Since its 1927 opening, the Hollywood Roosevelt has been an exemplar of Old Hollywood elegance and excitement, from bespoke cocktails and vintage bowling lanes to the Tropicana Bar overlooking David Hockney’s million dollar swimming pool. The historic tower has just undergone a multi million dollar renovation by famed design firm Yabu Pushelberg. Rooms include hardwood floors, local art, and rainfall showers.
- Fresh and well-maintained hotel (especially considering its age) - Very cool decor in the main areas and rooms are well-appointed - Very nice staff - Pool is nice (although it can be crowded during the day, and has a 'bouncer' stationed at the entrance - this is needed given the popularity, but is a little much)
- The first room I stayed in was small, had a view of nothing but the rooftop A/C units, and had incredibly noisy ventilation system. The very polite front desk staff moved me to a different (and much nicer) room upon request - $10 bottles of water in the room. Come on guys, a complimentary bottle of water won't kill the margins. - 'Hotel-branded' flip flops for sale at $20 instead of the inexpensive complimentary slippers that are normally available at hotels of this level
The decor and friendly staff, the 24hr diner and the pool party.
The lift was close by and was a little noisy early hours of the morning.
The service and room were phenomenal
Everything. Joe at front desk was sooo nice
The rain!! Booo
Location, concierge was nice, and the pool was fabulous
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location, very close to many tourist attractions. Great restaurants and bars inside hotel. Very cool atmosphere
Very hard to sleep in when staying by the pool. Lots of noise every morning from both the hallway and the pool. Hallways smell like weed. Even though we knew we had to pay for parking, $36 a night is a bit extreme
The location ws great!
The room selection was fulfilled. I have been staying at the hotel for almost 15 years.
Fan Coil Unite was noisy.
Very close to amenities and entertainment relating to my stay.
Construction and hammering started very early in the morning so I never slept well. With jet lag on top of it, I came home totally exhausted when this was to be a relaxing few holiday days. Also, my window looked out onto the roof of 2nd floor and workmen could peer into my window. As a result I had to keep my curtains closed at all times. I did not get to enjoy the daylight. Room was very small and not altogether clean - dirty carpet and automan. Certainly not at all what I was expecting from a superior room. Overall not a great stay.
The staff was friendly, attentive and available for all our needs.
Had problems with lock system on door. Maintanance man came, removed complete door handle and then disappeared. After an hour waiting we needed to go out and security were most unhelpful but finally came and stood by door so we could leave room as there was no way we could lock it.
Great value hotel in a great location
The location was great. The room was a little small, but had charm. We were comfortable there.
Central location in the Hollywood area. Beautiful interiors from lobby to restaurant and inviting exterior areas around the pool and outside bar. Excellent and fast service all over. One night when we had a little plumbing problem : ) in our toilet, the janitor fixed it within 10 minutes. Could definitely book this hotel at my next visit to LA.
I got a free upgrade to a suite.
The low light in the foyer was ridiculous
