Like any classic Hollywood star, Thompson Hotels' Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has continuously reinvented itself over the years, and the iconic 300-room hotel has once again seen a rebirth with the redesign of the historic Cabana Rooms and the debut of three innovative entertainment venues: Public Kitchen & Bar, The Spare Room and Beacher's Madhouse.
Since 1927, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has been the playground of luminaries including Clark Gable, Carole Lombard and Marilyn Monroe and the birthplace of the Academy Awards. As Hollywood continues to redefine itself, so does its landmark hotel, offering the ultimate luxury guest experience in-room and out, while paying homage to its roots. With the addition of these new spaces to the hotel's existing portfolio of celebrated venues, including Teddy's, Library Bar and the Tropicana Bar, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel reaffirms its status as a social epicenter for Hollywood's elite.
The 60 Cabana Rooms, surrounding the famous Tropicana Pool with lush greenery, palm trees and the famous pool mural hand painted by acclaimed pop artist David Hockney, have been redesigned to evoke a Jet setter's retreat to Palm Springs in the 1950's. Light and airy with whimsical accoutrements, the new Cabana Rooms feature hardwood flooring, herringbone-patterned fabric walls, chaise lounges with orange leather accents and white marble bathrooms, providing a modern twist on a clean and simple retro design aesthetic. Retractable walls of windows in all Cabana Rooms allow for the ultimate indoor/outdoor experience and easy pool access, while select rooms offer private patios and balconies for prime viewing of poolside activity. The Cabanas at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel provide the quintessential Hollywood experience; a unique destination within the destination for those that want to be part of the scene that is shaping Hollywood's next chapter.
Public Kitchen + Bar
Located off of the Hollywood Roosevelt's historic lobby, Public Kitchen & Bar is an exciting new dining experience from Executive Chef Tim Goodell and The Domaine Restaurant Group. A complete transformation in food, design and experience, Public has a bustling, comfortable vibe that inspires social interaction, along with great food, cocktails and vibrant music. Dishes are prepared with the freshest ingredients, and served alongside wine, artisanal beers, and hand crafted cocktails. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, and Public also features late-night dining and live entertainment. Public's interiors by LA-based design firm, Studio Collective celebrates the landmark hotel's original Spanish Colonial architecture, airy and boisterous with brass chandeliers anchored by the hotel's original 1927 ceiling fresco, recently uncovered and restored. Rustic oak cabinetry, black walnut tables and cabernet leather booths round out the lively and comfortable vibe, while a large, masculine, three-sided, marble-topped bar looks out to the hotel's grand lobby and serves as the entrance point.
The Spare Room, located above the lobby, and overlooking Hollywood Boulevard, provides unparalleled amenities to hotel guests as well as a unique destination for Hollywood's architects of influence, this modern-day gaming parlor highlights the camaraderie and spirit of gaming with two reclaimed bowling lanes, and custom-built backgammon tables. Combining cocktail and culinary culture along with exceptional service, The Spare Room is a social experience where details (and taste) matter.
Beacher's Madhouse is a revolutionary Vaudeville-inspired theater on the hotel's lower level, with European influences and echoes of the Folies Bergére. Guests enter the theater through an inconspicuous passageway, hidden behind a library bookcase, and travel through a light tunnel from ordinary existence into a fantasy-filled world. The venue extends 2,500 square feet, featuring tiered glass stages, oversized objects, and floor-to-ceiling crystal chandeliers. The walls are embedded with a mish-mash of unique objects, such as mannequins and old pieces of furniture, bringing the setting to life on an unprecedented level.
The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is located at 7000 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA. For more information or reservations, visit www.thompsonhotels.com/hotels/la/hollywood-roosevelt or call 800-950-7667.
