The Roosevelt Hotel Review

: This grande dame of a hotel, which opened in 1924, welcomes guests back in time with the help of a stunning lobby. Though signs of age are showing a bit on the last renovation, The Roosevelt --- which houses 1,015 rooms --- is still an awfully pretty place. This glorious Italian Renaissance building occupies a full city block just north of Grand Central and features some major architectural highlights. Notable is the Palm Room, the two-story oval-shaped space canopied by a sky-mural ceiling where guests can take afternoon tea. Art Deco design elegance abounds and public areas reflect the classicism of this era as well as contemporary accents that create a thoroughly comfortable atmosphere. Guest rooms feature flat-screen TVs, iPod-dock clock radios, ergonomic desk chairs and Wi-Fi. The rooms are lacking in originality, with their muted art, patterned bedspreads and conservative d├ęcor. Fortunately, the original artwork has been retained in the Madison Club Lounge, where guests gather for tangerine-flavored martinis at the 31-foot-long bar. Roosevelt Grill offers American and Continental cuisine. In warmer months, the rooftop mad46 is a pleasant place to relax with a drink. Versatile meeting spaces can equally accommodate a small group or large gathering.
