I want to share our experience when we hosted the Rehearsal Dinner on June 15, 2012 for son’s wedding at the Roger Smith Hotel. The event was a great success and all the guests had nothing but praises for the evening and the setting and arrangements. The open bar on the terrace with the Manhattan skyline on a very June evening was magnificent. Darbar Grill catered the appetizers and food that was perfect and thoroughly enjoyed by all guests. The manager and his staff were very courteous and friendly and made everybody feel comfortable and enjoy the evening. The hotel was also very gracious in allowing us to use all the time we needed to arrange and decorate the room where the dinner party was hosted. I would like to highly recommend to anyone who may want to host similar events in Manhattan to seriously consider what the Roger Smith Hotel has to offer first.
