This hotel has seen better days. Don't be taken in by the claims on its website that they redid the rooms in the last couple of years. That appears to mean that they put a bed runner on the end of the beds. The pillows and linens were ancient. The bathroom was last done in the 60's. The closet consisted... More

I stayed 4 nights at the Roosevelt for a training conference. On the scale of smaller NYC hotels this one is OK. The lobby is very nice but there is no restaurant and the bar was always very croweded. The room was a nice size and the bed comfortable. You have to pay for wifi :( If you are looking... More

Perfect location, just next to Central Station. The baroque lobby is an attraction on its own. The gym earned a bullet. Breakfast is fine but way too expensive, plenty of diners in the neighborhood that offer bf at 1/3 the price. Bed was really fine, good cushions. And for me, that is what matters the most in a hotel. Hence... More

Where should I start with the over hyped "historical hotel" in the heart of it all. Well, two stars should be its rating because of its location. If you like nonsmoking rooms that were smoked in for 60 years prior, dimly lit, hairs in the bathroom, Taco Bell soft fold up beds with 1940's bathrooms where the best part is... More

The Roosevelt Hotel is literally across the street from the side entrance to Grand Central Station, the perfect midtown location. It's close enough to the theater district and Time Square to walk three blocks and be in the middle of it all, without the crazy noise and masses of people. They don't have an in-house restaurant, just a breakfast buffet... More

This hotel is advertised as a four star hotel, but it is more like a three star hotel. The lobby is quite nice and grand, but the rooms are not up to par. Our room was very small and immediately opposite the elevators – not ideal. Somehow, we were also given a handicapped room and the shower was not separate... More

Hotel was lovely staff were very friendly we arrived at 11 am and are... More

Yes, it's a great location and the lobby is grand. The bed was comfortable, the room and bath were of adequate size and reasonably clean, and the water temperature and pressure in the shower were fine. On the downside: the wallpaper in the room was peeling off the wall, the towels were raggedy, the elevators were frequently overwhelmed on the... More

This place is pretty old and dated. The lobby is beautiful in a traditional design sense but the rooms and upper levels are pretty worn down and drab. They were nice enough to give me an early check-in though when I mentioned I had taken a redeye and hoped they may be nice enough to accommodate, they said "that was... More
