Our stay was great. I was there with my daughter as she went to interviews for a graduate school scholarship. The hotel and the room were beautiful and the staff was friendly. My only complaint was the intermittent wi-fi access.

Hotel was very accommodating and was extremely welcoming. The room was unique and was extremely comfortable. I would definitely choose to stay here again if my travels brought me back to New York.

Roger Smith is an old-time New York hotel with charming rooms (complete with own little library) and friendly vibe. Good value and way better than the generic midtown hotels

          Good enough for family ”
          We arrived in New York at Thanksgiving. Compare to other hotel in the mid-town, this hotel had better price. Although the location isn’t directly in front of the street of thanksgiving parade route, we only needed few block away for reaching the location. This is why we choose this hotel beside the price. We booked suite room. Enough for our family (5 people). Some furnitures and the rug are already outdated, in the future will need to be upgraded. In general, we were very pleased to stay in this hotel because the staffs were very polite and helpfull.

          Excellent gem of a hotel”
          The location is perfect and away from the noise but close enough to Grand ,Central so you can get anywhere. It’s very quaint or as some reviews read ‘out dated’ - to me it’s full of character. Apples, grenola and yogurt available in reception 24 hours a day. Never a wait for the lift to/from our room. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Powerful shower and plenty of hot water. WiFi works everywhere in the building and never let you down. We visited the roof top bar on our first night which was lovely but my daughter didn’t turn 21 till the following day so we didn’t stay. Prices were about the same for cocktails as anywhere else (therefore expensive) but we didn’t find time to return and enjoy the views. Room service came daily. Book a car from reception to JFK for return journey. Lovely car and felt safer than a taxi plus only $70 plus tip - almost same price for taxi with toll and tax. Better to travel in luxury. Highly recommend this hotel and would return.

          The Roger Smith Hotel is a nice smaller hotel. It has been around a long time and it isn't very modern. However, it has great character and is clean and well maintained. The staff are pleasant, location is great, prices are reasonable and no hidden fees. A very pleasant and convenient place to stay.

          The location, Yogurt and musli every day, Good coffee in the room
          The location of this hotel is really good. You can use several lines of the subway. It was convenient to go to the air port using the subway from this hotel. I could eat several flavor of yogurt, musli every day. It was free. I could enjoy good coffee every day in my room. The hotel was really clean. However the size of the bed was really small. We reserved the room for three so two people hdd to lay on the same bed. It was so uncomfortable because the size was quite small compared to other hotels I've ever experienced. The size of the bed for two people was like the size of one person. I'm sure.

          Enjoyed the quirkily furnished room( all the lamps switch end on differently) and it was a warm retreat after cold and windy wet streets.The granola was a great idea. There was a wonderful view of the Chrysler Building from the front of the hotel and lots of places of fame within walking distance. Staff told us of good restaurants nearby.We would love to come again. Thanks

          It is a classical hotel and the atmosphere is family-like and good. Though the building is old and facilities in a room are not new, there is no problem for staying. The location is very good and within a walking distance from the Grand central Station and the Fifth Avenue. The staffs are senior people and very reliable. The complementary Greek yoghurt in the lobby lounge is very fine!

          The staff are very friendly. Wifi is slow at certain times of the day. Location is excellent in the center of evrything. Easy to get to any point in New York. Mattresses are soft got a back pain from sleeping in that type of mattress. Would have wanted to stay in a higher floor. If you stay on a low floor like we did you can hear the traffic and sometimes feel the trains running through the subway. But all in all for the price we paid, i couldnt expect any better.

          We were pleased with our stay at the Roger Smith Hotel. I appreciate all of the older furniture, making it feel kind of like stepping back in time. The one thing that should not have been so old, though, were the rugs. They had definitely seen better days, and could stand to be replaced. Room was generally clean.
