A Marriage of Chic Design and Old World Comfort in Midtown Manhattan
Exuding the warm and authentic sense of place that exists only in New York City boutique hotels of a certain age and ancestry, The Roger is a fixture on fashionable Madison Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. A stunning retreat known as much for its high level of service as its chic and unconventional Anna Busta interiors, this NoMad landmark hotel delights longtime guests with 194 spacious guest rooms (including many with private garden terraces) and famous Breakfast Pantry filled with homegrown deliciousness from local culinary icons including Petrossian, Sarabeth’s, Balthazar and Ceci Cela.
Everything about The Roger exudes an Old World sensibility, from late afternoon wine get-togethers for guests to handcrafted cuisine and cocktails curated by Jonathan Morr. Never-before-seen photos of celebrities decorate the lobby’s exposed brick walls while restful guest rooms by interior designer Annette Jaffe blend uptown elegance with downtown cool.
Long before The Roger became one of NoMad’s most stylish and celebrated hotels, it was the Roger Williams, a 15-story brick hotel designed by Jardine, Hill & Murdock that opened in 1930 on property leased from the Madison Avenue Baptist Church. It was named for Roger Williams, the 17th century theologian and abolitionist, who started the first Baptist Church in America.
