The Roosevelt Hotel in the heart of Hollywood is one of your best bets for lodging that immerses you in Hollywood history and style. Once a playground to stars like Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe, the Roosevelt pays homage to its past with photos and memorabilia, but also offers a swimming pool for children and other guests who’d rather just have some fun outdoors. Two restaurants on the premises will accommodate children, but featuring steak house fare, may not be the best choice to feed a large brood.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights last month and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and spacious. The view from our room was fine - we could see some of the Boulevard but couldn't hear too much noise from it. (so we were happy!) The bathroom was small but it had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and polite. The pool area is gorgeous and the pool bar was busy but they had good drinks so it was all good! The only reason I didn't give this hotel 5 stars is because in the room I found there wasn't a hairdryer and also there wasn't a mirror near a table for me to do make-up etc. So I had to put all my make up things on the floor by the lovely big mirror right next to the front door. A little awkward but hey...
Other than that, a lovely stay. Thanks guys!
This hotel is full of old Hollywood charm and history. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The pool is a lovely oasis in the heart of downtown. Great proximity to tourist attractions. The room was beautifully designed, spacious. And very comfortable.
