About The Roger Smith Hotel, New York, United States of America

Shopping, shows, museums

Saks Fifth Avenue, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and Rockefeller Center are all within 10 minutes west on foot, while a few blocks more will get you to MoMA and Radio City Music Hall. You'll find Museum Mile sites, next to Central Park, in a 20-minute subway ride and 5-block walk.

Sustainable and artsy

Eclectic and elegant
The Roger Smith is charming, convenient and provides excellent customer service. The art is beautiful and the rooms are spacious and sweet. The rooms are welcoming -where a DVD player and books provide touches of a bed and breakfast ..yet the location and the lobby provide elegance well beyond the rate. The staff is friendly and efficient. It provides the visitor with a lovely place to stay as well as nice touches like granola and yogurt in the lobby and espresso machine in your room.

The hotel had a great location! I was in town with friends and we were meeting friends. Our plans included a Broadway play and the 9/11 Memorial so location was important. Our stay was comfortable and the staff were great, however the hotel is dated and very worn. My bed sagged and our heater stopped working on the last night of a three night stay. The hotel needs a major face lift. When I mentioned the heater as I was checking out, the valet thanked me for letting him know. Again this was a good stay due to the location. I probably would not stay here again unless it had some work done.
