"Overpriced and dirty"
The only good thing about the hotel is the pool. The lounge chairs were comfortable and plush. The poolside cabana we stayed in was NOT thoroughly cleaned, for example dust underneath the desk area, old restaurant menu covered in dust sticking out from underneath the bed, and a moldy shower. For the price of the room I would at the very least expect […] a spotless room. I've seen cleaner motels. We ordered room service for breakfast and dinner and the food was nothing exceptional. The toilets had an instutrial handle like you would find in a public restroom...gross. The toliet was loud when it flushed and you could hear neighbors everytime they flushed theirs. Also, we were awoken very early in the morning (5 am early) by loud knocks and yelling. We opened to find a woman, escorted by security, looking for her cell phone., she obviously had the wrong room and I'm unsure why security who was escorting her out from a different room didn't realize that before they rudely awoke us. After that incident we finally fell back asleep to be awoken again at 9 am by housekeeping knocking at the door. In my opinion that was way to early especially considering check-out time was at noon. For the price we paid for the room ($400+ for a night) this is all unacceptable. I had way higher expectations and was sadly disappointed with our stay. Needless to say I won't stay at Thompson hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Dark and Dirty"
Sorry to say, but the experience was disappointing. Hotel was very dark (poor lighting), elevators were extremely small. After watching 4 elevators stop on our floor that were going down and were completely full, we finally got on an elevator going up, in order to ride it up and back down. Tried the stairs, but they only led down to a door to the exterior […] that had an alarm and security camera monitoring it. Room was extrememly small and was dirty (trash under bed). Bathroom was disgusting with hair and other small bits of trash aLL over the floor (my wife couldn't stand it and called the front desk to have somebody come up and clean it). We picked the hotel for the location on Hollywood Blvd, but will not ever stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Bigger than my flat. Awesome!"
Order more towels at check in. You'll need extra to compensate for the poor design of the tub. Great view. Amazing bed. Wish I could move in. Walking distance to everything & Runyon Canyon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Roosevelt Hollywood"
This is my favorite hotel to stay at in Hollywood. It's a unique, well designed hotel with great energy for the younger crowd. It is exciting to stay here, awesome crowd, pool, beachers madhouse bottle service, paparazzi outside.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too crazy on sunday with outside guests"
It would be nice to have been explained to when checking in the deal with the reserved lounge chairs at the pool and tables in the restaurant. It took us a long time to figure out that as a guest we could occupy them. We also did not get to checki n until 5 pm which put a damper on our plans.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel very social atmosphere"
Thankfully I was there to hangout and party because this was the place to do it. Very swanky, fun and old school Hollywood. Accommodations aren't "luxury". If you plan on staying overnight make sure you want to hear music until 2am on Friday's and Saturday's...I really enjoyed that part :0)Genuine Expedia guest review
Hollywood hotels are a double edged sword. They seem fun and hip but because they need to have an edge, they attract a lot of people who really can't afford the rooms. This hotel is overrun with groups of men in their 20s and 30s who obviously each chipped in $50 apiece and are all staying in a room meant for 2. The rooms are small and need renovation. […] The lighting in the rooms is non existent. The valet service is friendly, but slow. The front desk is efficient but more concerned with telling you what you cannot do than providing service. This is clearly due to the fact that so many people who are there are just hanging around to go to the pool or drink. If you are looking to do that, it might be enjoyable although the Mondrian does it much better for less money. I would never stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Pros...very friendly & helpful staff! Location to Chinese theater, wax museum & tourist attractions. Lots of charm & character throughout the hotel. Cons...noisy at night. The pool area has loud music & parties until very late at night. Our room was on the 8th floor and far from the pool. Air Conditioner also very noisy. Carpeting in main areas of hotel […] need replacing. Coffee should be complimentary in your room or in the lobby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful hotel, nice rooms and good location if you want to be in the middle of the tourist section of Hollywood. However, even with my room upgrade, the walls and adjoining door are so thin taht the peopel talking in the room next to mine until 4am sounded like they were in my room. I got in late and heard voices like people were in my room or that […] the TV was on, but it was the 3 people in the room next to me. It was certainly interesting hearing what they've been up to, and their thoughts and desires, but I would have rather gone to sleep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was beautiful and location is excellent. The staff was extremely friendly. Our room was on the small side and the bathroom was tiny. Unfortunately our room was facing the spotlight that lit up the hotels sign and was shining into our room all night. Since we were there only two nights we dealt with it and closed the curtain as tight as possible. […] The only complaint I have is upon checking we not told that the pool would be closing at ten for a private party. We took our daughter to swim at 9 and they would not allow us in the pool. We asked to speak to the pool manager and he was very rude. We spoke to the front desk manager and she apologized that we were not informed and gave us a $25 credit to use in the hotel which was nice. Other then that we were satisfied with the hotel.

