Escape to… The Hollywood Roosevelt | Hollywood, CA

There’s no Hollywood history without the Hollywood Roosevelt.

In its early years, the hotel played host to countless icons: Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, among others. It’s served as inspiration for filmmakers and creatives who have set their movies within this storybook backdrop.

In 1988, famed British painter David Hockney completed a multi-million dollar mural on the bottom of the Tropicana Pool. Both the hotel and the pool have been designated Historic-Cultural Monuments by the City’s Cultural Heritage Commission.

This hip, upscale hotel dating to 1927 sits along the Hollywood Walk of Fame and across the street from the TCL Chinese Theatre.

Chic, modern rooms and suites (some named after famous former residents such as Marilyn Monroe) come with premium bedding, flat-screen TVs, designer toiletries and Wi-Fi (fee). Upgrades offer garden or pool views, hardwood floors and/or private balconies. Room service is available 24/7.

Amenities include a fitness center and an outdoor pool with a buzzy bar scene. There’s also an exclusive cocktail lounge, a game room with 2 vintage bowling lanes, a celebrity-haunt nightclub, and a 24-hour burger joint.
