Highly recommend the king suite. Good value and space for the city. My husband left his phone in room one day and Daisy from housekeeping was kind to go up and look for it while we were out. Phone found. Gina and Sarah were very helpful with tours and dinner reservations. All the staff are very professional and welcoming. Room... More

Last week I stayed for four nights at the Benjamin Hotel. The first morning I was awakened at 4:45 am due to construction noise on the next block. I called down to the front desk to express my concern. A night employee, Abraham, immediately came and showed me three alternative suites into which I could move to escape the noise.... More

Stayed here for one night as we attended a medical conference. Although the room was adequate, we were not provided with the requests that they offered us at the time of the booking. On my confirmation I was guaranteed a double queen deluxe studio. On a questionnaire I was given the option to request an upper floor with a view.... More

We travel to NYC frequency and usually stay in one of three hotels. This is always my first choice, but we stay at whichever makes the most sense for what we are doing.

The room was large and spacious with ample room for the 4 of us. It was perfectly appointed and exceptionally clean. We also had a great view up Lexington. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

In order to merit being in this price category, a hotel has to offer a certain level of style and service. Unfortunately, the Benjamin comes up short. Rooms are fairly basic. The vaunted kitchen facilities in my room (which suggested it would permit eating in the room in at least minimal comfort) consisted of nothing more than a microwave parked... More

Location is a huge part of a weekend trip to NYC. I found The Benjamin to be an ideal base for all kinds of exploring. The double room itself was comfortable and spacious with a kitchenette and generous bath. Even better staying just an elevator ride down to a hip and tasty restaurant. Super friendly front desk.

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.
