We just checked in today and was very impressed with the service, location and the appearance of the hotel. The staff is very courteous and friendly. The hotel is at excellent location and the room is very clean and big. The house keeping is very friendly and attentive. We are going to have a great stay here:-)

We usually stay at a larger property down Lex. It's closed for renovation, so we chose the Benjamin. We could not have had a better stay. The staff is professional, courteous and friendly.'May become our new favorite.

Stayed at the Benjamin based on personal recommendations and a great room rate offer. Couldn't be more satisfied. Service was top notch from start to finish. City view suite was beautiful, super clean and the bed was remarkably comfortable. Location is perfect. Did not eat at the restaurant only because this is NYC and there are hundreds of interesting places... More

During the big snowstorm we needed a place to stay for 2 or 3 days. The Benjamin was perfect in all ways. We got a corner suite for a great price.All of the staff was very happy,courteous & attentive. I can’t think of a single thing that they could improve upon. I’ve read other reviews about the street noise. This... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a long weekend in NYC and stayed in a one bedroom suite at the Benjamin. The room was spacious, well decorated and very comfortable. We were a little disappointed that the roof deck turned out to be more of a widow's walk type of opening out of the french doors, but the hotel manager generously... More

We decided to celebrate a 40th birthday at the Benjamin, and it was fantastic! The staff was amazing, the rooms were spacious and well designed, and the food at the National was world-class. Jose, the front desk manager, even went out of his way to send a nice little gift including a birthday cake as a surprise to the room!!... More

This was my first time staying at The Benjamin and the service was superb. The room was exceptionally large by NYC standards, and the thoughtfulness of the staff was much appreciated. At check-in I asked to see if any upgrades were available. While they didn't have any, they did give us a voucher for free breakfast at the hotel restaurant.... More

A return visit to the Benjamin. Excellent customer service, lovely clean comfortable room, with a good bed and choice of pillows. iPod docks are a welcome addition since I last stayed. A problem with the heating system coming on with a loud whine every hour was resolved, and I was moved to a new room very efficiently. Great to be... More

On the whole, we enjoyed our stay at the Benjamin. The greeting at reception was very friendly and check in was quick. Note that the hotel offers valet parking but it costs $55 per night for a regular car and $65 for an SUV or station wagon. Parking is off-site, so you have to give them 30 minutes notice to... More

My friend Joe Gaeta recommended I try the Benjamin for my frequent New York visits. I'm so glad he did. From the warm curbside greeting, to the welcoming front desk staff, cool lobby music and sleek, comfortable and efficient guest rooms, this hotel is fast becoming a favorite. I always have a good night sleep on its beds, that are... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
