New York's Iconic Midtown Hotel
If you ever want to experience quintessential New York charm, look no further than the Roosevelt Hotel, named in honor of Theodore Roosevelt who served as the 26th president of the United States. Located on East 45th St., right by Madison Avenue, the hotel has been accommodating travelers and New Yorkers for decades. In fact, the New Year’s Eve tradition of playing “Auld Lang Syne” literally started at this hotel in 1929 (Guy Lombardo and his band used it as a segue between two radio programs during a live performance at the hotel, and they played the tune just after the clock hit midnight).
The hotel is only a half a mile from Times Square, making it easy for visitors to get to the tourist destination. Guests also receive 24-hour valet parking, Wi-Fi, free local calls, and gym access.
Patrons interested in hosting an event at the hotel can choose from 24 different meeting and event rooms. The hotel also provides event planning and catering access. Patrons that want to conduct a business meeting at the space get access to the business center complete with printers, fax machines, video conferencing equipment, and direct line phones.
The Roosevelt Hotel’s Grand Ballroom is a New York City landmark decorated with Tiffany chandeliers and iron-laced balconies. Perfect for corporate galas or weddings, the event space holds 1,000 patrons. Guests can also convene at the swanky Terrace Ballroom or the 3,038 square-foot Palm Room.
The entire hotel boasts over 1,000 rooms including 52 suites such as the Governor’s Suite, a private apartment with two bedrooms, a living room, dining room, and kitchenette area - which was used by Thomas E. Dewey in the famous 1948 presidential election when he was running for office against Harry S. Truman.
