Opened in 1927 as a luxurious hotel to service the new movie industry in Los Angeles, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel was the the place to catch a glimpse of movie stars.

Named after Theodore Roosevelt, this hotel was financed by an affluent Hollywood group including Louis B Mayer, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. In the late 1920s, the cost of building the hotel was approximately $2.5 million so it was an extremely expensive project.

It was the place to be seen by celebrities and hosted opening night galas and any important Hollywood event. In fact, in 1929 the Hollywood Roosevelt hosted the first Academy Awards ceremony in the Blossom Ballroom.

This 12-storey hotel was built with 302 rooms and suites. In 1983, there was a $240 million dollar restoration done on the Hollywood Roosevelt and it now features 335 luxury rooms. Located in hub of Hollywood, the Roosevelt Hotel is located across the street from Mann’s Chinese Theater and the famous Hollywood “Walk of Fame” is at its doorstep on Hollywood Boulevard.

Haunting of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

Marilyn Monroe stayed at the Hollywood Roosevelt for two years just after she became a famous model. She lived in Suite 1200 which looked down to the pool. In Marilyn’s room there was a full-length mirror and it was eventually moved to the hotel manager’s office.

A hotel employee was dusting the mirror one day and saw the face of Marilyn Monroe staring back at her. The mirror is now located in the hotel lobby where visitors hope to see the occasional of appearance of Marilyn in the mirror.
