Right in the heart of Hollywood in the City of Angels, there can be few pieces of prime real estate as ideal as this for an LA holiday. Hollywood Roosevelt stands opposite iconic landmarks like the TCL Chinese Theatre and occupies a stretch of the famous Hollywood Star Walk of Fame reserved for the greats, not least Michael Jackson. And if outside the hotel is a reassuring mix of souvenir shops, classic diners and movie-star impersonators, inside these walls there’s something of a modern Hollywood revival taking place.
The history of Hollywood Roosevelt
Holidaying at Hollywood Roosevelt is like walking onto your own movie set where the catering just happens to be world-class. Since its heyday in the roaring twenties, the Roosevelt has served as a playground for silver-screen luminaries from Clark Gable to Marilyn Monroe, and also lays claim to being the birthplace of the Academy Awards. Located in Hollywood’s main hub, the hotel’s rooftop pool, nightclub and destination-dining venues all ooze Tinseltown glamour, while the luxury interiors of the 300 rooms complete this one-of-a-kind guest experience.
Dining at Hollywood Roosevelt
As the brainchild of acclaimed Los Angeles designer Dodd Mitchell, interior spaces at Hotel Roosevelt are at once reminiscent of its glitzy past and allegiant to a new spin on contemporary luxury. Accommodations comprise 60 cabana style rooms with private terraces & pool views, and 240 luxurious rooms affording scenic views of the Hollywood hills. The dining and nightlife at this legendary hotel make it one of world travel’s most exclusive ports of call. To mention just two examples of the eclectic F&B on offer, The Spare Room recalls a latter-day prohibition-era speakeasy, complete with vintage bowling lanes plus great cocktails and comfort food, while 25 Degrees offers a stylish take on a 1950s burger joint; all-American dining at its best. And for even more cultural clout, check out the rather special swimming pool. Where else can you find an underwater mural by Mr ‘Bigger Splash’ himself, David Hockney?
