How many hotels leave such an impression that 80 miles of highway are built just so the governor can get a drink? The legend of Huey P. Long and Airline Highway is one of so many that defined The Roosevelt(4.5*) for a brilliant 40-year run during the early 1900s. Though the hotel originally opened as The Grunewald in 1893 and was later renamed The Fairmont, it was during The Roosevelt years that it established itself as a beacon of luxury in the South. The hotel was a revolving door of the time’s most famous names—Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Jack Benny, Bob Hope — each adding to a legend that continues to be written today.
The moment you enter the block-long canopy of golden columns and crystal chandeliers, there’s little question that your stay will be anything short of grand. Originally one of the South’s first grand hotels, a $145 million restoration has returned The Roosevelt to its place as the premier luxury hotel in New Orleans. Now a part of the prestigious Waldorf Astoria Collection™, this landmark combines elegant guest rooms, historic dining and entertainment venues, luxurious meeting spaces and new indulgences like Guerlain Spa for a truly legendary experience in the heart of the city.
Just as The Roosevelt New Orleans (4.5*) continually defined luxury throughout the 1900s, the guest rooms and suites set a new standard of luxury in the 21st century. Every one of the 504 rooms, including 135 luxury suites, is dressed in exquisite décor and features modern amenities for an unforgettable stay.
From the bedroom to the bathroom, these sumptuous rooms include 300-thread count sheets, flat screen TVs, bathrobes, and refreshment centers — all arranged for a comfortable stay. The Superior rooms offer all the elegance of the deluxe rooms with enhanced furnishings, additional space and many boast views of downtown New Orleans.
