We were in NYC for one night only to see a show - 1 adult & 2 teens. Found The Roger using Hotel Tonight for a good rate. We were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were all very helpful and friendly (got some great college info from one of the staff whose daughter has the same fashion passion as one... More

Husband and I decided on a last minute trip to NYC and used our hotel tonight app for the first time. For this caliber hotel, completely worth it with that app. We got our room for $179 for a night (going rate was $329 plus tax and fees)!!! The staff was nice and friendly. The room was clean, modern chic,... More

It was our first trip to New York and we couldn't have asked for a better location. It was a fairly quick taxi ride fro JFK airport, but the best thing for me was it was just two short blocks away from the Empire State and all the shops. When booking the hotel I did request a twin room, but... More

I loved everything from the welcome gift with the personalized card from the hotel manager, all the way to the bell hop who said goodbye as we hopped in the cab. I will definitely be back! This was a refreshing experience, after the last few years of sub par service in hotels all across America.

Superb breakfast to American standards.Well situated between Central Park and Manhattan. And for my 80-year old mother a unique occasion to see her grandson again after more than 4 months having...

By wife and I usually make a pilgrimage to NYC every year to take in a few Broadway shows and club acts. We love staying in this area -- just north of Madison Square Park and convenient to several subway lines. We've stayed at the Chandler Hotel (across the street from The Roger) and it is similar to The Roger.... More

It is a lovely boutique hotel in an excellent location, personally I love being near Chelsea and near Midtown without being inmersed in either area. Also this is a residential area where real newyorkers live so the restaurants are for local crowds not just for tourists. The staff is amazing and they have a lovely happy hour for guests between...

We stayed at the Roger June 2014 - my first stay, my husband stays here often when traveling to NYC for work. I thought the hotel was lovely - very clean, modern and fresh! The complimentary wine was a really nice treat! Rooms were quite spacious for NYC. Central location. Highly recommend.

I recently stayed at this property for a one-night getaway. It was booked online through one of the rate-comparison websites. The quoted rate was $159 + taxes for a single Saturday night stay; totaling about $205. The front desk staff was pleasant upon check in. As usual, they asked for my credit card for incidentals. The room was not ready... More

This hotel is situated with all amenities close by. It is walking distance to empire state building (if you are lucky you can see it lit up from your window) subway, times square, and there is a parking lot a block away. The staff are superb, knowledgeable and very helpful, nothing is too much for them. We dealt with the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This June, The Roger is unveiling a sophisticated new look after extensive renovations of its public spaces and guest rooms. Standing at the crossroads of uptown and downtown off Madison Park, the new Roger is a marriage of chic design and old world comfort, while continuing an unyielding commitment to superior service. The fresh aesthetic of the Roger’s public spaces is curated by hospitality guru Steven Kamali and designed by the notable Anna Busta. A collaboration of renowned talent has distinguished a transitional hotel that caters to the demands of the modern traveler and local tastemakers alike. The vaulted lobby lounge provides an ideal space for any time of day or occasion, from morning business meetings to lunch with family, or catching up over cocktails with friends.To update the spacious guest rooms, the Roger tapped Annette Jaffe of MSM, whose timeless original design has kept travelers returning year after year. Jaffe’s new rooms are characterized by lush custom pieces and applied moldings to naturally compliment the historic building’s unique rooms and inviting terraces. Whether for only a night or a weeks long stay, the Roger is the savvy traveler’s home away from home. ... more   less
