I have been staying at this hotel for the last 15 years. My experience has always been positive. The hotel staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The rooms are generous in size relative to most NYC hotels. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the best offering is that you can choose from a variety of pillow offerings.

I was always intrigued by the Benjamin but had never stayed here. I usually travel to NY on business, but this time I was on holiday with my wife and our 2 sons and we needed a larger unit. We were looking for a Midtown location, a larger unit or suite with (hopefully) some form of kitchen. Our one bedroom... More

The Benjamin is a solid 4-star hotel with comfortable accommodations and a stellar customer service team. They were easily (and I've traveled a great deal in my lifetime) the most professional, helpful, warm, friendly and accommodating hotel staff with whom I've ever dealt. GENUINELY so. It's not a swanky hotel, per se, but it is attractive, has a lovely adjacent... More

...a broken elevator can ruin a hotel experience! The building is old and therefore there are only 2 small elevators but in a hotel that is 20+ floors, when 1 breaks down it is completely unacceptable for any extended period of time. We arrived on Friday afternoon and both were working but 1 was out of service all of Saturday... More

The physical plant is run down and old. Doesn't look like updated in much time. One of two elevators broker all 3 days I was there. Other elevators didn't seem to work right. Computers in business office mind bogglingly slow.

I first stayed at the Benjamin 13 years ago and have returned numerous times over the years, mostly on business. Until the last year or so it's been great, then good, and now, not so much. An old hotel that I believe was last refreshed over a decade ago, the physical plant and approach to service are both problem areas:... More
