I have read / heard a lot about the Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Blvd. Home of the first academy awards, Marilyn Monroe had her first commercial taken there, Shirley Temple learned to tap dance there.
Is it worth going in there for a visit? Do they just let you walk around the lobby and upstairs area with Hollywood memorabilia?
Just in case you don't know about it.. this tells you all about it and its history:
