The Roosevelt Hotel and the land on which it sits are filled with history. In the 1830s the area was home to the state capitol, Charity Hospital, Christ Episcopal Church, and mansions of famed Louisianians of French and Spanish descent. In 1893, German immigrant, Louis Grunewald, opened the lavish hotel and named it “The Grunewald”. In 1965 the hotel was acquired and officially renamed “The Fairmont”, but the hotel continued to be called The Roosevelt by many locals.
From the moment guests enter The Roosevelt, they know they have entered a special place where elegance and luxury abound; a place filled with history yet equipped for today’s traveler. Visiting The Roosevelt Hotel is something that you do not want to miss!
