The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has unveiled its new design.
Built in 1927, the hotel has undergone a USD$25 million renovation by renowned design firm Yabu Pushelberg.
Hotel COO Brett Blass said, “The Hollywood Roosevelt’s reputation as an iconic, one-of-a-kind lifestyle hotel has been forged with distinction in Hollywood’s history. It’s an exciting time for the entire hotel team and for Los Angeles – our stunning guest room renovation celebrates this landmark hotel’s character, charm and Hollywood roots while making us all very enthusiastic for the future ahead.”
Yabu Pushelberg’s revamp features a palette showcasing subtle textures, beautiful leathers, and soft grey tones with persimmon-red accents. The new design maintains the integrity of the hotel’s Spanish Colonial roots.
The Hollywood Roosevelt also includes one of Hollywood’s most cherished oases: the palm tree encased Tropicana Pool. In 1988, famed British painter David Hockney completed a multi-million-dollar mural painted on the bottom of the Tropicana Pool, which has since been hailed as one of Los Angeles’s greatest artistic and architectural marvels. Both the hotel and the pool have been designated Historic-Cultural Monuments by the City’s Cultural Heritage Commission.
The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has a legendary reputation, beginning in 1929 when the hotel hosted the inaugural Academy Awards. Over the past 100 years, it has welcomed Clark Gable, Carol Lombard, Shirley Temple, Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe (who resided there), as well as Prince, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
With 298 guest rooms and suites, guests can choose from a variety of accommodations ranging from poolside cabanas to the new-look Tower Rooms.
