          Elegent and extreamly comfortable hotel, good size of room and very helpful but not intrusive staff

          Pricey restaurant.

        • Single
          6.2

          Great location, very efficient front desk and interesting efforts to emphasise a connection with the arts

          All front facing rooms suffer from Lexington Ave noise. Avoid the restaurant. The staff are less than helpful, even by New York standards. No concerns about hotel staff outside of the restaurant. The bathrooms are tired and in need of an update.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Location

          It appears that cost per room per night does not correspond to appearance in general of hotel and room. further, shower has not anti scalding device (bursts of piping hot water).

          The Roger Smith is a very comfortable hotel, very much like a home away from home. I was very comfortable during my stay and was pleased with my choice of room - a one bedroom suite. This had a separate living area and kitchenette. I was in New York for 3 weeks and these little luxuries kept me sane. It was nice to have a fridge and microwave, especially at odd hours of the night. The hotel is ideally located on Lexington Avenue and is walking distance to practically everything.

          THe staff were all very pleasant, helpful and cordial. Location is the best feature.

          There was a problem with the hot/cold water. Either it was very hot or too cold. There was a smell as you enter the room. The smell of wet carpet forced to dry

        • Family with children
          7.8

          the hotel was very nice and we got a suite instead of the room we booked so this was a nice surprise. the room was clean and comfortable. still quite expensive, but that´s New York...

          we were 3 in the suite and, althought we had 2 double beds, we had to use the sofabed because there was no way 2 people could sleep in the narrow beds.

        • Single
          7.8

          Friendly staff

          Needs a facelift, dated and a bit shabby decor, chipped porcelain in bathroom, etc . But fair value in terms of a big room and good location.

          Price and location

          Stains on carpet. Missing hardware on dressers. Worn furniture. Uneven bed matress = very unconfortable. Poor bathroom layout.

          Location, friendly staff, room is small but cozzy

          I asked to fix the room shower three times: never fixed so I never had a proper shower. Can be noisy if facing Lexington Ave (no double windows). Must be hot in Summer (no air-con visible).
