LOS ANGELES, May 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- David Chang and Goodwin Gaw, owners of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, have once again taken over the management reigns in order to further preserve the truly unique spirit of the hotel and give the undivided attention that only an in-house, independent management company may provide. The newly launched website for the historic hotel is: www.thehollywoodroosevelt.com.
Mssrs. Chang and Gaw appointed longtime hotel collaborator Brett Blass as their Chief Operating Officer to lead the repositioning efforts of the newly renovated iconic property and their new management company. "The Hollywood Roosevelt's reputation as an iconic, one-of-a-kind lifestyle hotel has been forged with distinction in Hollywood's history," said Blass, "It's an exciting time for the entire hotel team and for Los Angeles - our stunning guest room renovation celebrates this landmark hotel's character, charm and Hollywood roots while making us all very enthusiastic for the future ahead."
The iconic boutique hotel has recently undergone a $25 million room renovation, led by internationally renowned design firm Yabu Pushelberg. With a palette showcasing subtle textures, beautiful leathers, and soft grey tones with persimmon-red accents, the new design maintains the integrity of the hotel's Spanish Colonial roots, but with a modern twist. Under the new management direction, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel will continue to maintain the individuality that has allowed it to forge a distinctive place in Hollywood history for nearly 90 years, while tastefully revitalizing its storied past.
The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has long been a meeting spot for Hollywood elite and entertainment industry figures. Spaces within the hotel such as the Tropicana Cafe and the Library Bar draw creatives for its intimate and picturesque surroundings- a welcome respite from the bustling Hollywood neighborhood. The Hollywood Roosevelt exudes the charm and glamour of a bygone era through its other spaces as well: from the prohibition-era style cocktail lounge and hand-crafted bowling alley the Spare Room; to famed Hollywood hot spot, Teddy's; to the incredible views from its iconic Rooftop; and including one of Hollywood's most cherished oases: the Tropicana Pool, with its mass of palm trees and the renowned David Hockney pool--a celebrated artistic and architectural masterpiece.
The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is now a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Lifestyle Collection, which represents premiere global properties.
