Bathroom was very small though. Only 2 working lift that's servicing the whole... More

It is always a gamble when you select a hotel in a city you don't know. We selected the Benjamin because its description implied 'comfortable with some character' and this proved 'spot on'. The Benjamin is in a perfect Midtown location; away from the frenetic Times Square but with enough going on to feel lively and with good access to... More

Enjoyed our stay in a Terrace suite. It was very comfortable and had plenty of room for 3 adults. We had a room overlooking 55th Avenue so not the greatest view but that is the smallest criticism. Even the sofa bed was comfy. Great location - lots of nice restaurants on 3rd Avenue. Staff were very polite and helpful.

The Benjamin is a great hotel experience and value in NYC. The location, rooms, and bar are first rate, but the service is second to none. Kudos to all of the staff for making the Benjamin so special.

The hotel is in an extremely convenient location while still being quiet enough to allow comfortable sleep. My suite was larger than most NYC one bedrooms (2 walk in closets) and so well appointed I wanted to move in. The staff was lovely and helpful and I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The hotel is in a good location and the rooms were large for NYC standards. But we found a large life cockroach running across the room and one of the folded towels in the bathroom was dirty and had obviously being used. When I told the gentleman working at the front desk that we had just killed a large cockroach... More
