I like the Roosevelt because of its history. I find most of the people who work there infatuated with their own sense of importance. The hotel's Dakota restaurant purports to project elegance but by trying so hard it projects only a caricature. Compared to the style, grace and friendliness of the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Roosevelt is a hillbilly.
Named after President Theodore Roosevelt, the Roosevelt Hotel opened in 1927. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences located its first offices on the hotel's mezzanine and in 1929 held the first Academy Awards in the Blossom Room (with Errol Flynn serving bootlegged gin in the barbershop's back room). Marilyn Monroe's first screen test was held here. Bill "Bojangles" Robinson used the stairway leading from the lobby to the mezzanine to teach Shirley Temple the famous staircase dance performed in The Little Colonel.Recommended for:History Buffs

Finding a hotel is usually about getting a place to sleep, but for nightlife lovers, L.A. is the perfect place to find a hotel that's best for staying awake. The party here centers around the pool, where you can get drinks until 2 a.m. while you do some celeb spotting. Teddy's nightclub downstairs is equally as star studded, but it can often be tough to get in (unless, of course, you are Justin Timberlake or Jay-Z).

We know it's not very Hollywood to get up before noon, but should you find yourself not-too-hungover to start your day in the AM, head over to The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Sure, you've probably partied there more times than you care to (hazily) remember, but you should definitely check out the celebrated pool. And while you will never get the chance to sit on the (now removed) diving board next to Marilyn Monroe, you can still soak up some sun at the pool's celeb-sighting-tastic Tropicana Bar and sip on a Marilyn Suite. (MM once said, "Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul"...so, $16 for her namesake cocktail seems a bargain, no?) If you're one of those sophisticated types who refuse to start drinking without a proper breakfast, the hotel's Public Kitchen & Bar does a wicked weekend brunch: $35 for 2 courses, plus your choice of champagne, mimosa or bellini. For a mere $6 more, they'll make those bubblies bottomless (now that's some movie magic!).

This hotel is in the heart of Hollywood and therefore walking distance to a plethora of bars and restaurants, like Musso & Frank, Kitchen24, and Stout. Or you could just stay right where you are and have a juicy gourmet burger from the Roosevelt's on site restaurant 25 Degrees. Then once you're nice and full, go lounge by the pool and take a nap.Recommended for:Foodies

This is one of the hippest hotels in L.A. - known as much for its stylish hotel scene as for its great service. Beautiful pool area that becomes a velvet rope party scene on weekends. Right in central Hollywood.

The site of the first Oscars, this is one of Hollywood’s original glamour hotels. Named after Theodore Roosevelt and financed by a group including Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford and Louis B. Mayer, it first opened its doors in 1927. Countless stars have been residents or guests over the years – Clark Gable and Carole Lombard paid five dollars a night for their penthouse, which is now named the Gable & Lombard Penthouse. Following a major renovation in 2005, The Roosevelt has been more prominently featured in films and in Hollywood nightlife. There has been a recent surge in popularity in the last few years, thanks to trendy nightclub Teddy’s, which is located in the main lobby of the hotel. Hit 25 Degrees for their signature burgers, shakes and fries, or saddle up to the famed poolside Tropicana bar, which still hosts hip parties and events.

Location, location, location...but aside from the great location that is walking distance to the restaurants and bars of Hollywood are the large rooms with cool furniture and the rooftop pool with the amazing views

Truly a classic gem of a hotel. This hotel may be old, but it it is far from stale. The rooms have been recently upated and are very comfortable. The lobby bar is not to missed. And if you are in the mood for a burger, the restaurant here makes one of the best in LA!

The Roosevelt is a Hollywood institution, and a great choice if you want to get a taste of Hollywood nightlife. Going out in Hollywood can vary widely - from total dive bars to total over-the-top scenes. The Roosevelt is more along the lines of the latter - but without the ridiculous line or hassle of "being on the list." Hang out by the poolside bar for a more casual feel with great ambiance. Also - the burger place in the hotel "25 Degrees" is great.
The hotel rooms are exactly what you would expect - modern and chic, almost too-cool-for-school. The views of Hollywood Blvd. are awesome, though, and you can't beat the location - right across the street from the Hollywood & Highland shopping center, which is where the Kodak Theatre is (where the Oscars are held).
