The Rochester Mansion

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


Welcome to The Rochester Mansion was the home of the first nationally syndicated African American Hollywood actor Eddie Rochester Anderson who has earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. These historical properties exude Old Hollywood energy with the extravagant luxury of Louis XVI furnishings while embracing worldly travelers and professionals into our community. We offer clean and safe housing with many amenities (wifi, breakfast, pool, etc) for guests to comfortably immerse themselves in the beautiful city of Los Angeles. Mr. Anderson had a vision to use his properties and success to create a rehabilitation center for at-risk and homeless. Eddie Anderson Jr. has developed his father’s vision into the community we share at The Anderson Estates. Our majestic Victorian, Southern mansion was originally owned by the late Eddie "Rochester" Anderson who appeared in over sixty motion pictures. His most famous role was Rochester van Jones, known as "Rochester" the valet of Jack Benny on the T.V. show The Jack Benny Program. The Rochester Mansion will stop you in your tracks with its classical façade. Its 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. 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.

Two Months' Stay

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.
