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 andHollywood roots while making us all very enthusiastic for the future ahead.”
The iconic boutique hotel has recently undergone a $25 millionroom 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.
