The Roger Smith Hotel

Experience NYC From Our Boutique Hotel in Midtown East

The Roger Smith Hotel is a welcome find among boutique hotels in Midtown NYC. Family-owned and family-friendly, we provide a welcoming, affordable and centrally located home base for a bustling Midtown East. Situated in a classic, prewar building, we’re just steps from exactly the New York City you’ve come to experience.  

Our rooms and suites, which stand out for their notable size, are individually decorated (no cookie-cutter design and décor here) and stocked with little luxuries like toothbrushes, extra towels, books shared by previous guests (feel free to take and add as you please) and free WiFi. You’ll find plenty of space to collaborate with colleagues or celebrate with friends, from five vibrant meeting and event venues to Lily’s Bar and Lounge and Henry’s Rooftop Bar, where the NYC skyline views are the star.

One of the longest-running family-owned hotels in Midtown NYC, The Roger Smith Hotel has maintained a distinctive, authentic identity in the heart of one of the most constantly evolving cities in the world for more than 80 years. We champion the city’s rich artistry, treating both our lobby and first-floor Lily’s Bar as rotating gallery spaces showcasing the work of local artists. Additionally, our guestrooms are designed with classic furnishings and artwork hand-selected by the owner for their eclectic character.

Think of staying at The Roger Smith Hotel as more like staying in a good friend’s really cool apartment rather than checking into a hotel.

Roger Smith is an idea.
