We booked this hotel since it was one of the least expensive hotels in the Virtuoso program of NYC hotels. At the conclusion of our stay, we wondered why it had ever been included in the Virtuosos offerings in NYC. Let me begin by saying that the staff at this hotel did all they could to make us feel welcome.... More

We have stayed at The Benjamin many times but this time was different. We were going to experience the 9/11 Museum. We met Hartman Benson the first day. We was warm, friendly and very accommodating. Not a single thing was overlooked. We had a full time planned but as we returned early one night he suggested a walk to Central... More

Before we even arrived The Benjamin's GM Steve Sasso and his team did all they could to set our trip with my Wife and our 3 1/2 year old's trip to NY truly special. Stayed in a beyond spacious corner King Suite that was perfect for our girl to feel at home while in the city with tons of space... More

Overall very happy with our stay here while visiting for the nyc10k race and Matilda. The staff was courteous and got us to a room 3 hours early for check in. The size of the rooms were huge for New York standards and included a microwave and fridge. The National restaurant downstairs was a fabulous treat for dinner

It's not yet Halloween but my wife and I got an early scare during our recent trip to this well located historic hotel at the corner of Lexington and E. 50th Avenue. (a) Approximately $400 / night; (b) High speed internet ($14.99 per day); (c) High exterior noise attenuation; and (most annoying) (d) 15 minute or more wait for the... More

Staff was very friendly. Room was clean. Only complaint is that the construction across the street was VERY loud. I would've picked elsewhere for $400 a night but, if there was no construction I'd stay here again. Great location.

My wife and I were visiting New York for a wedding and chose to stay at The Benjamin once again - we were not disappointed. The same high quality friendly service as we remembered from previous visits and the same level of attention from Omar, the manager, who could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable and carefree...

When I visit Manhattan I stay at The Benjamin Hotel. I always look for the 4 C's....Cleanliness, Convenience, Closeness and Concierge this hotel seems to provide it all to their clientele. Gina Bianco is one of those 4 C's, Concierge, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. She will go the distance to make sure your stay meets up to your expectations! This... More

Walking into the Benjamin you feel the boutique warmth of service. Understated Elegance at its best! We received a friendly welcome from Omar the Front Desk Manager. I liked he walked away from the desk to stoop down too great a 9 year old. Very thoughtful! This trip was multi generation, grandmother, daughter, grandchild. Our one bedroom suite was perfect....

Doorman Jonathan made an immediate good impression on us. He was welcoming, informative and helpful. The 5th floor suite was quite nice, updated and very modern. However, the all night construction across the street combined with the traffic noise, caused disruptive sleep over 2 nights. Maybe a higher floor would be quieter. Location is great and the breakfast place a... More
