In a city that has more than its share of historic hotels, the Roosevelt, which originally opened in 1893, is the only New Orleans hotel that truly deserves the title of grande dame. Generations of locals have fond memories of the Christmas pageant held annually in the hotel's marble-clad lobby, and many grandparents recall learning to dance at the Blue Room nightclub or sipping their first cocktail in the Sazerac Bar. After years under the Fairmont umbrella, the 504-room hotel underwent a $145-million renovation following Hurricane Katrina and reopened in late 2009 as part of the Waldorf Astoria Collection. The updated rooms are appropriately luxe and borderline old-fashioned: In the mini suites, overstuffed couches and leather armchairs now face plasma-screen TVs, for example. Fans of a luxurious bath should be forewarned, however—the architectural footprint limits some rooms to a shower-only bathroom. On-site dining has been seriously improved with the addition of Chef John Besh's Domenica, a rustic regional Italian eatery run by his outstanding protégé Alon Shaya. The reborn Blue Room and Sazerac draw in plenty of nostalgia-seekers, as well as folks looking to create new memories in this New Orleans landmark.—Pableaux Johnson
