In mid-town right next to $$$$ hotels, but with online discounts (hotels.com), I got what I wanted. I have been to other NY hotels in the lower price range where the rooms were far smaller. Choose this when you are a tourist on a budget. And enjoy a nice walk to Times Square, the UN, and Rockefeller Center.

Great for people visiting NYC but not really geared for the business traveller. I stayed because it was a block away from work and it had membership to new york fitness centres (about 3 blocks away). Enjoyed my stay after getting over the slightly frayed look of everything...

This hotel was recommended to me for my recent visit in nyc as the hotel I usually stay in was fully booked. In comparison to other hotels I would have chose first, the Roger smith was cheaper to others, however still at $853 for wed and Thurs night, well, I certainly expected nicer accommodations. They also could of maybe posted... More

I've stayed here 4 or 5 times and I like it more each time. It's old, a little rickety, and really not big enough to handle the conference I attend each year. But it does have it's charms, not least of which is the artwork everywhere. The location can NOT be beat, walking distance to everything midtown. And this past... More

Visited the Roger Smith during a girls weekend. What a gem in the middle of midtown! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is great, right on Lexington close to Grand Central and a short walk from Times Square and 5th Avenue shopping. The room itself was spacious (we had a Jr. Suite) and well appointed. The beds... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Roger Smith during the US Open 2014. It's an old hotel but well kept. We had a 2 bedroom suite with large main room, a small single room, small kitchenette, & large living room with pull out bed. This was quite a large suite especially by New York standards. Not all of... More

Mu hubby and I stayed her a few years ago and it was awesome in Midtown. We Would go again. We had a room on the 3rd floor on the corner - it was great. It was more in the artsy district. we were able to walk and get around easy. Have fun.
