"Enjoyable but some need for improvement."
Overall, I would say this hotel is beautiful. It IS old, so if you prefer very modern hotels, this is not for you. I personally loved the "old Hollywood" feel. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the shower was huge! The closet was also very spacious. We did not have a full length mirror though, so my friend and I had to keep going out to the mirror […] by the elevator which was a little annoying. The room service pricing is very deceiving, it said our breakfast would be $22 each, which is expensive enough. But it some how ended up being $70 when it reached our room. We also were forced to pay $39 per day valet parking, as there are no other overnight parking options in the immediate area. If you are a guest of a hotel, paying as much as you do per night, there should be no reason for you to have to pay that much for parking. The pool is definitely the biggest draw for the hotel, the pool staff are VERY attentive, and the pool beds are great! We had a lot of fun there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything was great about the hotel. Location, cleanliness, ammenities, etc. However, even though I was warned when checking in of the renovations, it still ruined my good night sleep. I enjoy the ability to sleep-in when away in a nice hotel like this, but having that racket really put a stain on an otherwise great experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We expected much more from a hotel at this price point. Only 1 elevator was working, parking was $36/day, pool food is horrible and pricey, room smelled like mildew and construction was loud. Location was about the only good thing this hotel had to offer. DO NOT BRING KIDS/TEENS here, too many drunks at pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classic and Convenient"
We stayed here to be close to the shuttle for a Hollywood Bowl concert, however if you're into the touristy side of "stargazing" the Walk of Fame, historic theaters, wishing you were invited to the Oscars, staying in a Hollywood "classic" hotel, this is the right place too. The Hollywood and Highland mall across the street was fun. Were placed in a […] quiet, renovated room on the 3rd floor, which was perfect for us. For those desiring peace and quiet, booking a poolside cabana room on "Pool Party Night" would quickly turn this place into a Disney park "Tower of Terror" Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"High cost for a motel stay"
I do not understand how the Roosevelt Hotel has 4 stars. The room felt like a motel. There were old brown rings on the table and scuff marks on every possible surface in the room. Everything just seemed old and unkept. You do NOT get what you pay for at this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Roosevelt is one of the most accommodating hotels. Great location, great atmosphere, and great staff. Well worth the price!! The staff treats you like royalty and always remembers who you are. They even were wonderful when I needed medical assistance. They helped me get a prescription refill when I really needed it. They need a new doctor on call […] because it took three days to get it called in but it wasn't the Roosevelt Hotels fault. They helped me get what was needed no matter how long it took. Even though renovations were going on during my stay, the staff made sure the construction never interfered or disturbed our stay. I would recommend them any day of the week.

I was overly excited to stay at this hotel and was excited as well I got a good deal with hotels.com . But when I went to our room it was on the first floor waaaaayyy in the back and in the back in the parking lot basically, it was also pretty loud all night. I'm sad because I really love the history I just like because I got the room through a deal […] website they put us in the room probably nobody would want, or rarely gets booked. But u would go back and try to request a better room . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Too many drunk people-- great place if you want to feel like you're on spring break in Fort Lauderdale. Hallways and lobby are dark and uninviting. Comfortable beds but definitely overpriced. Stay at a hilton garden inn for less.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"AWESOME BIRTHDAY STAY"
Decided to live large for my birthday & this hotel is the place for a perfect combo of classy & sassy! The management had chocolate covered fruits & wonderfully yummy cheeses waiting in the room as a pre~birthday gift. Very nice... They had planned pool parties, as we'll as other adult activities. The hotel restaurant & staff we're so lovely. I just […] love hospitable people that, at least, appear to enjoy what they do. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Something everyone should experience"
Lot's of style and history. The newly renovated rooms are great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very nice time. Convenient location. Staff was very friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very cool for 20 somethings"
The hotel is old but very cool. Lots of activities for bar hoppers, but not really family friendly. Pros: on Hollywood Blvd., close to attractions (touristy stuff). Walking distance to CVS, LA Fitness, Shopping, Food. Cons: The rooms and bathrooms are a bit small and dark, and its noisy on the weekend until about 2 am.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great renovation to an iconic hotel."
