Expert Review

This nearly 90-year-old Midtown landmark debuted rooftop bar, Mad 46, in summer 2008. The slender strip on high affords western city views, a casual ambiance (scattered umbrellas and wood benches and tables make up the simple décor), cool cocktails, and grub from the Roosevelt Grill downstairs. Aside from the fresh Hampton-esque flair on the 19th floor, the rest of the hotel is quite the contrast with rooms and public areas sticking to a classic Old World-meets-New York ambience. The impressive, massive lobby boasts neoclassical architecture with gilded accents and captures the essence of the hotel’s heritage. Catering to business travelers with plenty of meeting and event space, including the Grand Ballroom, one of New York’s few remaining traditional ballrooms, the hotel is always bustling with convention-goers or the gangs of tourists eager to pursue their day in the big city. Rooms are simple and fairly staid compared to the grand public spaces, but with rates averaging around $250/night, who cares?! The Roosevelt is a great value hotel for Manhattan and the location, just steps from Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Center, and the Museum of Modern Art, is hard to beat.
