“Splendid Opulence”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

The Roosevelt is like the grand dame of NOLA. From the minute you walk it, it just exudes an understated elegance. I had the 1 BR suite, and it was fabulous; it even sports a 1/2 bath! The only draw back was it didn't have a bathtub.
Wonderful staff, and the Sazerac bar is great. A good place to get a bloody mary in the morning after a wild night. I'm booked there again in December, I've heard its Christmas decor is breataking.

A short business trip brought us to the elegant Waldorf Astoria. After reading for weeks all of the wonderful reviews about the hotel, my husband and I were thrilled when we finally arrived in New Orleans. Upon entering our superior room, we discovered several problems. After three calls to guest relations and the third staff member unreasonably refusing to connect us to a manager, my husband and I took a short walk to the Walgreens to purchase cleaning supplies to resolve the problem. As longstanding Hilton Honors members, for the first ever, we felt slighted.

Aside from our problem, the hotel is exquisite. We visited all the hotel restaurants and had room service. Each was fantastic! We required wireless internet access in our room, and it was satisfactory. The valet parking was super efficient as was the spa. We are planning a return trip during Thanksgiving.

Located just off if Canal Street at the edge of the French Quarter, the Waldorf is a great hotel. Beginning the moment you are greeted by the valet, you ate treated like royalty. The hotel is beautiful and walking through the grand foyer just makes you feel good. Excellent stay. My new favorite of the hotels in New Orleans.

There is nothing better than the elegance of Waldorf Astoria home away from home experience at the Roosevelt. With 5 years of hotel living in NO I spent the last three at my favorite. The Roosevelt in New Orleans is equal to or superior to all the hotels I have stayed from "The Waldorf" in NYC to upscales in Hawaii, Costa Rica, Italy, Key West and places beyond. None offers the friendly staff and elegance of the Roosevelt. It is indeed to total package to finest hotel living anywhere. Thank you to all of the staff and management, it was a great three years and although I am ending my NO journey I will remember the friendliness of each of you.

From check in to departure, the hotel staff went above and beyond to make me feel welcome. Upon arrival my wife and I were greeted and the check-inn agent even congratulated us on being pregnant. It was a very personal touch.

We did notice that one of the 2 free bottles of water in our room had been opened, probably by the previous guest and missed by housekeeping. The reason for the 5th star was because when I reported it and asked them to replace it, they went above and beyond, gave us 4 free bottles of water, and gave us two free drink coupons just for the inconvenience. It was not inconvenient, it was an easy mistake for anyone to make. I was so shocked by the service, I would have been perfectly happy with the 1 bottle being replaced.

The staff every time we exited offered to give us directions, and every time we returned welcomes us back, often by name which means a lot. Also the concierge asked us what we like and made restaurant recommendations based on our interests, while many hotels seem to steer us towards chains that give them kickbacks.

I was really impressed with the art collection in the lobby, and loved that it was local art specific to the hotel. The clock was fascinating and I loved reading about the mayors lock box and the milk jug. The Roosevelt is a very beautiful historic hotel.

It was a very personal experience, excellent service, and less than a block from the French Quarter.
