This was our second visit to the Roger Smith Hotel (RSH). We had the same room (910), a junior suite, as the last time--which is most comfortable. Our room rate was $170 daily--a non refundable and special rate.The desk staff greeted us by name on our arrival. The RSH is a small hotel, and the staff treats you as family....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Beautifully appointed comfortable rooms. Superb beds and lovely people. We always choose The Roger Smith and each time we remember why we love it so much. The location is perfect for exploring New York. The hotel is such a great change from the anonymous corporate chains. Rooms are a generous size with great furnishings.

Excellent attention from the hotel staff, always willing to help, very good detail offering granola and yogurt for the guests. Very useful room amenities: refrigerator, desk, comfortable beds, and good furnishing. Free wi-fi internet, very important.

Roger Smith is about as great a place as you could stay in Midtown Manhattan. It feels like a bit of an old fashioned experience in the best way possible. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable, and the staff, were friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend this place more.

I doubt I will ever stay anywhere else when I come to NYC. Perfect location midtown. Beautiful beds, delightful suites. Huge rooms! Incredible service at this family owned boutique hotel. Also Great meals across the road at Brass and at the exceptional Avra Estiatorio just around the corner for a really special dining experience. Love it all!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
