Your Stay at a Legendary Hotel

Many hotels believe they have a memorable past, but it's few who can say their history is rooted in legends. It's even fewer who have had 80 miles of highway built just so the governor could get his favorite drink! The legend of Huey P. Long and the Airline Highway is just one ​of so many that define the Roosevelt’s brilliant foundation in the early 1900s.

Though this hotel has had many identities in the past, it was during The Roosevelt years that it became known as the beacon of luxury in the South. Now, after a $145 million restoration, it has been reborn with all the grandeur of old New Orleans and the modern amenities that exceed the standards of today's luxury hotels.

How to Get Around

To reach the hotel from the airport, you may use the airport shuttle which runs 24-hours a day. Upon arrival at the airport, guests can purchase tickets from the Airport Shuttle information desks. These desks are staffed 24-hours a day by informed, responsive tourism personnel who sell shuttle tickets, answer travel-related questions, and offer helpful visitor information about events throughout the city. Passenger vans arrive at and depart from the airport every 10 minutes. If you prefer, you may take a taxi for a flat rate.

Once at the hotel, New Orleans offers various other transportation services including a streetcar system, public buses, and ferries. Visitor passes are available at hotels and shopping areas. The pass entitles you to unlimited rides on all streetcar and bus lines. For additional transportation options, go to
