From the moment guests step into the Roosevelt’s breathtaking lobby, they will likely feel as if they’ve been whisked away to a grand ball from a bygone era. Named for President Theodore Roosevelt, the hotel was erected in 1924 and completed a two-year, $65 million renovation in 1997, which focused on revamping the 1,015 guest rooms. Those staying at the hotel are now treated to sofa chairs, ergonomic desk chairs, and Internet-capable wiring. Still, the highlight of the Roosevelt remains the architecture itself: The Italian Renaissance-style building occupies a full city block just north of Grand Central Terminal and contains an oval-shaped Palm Room complete with a sky-mural ceiling. Lavish hotel ballrooms and meeting spaces are equipped to host events for anywhere from 20 to 800 people.


Proximity to numerous attractions and subway lines.


The Roosevelt is a tourist attraction in and of itself, so the main floor has a constant influx of people.

Claim to Fame
Guy Lombardo did his New Year’s Eve broadcast here.

This midtown landmark evokes old-world elegance. The wide array of event spaces range from the gilded, chandeliered Grand Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 400 guests, to the smaller Terrace Ballroom, which holds 175. Catering is in-house, starting from $175 per guest.
