Great Location and Price, Loud Loud Loud
The hotel was clean and staff was kind and efficient. Location is prime! However the property is quite dated and loud, you can hear the noise from Lexington Ave, the heat was loud, everything. Our room was incredibly hot and after asking the front desk the only solution was to open the window...which led to more noise. So if you are a light sleeper, or want an updated hotel, Roger Smith is not for you. If you want convenience at a good price, then the hotel satisfied that.

Very pleasant
We only stayed for one night. Good location and very clean, comfortable beds. Could have been a bed side lamp. Bath tub didn't drain. Otherwise no issues at all. Friendly staff, especially at the bag check and at check out.

Good 6.0
My two night stay
The concierge was not very friendly. Upon check in she was very impatient with me when I had questions. The “yogurt and granola” we paid 35 dollars a day for was hardly ever stalked and ALWAYS a mess. I asked to check out the night before because I had to leave at five in the morning. The concierge told me someone would help me in the morning. The concierge in the morning was soooo slow. Unable to print out my receipt and then they could not find my car in the parking garage. I ended up leaving an hour late after they finally found my car. Parking is 50 dollars a night and you cannot access your car unless you want to pay extra. Plus is that it is in a good location, bed was comfortable, and they were responsive if you needed blankets, towels, etc. Shower and bathroom as a whole is very out dated. Rust comes through the pipes and the temperature/ water pressure in the shower is not very good.
