Editor’s Review of The Roosevelt New Orleans

There's a long history to all of the hotels in New Orleans, but perhaps the most storied hotel is The Roosevelt New Orleans. It seems that everyone in the city -- or anyone who has stayed at the hotel -- has a link to the property, whether it be a friend who works there, grandparents who met there, or fond memories of the hotel's famous Teddy Bear Teas, hosted each holiday season.

The hotel first opened in 1893, quickly becoming famous for its entertainment venues and attracting the likes of Ray Charles, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, and other icons. In 1965, it became a Fairmont and remained as such until it was shuttered by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Following extensive renovations, it reopened as an
... more ultra-luxurious Waldorf Astoria, with more grandeur and charm than ever before. Interested in the hotel's history? Take a complimentary tour at 2 p.m. on Saturdays.

Today, The Roosevelt continues to attract people from all over the world, including families, who come to enjoy its spacious accommodations, lovely onsite dining options (be sure to try a pastry at Teddy's Cafe, or even make one with the head pastry chef!) and Teddy Bear Teas at the holidays. Kids can even send letters to Santa through the hotel's old-fashioned mailbox system.

The Roosevelt is located just off of Canal Street, the main drag in New Orleans, putting guests close to the streetcar line (an iconic experience in itself), as well as the French Quarter, just a few blocks away. less

The hotel offers a total of 504 accommodations, 379 of which are guestrooms and 125 of which are suites. All accommodations are elegant and luxurious, yet offer all the comforts of home for families. All rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs (including one in bathrooms), bathrobes, safes, mini-bars, and alarm clocks with MP3 connections.

Kids can also be welcomed with in-room snacks, hopscotch or even tents for an additional fee (request in advance). Cribs, rollaway beds ($50 per night), and connecting rooms are available upon request. Many guestrooms have shower/tub combos in bathrooms.

Deluxe Rooms
Deluxe Rooms are equipped with one king, one queen, or two queen beds.

Superior Rooms
Superior Rooms offer better views than Deluxe Rooms, and come with one king or two queen beds.

King Suites
King Suites feature a separate bedroom with a king bed, and a living area; some living areas come with sleeper sofas, allowing a family of four to comfortably sleep and enjoy a little privacy from each other.

Luxury Suites
The Luxury Suites are more like apartments! Each one has a separate dining space, living area, and bedroom with a king bed and full bathroom. There's also a queen sleeper sofa in the living area. This room can also connect to a Deluxe Queen Room or Superior Queen Room -- perfect for families traveling with a nanny or grandparents!

Astoria Suites
These rooms vary from 800 to 1,350 square feet in size, and feature extra-luxurious amenities-- clawfoot tubs and large bay windows, for example. There are just six of these secluded rooms, which sleep up to four guests in a private king bedroom and sleeper sofa in the living area. The bathroom also has a separate shower in addition to the tub.

Waldorf Suites
This room is fantastic for entertaining, but just as good for family stays. It has a separate king bedroom, a living space with a sleeper sofa, and a dining area with seating for six. The bathroom has a shower/tub combination.

Presidential Suites
The ultimate option at The Roosevelt, Presidential Suites deliver gratuitous space (1,200 to 1,900 square feet), with separate seating and dining areas. These rooms are equipped with one king bed and best for couples, but they can connect to other rooms for families. You could also order a rollaway bed or crib to the room.
