The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel Turns 90

Our tips for an adult spring break at the famous Tinseltown site


Published:

Experience a slice of Tinseltown history with a weekend getaway to the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. The iconic property was home to the first-ever Academy Awards, and a young Marilyn Monroe was catapulted to stardom after posing for a suntan ad on the hotel’s diving board. This year marks its 90th anniversary.

Plan an adult spring break at the famed Tropicana Pool, designed by British artist David Hockney, who’s having a moment thanks to his current exhibition at the Tate in London. We recommend the Poolside Pleasures package, which includes 20 percent off a bungalow suite, a $100 food and beverage credit, and complimentary valet parking. Or splurge and stay in the Marilyn suite, where the beloved actress lived for two years.
