The Roosevelt New Orleans Makes Old Traditions New Again
with the Waldorf Wonderland Lobby and Teddy Bear Tea
Holiday Display to Feature Gingerbread Village Depicting Iconic New Orleans Restaurants
 

NEW ORLEANS, La. - (October 10, 2011) - The Roosevelt New Orleans continues the tradition of offering a spectacular display of New Orleans holiday wonderland decorations, as luxurious and memorable as the historic property itself, for locals and guests to experience during the holiday season.

This year, the Waldorf Wonderland Lobby returns bigger and better as the grand lobby is transformed into a canopy of white birch branches and thousands of twinkling lights, along with a nostalgic look at some of New Orleans great eatery's enhancing the already spectacular holiday extravaganza.

A six by 11-foot gingerbread village depicting some of New Orleans' most famous restaurants, including Camellia Grill, Commander's Palace, Creole Creamery, Galatoire's and Pascal's Manale, just to name a few, will be displayed inside Teddy's Café, located off the hotel's grand lobby.

The lobby will also be lined with Christmas trees decorated with bows and ornaments, poinsettias and other holiday-themed displays. The festive, free attraction is a favorite near and far and is open to the public.

"The Waldorf Wonderland Lobby is a must-see for visitors and locals," said General Manager Tod Chambers. "It's our way of giving back to the community and recognizing that New Orleans is already a magical destination, made a bit more appealing at The Roosevelt Hotel."

The holiday delight, an attraction to everyone who visits New Orleans during the season, has been a New Orleans tradition since the 1930s and returns again from Nov. 29, 2011, through Jan. 1, 2012.

The Roosevelt's beloved Teddy Bear Tea returns Dec. 3. The event, a family favorite during the holidays, hosts guests and their children for a special tea party featuring children's menu items, as well as traditional tea, a cash bar and menu for adults, plus complimentary free-flowing champagne. Children also will receive this year's commemorative Roosevelt Teddy Bear upon arrival.  Entertainment will include storytellers and trumpeters, as well as appearances by Santa, his elves and Mrs. Claus. Framed, commemorative photos with Santa will be available at an additional cost.

Guests can participate in Teddy Bear Tea Dec. 3, 4, 10, 11 and 17 - 23 in the Crescent City Ballroom, with seatings at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tickets for Teddy Bear Tea are $54 for adults and $37 for children 10 years of age and younger, plus tax and gratuity, and can be purchased by calling The Roosevelt holiday line at (504) 335-3129. Children ages 3 and under will be admitted free of charge.
