- What's Included
I honestly found my stay at the Hollywood Roosevelt underwhelming for the price. When you pay $400+ a night for this hotel, I think the ante is upted. The best thing this hotel has going for it is the location and historic value; it's located across the street from the Chinese Theatre and on Hollywood Boulevard. The pool seems to be a hotspot in Hollywood, but I can't understand why. It's a rectangular pool surrounded by hotel rooms with a small bar on the side. I booked a "Cabana" style room, but it didn't include a view of the pool; instead, my view was of apartments across the street. Parking is $46.50 a night. Wifii is not free. I asked for the wifii code at the front desk, and the receptionist said it doesn't come included with the room but she'd give me a complimentary pass just this time. Interesting... for $400+ a night, the room should come with free wifii. I expected a grandiose lobby, maybe even the ability to access the rooftop to enjoy the potential of a great view of Holloywood Boulevard and that famous "Hollywood Roosevelt" sign. Neither was true. Why not put a bar at the top of this hotel and capitalize on the view? The lobby is dark and Spanish style, which I guess has been restored from the hotel's early days. I get how this is a historic site, but the hotel needs to capitalize on that and make its guests feel like they are getting something for their dollar besides the location. The rooms were well decorated with mid-century modern touches, although I found damage to our headboard in our room that needs to be fixed. I couldn't help but notice as I was going to sleep at night. I like to give five stars to hotels when I see value. I don't mind paying the price when I feel like I'm getting my money's worth. I unfortunately didn't see it in the Roosevelt.
Tons of ambiance here with history at every turn. Lit like it probably was when it opened for a great atmosphere. The pool bar is another matter as the chaises are reserved in advance and there is little seating otherwise. The bar is overly expensive and the weak margaritas they served were not worth the $20.00 fee plus the automatically added service fee (tip).
The location was amazing the main reason we booked.The interior is very dark and brooding.The view from the bedroom was a highlight but the room itself disappointing.The four poster bed was eye-catching but it took up all the space in the room.Not the usual American size room.Would only recommend for the location.Not good value for money.
The Roosevelt needs to decide how rock and roll it can be at these prices. We got a great deal by booking months ahead but at rack rate my review would have been different. it's a beautiful, historic hotel and is in the most brilliant location, right opposite the Chinese Theatre etc. Our room was comfortable and quiet but tiny and we had a De Luxe Room. How small is a standard? it was for three of us and it was hilariously cramped. The mini bar is one of the most expensive I have seen anywhere in the world, ever. It may be the most expensive. Its outrageous. When we arrived the pool was full of inebriated valley girls in tiny swimsuits, arguing and swearing. It was about 6.30pm. Another day our corridor just literally stank of dope. The smell lingered for three hours. California has recently relaxed its drug laws but it's unsettling and it's a no smoking hotel so it leaves you feeling a bit vulnerable, especially in a multi-storey hotel. The hotel is full of history, it's very dark (odd) and it's very stylish. Most of the staff are very friendly. The guests were a mix of incredibly rude and really lovely. The pool is divine but I was too scared to use it once the bar opened after my experience on the first day. In the mornings - it's stunning, spotless and gorgeous. So a mixed bag. I wouldn't stay there again.
I travel to LA frequently for business and have stayed here the last few times and will continue to do so. You can enjoy a classic Hollywood experience for little more than you would pay for a budget chain hotel. From the minute you arrive to the moment you leave, you will be warmly attended by any staff member you encounter from valet, check in, restaurant staff, even the housekeeping crew will smile and acknowledge you as you walk by. I lived in Hollywood during my 20s and got to know the hotels history well. Before you visit, do some research on the role this hotel has played in Hollywood's history. It will really add to your experience. The rooms are clean and cozy, each of the restaurants is great, it's close to everything and quieter than you would expect for a hotel in the middle of Tinseltown. My only regret is that I'm usually too busy working during my stay to take more of it in. I look forward to going back.
