The Roosevelt Hotel Review

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 with heavy wood detailing that makes the place feel like it's from another time, and it should—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, the art on the walls is chain-generic, and the bedding is blah, but the beds do have pillow-top mattresses, and the bathrooms are nice and big. The rooftop lounge, mad46, serves themed cocktails that include a "Teddy-tini."

    Roosevelt

    we wanted a one night room in a nice central location in New York City, without spending a fortune. That combination is not easy to find in Manhattan, and I spent a great deal of time looking. We eventually found the Roosevelt, which met our needs well with great location.
