Best Hotels for Celebrity Sightings in Los Angeles

The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

Located on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Hollywood Roosevelt faces the historic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. This Spanish Colonial Revival hotel, designed by Yabu Pushelberg, first opened its doors in 1927 and was home to the first Academy Awards ceremony in 1929.

The Hollywood Roosevelt was the brainchild of several prominent film industry professionals active in Hollywood at the height of the Roaring Twenties. Actor Douglas Fairbanks and his second wife, movie star Mary Pickford. Legendary movie producer Louis B. Mayer. The owner of the famed TCL Chinese Theater, Sid Grauman.

The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has always been one of L.A.'s most popular destinations for the elite. Today, the hotel still buzzes with industry executives and talent and is frequented by celebrities. It combines the shimmer of silver-screen history with a party scene centered around its multiple bars and large outdoor heated pool.

Spend the day at the newly-renovated 60s style Tropicana pool and café. Unplug and unwind in the Cabanas. And for private events, you may want to book The Spare Room, The Hollywood Roosevelts best-kept secret. A prohibition-era-style cocktail lounge with a vintage two-lane bowling alley and custom-made wooden board games.
