    Old rooms and property. Good staff. Minimal plugs in rooms. Unimpressive to say the least. Old TV.

    A rare oasis in midtown. Their free wifi is blazing fast even with dozens of people on it. If you look up "hospitality" in wikipedia, there should be an image of Roger Smith's staff. Very impressive.

    Tired & weary travelers with a messed up reservation that couldn't be rectified due to a full house. Why not always leave an empty room for error due to the reservation staff. No turn down service.

    The artsy vibes–the huge stainless steel sculptures at the entrance and the massive oil paintings crowding the lobby walls definitely have wow-factor. The eats at Lily’s are quite good, too. Read more
