Dapper New York dandy with classic cocktails and New American fare on Madison Avenue
The Roger is a natty gent presiding over his stretch of Madison Avenue with bachelor den style — chesterfields, houndstooth-print walls, pinstripe banquettes — in a luxe mix of jewel tones and rich textures (leather, velvet, marble). The loft-like lobby sets the tone, with white brick walls flanked by mercury mirrors, herringbone floors topped in over-dyed Persian rugs and a gallery-like collection of rock-and-roll photos. The 194 guest rooms also cut a fine figure, with nailhead-trimmed headboards, alligator skin benches, and walls of the palest icy blue. Black-and-white photos of New York lend a sense of place, and such perks as Egyptian cotton linens, down comforters and plasma TVs feel indulgent. (Spring for a Terrace Room for a spacious outdoor area—an extreme rarity in New York—with loungers and topiaries.) Wake up to a taste of New York down in the hotel restaurant with a breakfast spread that includes croissants from Balthazar, bagels from the legendary H&H and granola from Sarabeth’s. At night, the Bistro serves up comfort food including short rib mini-burgers on brioche and soda-dipped fried chicken with sriracha honey and sumac yogurt sauces.
In the Area
The location in the relatively quiet Murray Hill neighborhood may feel a bit dead at night, but you’re just a short walk from the Empire State Building and Madison Square Park. Head down there for some of the city’s best burgers at Shake Shack and to taste your way through Mario Batali’s sprawling monument to Italian food, Eataly. You’re also just a few blocks south of Koreatown. Grab some joo mool reok at Madangsui and then kick out some karaoke tunes by renting a private room at Gagopa. For a taste of Old New York, head north to the Grand Central Oyster Bar, then grab a Manhattan at the speakeasy-style Campbell Apartment, which is also in Grand Central Terminal. Inspired by the hotel’s natty style? Visit the Fashion Institute of Technology’s free Museum of Fashion before checking out the cutting-edge duds at cult favorite Opening Ceremony’s 28th Street location.
