Vintage Roosevelt

roosevelt

Opened on September 22, 1924, The Roosevelt Hotel offered exquisite accommodations and phenomenal service to the 1100 guestrooms. The first glimpse into the heart of The Roosevelt Hotel was (and still is) the elegant and spacious lobby with varying levels of public space and, at that time, a passageway directly to Grand Central Station.

The Grand Ballroom was designed with romance in mind with high ceilings, balconies, original Tiffany chandeliers and a mural by Arthur Crisp with the Cinderella story as its theme. The timeless design is the perfect backdrop for any event from a wartime ship dance in 1920’s to a modern day wedding.

History lives at The Roosevelt Hotel. Take a trip back in time and look through these vintage photographs of the hotel.

For the Love of Baseball

Baseball season is in full swing and in celebration of the new CitiField and Yankee Stadium, The Roosevelt Hotel New York is offering a For Love of the Game experience.

Starting at a rate of $215, now through the end of baseball season, The Roosevelt Hotel will provide you with everything you need for the ultimate all-American baseball weekend. All the bases are covered from an exclusive pre-game tour of the stadium to an NYC food tour.

Here’s the deal…prior to arriving, you will receive ticket advice to make sure that you get the best tickets available within your price range for which ever game you prefer. Once that is set and you’re on your way, you will check into The Roosevelt Hotel, where you will find your baseball (for signing!) and a three day Metro Card. Then, you’ll meet up for the Food For Fans Tour and venture through the city for a real taste of New York. How? By subway of course, like any other New Yorker!

Next up, all of you baseball enthusiasts will journey to a pre-game tour of CitiField or Yankee Stadium to get a behind the scenes look from tour professionals who will guide you through New York baseball and the stadium’s history.

Not bad, right? This is the year to come to the Big Apple and experience these new stadiums. I have been to Citifield (yes, I am a Mets fan!) and the stadium is really amazing. I won’t divulge too much, you have to come and see it for yourself. Whether a Yankee fan, a Mets fan or just a baseball fan, this is a great experience.

Lady Liberty

lady-liberty

The Statue of Liberty has been a symbol of freedom and democracy since it was presented United States in 1886 by the people of France. Standing on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, it welcomes visitors, immigrants, and returning Americans traveling by ship (before we were jet set).

Since 9/11, Lady Liberty has been closed to the public due to security concerns, but beginning this July 4th, you will be able to hike up the 168 steps leading to the crown and its 25 windows. There is a restriction of only 10 people maximum, that will be able to occupy the crown at any time, allowing for 30 visitors an hour. The visitors that get to visit the 265-foot-high crown will be chosen by a lottery.

For the first time in nearly eight years we are able have one of the most awesome experiences in the world. Get up there while you can because in about two years, the statue is planned to be closed again for renovation.

Click HERE for a quick video by the Daily News’ Michael Daly that takes a tour of Lady Liberty’s crown.

Insider Tip:  The interior of the Statue of Liberty is typically 20 degrees hotter that outdoors (they shut down once it hits 90 degrees outside) and in high winds, the crown can sway up to 5 inches!!!
