Absolutely enjoyed our 6 night stay! The initial room in Tower 2 we were offered was too tight for our taste and they graciously moved us to a more spacious room in Tower 1 which we were satisfied with. The beds are great and the room was very clean. The service was impeccable throughout our stay (we used the concierge, cab service, the bars, the restaurants, the UPS service which was terrific - all wonderful). Kimberly at the Fountain Lounge was fantastic, as was Fred at the UPS office…..and not to slight anyone as they all treated us extremely well. We would definitely return and highly recommend.

From the moment you are greeted by the red carpet, you travel back in time and are treated in total luxury. Antiques, chandeliers and history throughout the lobby. Walk to Bourbon Street. When you walk back, collapse into the most comfy bed. The staff is friendlier than you've ever experienced - good southern hospitality.

The hotel was extraordinary and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable, the decor was beautiful and the service was excellent. This will always be my hotel of choice when visiting New Orleans. The location was just right in distance to the French Quarter and all the festivities in the Canal street area. Well worth the money spent and the food was magnificent.

This hotel was the most beautiful and wonderful hotel I have ever stayed in for work or personal. We upgraded our reservation to a King Suite and I will say it was worth every cent and actually more in my opinion. Our room was as much a part of our vacation as the food, history and sights of New Orleans. Kudos to our concierges Ray and Cody and to Sally in the gift shop. I would never stay anywhere but here in New Orleans.

Room Tip: after you book, you are given a chance to upgrade - DO IT!

The rooms are fantastic. Though since it is an older hotel that has been renovated there isn't a "traditional" room. All rooms are a bit different in size and setup. The bathrooms are large and ceilings are high. The location couldn't be better. A short walk to the quarter but without the noise or craziness.

My wife, friends and I must have stayed at the other Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans--the really good one. Our experience was excellent although I realize the hotel might not be good for everyone. We were upgraded to a suite and our friends were upgraded to a superior room. Given the age of the structure the rooms were in amazingly good shape. Not scratches, bumps or dents. The internet service was good but having to log on each time you used a device became annoying. Like other Hilton properties they still charge for the internet unless you are a member of their loyalty group. Not acceptable. Housekeeping and turn-down service were excellent and the cleaning staff was very friendly. The front desk was a bit under staffed but the other lobby personnel were plentiful and very good at their jobs. Since it was so warm during our stay we used the hotel rooftop pool several times. It is not a lap pool and is not suitable for serious swimming when crowded but it helps guests avoid the heat of the city. Service at the pool bar was very good--friendly and professional.

This is an old hotel with old style furnishings so it might not appeal to anyone looking for a 'modern' hotel experience. But given the relatively modest cost of our rooms and the excellent quality of the services and facilities we would certainly stay there again and recommend it to our friends.
