Opened on May 15, 1927, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has been featured in many TV shows, films, songs, and general Hollywood history.
The first Academy Awards were held in the Blossom Ballroom here in 1929.
Marilyn Monroe was a resident at the Hollywood Roosevelt for two years when her modeling career took off. Her first magazine shoot was taken on the diving board on the pool behind the hotel, which was recently removed. The hotel's remodeled pool contains an underwater mural painted by David Hockney. Her ghost is supposed to haunt Cabana Suite 229.
The hotel underwent a major renovation in 2005 and a nightclub named Teddy's in the main lobby.
