4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our first time in NYC and we stayed a brilliant hotel. The location was convenient as it was only a few blocks away from pretty much everything and being on a corner made things just that little bit easier. When we first arrived we were given a room on the 6th floor around the back with a view of the... More

Stayed here for one night even though I live in NYC. We had a one bedroom suite on the 24th floor. Great views of midtown. So many windows and very quiet. Water pressure was great. Cannot forget about the amazing outdoor terrace that wrapped around the bedroom!!

As a single woman traveling to New York to meet friends staying at another hotel The Benjamin was a perfect retreat. The room was super comfy. Considering it was NY i was surprised that the space was as ample as it was. The decor has recently been updated and all was immaculate and well appointed. The bathroom even had a... More

First the positives: good location at Lex and 50th, and great door/bell staff. Very friendly, work hard to be helpful and chase taxis down with gusto. We paid for an oversized room and got a decent sized room for NYC with a tiny bathroom. For $400/night with taxes, expected more. The not so great: Housekeeping was having a bad four... More

The Benjamin is one of my top hotels in NYC. Great mid-town location, friendly staff & clean, comfortable rooms. The beds are comfy & the pillow menu is the greatest! I'm never disappointed with the Benjamin!

We had a balcony suite and while not cheap, it was worth every penny. The room was huge by NYC standards and having a kitchenette and a balcony made it seem like our own pied a terre. The bed was also extremely comfortable. The bathroom is quite small, but really, having all of the other extra space more than made... More

I had the opportunity to get theatre tickets with a friend for shows that won Tonys(!), so of course I stayed in my favorite home away from home...the Benjamin. Very convenient for walking to the theatre district and the Lincoln Center, subway across the street, and great restaurants both on the property and nearby. Very helpful staff and very welcoming...

Our stay at The Benjamin was comfortable and the service excellent. Located in a very nice section of Manhattan with great entertainment, restaurants and rooftop bars all within easy reach. The doormen, bell staff and housekeeping were very friendly and helpful.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
