Paid a AAA rate of approx $145 for a Queen bed room. Style is eclectic and dated but the room was clean and had all the basic amenities plus free wifi. Location, price and the beautiful rooftop bar made it a very nice stay.

We really liked this hotel. It offers all the comforts of home, right down to the free yogurt with toppings and Granny Smith's apples in the lobby. As a matter of fact, if you're not into all the trendy, posh-posh that most of the hotels offer, this is the perfect spot for you. I'm not saying its a hole in... More

The Roger Smith is a great value overall. Friendly and helpful staff. Larger than your average NYC room (junior suite). Slept 5 very comfortably. Very clean and neat. Close to subway and Grand Central Station. Walked to Times Square. Highly recommended.

Exceptional location! Excellent service at the front desk and the bar on the roof! Great free yogourt all day long. Very good value for the price. Do not use parking if you do not have! Park outside the city if you can. If not, it is easy access from North East! Thanks to John and Craig and staff for good... More

Stayed there last week with two 20-something year old daughters. We all loved the room and funky decor. My daughter commented how nice it was to stay someplace that wasn't cookie-cutter. Also, the beds were very comfortable and I tend to be on the picky side about that. The staff was very willing to help us out as tourists. They... More

Booked a room over the weekend, and I was very pleased with the room and the personnel Very helpful and polite, helped us get cabs and always greeted us with a smile. The hotel room was comfortable and spacious. The only thing I would complain about was a hidden fee that applied each night we stayed. I booked it online... More

We choose the hotel based on location and the interior on the pictures online. We were not disappointed. The inside has a nice quirky style and the rooms are clean and nice. The service was great and the roof top bar is worth a visit. Location is close to lots of main sites and there are tons of great restaurants... More

Over all experience was pleasant for a long weekend family mini vacation. Only had a minor issue with valet. I was informed it would take 20 minutes to get my car and it took an hour. Would not hesitate to stay at this location again.

I was pleasantly surprised at how clean, and neat this hotel was for the price. I had the junior suite, and although small, it was enough. My only complaints, were the rug was old and worn, and needed updating, the TV was between the Large chair and sofa, so you had to turn it one way or the other, and... More
