The Roger Smith Hotel, a friendly, intimate, family-run, bed and breakfast-type hotel, has been sculpted and formed by President/CEO/Artists-in-residence, James Knowles to be a "utopian cultural haven in Midtown Manhattan for those of a fine artistic bent" (Allen Sperry, New York's 60 Best Wonderful Little Hotels). Its 136 ample sized guest rooms are each decorated individually by Suzanne Knowles, wife of (and inspiration for) the creative genius behind the identity and the spirit of the hotel.

Nestled amongst the skyscrapers of Midtown, inches from Grand Central Station, around the corner from Broadway and Central Park, the Roger Smith is a "quirky oasis" and a comfortable refuge from the City in the center of the City.

The Roger Smith Hotel, passionately dedicated to art, creativity, good ideas and fun, is proud to be affiliated with the Havana Film Festival.
