There’s no Hollywood history without the Hollywood Roosevelt.
In its early years, the hotel played host to countless icons: Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, among others. It’s served as inspiration for filmmakers and creatives who have set their movies within this storybook backdrop.
