The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Names “Most Deserving Mom” and Rewards Her with Luxurious Mother’s Day Experience

 NEW ORLEANS – April 26, 2017 – The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, is proud to announce its first-ever “Most Deserving Mom.” After reviewing more than 270 nominations with heartfelt stories of loving and caring mothers, the hotel has named Ume Maggio “Most Deserving Mom” and is awarding her with an overnight stay at The Roosevelt New Orleans, as well as a luxurious spa treatment at the Waldorf Astoria Spa and full breakfast with her family in the hotel’s Fountain Lounge.

“We are thrilled to recognize such a deserving mother and treat her to a Mother’s Day weekend she will cherish for years to come,” said The Roosevelt New Orleans Resident Manager Sebastian Stutz.

Ashley Meyers nominated her mother, Maggio, for this special Mother’s Day gift, highlighting Maggio’s selfless dedication to her family. Through the years, Maggio has come to the aid of multiple family members during health crises, including her mother-in-law, her husband and her grandchildren, all while working full-time and still finding time to be a supportive, loving mom to her children.

“My mom is an inspiration for more reasons than I can list. She has always been the one to take care of everyone else and not think of herself,” said Meyers in her nomination.

The Roosevelt New Orleans kicked off the effort to name the “Most Deserving Mom” on Tuesday, April 4, with a call for nominations to be accepted through Wednesday, April 19.

This is one of two awards The Roosevelt New Orleans proudly honors local women with throughout the year. The other, the Reigning Spirit of the Sazerac, honored during the hotel’s annual Stormin’ of the Sazerac event, is a woman embodying strength, determination and courageousness who makes an indelible impact in her community.
