An unexpected surprise/discovery!
Posted Feb 20, 2017
Wanted to relive memories from long ago while still a child when my family would visit New York City and we always stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel. The memories of it's interior beauty and the evening dinners at the Roosevelt Grill listening to the music of Guy Lombardo and his Canadians have lasted a lifetime in my memory of 75 years. This past weekend my family and I returned to New York to spend three wonderful days and nights at the Roosevelt. What a wonderful experience it was! The rooms are excellent and the bathrooms are over stuffed with thick turkish bath towels and amenities. The beds and linens were absolutely superb. The house cleaning staff were the best. The morning breakfast buffets are not to be missed! I have never enjoyed a breakfast buffet as much as the one served daily from 7 to 11 AM in the Roosevelt Grille. Don't let the $25.00 breakfast buffet charge discourage your feasting on the thick peppered bacon slices with crispy sausage links, fresh squeezed orange juice, richly roasted coffee, pastries galore, fresh fruits and berries, and lush surroundings plus such beautiful views of the surrounding people filled streets. Honestly, I expected only to find a few possible memories of the Roosevelt's past and found instead the past and the best of any of the present New York City hotels. Did I mention that it is in the heart of every place you would want to walk to and visit? Don't miss this under-rated gem! I know we are going to return again!
