Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel | 7000 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA | ★★★★ | $$$

When Jen and I went to Los Angeles in April, we were going to treat it as an indulgent girls trip, which meant no holding back when it came to spending. (Don’t worry, Dad. We held back a little.) This was especially true when it came to the hotels we chose.

I’d heard a lot about the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for years. It’s rich with history, from its location of residency for many celebrities, to its Spanish Colonial Revival style architecture, and its alleged hauntings. It’s also conveniently located at Hollywood Boulevard, just steps from the TCL Chinese Theater, the Dolby Theater, and a host of restaurants and bars. Anything else was just a short Uber ride away. I’d always wanted a chance to stay there and experience it, and this was the perfect occasion for it.

I love using Trivago to find hotels – its search parameters help to narrow down your options based on location, price, and rating, and then figures out which booking site has the best deal for that hotel. As such, we got a great deal for 4 nights via Hotels.com and we splurged for the Deluxe King Room. We’re so happy that we did.
