Good location but that's it

Posted 28-Aug-2014
Pros: Useful Location
Cons: Decor
Location: Good for sightseeing tours and public transport
Useful for tours being located on Hollywood Boulevard but hotel rooms in dire need of refurb carpet was beyond yucky and decor very drab and dark not to mention the size of the room. Main lobby area very dim lit and not very comfortable to relax with a drink in.

Very elegant in the middle of Hollywood

Posted 22-Aug-2014
Pros: The beautiful old world Hollywood style interior lounge.
Location: The location was in the middle of all attractions with street entertainment and restaurants outside the Hotel door.
Busy every day and night with entertainment right outside the Hotel door. Bus tours were plentiful with the on/off bus and we were able to travel to all the attractions easily.

Not bad

Posted 18-Aug-2014
It was my first time there. Stayed there for a wedding. Wedding reception was at the roosevelt. It was great for the reception and seemed to be the place to be in hollywood. The hotel portion was ok. Old school but seems that is what they are going for. My riom was a pool villa (wasn't bad). Didn't feel like a vacation hotel. Felt like I was staying at a huge lounge. I would definitely hang out there again but prob wouldn't stay there again. Pool was awesome!

Nice hotel close to the action!!

Beautifully preserved hotel with helpful and friendly staff! Nice to know it was the home for the Oscars in the 1920's. Will surely come back if I can.

Great Hotel

Posted 12-Aug-2014
Pros: The history and the location
Cons: The bathroom; would have been nice to have a counter to put our tolitries on and an exhaust fan in there would be a good addition.
Location: Chinese theatre, Wax Museums, Starline tours (TMZ was awesome), In-N-Out Burger, Pinks Famous Hotdogs, Jimmy Kimmel, Dolby Theatre, Hard Rock Cafe
We had a great time. We felt a little un-hip, as this seemed to be where the cool kids come to play in Hollywood. We loved that it was right across the street from Graumans Chinese Theatre. It was also not far from many of the other places we wanted to go. The staff were all very friendly and nice. Parking is expensive, but we knew that before booking and was no more expensive than most other hotels we looked at. The history of the hotel and the old hollywood atmosphere really made this hotel special. Even though we were an overweight, midwestern, middle aged couple we were still treated great and had fun. We just didn't look like most of the fabulous people staying there.

Fantastic Night Away

Posted 11-Aug-2014
Pros: Loved almost everything. Fantastic Staff from right when you arrive, to check in etc.
Cons: Rude girl at the door to "The Public House" where the bowling alley was... it was empty and said me and my girlfriend could get in but not our guys.
Location: We went to see a Concert at the Greek Theatre... took a cab there.
GREAT Hotel. We stayed in the newly renovated side overlooking the pool. Very cool. Nice guest and the pool bar was great. "The Library" was incredible... fantastic food and Alex which mixed anything and everything to give you a fresh cocktail to your exact liking was a true Drink Artist. We had a fantastic time.

Very good location

Posted 07-Aug-2014
Great location right on the main tourist strip, very close to transport and they have some great bars and an awesome pool area, staff are friendly and rooms are a good size. Rooms are clean and the hotel is very well known so if your lost just ask and basically everyone knows where this hotel is.
