With the all cooking, cleaning, shopping and hosting guests that come with the holidays, sometimes we just need a break. A ritzy staycation is in the back of our minds when we think of all the ways to de-stress and it's even better when it includes dreamy holiday displays. This super fancy hotel in New Orleans is insanely affordable and it transforms into a massive, twinkling winter wonderland next month.
The Roosevelt New Orleans is a branch of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts and it's everything you can dream of in terms of a pampered getaway. This is the true epitome of "treat yo' self" and you won't even be breaking the bank to do it.
If you're looking for an escape from Christmas mayhem but you still want to absorb the joyous holiday cheer, The Roosevelt is the place for you.
On Dec. 3, the hotel will host its annual lighting of "Waldorf Wonderland," which completely transforms the block-long lobby into a wonderous walkway filled with magical lights and decorations.
The holiday fantasyland is expanding this year with all new features inlcuding 20,000 additional lights and almost double the bows and garlands. Altogether, you'll be in awe as you browse 44 Christmas trees; 135,572 lights; 3,328 feet of winter branches; 2,200 glass ornaments and 698 hand-tied bows.
All are welcome to view the lighting and explore the lobby free of charge, but wouldn't it be even better if you could actually stay in a room amongst this illuminated fantasy?
You're in luck because you can book a room for as low as $75 per person, per night. A two-bedroom suite that sleeps four is only $297 on select dates (including the date of the lighting)!
With top-of-the-line amenities including a swimming pool, spa, rooftop bar, three on-site restaurants, a mini-bar in the rooms and even TVs in the bathrooms, you'll wonder how you got such a steal. Not to mention, free unlimited access to the sparkling Christmas wonderland right beneath your room.
