What To Know
The Roosevelt has a reputation as a party hotel for a reason. It can be noisy, especially on the weekends and especially in the Cabana Rooms (children 20 and under are not permitted in this room type)
Getting into the hip bars on the property isn’t guaranteed just because you’re a guest
This area tends to be really congested — especially during the evening rush hour
This being a tourist destination, parking is expensive, even for guests

A velvet rope playground since 1927, with a steakhouse, 24/7 burger joint, bumpin' pool party and a bowling alley
This iconic property on Hollywood Boulevard opened in 1927 and hosted the first Academy Awards show, back in 1929. While many of the historic features remain, including the gurgling lobby fountain, Spanish-style steps (where Shirley Temple learned to tap dance), wrought iron chandeliers and hand-stenciled ceilings, the renovated 299-room property is now a center of California cool, establishing a new level of glamour — and debauchery — in Tinseltown.
Bed & Bath
The guestrooms are surprisingly quiet given the scene below, with chocolate-brown accent walls, pillowy beds topped with 400-thread-count Sferra linens and vintage photos of celebs. The credenza is lined with top-shelf booze and mixers that beg for the party to continue. The coolest feature may be the live video feed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in front of the hotel. Bathrooms are compact but have magnifying mirrors (the better to beautify yourself with) and C.O. Bigelow products.
The Hollywood Roosevelt has so many restaurants and bars that you may feel as if all of L.A. is inside (and it sometimes is). The historic Public Kitchen & Bar updated the once clubby steakhouse with lofty interiors, butcher block tables and 1960s library chairs but retained the côte de boeuf with bone marrow for two. You can get one of the city’s best burgers any hour of the day at 25 Degrees. Or you can get the party started over small bites and cocktails at the Tropicana Pool Bar, whose cabana rooms, fireplaces and daybeds wrap around the famed David Hockney pool. You can keep sipping there or try out the farm-to-glass cocktails at the Library Bar, or check out the raucous (and hard to get into) is the subterranean Teddy’s nightclub. But we prefer the clubby Spare Room, with its vintage board games and two-lane bowling alley.
