Hotelier and hospitality consultant Steven Kamali has orchestrated significant changes to the Roger—formerly known as Hotel Roger Williams. The hotel is owned by JRK Hotel Group, whose president, John Flannigan, hired Kamali to rebrand the hotel. The rebranding grew out of an imaginary character and son to Roger Williams, Roger Jr. Inheriting the hotel from his father, Roger Jr. balances the classic, historical nature of the property while providing a casual chic perspective.
Upgrades to the hotel include the Parlour, curated by Kamali and designed by Anna Busta to blend modern elements with old world touches. Kamali also developed new F&B concepts, including a full bar lounge and an intimate dining space on the mezzanine level that’s based on the modern American bistro. In addition, refurbished guestrooms were unveiled in June.
This June, the Roger introduced the sophisticatedly chic Parlour Lounge and bistro-style restaurant. The Roger tapped acclaimed designer Anna Busta to create a chic, inviting atmosphere. Chef Julie Farias, of Goat Town, offers an inventive menu of contemporary American cuisine and famed mixologist Johnny Swet has created an artisanal cocktail menu. With our new Flatiron District restaurant and lounge, the Roger is the go-to Madison Avenue dining destination for locals and travelers alike.
Every morning, guests are treated to the daily Breakfast Pantry, serving regional delicacies such as fresh croissants and pastries from Ceci Cela, jams and granola from Sarabeth’s, salmon from Petrossian, H&H bagels and a Roger blend of coffee from Allann Brothers in Oregon. We also offer European meats and cheeses, scrambled eggs, andouille and chicken sausage, hot oatmeal, and a medley of fresh fruit. Whether you choose to enjoy a cocktail at our new Parlour Bar or stay in for the night, the Roger has you covered when it comes to food. Enjoy 24-hour room service so you can dine in your robe out on the on your private terrace.
These boutique New York City hotel rooms with private balconies offer a completely different vantage point, with 50 to 300 square feet of premiere outdoor space. Located on various floors throughout the hotel, The Terraces boast the same welcoming, deluxe accommodations and intuitive amenities found in every guestroom at The Roger, but with the added luxury of panoramic Manhattan skyline views and fresh air.
