    Visited already the pool so I wanted to try the hotel even if I'm not a fan of the location. Not impressed. Super tiny rooms, inattentive staff. Won't come back but will just visit the pool instead..

    The Hollywood Roosevelt is the oldest continually operating hotel in LA since its opening in 1927. The 1st Academy Awards was held here in 1929. Feel free to explore the main lobby!

    FYI: Rm 323 sucks. The view is awful and it's above the bar. If they try to check you in to that room, just say no. Probably the whole 3rd floor, as well.

    허리웃 대로변에 있는 호텔이라 이 근처 다니면서 쇼핑 등등을 즐기기 좋아요. 유니버셜 스튜디오도 호텔 앞에서 택시 타면 십분 안걸리고, 게티센터, 그리피스 천문대 등등도 가깝고... 아무튼 이 호텔이 백년 된 호텔이라고 하네요. 2014년에 많은 방들이 리노베이션 해서 깨끗하구요.
