I have no regrets about staying here my family and I enjoyed it however it's too bad the club next door can stay under control. My daughter could not believe the way they were dressed or carrying on waiting to get in ... I would get over that quick except for the riot that blocked the street and woke us... More

This hotel is a gem in the city. If you don't mind the old timey style of furniture etc the value for your money is fantastic. The beds are very comfy and everything is working well, it's not run down, just older style. The staff is truly helpful, considerate and understanding, much unlike the staff of many other hotels in... More

I stayed at the Roger Smith Hotel for the NY marathon. It is a great location and overall the room was clean. The bathroom seems to have been remodeled recently, although it was small. Overall the room was a decent size, bigger than I expected for NY. The carpet in the room and in the lobby was worn, and the... More

The most amazing thing at the Roger Smith is the beds which are unbelievably comfortable. This was confirmed by two coworkers who stated the same that their beds were the same. Besides the beds the service was great and the hotel has a throw back feel to it. Lastly it is very central to many sites.

I stayed here recently with my sister and a friend, we had a junior suite which gave us ample room for the three of us. The location is perfect and we found the staff without exception charming and helpful. The hotel itself is somewhat old fashioned which is part of its enormous charm. I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the junior suite room. Is very old, needs some reform, but the problem is the second room, very little and very cold. Was impossible sleep there but luckily I was able to sleep on the sofa in the lounge
