Opening in December 1893, the legendary Roosevelt Hotel, a proud member of the Waldorf Astoria brand, has represented everything that makes New Orleans the most incredible destination.  With 504 elegant rooms, of which 125 are suites the Roosevelt New Orleans has welcomed Presidents, Royalty and New Orleans’ own kings and queens of Carnival. In the 1930’s the hotel dominated the music scene with the world famous Blue room performances of Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Tina Turner and the longest single venue engagement of the Glen Miller band. Through the years the most enduring institution in the hotel is the Sazerac bar, proud namesake of the official drink of New Orleans and home to the yearly Storming of the Sazerac, a recreation of the 1949 day when women normally admitted only on Mardi Gras day demanded and received equal status and the right to drink our famous concoctions.  We look forward to hosting you on this, our 125th birthday and invite you to share in the history of The Roosevelt New Orleans.
