It was a typical night over at Billy’s Antiques & Props on E. Houston St. hard by the Bowery. You’ve seen the place — arrayed on the sidewalk in front of the old green tent, a collection of stylish vintage bureaus, funky coffee tables and kitschy objets d’art for sale by offbeat characters.

Take A Time Out at the Rogers Rooms Pop-Up at the Roger Smith Hotel
We’ve seen pop-ups utilized in many ways for brands to get the most out of the experience, but the Roger Smith Hotel has brought their own unique spin on the increasingly popular concept with a hotel suite pop-up!
Part of the beauty behind the hotel is that each room is uniquely designed by hotel owner, Suzanne Knowles. We took a moment to chat with Director of Marketing, John Knowles to learn more about what inspires each room design and to give you the inside scoop on the unique pop-up hotel showroom experience at the Roger Smith Hotel:
 LG: Everyone always asks, who is Roger Smith. Who is he to you?
JK: Roger Smith is what ever you need him to be. He is creative thinking personified… He is a host here in New York and is interested in how you think.  I believe Roger Smith takes many forms and personalities. I am Roger Smith. You are Roger Smith. He is your best self. 
LG: What does it mean to have a family owned hotel business in the heart of one of the busiest hubs of NYC? 
JK: A family run hotel in New York is a unique experience. There is an awareness and familiarity to the block. To grow up with the business, then to work for the business, and then try to lead the business, the experience of working within a family run business is no picnic. The challenges can become personal as the people you are working with are family. Its a great learning envirnment.   
LG: At its heart, the Roger Smith Hotel is a home for the creative and the curious, what are some of the ongoing art series you have at the hotel?
JK: The arts have played a role in the hotels culture for years. The Corner Gallery became The Lab Gallery, and now is a Popup shop used to engage different short term business opportunities. Our spaces continue to showcase art and new shows are always popping up in the Lobby, Lily’s and the Winthrop Room on the second floor. The Artwork of James Knowles has been a staple in the Roger Smith experience for years, with Urban Crystals and Statues in the Lobby and front entrance. Our rooms showcase art and celebrate the creative impulse with its verity of experiences in the rooms. We embrace the arts and those who appreciate them. Current activity in our arts programming include The Window at 125, Art in Lily’s, The Winthrop Room and the Lobby. 

Some quick, fun and little known facts about the Roger Smith Hotel: 
Kurt Cobain got his first taste of fame in room 506, watching his premier on MTV for the first time.Jane Goodall, a friend to primates, is also a friend of the hotel and prefers to stay in room 1011.Jean Michel Basquiat was known to replace paintings with his own interpretations in his favorite room 1306. 
The Quick 411:
Daily open house: 1pm - 5pm
Dates: March 31- April 28
Hours: 10 am - 6pm
Scoop: Pop-Up Room 702 is a Double Double Suite at the Roger Smith Hotel
