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

"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
"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."
