay in the tower for a quieter stay.

While the event services were quite good and the wedding was fabulous, this hotel is not worth the money to stay. The historical significance is not worth it. However, if you are looking for a good meal, stop in at the Public Kitchen in the hotel. Otherwise, stay away.

Very hip and happening spot in the middle of fun and funky Hollywood Blvd. Kudos to all involved in the hotels renovation. When in Hollywood, this will be our hotel. A very caring and helpful staff. Valet parking a bit pricey.

Only stayed 1 night for a wedding, had a really great time, but will be back to stay for a weekend to take in the whole hotel, and pool parties. Haven't been to that part LA for a while, and there is so much to see and do :)