This hotel earns very high style points, is located in the heart of Hollywood and has been renovated to compete with the newest hotels. My family and I stayed at a total of three hotels during our week in CA and we all agreed that the Roosevelt was our favorite hotel of the three.Genuine Expedia guest review
Location is in the heart of Hollywood. Everything was walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"small rooms/no free wifi/small bathroom/no breakfa"
there is nothing hotel that can be appreciated except that is is on walk of the fame road.They dont give even complimentary sugar for tea in the room.One can take a much better hotel in such rates elsewhere and take a taxi to walk of the fame visit.They dont provide free breakfast and wifi.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at this hotel for one night for a quick business trip. Our rooms were "complimentary" upgraded upon check-in to the recently renovated Cabana rooms. We checked in at 9pm and only used the hotel to sleep. The seemed like a nice gesture until we tried to go to bed. The cabana rooms surround the pool/bar/club area and on this Friday night, they […] have a DJ and loud music. The noise made it impossible to sleep in silence. The rooms are nicely appointed, the beds are IKEA-like and the pillows are flat as can be unfortunately. The location is great if tou want to be close to the "action" of Hollywood. I would stay again but next time request a room in the quieter and more refined tower. Save the cabana rooms for the partying twenty year olds. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Definitely not top of it's class"
This is a very popular hotel right in the middle of Hollywood BLvd. That's of course, the good news and the bad news. when we checked in, there was a young woman in the check in area wearing a bathing suit with her butt hanging out the back. I would say there is a pretty good mix of guests who stay here, but I've been twice, and it would appear the […] class of people who stay here leave a lot to be desired. the room was nice, but the bathroom was miniscule. had to close the door to get to the toilet paper holder. The minibar was well stocked. We went to the Hollywood Bowl for a concert and walked back to the hotel. DEFINITELY, not the best idea. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"right in the middle of hollywood"
My husband & I had a nice time.I think $5 for a cup of coffee in the room was a bit much though.The bathroom could have better lighting,it was not easy getting ready for a night out in such a dark bathroom.Also,the glass shower could be longer to prevent the entire bathroom from getting wet.It's all good because you are in the center of everything Hollywood.We […] took walks up and down the boulevard just taking in the local life and saw much more when we took the hop on & off bus to go farther around town.We had a great first experience in LA & would love to come back.

"Major Check-In problems"
My Fiancé and I booked this hotel around 2PM. The Check-In was 3PM. We arrived at the Roosevelt at 5PM. Our hotel was not ready, and still being cleaned (No problem, things like this happen). They offered us 2 drink vouchers, to hang out by the pool, and reassured the both of us that the room would be ready in 10 minutes, and would diligently notify […] us by cell, as soon as it was ready. We initially were not worried, and felt in good hands, especially since Roosevelt comes with such high esteem. We waited near the pool which was crowded and looked like fun, unfortunately our bathing suits were locked up with the rest of our luggage, so we figured we would just wait until they called us. A half in hour passed and we decided to use our drink tickets at the pool (just like the hotel attendant advised, only when we went to buy our drinks, we learned that the vouchers would not cover any of the pool menu drinks...We ended up buying our selves happy hour margaritas in the lobby since they were only $5. (Opting to save the vouchers for a real cocktail. Long story short- room was not even ready until 7:30PM! The hotel service clerk NEVER even called us. By the time we finally got to the room, I had to rush to get ready for our night out. We were only staying at the Roosevelt for one night, and we didn't even get to enjoy it. Rory, the manager apologized and insisted he would be able to give us a later checkout (he never did!) The valet lost our car keys for a good 20 minutes... ughh Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for out of town Hollywood Bowl shows"
Love the location as far as getting to shows at the Hollywood Bowl, or if you want to walk up and down the Walk of Fame and see all those touristy spots. Downside, you are paying for the location! Cocktails are close to $20 a pop and the room rates aren't cheap. But I'll definitely stay there again and plan accordingly!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Terrible bathrooms, worn out sheets over all it needs updateGenuine Expedia guest review
"Party Hotel - room deception"
