U.S. News Review

A hotel can be old, but it certainly can't look old. Case in point: The historic Roosevelt, a classic among New Orleans' accommodations, had begun to show a little wear before Hurricane Katrina. But the owners took advantage of that disastrous setback to close, renovate and resuscitate their fledgling stamp on luxury. Now part of Waldorf Astoria's esteemed collection, the Roosevelt New Orleans has been able to preserve its legendary status while keeping up with the evolving standard of luxury. Recent lodgers gush over the comfortable rooms and their high-quality furniture (leather chairs and couches, in some cases), and appreciate modern features like the high-speed Internet access and flat-screen TVs. The legendary Blue Room lounge and Sazerac Bar are very reminiscent of the happening spots that they were in the days of Louis Armstrong and Huey P. Long. You can find the Roosevelt New Orleans right off Canal Street, on Baronne. And if you're a Hilton HHonors member you can earn or redeem reward points here for perks.
