4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed 5 nights in august 2016. Paid approx $325USD per night for a queen suite directly via the hotel's site, which is a very fair price for a hotel of this quality. 2 room suite was big and well appointed with a very convenient kitchenette. Wifi was free and fast. Would gladly go back if I had to stay in... More

I tagged along with my wife who was on a business trip. Very comfortable room with a nice bed, plenty of storage space. She's stayed here before and already has another reservation for later this fall. I can see why she likes the location and hotel. I was able to stay in the room and watch the Olympics, step out...

My boyfriend and I booked The Benjamin on a whim based on location and rate. I am a hotel manager and usually stay at Starwood properties, but decided to try something new, and I am so glad I did! We booked 2 rooms and one was upgraded to a lovely suite. The aesthetic and design of the rooms is wonderful... More

Great value in the city. Rooms are large and quiet. Great location and friendly staff. Room was very clean with comfy bed. I'm not a huge fan of the duvet with no sheet - it was like sleeping with only a blanket. I was upgraded to a suite which was huge and very nice, but the desk and work space... More

Pros: Great location, two blocks away from 5th avenue, lovely rooms you feel as if you stepped back in time to a more luxurious new York, and the rooms were just perfect! Spacious and a beautiful view of NY, and lastly the staff was helpful and friendly. Cons: The bathrooms were old.

We stayed at the Benjamin because of their relationship with the American Girl store - we booked the American Girl Package for our daughter's sixth birthday. The Concierge arranged a personal shopping experience for her at the American Girl store, and she received an official American Girl bed and linens for her doll, waiting for her in the hotel room....

Everything about this hotel is perfect, from it's doorman it is huge luxurious beds, I genuinely couldn't ask for more than this hotel provided. If you're looking for somewhere to spend Christmas in New York City then look no further.

We appreciated the midtown location and the clean, comfortable room and bed. We didn't notice the pillow menu until the morning -- would have been fun to try! Would stay there again. My only quibble is that free wifi ought to be included. The hotel charged $15 per 24-hour connection (for multiple devices).

Researched a lot of places for our family of three so that we didn't have to pay for two rooms, and The Benjamin was totally top-notch in almost every way. Not cheap, but no suite hotels are in mid-town, especially during the week. Love the look of it, the service was great and the 'pillow program' (although we forgot to... More

The Benjamin is definitely a 4 1/2 -wish TripAdvisor would add the 1/2's! We took advantage of a TripAdvisor deal and swapped out a Hampton in in theater district for this hotel- great move! It only costed about $50 bucks more for the two nights and we had tons more space- the little kitchen is a luxury, not stocked up... 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.
