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

Stayed at The Benjamin for 4 nights with our 4 daughters. From the second we arrived, Mohammed, the wonderful and kind doorman, was there to greet us and help us check in. Omar at the front desk was just as wonderful. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. Throughout the stay, we had a positive experience with all of the... More

Stayed at The Benjamin for 3 nights in July. This was our third time staying here. It is located on 50th at Lexington. There is a subway entrance just steps away. Times Square, Rockefeller Centre and 5th Avenue are about a 15 minute walk. The hotel is very clean and all staff are always helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable... More

We visited in July 2015. We chose the Benjamin as we had stayed there on a previous trip to NYC. It is very clean, well-run and in a great location in mid-town Mahattan. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and immaculate. Once again it did not disappoint. We asked for an interior room (quiet and at the back of the hotel)... More

Decent hotel for NYC standards. Good location, clean, nice bathroom, comfortable bed an quiet. Noisy ventilation system though. Hotel has only two elevators for guests, which means long wait to get down to the lobby during peak hours. One of the elevators was out of service during one of the days of my stay. After 15 min waiting for an... More

It's a good hotel. Good location, good staff, nice, clean, convenient, etc. The most important feature is that it has rooms with a terrace for not too much money. Otherwise I would have given in lower rating. The terrace is great indeed. What's not great is the corridors: uninviting. The adjacent restaurant is mediocre.

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.
