Which Historic Hotel hosted the first Academy Awards in 1929?

If you guessed the Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles, California, you guessed correctly! Opening its doors in May 1927, the Hollywood Roosevelt is a landmark hotel that has hosted events such as the first Academy Awards in 1929, has been featured in classic Hollywood films, and has housed Hollywood Royalty including Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, and Clark Gable.  This hotel was the brainchild of legendary filmmakers Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Mary Pickford, and Louis B. Mayer. Taking its name from popular U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt, the hotel cost $2.5 million and immediately became a landmark in Los Angeles. Just two years after its opening, the Hollywood Roosevelt hosted the very first Academy Awards, the only year that the event was intimate enough to be held in a hotel ballroom. Today, the hotel has been brought to the forefront of modern luxury. Its history is carried throughout the intricately decorated rooms and public spaces, and its nightclub Teddy’s welcomes today’s stars while paying homage to the original nominal inspiration.
