The Benjamin provided us with a clean, comfortable, quiet respite for our five night stay in the big city. We found the staff to be very helpful, especially Tom, the concierge. The room service was expedient and the food was fresh, warm and delicious. Our room was very clean with crisp white bedding which made for a great night's sleep.... More

I had not stayed at the Benjamin since some time over ten years ago, but went back when it showed up at my travel agent as a good priced deal for a business trip. Room was spotless and large, kitchenette is a very helpful feature (with microwave) and the "sleep menu" and information about how to get a good night's... More

A real find in a great part of town and The National Restaurant which is part of the hotel was fabulous. I loved the little kitchenette in the room - it meant you could get a few little supplies in. The bed was really comfortable and the room was decorated in a really nice calm way. It was a real... More

We had a short time frame to find a hotel for this trip so I took a chance and made a bid on Priceline. This is the hotel that accepted the bid and I am really glad they did. It is small and old so the hallways are a bit narrow and the elevators are slow but the room as... More

How can you go wrong when, over the course of a weeks stay, the staff of your hotel meets your every request quickly and with good cheer. From the door to the cleaning staff, I cannot say enough good things about the ability and attitude of the staff. Our suite was quite large. The furniture, not new, but simple, clean... More

I stayed in a suite at The Benjamin in mid January when I was in NYC to attend the winter meetings of The American Psychoanalytic Association. The meetings were great but a real high light of the trip was my stay at The Benjamin. The suite was spacious and comfortable…the bed was probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in.... More

The Benjamin Hotel is a jewel in Midtown Manhatten. Clean, beautiful rooms with romantic balconies, kitchenettes and a friendly and welcoming staff. Don't bother with any other place. I can't wait to return!

Our family of five enjoyed the spacious accommodations. The rooms are decorated with simple functional furnishings, very comfortable bedding and room service breakfast was delicious. Professional door men, front desk staff and housekeeping. We had dinner in the adjoining restaurant "The National" which was good but the service was way to casual for the prices. When I am paying over... More

We frequently stay at the Benjamin Hotel whenever we are in NYC and never disappointed. Customer service is outstanding starting with Jonathan who greets you at the door! The hotel is located in an ideal part of town. Close to everything, but not in the middle of the hustle or bustle. The only issue we experienced this visit is that... More

Was excited to stay here after all the great reviews. Have to say, I was somewhat disappointed. Rooms are very averagely appointed with little attention to the small details. The connected hotel bar and restaurant was overpriced and poor service. An Okish hotel, but you can do much better in Manhattan. A poor effort.

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.
