We found the Roosevelt by searching for 4 star hotels in NYC on Priceline. You take a chance, purchasing a no refund hotel (unnamed) in a certain area. Price was good for New York and we were pleasantly surprised.
The outside of the Roosevelt is unassuming, easily overlooked. Check-in was easy, no hassle with the "we don't have your reservation, how did you book it" stuff. Clerk said she gave us a free upgrade.
Ambiance in the lobby was old New York, well preserved. You could see it being used as a back-drop for a 1930's movie. Our room on the fourth floor near the elevator was small but adequate and clean. Same for bathroom, 1980's bathtub, etc but just fine. This is a room for tourists who are out all day and into the night. Slept well. No street noise.They have room service but no coffee-maker in room.
Four restaurants here. I went downstairs in the a.m.to what was probably a bar at night for coffee (Starbucks). They had muffins, croissants, yogurt/fruit cups there and comfortable chairs to read the newspaper (for sale across the lobby).
Lobby filled with tour groups - teenagers, oldies, etc.
Called the front desk and checked out by phone. Easy to get cab on street (Madison Ave). Doorman whistled one in immediately.
Convenient, no hassle place. We'd stay here again.
