Verified Reviews of The Roger Smith Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Enjoyable. Felt Like Home. "
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Really enjoyed my stay. The room was comfortable. Pleasantly surprised when we got to the hotel and we found an invitation to attend a Bach's D minor Concerto, a recital/lecture by pianist Javor Bracic, and a string quartet, here at the hotel. Complimentary wine was served. It made for a lovely evening. Will be sure to come back to this hotel the next time I come to NY!
