Ma ecco che il momento della partenza è arrivato, quasi senza che ce ne accorgessimo e ora su questo aereo in …

Lexington Avenue

A travel blog entry by david.tahau

We only had one night booked at the Edison so it was a mad scramble to find a room for two more nights. We chose The Roger Smith Hotel on 47th & Lexington Ave, so it was a walk directly across the island towards Grand Central Station. Now the weather was about to change drastically, it was drizzling and it was expected to worsen during the day …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Roger Smith Hotel New York City

    Well worth it, Roger Smith Hotel...

    from

    Just returned 11/30/04. Spent 4 nights at the Roger Smith on Lexington. Made reservations for 2 daughters in early 20s and myself. This is the first time we've ever booked a room for more than $200 a night---but it was Thanksgiving weekend and in New York.

    Not recommended!

    from

    Positives: Price, room larger than average for New York, location, free breakfast

    Negatives: Grudgy, stains on cushions and floor that are better not to think about; Very Noisy; Water in the bathroom sometimes ran brown; beds very uncomfortable.

    Very impressed...

    from

    I stayed at The Roger Smith in February 2003 on our first visit to NY. First impressions were very pleasing and professional - we were upgraded for free to a Queen room - just because they didn't respond to my email query within a week! Good location, stylish, clean hotel. Great little relaxing bar downstairs. Would definately stay there again.

    Euro-style and relaxed. Way better than chain hotels

    from

    During Aug 3-6 2004 we took advantage of a discount on Jr Suites offered through the hotel. Considering it's NYC, the $200/night was fully worth it for what we got. The JR Suite was a corner room, so we could catch some views of the city and not be sandwiched between other rooms. The room was spacious and the sitting area w/ couch, chaise, coffee table, tv was a great place to unwind after walking all day in the city. The queen bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The only drawback was a noisy air conditioner but we just wore earplugs.

    Loved our stay at Roger Smith

    from

    We just spent 5 wonderful days in NYC and our whole experience at the Roger Smith was wonderful. Our room was clean and beautifully decorated, the Continential breakfast was very very nice and in a great little restaurant atmosphere and the hotel staff were very helpful. The Roger Smith is in a such convienent location to so many great NYC sites. The street noise might have bothered us more if the air conditioner hadn't done such a good job of drowning it out. This is New York, the city that never sleeps -- it might be noisy!! We can't say enough good things. Our only complaint might be that the elevators were pretty slow. They were working on one elevator -- so maybe that problem will be fixed soon. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a less expensive, yet lovely place to stay while in NYC.

    Disappointing and in need of renovation

    from

    Thinking this would be a nice boutique hotel in a great location I eagerly booked this hotel on very short notice. Much to my dismay, the room was quite shabby (one lamp did not even have a bulb). The bathroom was very small (not unusual for NYC) with an odd musty smell. The room was on the street and quite noisy. Also, when asking for a cab, the person acting as a doorman instructed me to walk about 8 blocks! I won't be going back to this one...

    Great city, pity about the hotel...

    from

    Stayed there a few years ago, so maybe this review doesn't reflect the current conditions, and maybe I was unlucky to get one of the poorer rooms, but I would never go back again. Out of some 30 odd hotels I've stayed in the US, this is the worst of the lot. The room was dark, gloomy and very grubby - an unpleasant, lingering smell in the bathroom (which wasn't from me, I can assure you!). Even though NY is more expensive than elsewhere, it certainly didn't feel like value for money. The only positive thing I can find to say is that the location is very good - right in the centre of midtown Manhattan. But then again, many NY hotels are in midtown and I'd rather try one of those next time.

    Nice Place, Busy Street

    from

    Stayed here over Halloween 2003. It is a very nice hotel with big rooms for New York and clean. The location is very central. The main problem was that a lot of the rooms are on the street and Lexington is NOISY!!!

    We heard horns every minute we were in the room.

    The staff is sparse and there was basically no door man for cabs. I think they have one on duty and if you can catch him, you're ok - but that was very hit and miss.

    All in all - average. I would opt for a quiet, smaller hotel with a more attentive staff. I would stay here again only if I was guaranteed a back room.

    Room was large but grubby.

    from

    We stayed at the Roger Smith last fall in a large suite. The bedroom was nice and there was also a tiny 2nd bedroom with a twin bed that was fine. Our complaint was that the living room was made up of mismatched pieces of leftover furniture and the overall effect was that it was grubby.

    We have stayed in the city 4 times since then, but won't go back to the Roger Smith. I have found the Rihga Royal to be consistently better.

    Shining Star!

    from

    We went to NYC for a conference at the Marriot Marquis. We stayed at the Roger Smith because it was less expensive. During the blackout, we were very happy with the way the Roger Smith handled the emergency.
