Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel Review

Think hip bachelor pad when considering the Roosevelt. Poolside cabana rooms have dark-wood furnishings and mirrored walls; rooms in the main building have contemporary platform beds. Although one of Hollywood's oldest hotels, a renovation and several hot nightspots have breathed new life into this historic spot. Lobby and poolside socializing is nonstop most weekends. 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. A Metro stop is one block away.

Tinseltown Hotspot
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.
