Historic charm and architectural elegance set the scene for your stay at the beautiful Roosevelt New Orleans. This stately venue is a proud property of the prestigious Waldorf Astoria Hotel group, whose reputation for gracious hospitality dates back to the 1830s. From the exquisite grand lobby to a sparkling rooftop pool, where languid afternoons can be spent gazing across the city of New Orleans, the Roosevelt caters to guest comfort with first-class rooms and premium guest services. Pillow-top mattresses, down comforters and turndown services ensure optimal comfort, while Teddy's Cafe serves up classic Louisiana breakfasts. Reserve a private space at the Waldorf Astoria Spa for personal pampering, or indulge in a therapy suite for two. Complete your relaxation at the historic Sazerac Bar with a Ramos gin fizz.

The Roosevelt at NOLA

The overall hotel experience was very good. The staff was very helpful and friendly. On our first day we asked if it was possible to move to another room (it was too noisy outside and we could hear everything that was happening on the street), they gladly accommodated our request and moved us to another tower. Another plus of the hotel is that it is located very close to the French Quarter, but still a little bit further from all street bands, bars, cafes. So if you stay there, you most likely won't be bothered by the street noise. The hotel is a little bit expensive though, but I think it worth the money and we really enjoyed our stay there.

Nice doesn't always mean good.

Although the overall appearance is extremely nice the room wasn't all that big and the service was average for the price. It's a little out of the way from everything in the city which for some might be nice but for those trying to experience NOLA, it was inconvenient.

Love the Roosevelt, just not this trip

Always stay here, love the Roosevelt. But in addition to getting none of the Marriott Silver Elite benefits I was entitled to I was put in a cramped room behind the old elevator shafts so that all night long I was awakened by the rattling, wheezing old mechanisms and the often loud and raucous conversations in the boxes themselves. The room should have been a storage room, not a guest room. However, I love the Roosevelt and will stay here again I will just double-check the room assignment well in advance.

close to St Louis Cemetery 1

walgreens is close if you forget something, ihop across the street but they have 3 onsite dining options, walking distance to burbon st., on a trolly line, we walked to frenchman street but it takes about 45 mins, the guy at the concierge desk was nice to us, very high end establishment. decorated for christmas so beautifully the lobby was full of non-guest gawkers day and night. turndown chocolates waiting for us at the end of the day. walking distance to rental car places but they are weird and close at 3, if you don't return by close you need to keep it for the night. costs extra to return the car rented from those places to the airport. the hotel held our bags between checkout and the time we needed to leave for the airport.

Weekend getaway

Great staff and atmosphere. We stayed here 31 years for our honeymoon, and the experience was as great now as then. Glad the Roosevelt is back.

Visiting adult children who relocated in New Orleans

The Roosevelt hotel provided the perfect balance to the more colorful aspects of New Orleans. We enjoyed the relaxation of the Fountain Lounge before experiencing Bourbon Street. Located just around the corner from Canal Street was ideal, it was close enough to walk to bars, art galleries and restaurants. The hotel was in beautiful condition. Since it was our first visit to New Orleans, we were not quite sure what to expect, but the Roosevelt definitely exceeded our expectations. Looking forward to our next visit!!!
