The Roosevelt Hotel
is a historic Spanish-style hotel
located at 7000 Hollywood Boulevard
in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California
. Named after Theodore Roosevelt
and financed by a group including Douglas Fairbanks
, Mary Pickford
and Louis B. Mayer
, it first opened its doors on May 15, 1927. It cost $2.5 million to complete this twelve-story building which holds 300 rooms and suites. It is now managed by Thompson Hotels.
Following a major renovation in 2005 which was overseen by Dodd Mitchell, The Roosevelt has been more prominently featured in films and in Hollywood nightlife. There has been a recent surge in popularity within young Hollywood in the last few years, thanks to trendy nightclub Teddy's, which is located in the main lobby of the hotel.
