The Roosevelt New Orleans continues the tradition of offering a spectacular New Orleans holiday wonderland as luxurious and memorable as this historic property for locals and guests to experience during the holiday season.
This year, the Waldorf Wonderland lobby returns bigger and better as the grand lobby is transformed into a canopy of white birch branches and thousands of twinkling lights. The lobby also will be lined with Christmas trees decorated with bows and ornaments, poinsettias and other holiday-themed displays. The festive and free attraction is a favorite near and far and is open to the public.
The holiday delight, an attraction to all who visit New Orleans during the holiday season, has been a New Orleans tradition since the 1930s and returns again from Nov. 28 through Jan. 6.
Due to popular demand, The Roosevelt’s Teddy Bear Tea returns with more dates than last year. The event, a family favorite during the holidays, hosts guests and their children for a special tea party featuring children’s menu items, as well as traditional tea, a cash bar and menu for adults, plus complimentary free-flowing champagne. Each child will also receive a teddy bear upon arrival. Entertainment will include storytellers and trumpeters, as well as appearances by Santa, his elves and Mrs. Claus. Framed, commemorative photos with Santa will be available at an additional cost.