All was good except for a little black mold on the bathroom walls. Also the half glass wall that served as a shower curtain did NOT keep the water from soaking the bathroom floor.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Centrally located for walking"
I was surprised that wifi had to be purchased and was not aware until I already Reserved--they offered two levels to purchase wifi at $15 or $25 rate for each 24-hour period. for that alone, I will not return. The room size was disappointing as we had 2 queen beds that used 80% of the space. It was difficult to walk with more than one person present […] (we were three so we definitely pushed the limits). The beds were extremely comfortable as were the abundant down-like pillows. The hotel is very old and has been remodeled. That accounts for the small size room and small bathroom a sink with no counter space. The biggest plus is the staff--everyone was polite and helpful. I would return if wifi was included and would definitely get an extra room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great place in middle of Hollywood. DJ on weekends so pool is fun but not so relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, location, location. Not the cleanest for the price. If your asking over 300 a night it should be spotless. Parking is pricey,(35) it's a pet peeve of mine that you have to pay so much to park. Why is it you don't pay for parking at 100 a night hotels, but you do at 300 plus a night hotels???Genuine Expedia guest review
"Rooms could use some updates"
Amenities in room were excellent, but bathroom space is very limited! Hotel is historic, but old. Expect a fun party place, but not the best in luxury.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"clean room and nice staff"
The staff was great! The room was clean. We had two kids with us (10 & 11) they loves it! The only down side was the hotel threw a party on sat afternoon and you had to make reservation to go to the pool, we just went to the beach that day. We would stay again. It's close to Universal Studios.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The Roosevelt's lobby was beautiful and the staff was polite. The room was clean, but they only provided two towels and they were thin and worn out. The location was great- in the middle if everything!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Roosevelt Stay/June 2013"
My son lives in LA. I am from New Jersey. When I go out to visit, I like the Roosevelt because it is classy and luxurious. It is an oasis in the middle of the busy Hollywood cray-cray! I do not feel it is overpriced - I feel comfortable and safe there. The Roosevelt has charm.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Historic feel, very nice suites and great location"
I stayed with a friend in a suite, and it was very nice and comfortable, with a neat bathroom. The location is great, as the hotel is a short walk to many of Hollywood Boulevard's attractions. I wish we could have stayed for more than one night and explored more of what the hotel has to offer. The historic feel was enjoyable. My friend may have even […] had some supernatural encounters (I heard the hotel is supposedly haunted by Marily Monroe's ghost). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lots of history at this hotel!"
We read about how Marilyn Monroe stayed here alot before she became famous. So people say her ghost is there! Very close to attractions, across the street from the Chinese Theatre. The restaurant was great, best burgers with many choices of cheese. French toast with bananas and walnuts and choclate chip pancakes!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay in Hollywood. No need to rent a car."
This is my 2nd time visiting Hollywood. I feel like it's a party-type hotel (at least on the weekend I've stayed). If you were light sleeper, this may not be suitable for you. I can hear people talking or doing something in the next room. This hotel is located and centered of everything and it is within walking distance to Hollywood walk of fame, Dolby […] theater, Chinese theater and etc. Just want extra snacks or food. There is CVS nearby. It is also close to Subway where you can take it to Universal Studio (just one station away). Very convenient in term of location. Room is nice/clean and very bright at night if you keep a curtain/drape opened. However, once checked out and checked my credit card statement about a week later, I saw an unrecognized charge (about $8). So I had to call the hotel and got transferred to finance dept, they told me it was a bottled-water from the room's mini-bar, which I didn't even take (I bought my own waters from CVS). They agreed to refund that amount back. Quite inconvenient because they wouldn't tell you if there was any charge by the time you checked out, but in the end everything worked out. Always check your credit card statement, especially from this hotel. Look like they may have placed the sensor by the room's mini-bar area (i.e. Vegas-style hotel) so if you moved anything, you'll be automatically charged. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Historic Fun Hotel"
The Roosevelt is a beautiful old Hollywood Hotel that has been updated into a fun chic place to stay. Nice 24 hourburger place inside. Also, an elegant restaurant and a couple of nice bars. Tons of shops and theaters nearby. Always great to stay there. One thing; for people who like free breakfast or Wi-fi.... Roosevelt does not have these.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We enjoyed it and would come back, especially to use that beautiful pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Room, Terrible View"
Stayed on the 3rd floor & faced the hills, but all I could see were the AC exhaust vents when I looked out of my window. I guess this is the Roosevelt's way of FORCING you to upgrade to a poolside room for an additional $200 a NIGHT! Why do they do this? to make it easy for housekeeping to stay on lower levels? The room was good but a decent view is […] not too much to ask for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy night in Hollywood"
Been looking forward to a night in Hollywood, and the Roosevelt Hotel seemed like the idea place, given it's long history of being one of Hollywood's premier destinations. The service was great, valet very polite, but the street noise down below was too much too handle. The ghosts known to roam the halls most likely couldn't sleep either. The pool area […] was a bit sloppy. There's an open door policy on the who can roam in and out of the pool area. Not worth the money, but at least worth a try one-time to say you stayed. Rooms are tiny. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beware!!! Rooms are VERY small with NO view!!!"
