On the whole, we enjoyed our stay at the Benjamin. The greeting at reception was very friendly and check in was quick. Note that the hotel offers valet parking but it costs $55 per night for a regular car and $65 for an SUV or station wagon. Parking is off-site, so you have to give them 30 minutes notice to... More

My friend Joe Gaeta recommended I try the Benjamin for my frequent New York visits. I'm so glad he did. From the warm curbside greeting, to the welcoming front desk staff, cool lobby music and sleek, comfortable and efficient guest rooms, this hotel is fast becoming a favorite. I always have a good night sleep on its beds, that are... More

Arrived early in the morning after a red eye flight and was delighted when they had a room available at 9am. Not only was I able to get in my room but they offered an upgrade since they had the availability. The checkin desk was efficient and helpful. Internet is now complimentary and the location was perfect for meetings in... More

We really liked this hotel. The lady who checked us in was so very helpful (didnt get her name but she was pregnant!) and the rooms are nice with a great location. Found the Concierge desk really great with the exception of a very rude and sullen lady with short white blonde hair and a rather unhelpful black lady. The... More

As a family of four and with two not so small children aged fifteen and nineteen years The Benjamin was the perfect fit for us!. From the moment we arrived under the heated portico we felt at home. We... More

We had a NIGHTMARE of a last day in NY and everything went wrong..Including a taxi driver trying to rip us off. When we... More

This should get five stars, but they arc urgently working on the elevators, so one elevator is not in use, making the waits quite long at times. Otherwise, a great place to stay! Covenient, well-run, Well-situated, good staff, and prices are in line with Mnahattan hotel rates. Nicely decorated, with very comfortable beds and a pillow menu, big rooms, fast... More

First, the reservation process was easy, The staff was very attentive upon my arrival, I was upgraded to a better room, and the hotel was clean, and best, quiet although it was in heart of Manhattan! I had a suite on a top floor, with a huge living room, a... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in a suite on the 8th floor. The hotel is perfectly located for a visit to NYC and we found it to be friendly, helpful and well-equipped. The suite was big and the bed was huge. The bathroom shower was large and had twin sinks. The hotel has its own restaurant... More

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.
