“Charm and Luxury in New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The Roosevelt is a gem in a city that can be hard to find luxury. What a beautiful and historic place. The hotel exudes history and luxury. A quick and easy walk to most sites in the French Quarter. The lounges and restaurants were nice and sophisticated. The standard rooms can be a little small.This was fine for me, as I was alone. The suites are very spacious and beautiful. The staff was excellent. What a great place to stay when visiting the French Quarter.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the highest floor available. Great view if you have one towards the river.

Elegance abounds in this hotel which shows accouterments from the past. Within walking distance of Bourbon Street, Cafe Du Monde and the mighty Mississippi. Concierge service was excellent at arranging swamp tours, ghost tours and museums and also pointing out non tourist pockets that highlight how the locals population lives, eats and plays. The experience was excellent.

Hotel was nice and clean (except for the pool) but service was subpar. I forgot something in my room before I checked out. I called 2 hours later, no one saw it. I stopped by a few hours after that and anyone I talked to only wanted to pass on the problem to someone else--still no results. The maids must make out like bandits there with no repercussions.

Excellent old-fashioned hotel, as expected from a WA property. Stay would be enhanced by having coffee/tea making facility in the room, as well as availability of an Internet connection free of charge - surely this could be covered by the not inconsiderable nightly room rates. The noise emanating from the Domenica restaurant was such that it discouraged my wife and I from dining there - a pity given John Besh's reputation although one wonders how much personal attention he can give to each of his numerous ventures. Certainly would stay again.

We stayed here with you sons and all really enjoyed ourselves. From its location we were able to walk to anywhere in the French Quarter and over to the Aquarium. The decor is amazing! One of the best hotels we've stayed in! Loved the history and charm without feeling dated!

Our stay here was wonderful. The hotel is beautiful, clean and welcoming. The staff are knowledgable and helpful and the room was perfect in every way. We will definitely be returning soon and can't wait to come back for the jazz music and great food right there at the hotel.

I love this hotel! I have stayed here several times since it reopened as a WA. I did so again on my last visit to NOLA and was pleased again. The hotel is a beautifully restored architectural master piece from the lobby to the bar to your room! The staff are total professionals: valet, bellman, front desk, housekeeping, wait/tender staff and turn down service.
My room this time was a two room suite, the rooms are about the size of a racket ball court with 1 and half bathrooms. I was traveling for business and there was more than ample room to spread out and do work. Everything is top notch: linens, TV, furniture, and refrigerator.

The bar and restaurants are always good! The bar is worth a visit just to see the murals. Also, check out the antique floor clock in the lobby, truly a rare French example from the late 19th Century.
The hotel is in a great location, close to the French Quarter, CBD and a short walk to the Warehouse/Convention center. Easy access off of the interstate as well. I’ve traveled to NOLA about 30 times in my life and this is my favorite hotel!
