Had a great time at the Benjamin. Brilliant, helpful Desk staff, nothing was too much trouble. Ideal location great for 5th avenue and Cental Park. A short walk to theatre district so you are just far enough away from the busy areas. The room was much bigger than all other rooms We have stayed in in New York. Very Clean,... More

The Benjamin hotel is superb and beyond clean everything is immaculate and the staff are brilliant. I would definitely re-book there. It is close to 5th avenue for shopping and you can walk straight down to Central Park and the subway is 5 minutes away to access 9/11 and other areas of New York. Yellow cabs are also available in...

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 were traveling into the city to have a special weekend with our son. We were originally booked at the Westin but after investigating and speaking with reservations at the Benjamin, we learned about the Winks Kids club where the kids receive a robe($35)special pillow and milk and cookies one night. We were also made aware of the pillow menu.... 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
