The Roger Smith hotel is in the best area in the City but the hotel needs a thorough face lift. The website shows beautiful rooms but they are not what you'll see once you're there. The property is very old and has a strong musty smell, the carpets needs to be changed. One of the 2 rooms we rented had no pictures on the wall but the hooks were still there. The wall paper is coming apart..there's so much more but the staff is awesome and the location is perfect. I would honestly stay here again if it gets a face lift, lol.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Not worth the price. Took three different staff members on three different days to find a fan for us. Phone in room never worked, remote control never worked, and worst of all staff did not care about any of it. Overall cost was much higher than reported on the Expedia site
