I booked the Benjamin Suite and connecting Terrace Suite on a Sunday night for Super Bowl 50. The hotel was extremely accommodating from the start and showed a genuine interest in my plans and how they could help. Albona made my reservations quickly and passed my information on to the right people. They also sent up a wonderful bottle of... More

We had a wonderful experience at The Benjamin! It is conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan, within walking distance of Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, 5th Avenue shops, American Girl Store, Times Square, etc. Manhattan is set up like a grid, so it's "walkable". Just keep in mind that city blocks are long, but there is so much to see that... More

I wanted a boutique hotel close to theatre but not amidst the chaos of Times Square. I got a little gem with impeccable service-- from check in to concierge to the doorman to Room Service to housekeeping. The housekeeping team deserves a special shout out. When I returned to the room after a day on the run sight- seeing, I... More

I've just had the pleasure of staying in the Benjamin Suite Hotel for 10 nights. The only negative I cam mention is the extortionate charge for wifi access, which I thought was nearly a given these days. The rest is great - everyone I met who worked in the hotel made me feel they wanted to make my stay great.... More

To say that this is our home away from home in NYC is an understatement. After falling in love with in on our visit last year in Feb 2015, it was the automatic choice for our second visit to NYC in 12 months.

Every room in this boutique hotel has a small kitchen and all the amenities you would want in a hotel room. The bathrooms are really small but more than adequate. Staff is exceptional and their National Restaurant is usually filled with locals. Prices are fair, not outrageous and if you don't want to eat there, you can go next door... More

The location is great for this smaller hotel in thee big city. Rooms are always quiet and clean, service is great and the food at the National is really good so if you are meeting someone for lunch, drink or dinner, you don't have to go far.

We had a perfect stay with all the staff trying their best to make it a memorable one! The balcony was great as we both are smokers and NYC is not the easiest town for that. Room service was fast and delicious! Thank you folks!

I have been a guest at The Benjamin many times over the past several years while conducting business in New York. I have never been disappointed - the staff, the room, the service and the food are all top notch. The location is convenient and the neighborhood provides everything that you need, if you don't care to be adventurous.

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.
