Reviewed May 30, 2015

I was pleased to have such a spacious, comfortable bath and room, and a VERY comfortable bed. The room was laid out nicely also. An additional item: the water pressure/temperature of the water (8th floor) was top-notch, as compared with some other hotels I've stayed in. The staff was very pleasant, and the complimentary yogurt/granola was a nice touch.

We stayed 5 nights in a one bedroom apartment and would highly recommend this hotel. The decor and furnishings are to a very standard, providing the comfort of a home from home. The staff could not be any more helpful. This hotel is located in great location and is ideal for any tourist

This was our second stay at Hotel Roger. It's location can not beat. Straddling east and west, it is an easy walk to the UN, Koreatown, theatre district. Chelsea, and more. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed but corner rooms are the best albeit expensive. It is a shame that a small bottle of water in the room was...

A lovely hotel with very friendly staff. Everyone is overwhelmingly helpful and fun. The rooms are a little old-school, in a very plush and grand way with quaint decorations and comfortable furnishings which give a nice snugness to the rooms. The location is excellent being a five minute walk from Grand Central, the UN buildings, a little longer for Times...

Comfort overload. The boutique hotel has it all. A rooftop bar, pleasing and helpful front desk staff. Three types of scrumptious granola and thick yogurt available at any time of day or night. We often grabbed some for late night...ahem...morning munchies. There was always a bowl full of apples on the counter, again at a 24 hour convenience. Loads of...

Very nice hotel - friendly and helpful staff - large rooms with cosy, lovely furniture. Free complimentary youghurt and granola in the lobby. Grand Central Station is just a little stroll down Lex Av. If I go back again I would definately check out for vacancies at The Roger Smith Hotel :-)

Our party of six chose the Roger Smith because of its proximity to Grand Central Station and, unlike many hotels in NYC, it offered 2-bed rooms without charging suite prices. Located in a quaint, older building, the hotel has kept the building's charming features but some of the fixtures and decoration need updating. The rooms were clean and the beds...

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.
