Historical Traveller Reviews of Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
fantastic hotelfrom jetset05
Used to be nice - what has happened?????from tm1978
When we arrived at our room on the 11th Floor, it was amazing, it was everything we could have possibly wanted. It was large with a king-sized bed. We had an excellent view of Hollywood Blvd too. The room had modern furnishings and was very clean. Everything you can imagine is in close proximity and Universal is a 10 min drive (at most). Everything you need is in this area, which is why this hotel is so appealing. The hotel is now 2 years older, could it really have changed that much? I think I'll just have to keep looking for somewhere new.... Shame.
Not as nice as it once wasfrom Samsie
Staff did try overall to make our stay pleasant and the porters were helpful when we checked out. There is a nice restaurant a block away called Hamburger Hamlet which is well worth calling into. We did not use room service. Its main saving grace is its proximity to Hollywood and attractions like Universal studios (the metro at Hollywood and Highland costs little and is easy to use) but if and when we return to LA we will stay in a different area.
Fantastic!! Just gives an undescribable feeling.from A TripAdvisor Member
Everywhere you turned was something else to take a picture of. We had my wife, my 18 year old son, my 6 year old twins and everyone enjoyed their stay. I would stay there every time and would recommend it to anyone who likes history or the feeling of being apart of something special.
Forget it!from A TripAdvisor Member
Main entrance to the hotel is locked during private functions leaving guests to wander aimlessly to find a way out. It is hard to see where the much lauded refurbishment has taken place - but certainly not in the cabana rooms. This encounter nearly spoiled our holiday - thank God for the numerous Best Westerns we stayed at thereafter, the rooms of even the worst one of which was infinitely better than our Roosevelt room. Its only saving grace is its proximity to Hollywood Bvld.

s sucks!from Dutchbairn
The Roosevelt is a wonderful place. Clean, yes clean, and extremely helpful staff. Anytime that I had to speak to the reception, they were very courteous. This was our first experience of valet parking - also very friendly people. The gift shop, although opening/closing at any time, was stocked with what we needed so as not to dip into the minbar so often and the man in charge there was always happy to chat.
Extremely comfortable beds (we had a tower room) and a more-than adequate bathroom (I have been in 5 stars where the bathroom is smaller). As for the neighborhood - yes it is a bit sleazy but IT IS HOLLYWOOD!!!! You get the same street hassle in any major city. The movies are right across the street (including the must-see Chinese theatre), the tacky museums are also fun to look at (see Hollywood Entertainment Museum, great people there and good value) and the souvenir shops stock a better quality of junk than anywhere else (unlike Venice Beach where every souvenir place is identical) with no hassle to buy stuff, the 101 is very close by and a block behind the Roosevelt is Sunset Boulevard (definitely worth a look). Furthermore, if you want to leave the car behind, then the Metro (across the street) will get you to many places & back for a few dollars (Downtown LA, Chinatown, Universal City, etc). If you are visiting the Hollywood Bowl, the shuttle buses are right across the street at the Highland shopping centre, so you have no tranport worries (we saw REM during our stay). Only irritation we had was the Hi-Speed Internet access required bringing a laptop (not via the TV), although the wonderful internet Cafe a block away called Cyber Java made up for that shortcoming. Also met 2 celebs while staying, and experienced the media circus surrounding the deaths of Johnny Cash and John Ritter - their stars on the walk of fame were close by. Basically, my sympathies to those who had a bad experience, but to those who expected the high society and high class that comes with the 5 star chains, then you should have booked your holiday 70 years ago and you do not have my sympathy at all. Well done all you guys at the Hollywood Roosevelt from a very satisifed customer!!!!!
Roosevelt Hotel is the WORST EVER!!! Yuck!from A TripAdvisor Member
I ordered a grilled sandwich and got full on stomach sickness and had to actually take that Immodium AD the rest of the weekend. Thank you Roosevelt !! YUCK!
What a horrible place, stay away!
PLEASE read this and DO NOT book Roosevelt!from A TripAdvisor Member
The decorations inside were nice but they refused to refund the difference for no reason. At night i wanted to order from room service but there was no menu in the roo. It took 45 minutes to get through to room service and finally we gave up. The hotel does not even have a full-time concierge. When we asked the front desk about this comedy club they said it was in an area with lots of taxi's and restaurants.
When we got there not only was that area dead, the comdey club people laughed at us when we told them what the hotel had told us. There were no restaurants within 8 blocks!
Whatever you do PLEASE DO NOT stay at this hell hole. It was such a ridiculously aweful place I actually took time to write this.
Top Local Tips for Los Angeles
Other things nearby Universal Studios is just a few minutes away by car. Great Wireless Internet Connection in rooms.
Shelley's Diner Cheap alternative for meals and they shot Milliondollar Baby here.
For great, hip, fun tapas to die for! Try Cobras & Matadors on Beverly. Buy a bottle of wine next door and bring it in for a great dinner!
