The Roosevelt Hotel opened its doors at the height of New York City’s roaring ’20s era. With elite clientele and a rich ambiance, it was hailed as the “Grand Dame of Madison Avenue.”
Historic events and major motion pictures have been hosted here for nearly a century, solidifying The Roosevelt’s stature as an American cultural icon. Their rooms have provided the elegant backdrop for award-winning films such as Wall Street, Malcolm X, and French Connection. It was famously home to Governor Thomas Dewey’s official city business, as well as the headquarters for his presidential campaign.  And in 1929, Guy Lombardo established the tradition of playing “Auld Lang Syne” on New Years Eve, sparked by his 1929 broadcast from The Roosevelt Grill.
Emerging from a meticulous restoration, this stately hotel has both the charm and grandeur of the Prohibition era, with all the amenities of the 21st century. It boasts over 1,000 guest rooms, classic and refined, with an attentive staff and uncompromising service. It’s also a signature destination for New York functions, offering 30,000 square feet of flexible meeting space.
The Roosevelt’s catering and events staff have consistently been recognized for excellence, awarded with The Gold Key, Best of the East and the Pinnacle Successful Meetings awards.  The Alfus Group had the opportunity to contribute to this award-winning team, placing their new Director of Catering in July, 2012.
