Holiday Season is Officially Here

lobbyxmas

You know it’s time to start planning your holiday events when “Winter Wonderland” starts playing on the radio. Every year it feels like this season sneaks up on me. One minute I’m picnicking in Prospect Park, then it’s buying turkeys and getting the holiday decorations out of storage. Where does the time go!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the start the season is officially in full swing. In addition to planning the festivities for family and friends, there are a lot of you out there that are also planning your company’s annual celebration. It can be a lot to do.

One o the most important parts of planning a holiday celebration for your company is selecting a venue. Your venue sets the atmosphere for your event so it’s important to make a selection that suits your guests. At The Roosevelt Hotel, we offer two fabulous ballrooms, along with 23 additional function spaces that hosts events from an intimate 10 person dinner to a gathering of 800 people.

One of the best features of The Roosevelt Hotel during the holiday season is the decor. We pride ourselves on creating a classic, traditional setting for the holiday season. If you haven’t been to our lobby during this time, stop in and enjoy a delicious cocktail in either the Madison Club Lounge or our wine bar, Teddy’s Cellar, sit back, relax and take in the beauty of our amazing lobby. Our holiday decorations will be going up the November 26th!

Besides the atmosphere, Chef Rupert has put together an incredible selection of holiday menus for your holiday event. Take a peek at them here or listed below and then contact one of our Catering Sales Managers at catering@rooseveltnyc.com.

    Man on OUR Ledge

    sam-on-ledge

    Have you been wondering what all the commotion is outside The Roosevelt Hotel New York? Well, we have been very excited to be a filming location for an exciting new film from Summit Entertainment, called “Man on a Ledge”.

    Does that “ledge” look familiar? Yep, that’s us.

    Directed by Asger Leth, “Man on a Ledge” has a star studded cast including Sam Worthington (Avatar), Elizabeth Banks, Anthony Mackie, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Edward Burns and Kyra Sedgwick .

    The story follows an ex-cop and now wanted fugitive (Worthington) stands on the ledge of a NYC hotel (that’s us!) while a hard-living New York Police Department hostage negotiator (Banks) tries to talk him down. The longer they are on the ledge, the more she realizes that he might have an ulterior objective.

    It’s been an exciting and fun experience to host a movie shoot here at the hotel. We all can’t wait to see the film in its final edit!
