Imagine sitting in a fin-de-siecle drawing room. Chandeliers hang from impossibly high ceilings, and paneled walls are adorned with oil paintings. This classical setting can be found in 21st-century Midtown Manhattan at the Roosevelt Hotel, 45 East 45th Street, which blends classic New York flair with contemporary comforts.
About the Hotel
Named after President Theodore Roosevelt and opened at the height of the Jazz Age, the hotel has witnessed much of New York's history firsthand. While maintaining its century-old grandeur, the Roosevelt has modernized tastefully. Vacationers can use its 24-hour fitness center, and all rooms provide temperature control, flat-screen HD TVs and wireless internet (for a small fee). Business travelers have all the essentials to work in comfort, with a padded chair, desk and DC wall plugs, desk lamp and laptop-size safe. Guests can unwind in the old-world atmosphere of the Madison Club Lounge or dine at the Roosevelt Grill, which serves traditional American fare.
One of the best rooftop bars in Midtown, it's hard to leave the Roosevelt's mad46 terrace, where refreshing drinks are accompanied by stunning views. Those who do venture outside, however, can easily reach Times Square, the Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden and the Broadway theater district, which are all within one mile of the hotel's front steps. More intrepid travelers can delve into the neighborhood's plentiful ethnic restaurants and art galleries.KAYAK
