Had the best weekend at The Benjamin. When we arrived to the room we had an amenity from the GM, Steve, which was such a pleasant surprise and a perfect start to our NYC Girls Weekend. The room was spacious and clean, housekeeping was punctual and friendly, and the front desk couldn't have been more helpful. Great location and most... More

The Benjamin far exceeded our expectations. The lobby was both comfortable and inviting and the staff very attentive to our every request. Even the doorman was very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and well appointed with attention to the smallest detail. We were on an upper floor and it was quiet, with a good view. We appreciated the... More

I have been here for just a few days and already I have had the best customer service I've ever experienced in my life in a New York hotel! It may be a four-star hotel, but the service is definitely five-star. From the front desk, to the security, to the concierge, to the housekeeping, the bellmen, everyone has been SO... More

We like the Benjamin. It is right in the center of Midtown. Staff is great - friendly and attentive. Rooms are nice size, clean and comfortable. Street noise was not an issue. Very reasonably priced. The National is nice bar and restaurant on first floor and the breakfast that came with room was quite good. We highly recommend this establishment.

Just returned from a six might stay in New York and our suite at The Benjamin made it perfect. We were on the 24 floor, so it was nice and quiet. Great staff, buzzing bar and restaurant. We had s lovely brunch there. And an amazing room, spacious, modern and very comfortable. We will be back!

We stayed here a few years ago and it was almost magical. This time...not so much. But, the location is wonderful, the rooms are good size and the staff is mostly friendly and helpful. My only quibbles: the NOISE from the street OMG! Whatever you do, do not ask for the city view because you get street noise even on... More

We've stayed at The Benjamin multiple times in the past few years, most recently for a full week. The location is great, close to the train station and mid-town sites. It's easy to get pretty much everywhere since there is a subway stop a few blocks north of the hotel. The hotel itself is relatively small but the rooms are... More

I stayed at The Benjamin this March for a business trip, and aside from the convenient location, the in-room kitchen facilities were what really persuaded me to give it a go. Being able to prepare my own quick meals was extremely helpful, especially with my somewhat awkward schedule, and came in handy as the room service options (though delicious) were... More

We've stayed in many 4 star hotels in this neighborhood. This was the worst. Unfriendly check in, only one elevator working, and a room with stained carpeting, poorly draining shower, overheated even with AC running (and below freezing outside) noisy, inconvenient outlets, and a depressing feel to it. For the same price, stay at the Waldorf, the Grand Hyatt, the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
