About The Roger Smith Hotel, New York

Arty Midtown Manhattan hotel with a rooftop bar, near Saks

By Grand Central Terminal

The Roger Smith Hotel provides an art-conscious setting on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan's Midtown East. You'll find subway and train lines, plus the Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant, at Grand Central Terminal a block away, and United Nations Plaza is a 10-minute walk east.

Shopping, shows, museums

Saks Fifth Avenue, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and Rockefeller Center are all within 10 minutes west on foot, while a few blocks more will get you to MoMA and Radio City Music Hall. You'll find Museum Mile sites, next to Central Park, in a 20-minute subway ride and 5-block walk.

Sustainable and artsy

The hotel is on the mark with sustainability practices and promotes the arts through the Roger Smith Creative Program. You can find rotating exhibits along with cocktails on the ground floor in Lily's Bar & Lounge, and sunny palate-pleasers in the seasonal Harry's Rooftop Bar.

Real plants and free WiFi

The elegant rooms range in decor, but all feature live plants, free WiFi, iPod® docks, and cable TV with premium movie channels. Coffeemakers and mini-fridges are provided, and 1-bedroom suites come with the added bonus of kitchenettes plus separate living and sleeping areas.
