I had such a wonderful experience at the Roger Smith Hotel. The staff was incredibly accommodating and the location was EVERYTHING (we were just a couple of blocks away from Grand Central) and it was very comfortable. The room was wonderful, clean, and perfect to celebrate a week away with my friends. Thank you for everything! I'll definitely be coming back!

Can't complain with my experience at the Roger Smith at all. It's only a block or two from Grand Central so getting there and back is super easy and convenient. There's also a Walgreens pharmacy right across the street for any quick needs. Was able to meet with the owner/manager and learned about all the metal artwork found throughtout the building and the artist-focused culture that the hotel strives for. Super cool to be able to stay at this type of independent establishment. Definitely recommend the renovated "mirror room" on the 15th floor if it's available!

The Roger Smith Hotel is a classy and spirited Lady. The moment I walked in, I was greeted by the sweet and charismatic front desk maven, Sophy Diaz. The rooms are classy, clean, and comfy. The lobby is filled with unique art. The concierge, Victor Manuel Fernandez, has a knack and is in the know of recommendations for all of the off-the-beaten-path spots in the city. Everyone went out of their way so I could have a special NYC trip. I will return to the Roger Smith Hotel and I highly recommend this midtown gem.
