We traveled a party of 19, our whole entire family for a total of 4 nights. Our room was never properly cleaned, our bathroom was dirty in our arrival, and the glass I used to drink water the first night was still in the night stand the day of our check out. The bathrooms in the basement were awful, drity... More

Definitely one of the two largest hotel rooms I've had in NYC/Manhattan (of 10-12 different hotels). We enjoyed the hotel and would stay there again with no hesitation. When in NYC, we normally stay in hotels ranked 4 to 4.5 star on the various hotel websites, and the Benjamin is in the top 3 for overall hotel quality of the... More

I was looking for a hotel for my pups 1st birthday...thankfully, I booked one Saturday night at the Benjamin. We had a wonderful experience. We stayed on the 12th floor and the room was well-sized (especially for NYC). The bed/pillows were comfortable, the staff was lovely (and very excited to play with the pup), and the location is perfect to... More

My husband and I stayed at the Benjamin and had a wonderful experience. We love the location - it's not in a touristy area but near good shopping and restaurants (the bagel place across the street is a must). The room was beautiful and the staff was great. Sarah - the concierge, knows the city like the back of her... More

I stayed here with my husband to celebrate his birthday. We both work at hotels and were impressed by this boutique hotel. The room was spacious and the kitchenette was a plus. Beautiful decor and impeccable housekeeping service. We would definitely go back!

Most of the staff are courteous but that's about the only positive note. Took awhile to check in at prime time on a Friday night. Only one person behind the counter. Problems with the room included only one lamp worked (I even tried switching bulbs and outlets but it was out of commission) so room was dark, cable didn't work... More

Sent my wife here years ago when she was pregnant. The Benjamin has a luxury spa that specializes in Pregnancy spa treatments and it has a rather large concierge pillow selection, where you get to select from a list of about 25 different pillows to try during your stay and you can choose to buy them afterwards. We ended up... More

Had an excellent experience staying at The Benjamin. The hotel's midtown location is extra convenient with easy access to the east/west and north/south subway lines. If you arrive by train, taking the #6 subway line uptown gets you to the hotel in less than 15 minutes. Taxis are also very easy to pick up at this location with so many... 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.
