Historical Traveler Reviews The Roosevelt Hotel New York City
Great Value, Nice Room
We stayed May 2 through May 5, 2003. The room was immaculate and quite spacious. The beds were very comfortable with good sheets. Plenty of hot water, good water pressure. Staff was prompt, friendly and helpful. Location is excellent. Stayed there in 2000; hotel is even better since the remodeling. Compared with other places we have stayed (Doral Park Avenue and Radisson), this is far and away the best place to stay. Would recommend the Roosevelt to anyone.
We stayed in November 2002. Booked through hotels.com. Next time will deal directly with The Roosevelt. Saves a few dollars, but had some check-in trouble.The room was small but nice, and The Roosevelt was close to everything we wanted to see.Great bar! Awesome food, and very very very nice people.I can't wait to go back again. Next time I'll splurge for a suite for some extra space.Try it you'll be very pleased!
Nice hotel, but ...
Went to NYC for our 20th. Hotel is in wonderful location, close to Grand Central, Rockefeller, not too far from Times Square. Hotel service left a lot to be desired. Requested non-smoking room, didn't get it. Couldn't sleep all night because of smokey smell (got in at midnight, too much trouble to change room at that time). Asked for different room next morning & were told that room will be ready by 3 pm. Came back at 6 pm, no room. Front desk not very nice or helpful. Cable was out for over 24 hours. Booked thru Travelocity (so rooms were prepaid), felt hostage to the hotel--couldn't move out without losing money.
Very nice experience!
Excellent location, easy to walk to (even with luggage!) from Grand Central Station. A 24-hour store next door, which was a nice convenience. We arrived early and were given a room. Staff was helpful, friendly and courteous. A good experience.
Loved it !
Stayed here in April 2003. The hotel is a very high standard - the staff are all very friendly and efficient. Perfect location for 5th Avenue etc. I will definitely return to this hotel next time. (The Jennifer Lopez movie Maid in Manhattan was partially filmed here).
Great Hotel, Greater location for the price
Great Hotel, not one complaint. After much searching on the net, decided on the Roosevelt Hotel, seemed to be one of the few that was reaonably priced with good reviews. Great location, soooo close to Times Square, Rockerfellar Plaza, Shopping on 5th and Madison.
Middle of everything
this hotel is great its walking distance to almost all the major attractions and if its to far to walk grand central is a half block away. There is a 24 hour store just to the side of the front entrace that has everything you want. The look of the hotel is great but the rooms are kind of small ....but hey I was hardly in the room so no problem there. the concierge service was great only sometimes the line was long... the only 2 problems i had was on check in the doorman was allitle pushy looking for his tip and on check out we aranged a limo for 4am and a town car showed up at first told we had to take 2 cars at $45 each instead of the 60 we were promised 4 of us squeezed into 1 car ....but in all it was a great stay....
A perfect hotel for a perfect New York experience
I recently went to New York on the 28th of February with some friends for the weekend. We arrived at the Roosevelt about an hour before check in and our rooms were already available. The staff was great, and the hotel was absolutely beautiful. Times square is about 3 blocks away and the shopping experience was just around the corner. I will definetly stay at the Roosevelt again when I visit New York.
Good experience in the heart of NYC
I enjoyed my stay at he Roosevelt. Great location, half a block from the Grand Central Station, walking distance to the Theatre district. Historic Hotel, tradition meeting place for Republicans in past decades. The clock in the lobby was a meeting place in the 20s on for the "cafe society." Not the newest hotel in the city, but a hotel that gives you the "New York" experience.
Good location & value
This hotel is a good reliable pick with an excellent mid-town location. I have stayed here on business 3 times. On my first visit, my room wasn't ready yet & they upgraded me to a suite. Needless to say, the regular rooms are smaller, but still comfortable and the service was good. It is an old hotel, but still a good value for the money in Manhattan.

... decided instead of getting back on the bus, we would walk for a while. Well, we basically walked the rest of the tour all the way back to Guy's American Kitchen Bar at 220 W 44th St, which is one of Guy Fieri's own restaurants. Just unbelievable food and service. We then spent about two hours just walking on Broadway doing people watching. Then it was off to our bus stop to get our ride back to our hotel. We were exhausted and ready to move on to something a lot less ...
... cab to our hotel Four Points Mid-Town 40th Street. Driving in New York is crazy the taxi drivers going in and out almost hitting people walking across the street. The cost of the taxi was $60.00.
The hotel room was small but we knew this ahead of time as most New York City hotel rooms are just like Europe. However you are not in New York to stay in your hotel room anyways.
We decided to walk around and see ...
... We ate lunch under the Manhattan Bridge called Archways. Needless to say our conversation was not in full swing.... The rumblings were immense. We Visited Jacques Torres chocolates, no samples!!!!and as it was quiet a walk back over the bridge decided not to shop. sorry chocolate lovers. Highlight......We took a photo of each other beginning the walk so Deb decided to ask " a tall, dark, handsome man " to take a photo of us at the end.........the tall, dark, handsome man just ...
... orders to the wrong tables but all in all everyone seemed not to be too upset.
We then took a bus uptown and hopped off half way down Central Park and walked the rest of the way back . Of course it wouldn't be right to leave New York without everyone buying a souvenir so we made a detour to Bloomingdales so Steve could pick up a couple of Polo Shirts ...
