Recasting The Hollywood Roosevelt



Palm Springs
Cabana Rooms evoke Palm Springs circa 1950.


The iconic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel just became even more desirable. The hotel has completed a redesign of its Cabana Rooms and debuted three new entertainment venues.

The 60 Cabana Rooms—surrounding the infamous Tropicana Pool, which is known for its greenery and famous pool mural—have been redesigned to evoke Palm Springs circa 1950.

The new rooms have hardwood flooring, herringbone-patterned fabric walls, chaise lounges with orange leather accents and white marble bathrooms offering a modern twist on a retro design aesthetic.

Retractable walls of windows in all Cabana Rooms allow for an indoor/outdoor experience, while select rooms come with private patios and balconies for prime poolside viewing.

Off the Hollywood Roosevelt’s lobby, Public Kitchen & Bar is a new dining experience from Executive Chef Tim Goodell. Dishes are prepared with the freshest ingredients and served alongside wine, artisanal beers and hand-crafted cocktails. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, and the setting also features late-night dining and live entertainment.

Public’s completely transformed interiors celebrate the landmark hotel’s original Spanish Colonial architecture (think brass chandeliers anchored by the hotel’s 1927 ceiling fresco, which was recently uncovered and restored). Rustic oak cabinetry, black walnut tables and cabernet leather booths round out the laissez-faire vibe, while a masculine, three-sided, marble-topped bar looks out to the hotel’s grand lobby and serves as the entrance point.

The Spare Room above the lobby, and overlooking Hollywood Boulevard, is a modern-day gaming parlor featuring two reclaimed bowling lanes and backgammon tables.

Beacher’s Madhouse is a neo-Vaudeville-inspired theater on the hotel’s lower level, with European influences and echoes of the Folies Bergère. Guests enter the theater through a passageway hidden behind a library bookcase and travel through a light tunnel.

The venue has 2,500 square feet of space, featuring tiered glass stages, oversized objects and floor-to-ceiling crystal chandeliers. The walls are embedded with a mishmash of unique objects, such as mannequins and old pieces of furniture.
