Known for the historic Sazerac Bar
Rooms facing Canal Street can experience late-night noise
A hotel can be old, but it certainly shouldn't look old. Case in point: The historic Roosevelt, a classic among the lodging offerings of New Orleans, had begun to show a little wear before Hurricane Katrina. After that setback, the owners used it as an opportunity to close, renovate and resuscitate their fledgling stamp on luxury. 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 (for a fee) and two flat-screen TVs. The staff members also win over recent patrons for being exceptionally accommodating. What's more, the legendary Sazerac Bar is reminiscent of the happening spot it was in the days of Louis Armstrong and Huey P. Long. You can find The Roosevelt New Orleans right off Canal Street, on Roosevelt Way. And if you're a Hilton Honors member, you can earn or redeem reward points here for perks.

  • AAA/CAA Four Diamond Awards 2019



This grandiose Waldorf property is fairly regal throughout, but the movie-star glamorous, block-long lobby is positively stunning, and the history and pedigree equally impressive.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



The Sazerac Bar maintains an old school lustre and talent for making classic concoctions. Step into the walnut-paneled rooms — lined with Paul Ninas murals and outfitted with just the right tinkle of soft jazz and low lighting — and you’ll be swept up in its legendary air, too.

Fodor's Choice

Condé Nast Traveler


It's at the more expensive end of New Orleans accommodations, but the levels of luxury and attention to detail are well worth it.