Every night was very noisy because of the drinking and yelling by the pool, and this was during the week not the weekend. If you book a room online the cabana room doesn't face the courtyard or pool as described on the site. The hotel keys had to be rekeyed twice everyday and that was annoying after 3 days. Also be prepared not to be able to use the […] pool or lobby because they book the hotel to outside businesses so they are off limits during these times. Couldn't walk out the front door one day so the hotel had guests walking out a side door because of a outside function that was using the lobby area, but the hotel was in a very convenient location. Will I stay there again? I would not, I am going back to the Shutters in Santa Monica. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would not stay there again. To expensive for what you get. Room was small, restroom was small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We felt as if we were in the twilight zone. Everyone was in swimsuits and intoxicated beyond belief at 3 pm on a Saturday afternoon. Was difficult to use elevator when people were throwing up in 1 out of the 2 elevators. Hotel hallway smelled like cigarettes and weed. Our room was beyond small, old and dirty. Carpet in room was old and dirty. Overall […] won't be making that mistake again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Historic hotel. Beautiful decor. Great service. Feel like a movie star atmosphere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay at this hotel was very good. It is the best place to stay for the convenience of seeing the stars walk of fame and the Grauman Chinese theater. it is ultra modern but located right across the street form these attractions. The parking cost is a little steep but I guess it comes with the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall a good hotel in a good location"
Disappointed that the hotel staff seemed to lack knowledge about public transport - in particular the metro, one of the stations of which is very close to the hotel and which has quite extensive coverage of LA. The walls of the room were a little thin I suspect as I did hear some noise from nearby. Transport from the airport was suboptimal as the "super […] shuttle" was several times the cost of what the metro would have been and it took a long time for the minivan to arrive at the hotel as I was the last person to be dropped off.

"Good place to experience Hollywood"
If you want to see Hollywood this is a great place to stay! The location for that is perfect. Famous places on Hollywood Blvd are in walking distance or outside the view of the hotel rooms, like the view we had. The hotel is nice, modern, stylish. Good bar, and pool. The rooms are a little smaller then others I have stayed but only because its a older […] hotel. I would stay at the Roosevelt again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Poor check in and check out"
We arrived to our hotel at 6am and asked whether we could have an early check in. The receptionist told us that it would not be a problem as there are plenty of available rooms, but at that time the system was down due to the time of day and that we needed to wait half an hour, which was no problem. However, when the receptionist called us over it was […] a different guy and he told us that the only rooms available were the poolside rooms which was cost us to upgrade. This was very different to what we were previously told. We were tired from our flight so decided to upgrade anyway. When we got to our room it smelled of cigarette smoke and we had to ask to change rooms. By the time we got to our room it was time for breakfast and it became pointless for us to ask (and pay for an upgraded room) for an early check in. When we checked out the following day the receptionist told us that our bill would be an extra $90. When we asked her why she told us that we had been using the minibar which we categorically had not done. We explained that we did not use the minibar she told it she would look into it and not charge us. However we have been charged which is outrageous becuase we have other expenses that need paying. We have spoke to the hotel and they keep on diverting us to other people and have been giving us excuses such as 'it is normal to charge for use of the minibar and then give a refund if nothing is taken'. We feel like we have been robbed and taken advantage of. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice staff, but I wouldn t recommend it"
The Rooms are surty, the bathroom is very small and you cannot even find a place to store your tooth brush.Genuine Expedia guest review
switched rooms twice. In order to get a nice room I had to deal with the noise coming from the poolside bar. The quiet room made Red Roof look like the 4 Seasons (really yucky) I paid for the upgrade so I was VERY disappointed. The staff was nice, but hard to rate this any better since I didn't get much sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not worth the money"
Over priced for what you get. Staff very friendly but the rooms are out dated and need to be renovated. Elevator button did not work on our floor to go down, had to go up before we could go down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was nothing better then arriving, smooth check-in, up to my room, and lounging in the very comfortable bed. The pool was fantastic. Tropicana Bar is a must. The service was immpecable. The food was delicious. It was a very positive experience!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was over priced and small and be certain that at 9 am a construction team will be your alarm. You're paying for the pool area, so with that said make sure to check the weather tho the pool is heated, it's not that fun at 60 degrees otherwise the staff there are allll very nice and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
