Construction Underway!

It’s finally time!  The Roosevelt Hotel has been working diligently designing and selecting all the new furnishings for our anticipated guestroom “face lift” and we are excited to announce that it is fully underway!   

All of our 1,015 guestrooms and suites will be completely refreshed with scheduled completion by February 2012.  The hotel is getting a look that is new and fresh, but maintains our legendary heritage in the heart of Midtown!!

While we provide the finest contemporary amenities, the hotel’s suites and guest rooms will now be equipped with all new furniture, fixtures, carpeting and corridor carpeting, as well as new artwork in each room capturing historic images of The Roosevelt Hotel. We also will be adding a very chic red accent wall (some of us are really excited about that!)

The enhancements are designed to compliment the already restored interiors of the hotel, featuring signature architecture of the 1920s, particularly showcased in the grand lobby. To keep up with photos and upadates on this exciting project, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!  See more photos here!

We Remember

It is with respect and reverence that New York City honors the events of Sept. 11, 2001 and the nearly 3,000 lives lost on that day. Whether you’re a visitor or a lifetime resident, each of us has a personal connection to the events and remembers vividly where we were that day.

With a decade of strength and growth behind us this year our city has much to do to honor those affected by that day. This 10th anniversary will mark the official opening of The National 9/11 Memorial which will be dedicated on September 11, 2011 to the 9/11 attacks in a ceremony for victims’ families. The following day, it will open to the public on September 12, 2011 for visitors who have reserved advance passes.

The memorial features cascading waterfalls into two sunken pools, foot printing the mark of the Twin Towers. Within these walls, every name of the victims will have been etched in around the edges of the memorial.

With many ways to pay respects and honor this day in NYC, it will begin at the World Trade Center site at 8:46am on September 11, 2011, with four moments of silence will be observed to commemorate the four occurrences when each plane hit and each tower fell, beginning at 8:46 am. The site is located in downtown Manhattan between Vesey Street and Liberty Street off the West Side Highway, Ground Zero must be seen in person to be appreciated.

Share your stories, remembrance and respects with others by becoming a part of the 9/11 Memorial community online on their Facebook page.

The Staff and Management of The Roosevelt Hotel remembers and respects the lives lost on September 11, 2001 and those affected. We are proud to be in this community and the strength that surrounds it.
