The Roosevelt Hotel has been a landmark on the Manhattan skyline since it opened on September 22, 1924. Over the last 90+ years, this luxurious hotel has remained a true icon of New York City, welcoming millions of guests from around the world.
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 Lombardo first broadcast what would become a famous New Year’s Eve tradition – the singing of “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.
