As a Hilton Honors member, it was really a no-brainer to stay at the Roosevelt New Orleans. They offered a great double points package and we were even able to select an upgrade to a corner king. Reservations were easily made online!
Our flight landed early and we headed straight to the hotel in yucky weather. We expected to drop bags and change clothes in a downstairs bathroom, but to our surprise, we were quickly checked in, pleasantly greeted, and upgraded to our corner king room. Hooray!
Our room was perfect, on a quiet upper floor (the 8th). The corner king did afford a bit more space that we found well worth it. I thought the bed was amazing - soft sheets, comfy pillows, and clean as a whistle. The air conditioner also worked wonders. It could have only been better had the bathroom had a tub, but hey, there was a TV and plenty of space to house our toiletries. The closet was also spacious and I loved the robes that were provided.
I feel like I erroneously skipped past the beautiful lobby. My mouth dropped when I walked in - its so opulent, with the clock and glass chandeliers, as well as the elegant flower arrangements. Stunning.
We got excellent sleep all three nights, although a couple nights we were able to hear street noise from a garbage truck and/or sirens, but my white noise app worked like a charm to stamp it out!
We ordered room service one night and got a delicious pizza from the restaurant downstairs. Yum yum yum. Our rate included $50 credit to the bars and room service, so we spent it on that and enjoyed it.
I adored the live jazz in the bar downstairs, and of course, I whiled away a ton of time in the Sazerac. There were 2 weddings at the hotel that Saturday night and it was so fun seeing the wedding parties live it up. Just super cool.
Might I add that this is a terrific location? We walked to absolutely everything and back again. Its also close to a Walgreens and CVS, so should you forget something, its not far to pick it up.
Best of all is the service. In addition to our speedy check-in, I have to give kudos to the service staff. I realized a couple days after we got back that I left my jewelry in the safe. Although none of it was valuable, there were items that I had gotten from my world travels that could not be replaced. Not only had the hotel found it, they shipped it back to me, safe and sound. I truly expected to call and get a "Sorry, we looked, couldn't find it..." response, but was pleased as punch when they had not only found it, but eagerly agreed to ship it to me like it was not a problem at all. Classy classy classy.
I will definitely stay here again. Its a great value (especially if you can find a deal on the Hilton website!), the rest is superb, there is fun to be had in the hotel and right outside its doors, and you'll be treated like royalty. Heyo.
