The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Receives Prestigious Chairman's Award from City's Downtown Development District

Honor Recognizes Hotel's "Extraordinary Contribution and Commitment to the Development
of Downtown New Orleans"

NEW ORLEANS - May 29, 2013  - The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, today announced it has received the Chairman's Award from the Downtown Development District (DDD) of New Orleans for what the DDD calls the hotel's "extraordinary contribution and commitment to the development of downtown New Orleans."

The honor, given to a downtown New Orleans partner by the chairman of the DDD's board of commissioners at his or her discretion, was presented as part of the 2013 Downtown NOLA Awards.

In explaining its reason for selecting the historic hotel, the DDD said, "The grandeur of the Roosevelt New Orleans has deep roots in the hearts and minds of New Orleanians. From the world-famous artists who performed at the legendary Blue Room to the lobby during the holidays and Sazerac Bar, many of us have positive memories or have heard dazzling stories that are a treasured part of New Orleans' history and culture."

In addition to its storied past, The Roosevelt New Orleans also plays an important role today in the city's tourism industry and as a favorite destination for locals. "The Roosevelt New Orleans was one of the first to re-invest in downtown New Orleans post-Katrina, and they continue to be an important contributor to downtown," the DDD pointed out.

The Roosevelt New Orleans general manager Tod Chambers accepted the award, saying, "The Roosevelt New Orleans has a deep admiration for the people of New Orleans and those who enjoy visiting our city. We stand side by side with our beloved city as it opens its arms to the world; nothing could make us happier."

The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, is one of America's most luxurious and revered properties in one of the world's greatest cities. This iconic hotel offers 504 rooms, including 125 suites, along with ballrooms and meeting space for every event from elaborate galas to private groups, weddings and more. Built in 1893 and boasting its signature block-long golden lobby with dozens of sparkling chandeliers, The Roosevelt has created its own history with the renowned Blue Room, Sazerac Bar, Guerlain Spa, fitness center, Rooftop Bar, Teddy's Café, Emporium Gift Shop and world-class service. Located steps from the history and excitement of the French Quarter, The Roosevelt New Orleans is the crown jewel of New Orleans luxury.
