upon arriving at the Roger Smith Hotel I was immediately met by the front desk clerk. He promptly and happily checked me into my room. I was exhausted after my flight and just wanted to get settled so I appreciated the fast check-in.
I went up to my room, opened the door, and I LITERALLY dropped my bags. I apparently had been upgraded to a BEAUTIFUL suite. I walked in and was in awe at the spacious living room area that included a fireplace, dining room table, sitting area, small library, and a writing desk. I proceeded down the hallway (after I picked my jaw up off the ground from the pure shock of how BIG this suite is) and was met with a kitchenette, bathroom and guestroom. At the end of the hall was another large room, the master bedroom. I do not feel like I'm in a NYC hotel in this place! This suite is bigger than my old apartment in Queens!
I went out for some dinner and upon returning I got a great suggestion from the front desk about where to get quality canolis from local bakeries. Everyone was so helpful and I felt like they genuinely cared about helping me, which is a rarity anywhere in today's world, and especially in New York.
I will be raving about this place for a while. The vintage and quaint nature of the whole hotel is very charming and inviting. I feel like an old fashion movie star staying here and I think I will stay here everytime I travel to New York from now on!
