Hotel is centrally located with very friendly staff. We spent the weekend in NYC and enjoyed our time at the Benjamin it's a great boutique hotel. The only drawback is the size of the bath. The kitchen was a nice touch as well but not necessary. I would stay here again.

I come often to this hotel for business trips. As I usually stay for a minimum of 5 days, I need a hotel where I can feel being home out of home. The Benjamin is the One!
The room are nice and clean, the restaurant and the bar are very good and the guest service is amazing. Special thanks to Khady who is always doing her best to make your stay there such a treat that you will want to come back again and again!

This was our first time in New York. The location made it an easy walk to great Manhattan highlights including Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park. We were there with our 5 year old, so having a central located hotel was key for us. The service was excellent and pleasant. Our room was great! We had a one bedroom suite which included a bedroom for privacy, a living room with a sofa bed, and a tiny "kitchenette" with a nice size refrigerator. The room was classy, clean, very comfortable....almost like having a small apartment in the heart of the city. Would choose to stay there again.

Flawless - from the moment the doors are opened, the hotel crew is 100% taking care of you. True smiles from Cora at reception, lively bar & restaurant and postcard suites - and that is not even the half of it! Because, our family chose it for its location; at the heart of Manhattan, PERIOD!! starting with, the restaurant Noire being so close I couldn´t believe it. No need to search further- truly!!

I stayed at The Benjamin Hotel from 11/28/12 through 12/02/12 and was given great and detailed service the entire time! The concierge was extremely accomodating - I specifically want to mention Angelo Roa who went above and beyond to make us all feel welcomed and cared for. Excellent service all around!

Room Tip: The suites have an awesome view from their balconies!

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights for our first trip to NYC. We had a fabulous trip, in no small part due to the management and staff at the Benjamin. They made us feel welcome with special attention, the concierge made excellent restaurant recommendations, and we were sad to leave. Right across from the 6 and 3 blocks from other lines that make it quick to get ANYWHERE. When we come back to NYC for our second NYC trip next year, I can take hotel planning off of my to do list. Why look elsewhere when you find a gem like the Benjamin?
