Authentic 30s hotel with non-corporate, homey feel. Perfectly positioned close to Grand Central, 5th Avenue, shopping and subway, bottleshop and supermarket. Walked everywhere. Friendly, helpful staff.

Loved the personal touches, great location, comfortable room and very helpful staff. Great location! Really appreciated the welcome note and complimentary wine for our son's 21st birthday and the convenience of fridge and microwave in the room.

Yes, this hotel is my most favourite in the world, and I have travelled extensively. I always stay here in NYC. I feel very lucky to have found this hotel. These are the reasons: 1. Perfect location in NYC: *Away from crowds, yet a very short walk to Grand Central etc. *You can get fresh juice and fruit, nuts, cheese,...

We’ve just returned from our 2nd stay at this hotel in 2016, this time staying over the festive period and had to express on here, once again, what a fabulous place this is, in a perfect location, close to pretty much everything in Midtown and with the most exceptional and friendly staff. Sadly this time, the manager, Pere Sanchez Frigola,...

My teenaged daughter and I recently spent a week at the Roger Smith. Rarely does a hotel conform so closely to the internet descriptions. Location is perfect--walk to everything. The hotel is family run and feels like you are staying in someone's home. The room was exactly as pictured-quiet, comfy fluffy beds and impeccable service. The holiday lounge party every...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
