This was our first trip to New York being our 25th wedding anniversary & coming from Australia the first holiday that I have ever had in my life (53 years old) where I haven't taken my surfboards so I was a little bit like a duck out of water !
Anyway The Roger is ideally situated on Madison Avenue & within easy walking distance of much is going on for tourists & the subway is just a street away if you want to go up or downtown.
There are a number of pretty good small restaurants & bars in the immediate area which are well priced & offer plenty of variety.
Our room was spacious & tastefully well appointed. The bed could have slept a family comfortably it was that big. The bathroom was relatively small but did the job, albeit the water in the shower took some minutes to get hot.
The number 1 staff member for me at The Roger was Joe the doorman who we met upon arrival & established a good rapport with during our stay. Upon returning from a day running around or going out for dinner he was genuinely interested in what you had experienced whilst out & about. He was a fine representative for his hotel & his city of NY.
The Roger would be well served to advance him into a junior management role to capitalise on his abilities in my opinion.
Every other staff member that you would come across on your floor, in the lift or at the front desk would offer a warm hello with a smile, something you don’t always see in many establishments these days.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay at The Roger & have already recommended it to our friends.
