The Roosevelt Hotel

45 E. 45th St., at Madison Ave., New York, New York, 10017, USA

Named after Teddy, not Franklin, this Midtown icon just steps from Grand Central has an ornate lobby with cushy couches and an old-school bar detailed in heavy wood that makes the place feel like it's from another time, and it is—the property dates from 1924. Happily, the amenities don't hark back to that era, though rooms are a little tired: carpeting shows some wear and the art on the walls is chain-generic, but the beds do have pillow-top mattresses. Bathrooms are nice and big. The rooftop lounge, mad46, serves themed cocktails that include a "Teddy-tini."
