The Roosevelt hotel is at the ideal location right by the French Quarter. Far enough from the noise but close enough to walk to, a mere 5 mins walk. The hotel can easily be reached from the airport using an Airport shuttle which will take you about 30 mins depending on traffic.
This hotel is split between 2 towers, tower 1 and tower 2. I happen to get tower 1 and on a higher floor, 12. The views are nothing to shout about.
The rooms depending on where you get can be either quite cosy (room 11221) or larger ( room 11206 ). I heard through some of my colleagues that tower 2 is better designed. Ask for a higher floor too.
My only disappointment is in the details and furnishings which were a tad tired with some wear and tear.
The bed is very comfortable, but I noticed the temperature of the shower as well as water flow was hard to control.
Overall service was good and the hotel also boasts a highly recommended pizza restaurant, Domenica.
I would definitely come back here again just based on the convenience of this hotels location.
