We were the people who LOVED the 2 bedroom penthouse suite a few years ago. For the past 2 years it was GREAT! This year they changed it to a 1 bedroom penthouse. Now if you book a 2 bedroom suite you get a MUCH MUCH smaller room with a TINY balcony. BUYER BEWARE! You can get a MUCH better... More

Stay at the Benjamin. You will not be disappointed. Location was great (mid town) to subway, cafes, restaurants, and drugstores. The best attribute of the Benjamin Hotel is its staff, from housekeeping to front desk to doorman (Elias is the best-even making sure that I got my early early wake up call for the ride to JFK),

After comparing several similarly priced hotels we settled on The Benjamin for a week in New York in July. Thrilled with our decision. Centrally located to everything, including the fabulous Grand Central Station Food Hall. The the one week extended stay 20 % discount really made this hotel exceptional value for this Kiwi family and the living room with rollaway... More

This was our second stay at the Benjamin. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room was quite comfortable and clean. The location was perfect for us. The metro is within easy walking distance. The Metro Cafe is even closer and great for a quick breakfast or lunch. Two drugstores close-by and Ess A Bagel is right around the... More

as a frequent traveler to NYC, I often stay at the Benjamin. It is a boutique hotel with a staff and amenities that make you feel welcomed and pampered. It is a great contrast to the hustle bustle of the streets right outside, with its helpful "can do" staff and beautiful and comfortable rooms. A definite "go to" for people... More

The hotel is quite nice and service was excellent with the hotel personel particularly Elias being exceptional. They also had issues with their elevators which made wait times painful on occasion. The room and beds can be made a little more welcoming and comfortable so would say pretty good experience but can be improved. The hotel is centrally located so... More

The Benjamin is a great hotel in a very central area of New York. The rooms and hotel spaces are very comfortable and elegant, and all non smoking! Perfect for business trips and reasonable prices for the quality offered! I strongly suggest it for anyone traveling to New York!

Our stay at the Benjamin Hotel was really good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Concierge service was wonderful. The only negative is that it was a little pricey, but that's probably true of any Manhattan hotel.
