7 floors, 96 units, one working elevator and apparently main supervisor "Camilia" thinks that we should feel lucky that at least we have one working.She will speak with you in a very disrespectful way and i'm not the only one that had to

1. 6 cars in the 'secure' parking deck had the windows broken and contents stolen
2. There was no video of the incident and the management has done nothing to investigate this obvious 'inside' job
3. Residents saw 3 'suspect' individuals at 4am and did not call the police
4. Management did not assist victims with clean up: use of vaccum, brooms, new front door code
5. Overall, management and owners do not reinvest in building nor do they take any interest in their tenants issues with the building

Pros: Historical Art Deco Look

Cons: Unsafe, Uncaring management, not maintained

This building was a great Hollywood treasure and is now wasting away. Where did these terrible owners and managers come from? They have no respect for history, architecture nor the people that call this place home. If I could buy the building and make it great again I sure would... So sad :-(

This lovely old building is in the hands of incompetent fools. Nasty, rude unprofessional people.
There used to be a wonderful atmosphere in this building when I visited friends here, people chatted in the mail room, in the lobby, got to know each other, posted messages on the board. Now there's nobody in the lobby, the chandeliers are unlit most of the time (the owners are obviously cutting down on services but not on rents) the elevators are constantly out of order for months, nobody lets us know when they'll be repaired, there's never anyone to sign for packages (a service we pay inflated rents for), if you want hardwood floors, you have to pay for them yourself!

Not a friendly building, people are baling out in droves, Including us as soon as our lease is up.

Pros: Beautiful Art-Deco building

Cons: No garbage collection in building, you have to take it to the dumpster yourself, rude management,

I second that motion! This place scared me away. I was in the building for a couople of years and couldn't take it... managers of this building need to get some schooling!

What a discussion. The Ravenswood was once a classic, genteel Hollywood icon. For now, the lights have dimmed on this majestic work of art. A flea circus somewhere is missing its management team and somehow they found their way to the Ravens. Poor place is a mess. I moved out last month but do hope it's placed in better hands one day soon.

Very interesting comments! Unfortunately I agree with the negative ones... The Ravenswood is a beautiful old building but it's in the hands of uncaring, unprofessional management. I moved out a couple of months ago for this reason. The glory days are over - but only for now I hope!

Hi to everybody. I'm from Italy and I spent 3 weeks in LA last summer. I stayed at the ravenswood and I'm actually stunned by all the negative comments about the place. I loved it. but it was my first time in LA and probably that helped a lot...
the thing is I was looking for a small place there, I'll be back this summer with my girlfriend and I'd really like to take her there with the pool and everything, so if anybody knows about a free place for a couple weeks this august, well please let me know!!
thanks. Luca

In a year since i lived at the Ravenswood i remember it was only one time when one of the elevators was not working. It was fixed right away. I don't really know why the tenant she or he posted that review about the elevators and the management? It is not the management fault. We don't have big problems in this building, but let's tell the truth, there are 100 units in this building, things break and are taken care of right away. And there are some tenants that have no respect for this beautiful building.
So for whoever is reading the reviews here, whatever she or he wrote is a lie. We have some neighbors (a few) that are not happy here and i really don't know why they are still here. They were probably unhappy with all the managements that they had.
So come see the building. There is nothing scary here. The management and the manager are great.

Pros: Very good and friendly management

I have been living at the Ravenswood for more than ten years and I am not plannig to move out. I was very surprised when I read the review about our management. By the way you can not be "Talmadge"and is by far the best management we have ever had(have the courage to write for yourself and not under the company name). They are on top of everything and they handles all the problems very professionally. I asked around my neighbors what do they think about our management and I heard only good things, they take care of our problems immediatelly and are very kind and strict. That in my opinion is in our benefit.
I'd like to tell few words to the one who wrote the review on 02/19/2008 : "You are the only one that has a problem in your had or you are one of the bed tenants that doesn't like the building rules. Just move out and let us live peaceful at the Ravenswood."

