If you get a room on a high floor which has been remodeled, this is an excellent hotel for the money. We were referred here and have stayed twice, and they have been very pleasant and kind. Comfortable, old-NY hotel.

I love the size of the rooms, hence the title of my review, at The Roger Smith. It is centrally located - close to a subway station - and one of the classier places in town that is still reasonably priced. The hotel staff is always friendly and accomodating - especially Sophy at the front desk. I've heard her speak... More

We stumbled upon the Roger Smith Hotel one evening and decided to have a drink in the bar.We felt really relaxed and comfortable and decided to eat in the restaurant. The food is amazing - we had the tenderloin and it was... More

Located in the most central and convienant of locations in the city is a small boutique hotel, The Roger Smith Hotel, staffed by the most amazing, caring and wonderful people in New York... More

We love the Roger Smith! The rooms are homey and very comfortablle and the location is amazing but what really sets the Roger Smith apart is the friendly and efficient staff. This recent stay was our fourth visit and we are already making plans to visit again!!

The staff was fantastic, the service was second to none, the location was perfect, I travel to NY often on business and usually stay at Hilton at double the price. You simply cannot beat the value and location.

Wonderful big rooms and very friendly staff make your stay comfortable. Needless to say that the location near Madison Avenue and Grand Central is fantastic. The prices offered were by a call directly from the Hotel Lobby to the Reservation Service were very good, the normal rate though is a bit expensive for an ordinary traveler... The atmosphere is very... More

The Roger Smith hotel has a great location, very nice accomodations, and best of all a great staff. The staff including Kucuk Bag, Rafeal, Manny, Randy, and Mark were excellent. They all made us feel right at home..

We stayed at the Roger Smith for 4 nights during our 1 year anniversary. First off, the staff are fantastic and extremely helpful. The building is older and so are the rooms, but they were very comfortable and the cleaning staff cleaned our room every day. Honestly if you are going to New York for the first time and you... More
