HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 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.

It has been over five years since I last stayed at Roger Smith. I was happy to find it the same clean, cozy, comfortable place. It is hard to beat for cost/location. If I need to be in Mid-town again I will check in at Roger Smith.

Room and bathroom were large. Very nicely appointed. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Location could not have been better. Close to subway and museums. Two small problems: the air conditioner was noisy and there really was not a control on it. I has to pull out a switch to turn it off. also, the fixture on the tub was loose....

Location was fantastic. The Lobby was nice, very quiet. Once we got to our floor my husband looked at me not very happy. The hotel just looked not well kept, and kind of dirty. The room was very spacious, and with big windows. The TV had horrible connection. The bathroom did not look clean. And the shower was bad. The...

I booked a room for a week at the Roger Smith Hotel for the convenience of the location and the price. Little did I expect what a pleasure it would be. My wife immediately felt like she had returned to Paris on entering the room. The amenities took their toll: from the thick towels, the nice decor and a great...

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.
