From its glittering lobby to each beautiful, traditionally furnished guest room, one of the truly iconic New Orleans hotels offers a grand experience. A downtown anchor for more than a century, the hotel was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Its glam is back, the legendary Sazerac Bar is a top spot for cocktails, and the Blue Room serves a sumptuous Sunday jazz brunch. There's a 12,000-square-foot world-class European spa and fitness center as well. Also attached
is the great John Besh restaurant, Domenica.

My partner and I stayed in the hotel over Christmas. It was so beautiful and enchanting with its festive flavour. The lights sparkled with illuminescence whilst the inhouse food was cooked to perfection. The concierge are always friendly and eager to help. As an out-of-towner we were embraced in the South with open arms. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful old school, romantic hotel with plush couches and egyptian cotton soaked king size
beds right in the heart of the French Quarter. Beignet anyone?

We visited the Roosevelt over the summer and was advised by our concierge, August, to come back during the Christmas Holiday's for the Teddy Bear Tea. First of all, you should come to the Roosevelt during the Christmas Holiday's even if you don't have children because the decorations are magical and will put anyone in the Christmas spirit! The Roosevelt does an equally amazing job of transforming a ballroom into Santa's workshop. There really are
no words to describe the Teddy Bear Tea decorations so I would advise you to visit my "chicfamilytravels" travel blog to see pictures at http://chicfamilytravels.com/2012/12/29/christmas-at-the-roosevelt-in-new-orleans/ There are many character appearances including Mrs. Claus, Rudolph, a Snow Princess, and of course Santa himself! The little ones will love the endless hot choclate and the parents will love the ever-flowing mimosas. Yes, they really do keep your glass full whether you ask them too or not! The little ones will leave with a Roosevelt Teddy Bear so they can always remember their magical visit to the Teddy Bear Tea at the Roosevelt.
