I gave this hotel 4 stars for three reasons: first, our king suite was large (a true 2 room suite), second, the location (50th and Lexington) was great; third, the price was relatively reasonable for Manhattan (around $255 a night before taxes; about $290 per night with taxes). Some other pluses: the fitness center was respectable and there were complimentary... More

Amazing place to stay where everyone was SO helpful, friendly and caring (especially front desk representatives and Mohammed). I would recommend the Benjamin to anyone. It was clean, luxurious, in a good location, and had anything and everything you could ever need or want. The gym was convenient, as well as the spa and the nice restaurant, the National. The...

Let me preface this by saying that my firm booked this hotel and I would not have done it myself. I thought this was pretty poor for a business stay. The amenities are the same as in any other hotel-- there's a bed, TV, desk + chair, and bathroom. Maybe because its Manhattan that this counts like a lot of... More

The location of the hotel was the original reason for choosing the Benjamin, but I shall return due to the warm and professional staff. I would like to thank Micaela, our Banquet Manager, Omar at the Front Desk, and Mohammad who always kept an eye out for us! These three represent a team of attentive and responsive personnel, who truly... More

July 25, 2015 I was given a weekend getaway as a birthday gift, and it was to The Benjamin in NYC. I was amazed at the archirecture and elegance of this hotel. Upon entering my husband and I were instantly greeted and asked for our bags. We checked in early, which was not a problem at all for the staff... More

Absolutely love this place. Architecturally stunning. Staff is extremely helpful. The National restaurant is perfect for business meetings or a drink after a long day of them!! I come back to this hotel monthly when I'm in New York on business. Feels like a home away from home. Rooms are clean and spacious. I'm usually there a week at a... More

This was my first time staying at the hotel and it did not disappoint. The check in process was quick and easy and Omar, the manager, was quite pleasant and helpful. The room was spotless and very spacious, by NYC hotel room standards. Four people could easily stay in the Deluxe Studio Suite. The bed was super comfy and the... More

The Benjamin provides great value: very very nice hotel, offering space, at a reasonable price point... well, reasonable for New York. We were in the city for a week: three of us to start including my 70-something mom. The hotel was a great set up for our group as we grew to a 2 bedroom suite by the end of... More

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.
