Classic style and iconic cocktails in an ideal location a block from the French Quarter.
Built in 1893 and renamed the Roosevelt Hotel in 1923 in honor of Theodore Roosevelt, this hotel has returned to its former glory after a $135 million renovation as a Waldorf Astoria property. The splendid, block-long lobby has always been a marvel of marble and ornate crystal chandeliers, while updated features include an outdoor pool and courtyard, as well as a 12,000-square-foot Guerlain spa. Of note is the return of the legendary-with-locals Blue Room, once the city's top supper club. The 504 guest rooms and 135 suites at the Roosevelt are comfortable and well appointed. Don’t miss having a Sazerac at the bar named for the famous cocktail, and take advantage of the happy hour half-price pizza and drinks daily from 3-6 p.m. at John Besh’s Domenica. The hotel's location near Canal Street puts it one block from the French Quarter, close to the burgeoning theater district and a longer walk to both the convention center and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
