The Rochester Mansion

1932 Rochester Circle , Los Angeles, CA 90018 USA (Show map)


We offer you a rich history, an intoxicating experience of the decadence of 'Old Hollywood' and the extravagant luxury of Louis XVI furnishings along with superlative hospitality. We invite you into Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson's colossal legacy. Our majestic Victorian, Southern mansion was originally owned by the late Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, an American comedian and actor who appeared in over sixty motion pictures. His most famous role was Rochester van Jones, known simply as "Rochester" the valet of Jack Benny on his T.V. show The Jack Benny Program. His career earned him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Anderson was a great connoisseur. From training his winning race horses to creating lucrative real estate investments, he had the Midas touch for transforming business ventures into unprecedented successes. Today, the Rochester is owned and managed by his son Eddie "Rochester" Anderson Jr., who continues to follow in his father's monumental footsteps and to welcome people from all over the world with true hospitality. The Rochester will stop you in your tracks with its classical façade. Its seven elegantly furnished well-lit bedrooms and master suites will glow even in the wee hours of the night. Antique chandeliers, an indoor fireplace and a bar decorate the newly refurbished living room with a Rococo charm. Whether you're looking for a vacation for you while you tour our beautiful city or for corporate lodgings, or perhaps even for the perfect place to celebrate the holidays or your special occasions, the Rochester's unique facilities can accommodate you. We boast an excellent location for photo shoots, music videos and also for bringing your films to life. Contact us for more information.

I traveled to Southern California to visit a dear friend during a difficult time in her life ( an ill parent). . A friend had a great experience here so I thought I would give it a try. I must say it was absolutely GREAT. The staff was pleasant and attentive. The ambience was pleasant . The innkeeper was helpful, the rooms clean and the beds were very comfy. Kudos to the cook. My overall experience was a 10. It was definitely a home away from home. bj

Been living in Los Angeles few month , this place have some potential, but the owner and the management, even they are nice guys, are just careless in all meaning of the term, and it is such a shame to just relay on past fame and somewhat charming presence and not actively kick in. The house is beautiful and that could makeup to the fact that is in the middle of no were. The price is good but, honestly, for a short stay better off somewhere more active and "sightseeing central" read Hollywood or Venice - Santa Monica beach.

I was at Rochester's for a number of weeks. The fact that I did not have to put in a deposit, and that I could afford the rates, was very helpful to me. When I arrived I was able to access the Metro with my bicycle in just a few minutes, and find my way around Los Angeles while I got established. Many travelers came through there, and I was able to meet a number of interesting people.
