The holidays will be in full swing before you know it, so now’s the time to solidify your plans to ensure your family has the perfect holiday. New Orleans holidays are unlike any other and when looking into local holiday events and/or where to stay if you are visiting we truly do reccomend the most exquisite hotel in the city, The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
Here are three Roosevelt holiday traditions that guarantee an unforgettable holiday experience for you and your family. Reservations for events below are already booking up, so don’t wait!
Teddy Bear Tea (Nov. 27, Dec. 3, 4, 10, 11, 17-24)
A well-known New Orleans tradition, the Teddy Bear Tea is the perfect family event featuring children’s menu items as well as traditional tea. Your children will light up when they see Santa and his elves in the Crescent City Ballroom as decorated for the holiday as the hotel’s famous Waldorf Wonderland lobby. For the occasion, the ballroom is transformed, giving everyone Santa’s view of New Orleans as he travels over the city in his sleigh.
A cash bar, free-flowing champagne and separate adult menu are available, so adults do not have to stick to just tea. Children will be gifted with the year’s commemorative Roosevelt Teddy Bear as a souvenir. Tickets start at $48 for children and $68 for adults, with the VIP package at $70 for children and $90 for adults. Click here to book reservations. All prices exclude tax and gratuity, which are added at checkout when making reservations. Tip – you can get your play group together and book an entire table!
Holiday Brunch (Thanksgiving and Christmas Day)
Put your aprons down and whisks away! The Roosevelt’s Thanksgiving and Christmas Day brunches are the perfect way to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with family. A rarity these days, both brunches are full buffets, featuring traditional cuisine and some creative New Orleans specialties! Call The Roosevelt’s holiday hotline at (504) 355-3129 to book today.

Important to note these prices do not include tax and gratuity, but they ensure once you make your reservations, your wallet won’t be needed!
Don’t forget the Waldorf Wonderland Lobby! (Nov. 29 – Jan. 1)
The Waldorf Wonderland Lobby is a must-see New Orleans Holiday stop. The block-long, gilded Waldorf Wonderland Lobby, decorated with 44 Birch trees, more than 22,000 twinkling lights and scores of festively dressed Christmas trees serve as the perfect family photo-op. What is even better is that the displays are free and open to the public through New Year’s Day, so it is one less holiday expense!
Looking for the perfect gift?
It seems like The Roosevelt is not just a spot for holiday festivities, but a fabulous place to buy holiday gifts. Walking into the Waldorf Astoria Spa, I knew right away some of my friends and family would love a gift card for a massage or hydra facial at this haven of absolute relaxation. You can also treat them to a six month or 12-month Spa Club membership, which grants them monthly exclusive reserved treatments at an exceptional value. Click here or call (504) 355-3190 to learn more about benefits of the spa membership. Not to mention, locals get 20 percent off services Sunday-Thursday!
