As of September 22nd, 2014 The Roosevelt Hotel has been in operation for 90 Years!
There’s a lot in a name. Names hold power, tradition, history, and meaning. A name is something passed down from generation to generation, telling us where we came from and who we are. We at the Roosevelt are proud of who we are, as well as our namesake. That’s why for our 90th anniversary we invite guests with the last name Roosevelt to book one night for $90 here at our hotel through March 31st, 2015.
Since opening in 1924 the “Grand Dame of Madison Avenue” has seen a lot. Through the years our 1,015 renovated rooms have housed many historical figures. Guy Lambardo first began broadcasting “Auld Lang Syne” from our Roosevelt Grill, Governor Thomas Dewey erroneously announced his victory over Harry S. Truman from our halls, and private guests entered into our midst by way of a secret underground passage connecting the hotel with Grand Central Station. The Roosevelt has also been featured in many Hollywood productions like “Mad Men,” “Man on a Ledge,” “Men in Black 3,” and “Maid in Manhattan.”
Whether they dine at our 19th floor rooftop bar or in the street side-restaurant, or simply take in the neo-classical architecture of the lobby, the Roosevelt offers everything our guests’ desire. No matter the occasion, the Roosevelt has served at the forefront of the New York hospitality for the last 90 years, and we plan to continue for the next 90 and beyond.
Celebrate 90 years with us, and see the impact that a powerful name can have.
