This is an older property but very well kept with small but nicely appointed rooms and excellent amenities, restaurants, and shopping close by. On Lexington Avenue a short walk from Grand Central Terminal. Wonderful restaurants in all directions. The hotel has a rooftop bar during the warmer months - a great place to meet and have a drink. My room...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 January 2017

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.

I've been at Roger Smith many times and the service is always great! The fastest check-in! and support for any transportation and city info. Ask for Sophy! she solves any problem! Thanks This time I found the hotel needs to focus on maintenance: better carpet cleaning and renew some bathroom details.

This hotel has a great location and price. Attention was excellent t. A gem in NYC. The offer permanently granola and yogurt and fruit. There is also an expression machine in the room. The only problem wa the mattress, a bit soft and the whole place looks a bit tired paint-wise.

My daughter had a doctor's appointment with a NYC doctor due to a severe Crohn's disease flare. We arrived a few days before her appointment and the staff went above and beyond as they made sure every need of ours was met. I would 100% recommend the Roger Smith for your next stay in New York City. I cannot express...

I have been coming to The Roger Smith for almost 30 years. It's a simple but interesting place to stay. The staff are very helpful and real experts in customer service. I would recommend it to business travelers, people on holiday and families.

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.
