Learn about the many awards won here at The Roosevelt New Orleans in the past year.

2018 CNN, Top 20 of America’s Most Beautiful Hotels

From CNN:

"There may be newer and trendier hotels in New Orleans, but none can touch the beauty of The Roosevelt. The iconic property, opened in 1893, is reminiscent of a bygone era with its tiered crystal chandeliers, gold-gilded pillars and original floor mosaics -- discovered during renovations after Hurricane Katrina. Its 504 rooms are similarly aristocratic, with dark wood furnishings and rich fabrics. The hotel's legendary Sazerac Bar, located in the lobby, is the birthplace of the cognac-based cocktail, as its name suggests."

2018 Architectural Digest, 15 Most Beautiful Hotel Lobbies in the World

From Architectural Digest:

"A row of elegant chandeliers leads you through a luxurious marbled hallway to the concierge. The Roosevelt Hotel is the perfect mix of Southern style and old European elegance culminating in one spectacular lobby." 

 

2018 USA Today’s 10Best, #1 Best Hotel Bar, The Sazerac Bar

From USA Today 10Best:

"Named after the world's first mixed drink (according to some), The Sazerac Bar has been quenching New Orleans's thirst for decades. Located within The Roosevelt New Orleans, this classic space features an African walnut bar and murals by Paul Ninas; it was once a popular haunt of politician Huey P. Long."
