About The Roger Smith Hotel, New York

Value for money

The Roger Smith Hotel is that all-too-uncommon thing: a family-owned hotel in 21st-century, Midtown Manhattan. Color and creativity shine amid the surrounding skyscrapers. We champion the citys rich artistry, treating both our lobby and first-floor bar Lilys as rotating gallery spaces. Guests feel comfortable in our individually designed guestrooms, with their antique furnishings and abundant artwork. One of the longest-running family-owned Midtown hotels in NYC, The Roger Smith Hotel has maintained a distinct, intimate identity for more than 80 years, all in the heart of one of the most consistently changing cities in the world.
