Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel Review
Think hip bachelor pad when considering the Roosevelt, which is known for its party-centric vibe in the heart of Hollywood and was once the home of the first Academy Awards. Poolside cabana rooms have wooden floors, cowskin rugs, and marble bathrooms, while rooms in the main building were refreshed in 2014 to bring out the history of the property, without skimping on modern technology; all include flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi (for a fee). Although one of Hollywood's oldest hotels, it feels fresh since several hot nightspots—such as Spare Room bowling alley and the wild variety show Beachers Madhouse—have breathed new life into this historic spot. Lobby and poolside socializing is nonstop most weekends. Original Spanish Colonial Revival details include Spanish tiles, painted ceilings, arches, and fountains that evoke early Hollywood glamour. The David Hockney–painted pool adds to the playful vibe.
On Hollywood's nightlife-centric main strip, the 1920s-built Roosevelt is undisputedly the place to mix and mingle with glitteringly beautiful people. The exclusive—sometimes snooty—vibe attracts plenty of A-list celebrities too; don't be surprised if you spot a starlet sunning herself in a neighboring cabana. Whether you want to flirt over martinis at the David Hockney-painted pool, hang out with friends at the new gaming saloon and lounge (complete with two bowling lanes), or dance the night away, the hotel caters to every mood and whim. When you're ready to retire, rooms with dark wood furnishings, mirrored walls, and blackout shades are the perfect happy ending.
