Roosevelt Hotel Extremely historic place for Hollywood buffs. Spanish Revival style. Opened in 1929 with owners including Louis B. Meyer, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford. The first academy awards were held here in 1928 or 1929 (then called the "Merit Awards") in the "Blossom Room". The set for the TV show "This is Your Life" was located here. The Cinegrill was a famous 1940s nightclub still existing inside. Marilyn Monroe used to stay here and her ghost is said to still haunt the halls (hey - it helps business). Reasonable rates, but rooms facing Hollywood Blvd may be a bit noisier. You can see the hotel in the films Beverly Hills Cop II and Charlie's Angels 2.

Avis Rent A Car used to have an office at the Hollywood Roosevelt and may still have..In the 70's I was a Manager for Avis and used to travel to many office locations we called them agencies back in the day I was always traveling to many agency locations throughout So. Calif. The Roosevelt as we called it was so interesting to me as it was so old and full of history which included many famous people and movie stars from the early days...