Pros: huge space, many closets, great pool

Cons: loud

My wife and I have been a resident of The Ravenswood for many years. We have gone through many owners and resident managers. This management, without question has been remarkable.
Whoever Mr. or Ms. Anonymous(aka"Talmadge") are and wrote his/her review had to have gotten out of the wrong side of the bed EVERY DAY. By the way, Mr./Ms. Anonymous(aka"Talmadge"), you don't even know how hard is to find a place like this .
This management company have been exemplary in every way.
The Ravenswood is a best kept secret in Los Angeles. I didn't even know apartments like these existed in Los Angeles. Anyone who ever lived on the east coast will find a bit of NYC or Chicago with spacious rooms, ceiling moldings (that are not even made any longer), old-world charm, hardwood floors or new carpet, walk-in closets, parking, and a well-groomed garden and pool that can be reserved by tenants for private parties.
Apart from being ridiculously spacious, the apartments have been well maintained, it has all of the original moldings, colors, and doors and fixtures. The management is so helpful and very accommodating to our requests. Anytime there has been a problem, we have had no problem getting it taken care of. It's a beautiful place to live, and a great environment, and our neighbors have been very friendly.
Since the real(not the person who wrote on feb.2008) Talmadge Company took over management, immediate response to any problems in our unit have been taken care of immediately. Kudos to them.

So, Mr./Ms. Anonymous(aka"Talmadge), we hope you're living well where ever you are. We certainly are.

Peace.........Out!

Pros: architecture,interesting history of building,clean, location, Hollywood history

Cons: some people with no life

I Agree! This place is managed by absolutely terrible, unprofessional, unskilled, lazy, bums that just want to make a quick buck. The place is going to hell. SAD!!!

You slammed the nail on the head, kids! The nuts running this joint are cracked! Making up rules and regs at the drop of a hat. Nothing consistent with the management. Peeps are leaving in droves and for good reason!

This is THE worst manage building in Los Angeles. If you are lulled by the gorgeous building with history and great surrounding area think twice before moving. The management is rude and unfriendly here and there is no where to turn as the higher you go the worse they are. There is NO on site management and you will wait months to have things fixed. The water gets shut off constantly, the elevators break monthly (and take months to get fixed), they have no concern for historical preservation and think "formica" countertops are a great "upgrade" to the old art deco tile.

There is so much turn over in the building as people try to terminate their leases - just talk to some people that live here before renting - you will be thankful that you did.

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE - avoid like the plague and look into the Hermoyne across the street or the El Royale if you can get in.

Pros: you can spill whatever you want in the building as no one will know - it will just add to all the other garbage they have never bothered cleaning

Cons: everything - especially the management.

This is my first online review of any kind, and I'm not entirely sure why I feel compelled to write it but here goes... I live at the Ravenswood and have heard neighbors complain about how crappy the management is, how the building has gone down, etc. Honestly, I don't know what they're talking about. The building is gorgeous. It's old, so of course it has some quirks, but they only add to the building's charm in my opinion. It has character. On-site management is friendly and attentive. I've never experienced a slow response from maintenance. It's a bit pricey, but every decent apartment in L.A. is pricey. No news there. At least at the Ravenswood, I get the feeling that I'm contributing (in some small way) to keeping a beautiful old Hollywood landmark alive and thriving. Plus, it beats the HECK out of living in a prefab box like my last place which, by the way, was every bit as expensive as the Ravenswood without any of its grace or history. (And it was in the Valley. What was I thinking?)

Interestingly enough, the only times I've ever encountered anything negative at the Ravenswood are those times when I bump into - to be perfectly candid - a stuffy or otherwise pretentious fellow resident who happens to be in the mood to vent. There are a few of them who seem to go around with their noses in the air most of the time, but thankfully they're in the minority. Maybe they know something I don't. Maybe the place did run more efficiently under the old management company. All I know is that the Ravenswood management team is better than many other management companies out there. I've had some that were completely nonexistant. And it's still a beautiful place to live. I feel fortunate to have found a spot there.

Just came across the recent postings and had to comment. I lived at the Ravenswood for years until they changed owners/management a couple of years ago. Since that time it has changed dramatically and is run unprofessionally by incompetents. A sad situation for a glorious Hollywood building. I hope it receives the proper owner and quality staff it deserves some day soon.

I lived at the Ravenswood for one year and couldn't wait to move when my lease was up. The building itself is an art deco masterpiece and the apartment space beautiful. However, the architecture couldn't make up for the unprofessional management which was consistently rude, unresponsive to even the smallest request, downright nasty and constantly contradicting the terms outlined in the lease agreement.

It's truly unfortunate that such a gracious, historic building is run in such a deplorable manner! During my search for my new home I heard from other apt. managers that people have been leaving the Ravenswood in droves. Not surprising!

I lived here for 3 years. I moved out because it was pricey for an old aprtment building. The place is clean and always kept up but it is expensive for what you should be getting. The in house manager is great and helpful. The place was home to Mae West for over 50 years but it is pricey.
