The Benjamin is an all around great hotel, but it isn't a boutique hotel. The rooms are well-appointed and clean, only wish they had provided an in-room safe. The breakfast, with both hot and cold options is one of the nicest I've had; options included a smoked salmon omelette. The staff are very helpful and pleasant, and the location, right on Florida Road is a safe area with lots of restaurants and nightclubs. The only major complaint is that it is quite noisy. I think the rooms farther away from the road are much quieter, but the hotel was also doing loud maintenance which started at 8am on Friday morning, and made our wake up on Friday less than pleasant.
