This is a small hotel in the heart of NYC. Great staff, clean and well-appointed rooms, and superb service. Note that this location allows you to walk everywhere you need to be. Wonderful, award-winning restaurant in the lobby (The National).

The Benjamin is my go-to hotel when visiting my company's offices in New York. It's stylish in a traditional kind of way, extremely clean, relatively quiet when the windows are shut, and convenient if you have to be in Midtown. Room service options at breakfast are excellent, although expensive. (Ess-a-Bagel is only a few steps away as an excellent morning...

Booked a king studio. Large room by NYC standards. The bathroom could use more counter space but nice shower head and there is a window in the bathroom. I love the kitchenette, microwave, plates, silverware, coffee maker and refrigerator. It's great after a day of walking around to take to the bed with cold/warm drinks and some snacks. Staff is...

Nice hotel, not a lot to look at from the outside but the rooms are nice and clean, the people were very friendly and I really don't have any complaints except the valet parking is a little expensive and slow but hey, it's New York - that is just par for the course.

The Benjamin is a great location and has a nice bar with fantastic drinks. Our room was small but nice and we loved the pillows. We visit the city as often as possible and we will certainly return to this hotel. Keep up the good work.

We had a great room at the Benjamin Hotel. The hermostat was a little funky so the room was a bit hot. Couldn't adjust it below 66. Staff was wonderful and very helpful. Bar bill was high but then We are used to western Massachusetts.

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.
