Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel Unveils Renovation Work

The iconic 300-room Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has just completed a redesign of the historic Cabana Rooms as well as debuted three innovative entertainment venues: Public Kitchen & Bar, The Spare Room and Beacher’s Madhouse. 

The 60 Cabana Rooms, surrounding the infamous Tropicana Pool boasting lush greenery and the famous pool mural hand painted by acclaimed pop artist David Hockney, have been redesigned to evoke Palm Springs circa 1950. 

Light and airy with whimsical accoutrements, the new Cabana Rooms feature 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 ideal indoor/outdoor experience, while select rooms offer private patios and balconies for prime viewing of poolside activity. 

Located off of the Hollywood Roosevelt’s historic lobby, Public Kitchen & Bar is a new dining experience from Executive Chef Tim Goodell and The Domaine Restaurant Group.  A complete transformation in food, design and experience, Public's dishes are prepared with the freshest ingredients, and served alongside wine, artisanal beers, and hand crafted cocktails. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, and Public also features late-night dining and live entertainment. 

Public’s interiors by LA-based design firm, Studio Collective celebrates the landmark hotel’s original Spanish Colonial architecture, airy yet boisterous with brass chandeliers anchored by the hotel’s original 1927 ceiling fresco, 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, located above the lobby, and overlooking Hollywood Boulevard, provides a modern-day gaming parlor featuring two reclaimed bowling lanes, and custom-built 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 Bergére. Guests enter the theater through an inconspicuous passageway, hidden behind a library bookcase, and travel through a light tunnel.

The venue extends 2,500 square feet, featuring tiered glass stages, oversized objects, and floor-to-ceiling crystal chandeliers. The walls are embedded with a mish-mash of unique objects, such as mannequins and old pieces of furniture, offering an eclectic and vibrant setting.
