This was my first trip to New Orleans and I am happy I chose to stay at the the Roosevelt. It is a magnificent Hotel; a true Southern Gem. The architecture and interior design are well appointed and welcoming. Every time I walked into the lobby I was happy to be there. From the ceiling and it's chandeliers to the walls to the floor to the floral arrangements, it is simply lovely and delightful.
The staff were lovely as well. From the moment I stepped out of the taxi I was greeted by a warm smile from the bellman and then by Crystal at the desk. Both were genuine in their greeting and professional in their manner.
My room and bath were equally as well appointed as the lobby. The bed was comfortable and the robes are so cozy. I was able to see the Mississippi river from my window. That was a treat.
The Concierge; Don recommended two of the most wonderful restaurants I have ever eaten. He was helpful with all other kinds of recommendations as well. He has such a pleasant way about him. He made me feel at ease and he welcomed me to The Roosevelt like he would welcome someone into his own home. He gets it...True Southern Hospitality; there is nothing like it and I was the lucky recipient!
My only negative and it really isn't such a negative is that the windows do not open. I understand it is a safety issue but there are hotels where the windows open 6 inches and have a security mechanism that will not allow you to open them any more.
i look forward to returning to such a wonderful city and to The Roosevelt! Thank you again.
