Great location (very close to Grand Central), great views of the Chrysler and Pan Am Buildings. Nice spacious (for Manhattan) rooms with refrigerators. Friendly staff. Good price, given location and quality.

I loved that they had a residence lounge where you could sit and relax and they had yummy granola and yogurt available all the time.

Loved the unique charm of this boutique hotel! Wonderful surprise to have the residents' reception, though was unfortunately surprised at receiving a $25 charge the next day, as I thought it was complementary. Great location to Subway and walking.

The staff was very welcoming and check-in was quick & efficient. Room was spacious & clean. One big disappointment was discovering in the morning that the shower diverter was broken and we were unable to take a shower. We made do. Hotel offered to send someone up but we were still dressing and rushing to get out and start our day. I asked for an adjustment on the rental fee due to the broken shower, but they said since I went through a booking agent they couldn’t do it - I would have to ask Orbitz. So Orbitz, is there something you can do?

1 br suite was by far the largest room we've had in nyc. The extra space was great now that our kids are ternagers. Great rooftop bar. A few blocks to subway, but not bad.

The property is a beautiful old building with wonderful art work.

This hotel is exactly what a three star hotel is. Old style rooms; out dated rooms; but location is good.

It was a great location with a nice spacious room. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

I enjoy the stay ! I wish the room would have been more modernized though. It is too old style.

Centrally located, comfortable, and family friendly. Very friendly and helpful staff.

great location ... walking distance to Broadway theaters, Rockefeller Center, 5th Avenue shops, Central Park. Junior Suite was perfect for 3 friends. Yogurt and granola and apples in lobby were handy for a light breakfast or afternoon snack.

Good price for mid town Manhattan. But room badly in need of upgrade, particularly the carpet.

As always, The Roger Smith is my first and only choice to stay in New York!

My room was in need of upgrading the overall carpet and furniture The carpet was nasty you could see where it had not seen a vacuum or new carpet in over 20 years

The hotel is dirty looking. Stained carpets, cramped bathrooms, worn furniture. I wore my sock in the room. However, the staff was very friendly and helpful for all requests immediately. Not a horrible place in a pinch - just do not expect to feel like you are at a get away in NY.

Good boutique hotel in mid Manhattan. Convenient location and decent size room. Will come back again

It’s clear this hotel is on the older side, but it was everything we were looking for during our weekend stay in January. Front desk was attentive when we had questions and allowed us to use their iMacs and printer at no cost. Be patient when using the key cards and showerhead!
