While working for Finnair marketing division as director of tour and production department we selected Roger Smith Hotel to be our number one hotel in New York for our clients.. It has a perfect location on midtown area and the size of the hotel is good. I do not have any business affiliation with hotel any more but the hotel... More

Small boutique hotel. Great rooftop bar. Biggest drawback..only open until 10 p.m. on weeknights so we only got to enjoy it once. Front staff was helpful. Yogurt in lobby for guests. Convenient to subway. Rooms were small but know that is common in midtown Manhattan.

the hotel needs a renovation. The room and bath sizes are good, it´s clean, the closet size is good. But everything is old. They put new air conditioning but very noisy. Some of the receptionist should improve their atitude.

The room was really large...bigger than most I have stayed in downtown NYC. The pass to the NY Sports Club was great so I had access to full workout equipment...much better than a normal fitness center that is limited to just a couple of machines.

This is a hotel for people who values aesthetic beauty. The service was great and we loved the antique decor of the room and lobby. There was humble hospitality everywhere; there was delicious yogurt and granola available on the go in the lobby. The granola selection included gluten free! They have DVD rental services. Loved complimentary toiletry as well. It... More

This hotel is within walking distance of Times Square and Grand Central Station. Rooms are comfortable and this is one of the few hotels that offers two bed rooms. Small rooftop bar was a pleasant surprise! This is my second stay at The Roger Smith and will certainly stay here again.

We stayed at the Roger Smith hotel for a week end of June early July 2016. We chose the hotel based on the location as it is very easy to walk to the main areas we like, Grand Central, Macy's, Times Sq, Broadway, etc. The hotel however is very tired and needs a bit of an update. The elevators (lift... More

I LOVE this hotel! Excellent location in Midtown; large rooms; outstanding attitude of employees towards hotel guests (friendly, accommodating, respectful, considerate); wonderful rooftop bar during the warmer months; and not to forget the free Greek yogurts, granola and apples!

Very cozy hotel on the old vintage atmosphere, very clean and relaxing! The staff was extremely helpful and supportive. The rooftop bar was very cool, it wasn't big but the view of the city was incredible and the breeze was great in the summer months!

Love this place. It is easy to walk to from Grand Central, the staff is warm and friendly. I love the apples and yogurt with great granola. The art is fabulous, as is the rooftop garden. It is a place i'd love to hang out in every night.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
