The Story of the Roosevelt Hotel NYC 

The Story of The Roosevelt Hotel - New York
Step through the doors of the historic Roosevelt Hotel NYC and the magnificent ambience transports you back to the classic setting of New York City in the Roaring Twenties. Renowned as the "Grand Dame of Madison Avenue," this iconic hotel opened in 1924 and has been renovated to its original grandeur.
 
The Roosevelt Hotel has been a landmark on the Manhattan skyline since it  opened on September 22, 1924. Over the last 90 years , this elegant hotel has remained a true icon of New York City, welcoming guests from around the world. From the Roaring 20's and Prohibition, World War II and the Baby Boomers, Woodstock to music videos, and Y2K to smartphones, The Roosevelt Hotel has remained a quintessential New York City experience and a part of the cultural fabric of America.
 
Synonymous with the rich history of The Roosevelt Hotel, Guy Lombardo and his orchestra performed their first show at the Roosevelt Grill on October 3, 1929 and continued to play there for the next 30 years. It was at the Grill that he first broadcast what would become a famous New Years Eve tradition, playing  "Auld Lang Syne".
 
The Roosevelt Hotel has appeared in several major motion pictures, including The Boiler Room, Wall Street, Quiz Show, Presumed Innocent, Malcolm X, Monday Night Mayhem, The French Connection, Hanky Panky, Maid in Manhattan, The Hoax, and 1408. Infused with NYC culture and luxury, the hotel was most recently featured in the films Man on a Ledge, Men in Black 3 and The Dictator.
