The location was great!! We usually stay at the Waldorf . So this is a new hotel for us. The Benjamin's website for their dolls weekend is so amazing we switched our usual venue ,but so disappointing. None of what I ordered for the girls happens without me having to call and request what I had already paid for every... More

We stayed for six nights in a two bed two bath suite on the 16th floor, which is actually a terrace one king bed suite with a connecting room. The kitchenette was perfect for morning coffee, which was amply stocked with coffee and creamer, and the fridge and microwave were so nice to have. We bought some bagels, cream cheese,... More

I stayed here with my daughter and husband for a long weekend. This was our 2nd stay at the Benjamin and certainly not our last. As others have said, you can't beat the location. So close to great stores, restaurants, sights, and subway. Comfortable and appealing rooms. Warm and friendly staff. What I didn't expect was the responsiveness of the... More

Whether I'm staying at The Benjamin or not, Mohammed the doorman is the best. He is knowledgeable about the area and always eager to help, something not always evident at other establishments. Mohammed is a true professional who represents The Benjamin with class.

Just returned from a 5 day stay at this hotel. Staff were friendly, professional and helpful. Room was spacious and bright with a comfortable bed. We were on the 21st floor so it was very quiet. Lift was a bit of a nightmare as being on one of the higher floors there was always a wait for the lift, but... More

We travelled with our daugther, son in law and 2 toddlers, enjoyed the one bedroom suites. The rooms were comfortable and nice sized. We did request one of the rooms be on the "quieter side" of the hotel, which was helpful---street noises can be significantly disturbing to light sleepers. This was the first NYC trip for our little grand sons,... More

Great hotel! My husband and I brought our son to NYC for his 13th birthday and so we were looking for a good location and large room. We found it at the Benjamin. Very updated and clean rooms with a little kitchenette. It was perfect for us! Great service and nice touches for my son's birthday including a delicious chocolate... More

The location was great for us as we walked everywhere or a few blocks over to catch the subway. Staff were lovely and personable. The rooms themselves were fine but our bathroom was pretty tired and could do with a renovation or clean. The tiles under our toilet were discoloured to yellow which was a bit offputting. Nothing terrible but... More
