My wife and I recently had 6 nights at the Benjamin with our 2 year old. We had a 1 bedroom suite which was absolutely lovely. Gym was good enough for a city hotel. They have a children's sleep program I had emailed them to have this requested in advance but that wasn't done...they give your child a toy and... More

Beautiful Hotel in a perfect location. Staff is wonderful. We have stayed here many times on our trips to New York and have never been disappointed. Wonderful at Christmas time. Easy walk to Rockefeller Center and other Christmas attractions.

The Benjamin is a very good hotel. The front desk was cordial and welcoming. Our two-bedroom room was clean and comfortable. Overall, the hotel had a cool and vibrant vibe. The 24-hour gym was small but well equipped and I appreciated that it was open 24 hours. The spa was outstanding as my 60-minute massage was one of the best... More

A great hotel to stay with your children. Spacious, clean rooms, helpful staff, free soft toys for little ones and small bathrobes, as well. Wonderful location, quiet, good beds and a choice of a pillow. Paradise!

The staff at the Benjamin Hotel and at their restaurant, The National, were very friendly and wonderfully accommodating. Our family stayed at the Benjamin as a Christmas gift for our three daughters, and to celebrate my husband's birthday. Beds were comfortable, hallways were quiet all night, food was delicious and the location was convenient for Christmas shopping, walking, and seeing... More

Decided to try this hotel on the recommendation of a friend. We typically stay at larger hotels with more amenities. We were delightfully surprised at the room, which was more of a suite. Spacious sitting area, comfortable bed. Bathroom was small, but manageable. Amenities are scarce, and the elevators can get backed up when there is any kind of a... More

The people who work here are very professional, friendly and helpful. We have stayed here several times, and have always enjoyed the hotel. The location is ideal for public transportation, and for getting around to various attractions on foot.

The Benjamin has all of the qualities of a fine small hotel: an attentive and helpful staff, warmth, elegant but not ostentatious public spaces. The welcome paradox - spacious, well-appointed rooms! I can't return to the "old" Algonquin and The Dorset is only a memory - we'll return to The Benjamin whenever we visit New York City.

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.
