Recommendation by Lemi
The place to be seen for stars of movies past, The Hollywood Roosevelt has hosted actors like Clark Gable ("Gone with the Wind," 1939) and Carole Lombard ("My Man Godfrey," 1936)—who even have a room named after them—among others. Los Angeles’ oldest operating hotel was also home to the first Academy Awards, which was held in a banquet hall right off the lobby. Outside, follow the palm trees to the famous Tropicana Pool, and dive in to revel at the multi-million dollar mural by famed painter David Hockney at the bottom. The palm-tree lined poolside was a favorite of “All About Eve” (1950) actress Marilyn Monroe, who kept a cabana for herself for almost two years.
