Location
This June, The Roger is unveiling a sophisticated new look after extensive renovations of its public spaces and guest rooms.  Standing at the crossroads of uptown and downtown, the new Roger is a marriage of chic design and old world comfort, while continuing an unyielding commitment to superior service.  The fresh aesthetic of the Roger's new lobby lounge and restaurant is curated by hospitality guru Steven Kamali and designed by the notable Anna Busta.  To update the spacious guest rooms, The Roger tapped Annette Jaffe of MSM.  Roger's new look is characterized by lush custom pieces and applied moldings to naturally compliment the historic building's unique rooms.  Whether for only a night or a week's long stay, The Roger is the modern traveler's home away from home.

Roger Hotel

The Staff at the Hotel are professional but warm and very helpful. The facilities are very good and the individual rooms are nicely appointed and bathrooms and rooms are spotless. The only problem we had was that the room was very warm (77F) and we were unable to get the thermostat to adjust the temperature. The hotel breakfast buffet was lovely and the staff was very attentive. Would definitely stay at the hotel again.

Overpriced, undersized, previous monastic use; and it still feels that way.

This is the worst property that we have ever stayed in in NYC. In fact, it is the worst property we have ever stayed in anywhere on the planet; and we have traveled extensively for more than fifty years. No one should be exposed to bed bugs, filth, cockroaches, and such rude and incompetent staff..

Great niche hotel

The Roger as it is referred to is a delightful, comfortable hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The beds are very comfortable, and the location is excellent. One downside was I could talking from the next door room. In would stay there again.

A small gem

I was in town 2 days for business meetings around the Flatiron bldg area. The hotel is within walking distance to both Madison Square and Herald Square area. Many options for a quick bite as well as fine dining. The fact that it's on lower Madison Ave, traffic is never all that congested which makes getting around really easy. Rooms are clean and modern. Wish there's a real table that I can place and work my computer. Bathroom is small but sufficient. Good value.

The Roger - best of Midtown Manhattan

I was there on business and the location made it easy to get to the accounts I was visiting in the East Village, the Upper West Side & the Upper East Side. It was my third stay at "The Roger" & I plan to return in another 3 to 4 months. I like the hotel for their friendly staff, clean & comfortable rooms & their delicious, although limited dining options.

Just a few blocks away on East 33rd is "2nd Avenue Deli", although not on 2nd Avenue they have some of the best deli offerings in the city. If you're staying a few nights and want an alternative to the hotel's delicious continental breakfast, consider "Penelope" on Lexington Avenue at 30th. The Pumpkin waffles with real maple syrup & the Buttermilk pancakes were over the top!

Traveled alone to NY for the first time.

I dont travel alone very often and had never been to NYC. The room was perfect, the staff was professional and I felt very safe.
