- What's Included
I do love the Roosevelt. Across from Groumans Chinese Theater(I will always call it that) The Roosevelt is small, not particularly updated, and always dark lights, but always fun. Great bar. Great, small pool, and you never know who might show up. I visit for the TCM Film Festival when it has a lot going on, and convenient to the movie houses.Can sometimes be pricey, not luxury, but very vintage Hollywood
As I've already visited the Roosevelt’s pool during other trips to LA, this time I wanted to try the hotel itself.Booked several weeks in advance my three-nights stay and was pretty excited about that because of all the good things I’ve heard about it, even if I’m not a fan of the Hollywood location.Made my reservation through the Preferred Hotels & Resorts website but at the check-in I wasn't recognized as an iPrefer member so wasn't given a password for the free wifi (had to ask later for it) and had no complimentary upgrade as advertised. I’ve told this when I’ve been asked by email from the hotel’s Director of Guest Relations if everything was ok with my stay, but got no answer. As you may know, this is an historic building located in the heart of Hollywood, which may be a good or a not-so-good thing. I usually like to stay in other neighborhoods when in LA as I find this part of the city to be particularly shabby and overly touristy. The Roosevelt went through some major renovation works recently and I must say that the renovated rooms are very nicely appointed even if the Queen Bed rooms are super, super tiny. Fun fact: our closet was almost as big as the bathroom. That means that we could store all of our luggage in it, but on the other side the lack of space in the bathroom was evident. Given the tiny size of the room I also found annoying the amount of merchandising everywhere, from flip flops to tees to caps, etc. I understand the will of selling the hotel merchandise but you can't fill a small room with items to sell: I need space for my own things when traveling!The pool was nice as I remembered and it’s always a pleasure to spend some time there, even if a couple of guys working there are so full of themselves and looked more interested in talking with their friends instead of taking care of the guests. We also visited the Library Bar one night (with high expectations) and while the guy working there was super nice and prepared, the bar itself was not provided with all the ingredients for preparing a Vieux Carré cocktail. No big deal of course, but weird for what it’s supposed to be one of the best bars in town.Would I come back to The Roosevelt? Probably not. Maybe I’ll just keep going to their lovely pool, but in terms of hospitality, location, rooms and service.. well, there are better hotels in Los Angeles.
My girlfriend booked a cabana room out by the pool this weekend for her birthday and we were all excited until we actually got in the room. It was in a quiet corner facing some bushes. Not near the pool at all :( Her friend Corey is bellman there, after walking us up to the room and seeing how disappointed we were, he went back down(without us asking) and got us a different room down on the first floor overlooking the pool. It was exactly what she wanted! He was so incredibly sweet...and HOT lol! He even brought us back a couple drink tickets! Thanks Corey! You saved our weekend!!
This is one of my favorite hotels I've ever stayed in. Service was excellent , architecture was beautiful and the history was interesting. Rooms were very modern, room service was hot and promptly brought to our room. I highly recommend getting something as simple as the grilled cheese with tomato sauce. It truly felt like a home away from home. Thank you
I stayed at the Hollywood Roosevelt for one night in June of 2017. This historic hotel is located right in Hollywood across from the Chinese Theater amongst other landmarks and on the Walk of Fame (albeit, the Walk of Fame goes in for many blocks). The hotel is definitely a throwback. The hallways and rooms have a sort of 1950’s cruise ship type of feel (not that I’ve been on a 1950’s cruise ship, but I’d imagine it would be similar). The rooms are small as is typical in historic hotels. I have no idea how they compare to other hotels in the Hollywood or Los Angeles area, though. The lobby and bar area is particularly beautiful, with Spanish-style architecture throughout. Everything is rather dark inside, though. I enjoyed having a drink at the bar. I also tried the onsite burger joint for a burger and a spiked milkshake, both of which were good. Check-in was smooth and the person who checked me in was very friendly and helpful. I wanted to stop by the pool as I was walking around the hotel, but was stopped by a guy who looked at me suspiciously, asked what I was doing, and then told me only guests were allowed at the pool. I told him I was a guest and then he just said, “well, we don’t allow outside food or drink in anyway” (I had a coffee in my hand). Okay, whatever. Good that they have someone ensuring the pool is reserved for guests (I also noticed the hotel has security by its doors), but the interaction was weird. Overall the Roosevelt was a neat place to stay for a night. It does a nice job of maintaining the “old school” Hollywood feel which is an experience unto itself. I probably wouldn’t stay again only because I don’t see myself coming back to Hollywood (was interesting to see once, but that’s it) and the hotel vibe isn’t really my thing, but I did enjoy the one night I was there.
