Stayed at the Roosevelt hotel for two nights and had booked a basic king bedroom. It wasn't enormous but a good size with high ceilings and everything was top notch. The shower in the bathroom was particularly good and the bed was great and bed linen superb. There was a TV in the bathroom but, to be honest, I would have preferred a coffee maker in the room. To order a coffee from room service would have cost the price of the coffee plus the tax, plus a $4.50 charge plus a tip - someone suggested on a previous post that it would cost around $17 !
The coffee bar has a daily happy hour, from 3 'til 6 I think, where pizzas and drinks are half price - very popular.
Valet parking was $42+tax+tip per day - extortionate. We parked our car at Lasalle Road hospital car park which is less than a ten minute walk away for $6.25 per 24 hour period.
Bathrobe and slippers are provided and, nice touch here, small slippers for ladies and larger ones for men.
The hotel is located in the business district but right next door to the French Quarter - only a few minutes drive from Interstate 10 ........ literally. Great location.
The rooftop pool area is lovely, and large considering the downtown location. All in all we had a great stay and would certainly use the hotel again.
