We normally do Hilton family hotels and were able to stay at The Roosevelt for three nights on points - so the price was right. The Roosevelt is an old beautiful hotel filled with antiques and rococo furnishings that we enjoyed. We were upgraded to a king suite so that was great, too. For the down side, our bathroom was tiny and there was no counter space to set things. We like to have a nice cup of coffee or two when we wake up and many hotels have free coffee set ups in the lobby which we welcome or, of course, a coffee maker in your room, but the Roosevelt had neither. So, we were disappointed when we were forced to use a Starbucks-like cafe for our coffee fix to the tune of $9 for two large cups. The coffee was good but we would've appreciated a coffee bar in our room or in the lobby. The location is ok - we normally stay in the Quarter near Jackson Square so it was a little hike to the heart of the Quarter but was ok. I shouldn't complain about the cost but the car parking was also ridiculous. We enjoyed our stay in this classic hotel but will probably opt for the Quarter next time.