Horrible room... VERY small and window looked out to agacent hotel room window. Very unsettling.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel and Location!"
Great location and very historic hotel. I would absoutely stay again. We arrived early they let us check in around 11 am. We did get the only available room so it was somewhat small. I assume if we hadn't needed to check in early we would have stayed in a larger room. Very helpful valet/bell hop. My only con is the carpet in our room was a little dingy, […] almost felt wet but it was by no means bad compared to other hotels. Couldn't get a more central location to Hollywood attractions. If I every come back to Holllywood 100% I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Our room had a view of the "HOLLYWOOD" sign and the Hotel is on the Hollywood walk of stars. Good location and good accommodations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In the Middle of Hollywood"
If you want to visit Hollywood sites, then this is a great hotel to stay in. It felt a bit weird staying there as a family, as it is clearly a place for people to party. They have three venues there for events, and the second night we were there was a big party night with Ashlee Simpson performing at the Madhouse downstairs. We could hear the people […] in our room next to us late at night, but the hotel was clean and the staff made us feel very welcome, even though we never saw any other families with kids there. On the other hand, if you're looking to relax for a few days, I would suggest somewhere on the coast away from the noise of Hollywood, and then just drive into town to see the sites.

"Once and for all"
The building is old. the A/C is loud. Valet parking charges outrageously. But they do have lux decor on the ground floor and a nice reastaurant. The location is unbeatable. I would not stay there again but would recommend those who had not tried it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location + Charm"
Fantatic staff, right in the heart of Hollywood. Historic building. Room was tiny and bathroom needed renovating but we got a great deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was very clean... Friendly staff... Restaurant and bars were excellent... Great place for a quick get away.Genuine Expedia guest review
Let me start off by saying that the front desk staff and hotel restaurant staff are excellent! However, I don't know if the cleaning staff is understaffed, but the bathroom was very dirty. When we entered our room, the bathtub was dirty and the walls near the toilet were spotted and streaked. The walls are made of concrete. We have concrete counters […] at home so I understand that sometimes water can change the look temporarily but these walls looked dirty. Also, the floors were grimy and some of our towels were on the floor. If the beds had not been made, I would have assumed that the room had not been touched by housekeeping. The rooms were nothing to write home about but they did have some retro charm that I would have appreciated more I the room was cleaner. We went to the pool party the next day and were hassled about entry to the pool even though we have them out room number and name. I understand that they want to keep a certain level of security but this is inconsistent with the fact that we met several people who were not guests. It was supposed to be a day where the pool was closed to the public. Also, we were approached twice by some guys who were selling drugs. I know it's LA but it was ridiculous. Overall, the inside of the hotel lobby was beautiful. The staff was courteous and the restaurant food was great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Do not let them park your car alone!!!"
Ok so the Roosevelt is a nice hotel. We paid for a king suite so it was pretty spacious for a good price. However the big problem was that they make you pay $32 a day to valet park your car and here's the catch...you must valet park. I thought this was avaricious from the start and I didn't like the idea of "valet" driving the $120,000 BMW convertible […] I had rented. Well wouldn't you know it on our last day there when the valet brought our car to us it had a big dent in the back! I made a report and they are denying their fault to the car rental agency. Since they have surveillance the agency asked to see their videos and they said they will only show them our last day there...very shady! It's a court matter now and I don't live in Cali so I'm filling out documents and such. Needless to say if you bring a car to the Roosevelt sit in the passenger seat as they park your car!

"The Wet Pool Party"
As always, everything was wonderful. This was my third visit and stay at the Hollywood Roosevelt and I enjoyed every moment. Everyone was very curtious and helpful from front desk to housekeeping to security and all of the hotel staff. A special thank you to Janette at pool side who always watched out for me. She is very nice and special. I have a great […] recommendation for your entertainment director. It would be in the hotels best interest if they could look into booking ZZ Ward at the hotel possibly over Labor Day weekend. She has performed at the Troubadour in W. Hollywood on Santa Monica Blvd and all over the country and TV. She is terrific and you can't go wrong in booking her for a special event over Labor Day. I suggest you look her up over the internet and Youtube music videos. Thanks and hope to see everybody again over Labor Day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, historic hotel."
It was a nice historic hotel, with convenient walking distance to the Grauman's Chinese Theatre and the Walk of Fame. We enjoyed the heated salt water pool and had a nice room service breakfast. I was happy there was a magnifying mirror in the bathroom, but the storage space for toiletries was limited. There were only 2 bath towels in the room upon […] arrival, but the staff was quick to bring 2 more after I called housekeeping. I would recommend this hotel if you are wanting to stay in the Hollywood area and be able to walk around instead of driving. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
