We checked in to be escorted to a wonderful and spacious room with a large and well-equipped bath, very comfortable bed. All were spotlessly clean. Over several days the staff couldn't be more helpful and thoughtful. This is true luxury in a great location which is only a couple of blocks from Rockefeller Center with the greatest shopping in the... More

The Benjamin’s location was perfect for our sight-seeing weekend in NYC. The hotel is located on the corner or 50th and Lexington so you can walk to Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building and Times Square pretty easily. My mom, my sister and I stayed in a Queen Double Suite and the room was spacious by New York Standards, it... More

This is one of the best hotels in our overall travel experience. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We made full use of the Concierge with great results for dining and theater. The size is perfect and the location for our purposes was very convenient. Many great places within walking distance and convenient to airports. Facilities... More

Aside from the Benjamin being a lovely, clean, very accessible hotel, the customer service is outstanding. I had just purchased a new dress a week ago and of course, mistakenly left it in a drawer when I checked out this weekend. I made a call and left a voicemail to housekeeping several hours after check out, and Dana called me... More

Stayed five nights in October in a King Suite and we were super impressed with the staff. They were friendly, efficient, cheerful, knowlegeable, and not only followed through with our requests but also followed up to see that we were satisfied. Never a single trace of a grumble. Whoever runs their HR department should be congratulated for the evenness of... More

Great staff - very friendly and attentive. Excellent service and extraordinarily family-friendly. Highly recommend to family and friends for their own NYC adventures. We will be back. We had stayed at The Kimberly (next door) in the past and found the staff and service much better here.

This was our first ever visit to New York and we had a fabulous 15 days in this lovely boutique hotel (October 2014). Our corner room suite (with a HUGE bathroom) was on the 12th floor overlooking 50th street, and was very comfortable and tastefully furnished. The chairs, carpets, lamps etc were quite obviously very good quality. We never, ever... More

My only request on check-in was a quiet room. My room overlooked 50th Street with a view of Lexington Ave. Quiet it was not, with traffic noise through the night. No top sheet on the bed, a malfunctioning coffee maker with not one, but two, dirty coffee cups, and a gym at 77 degrees made my stay uncomfortable and very... More
