The room was clean and comfortable, the location was perfect for us, and the staff, particularly Merril at the front desk, Jonathan at the door and Dre in the Dining Room went out of their way to make our stay exceptional.

We have stayed her about 5 times. We always get a one bedroom which gives you more space and two tvs. Great location in Midtown with quick access to the 6 train. Love the pillow selection and they are very responsive when you call. My home in NYC without property taxes and maintenance!!

There were light brown spots on the bed sheets. The shampoo container was empty on my first night!! Check-in staff were curt and unfriendly.

The Benjamin offers a great option to stay in NY: not to expensive, great location, nice rooms and the BEST pillows I've ever slept in! They have attractive offers so you'd better see the webpage to have the best prices.

Great location! The Benjamin is near 5th Ave. shopping and close to great restaurants. The suites are a minimum of 450 Sq. feet, luxurious according to New York standards.

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.
