“Don't stay anywhere else in Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

1st there is a Catholic church right across the street so that is a huge plus!

The traditional feel and historic location feed your excitement for staying at this hotel.

The service is great at the bar and front desk. The restaurant and coffee shop need some attention to service standards.

Can't think of why you wouldn't want to stay here over any other downtown hotel.

I have never stayed in a place that was this accommodating. From the time you drive up, they make you feel special. Everyone was so polite and helpful. Randy helped us with our luggage and everything else we wanted to know about the city, he was there for us. Such a nice man. Great location for almost everything you wanna do. So much within walking distance. The beds were AMAZING!...so comfortable! I look forward to staying here again.

Impressed with the friendly and helpful staff, beautiful rooms. Lots of history. My 23 year old daughter with Asperger's is very friendly and has a unique way of looking at things and does not always follow social norms or cues. Every member of the staff went out of their way to make her feel very comfortable and special. Very highly recommended!

My (20 year old) daughter and I just returned from a 4 day stay. This hotel was AMAZING! The service 10 stars and it's location, EXCELLENT! If you are a new visitor to the area, make sure you stop by the concierge's desk and speak with Don Starr. He made our trip PERFECT. He is extremely knowledgeable of the area, was attentive to what my daughter and I wanted to experience, and took the time to ensure we knew exactly where the cab driver needed to take us to make our trip memorable. He made several reservations for us, and his advice for "restaurants" was spot on. We stayed in a "standard queen" room during our stay. These rooms are small but cozy and beautifully decorated. Having said this, if you are staying for several days and sharing this room with a guest, you might consider upgrading to a larger room as two sets of rollers, makeup bags, shoes, and suitcases will make for a cramped experience. But, for our short stay it was perfect. The hotel gym was very nice and visits were complimentary. Brunch and breakfast were EXCELLENT at the hotel restaurant and the service was incredible. The coffee is fantastic at Teddy's and this deli is loaded with fabulous "eats." I just can't say enough about this hotel. We normally venture to New York for our mother daughter Christmas get aways, but the staff at the Roosevelt and this hotel's ambiance, history, and beauty in addition to the "liveliness" of this interesting city, have changed our minds.We will return here instead. You will not go wrong with a stay at the Roosevelt!

Room Tip: This is a PARTY city, so if noise is a problem for you book a room on a higher floor. Also, queen si...

I can certainly understand why this hotel is consistently rated as excellent--our two room luxury suite was perfect. The claw foot tub and high end bath products are a spa experience in themselves! Our suite was on the top floor directly across from the beautiful church--we heard the bells regularly and loved the sound--they just complimented a heavenly experience.

Room Tip: I recommend the luxury suite--we had room service several times and the extra room and eating area w...

The hotel is a bit pricey, especially during Essence Fest. Book early to get better rates. Expect to prepay hotel room and incidentals upfront rather than at checkout. We stayed in one of the Walforf Suites, spacious and well appointed. Extra towels are automatic if more than 2 women are checking in, extra towels just kept coming. Beautiful well appointed suite. I don't want to stay in any place that isn't as nice as my home and this place fit the bill. Except the pool was a bit small and drinks were slow. The Waldorf is right off Canal so the location is excellent. Close to Walgreens, beauty supply stores, shopping, trolley cars and right outside the French Quarter but close enough without being too close.

We saw Niles Rodgers in the lobby so that was a treat. He put on an excellent show at Essence. I would stay here again, now that I know what to expect. Pricey but in the end it was worth it for me. Domenica restaurant has good happy hour, the other two restaurants were adequate and not too pretentious. Staff was courteous.

Room Tip: Choose tower 2, Get a suite, get ice from Walgreens and don't open the bar or they will charge...

Arrived at hotel and everyone was quick to help ( I like to do things myself ) was allowed a early check in which was great. It was fast and effortless.
Stayed in one of the suites and upon opening door the room was impressive. The pool area was inviting although it was empty when I went.
The location is excellent easy access to everything.
My one issue, the shower had a plastic piece at the bottom that was broke ( a simple fix ) called it in and after 2 days it still wasn't fixed so of course the floor stayed wet. I even lost a bet, I said it would be fixed by the time we made it back.. I lost.
But it wasn't enough to change my opinion of this place. Great place !

Room Tip: From what I gather tower 2 you can't hear the church bells. I was in tower 2 and if it's wor...
