I booked the Benjamin by chance (a Hotwire deal), but I'm glad to have found this midtown gem. I travel for business quite a bit and it's great when a hotel understands their clientele. The little luxuries like the "sleep menu" made a big difference. They provided your choice of pillow (water pillow, temper-pedic, back support) with other amenities (lavender turn-down service, sound machine) and when I came back for a midday nap, they provided an "executive nap kit."
The rooms aren't as contemporary or up to date as some of the other hotels I've stayed in, but they are a nice size and very clean. The staff is overly friendly and accommodating.
The only reason they don't get the full 4-stars is because the rooms are slightly dated and they charge $15 a day for wi-fi. But it's a great option for business travelers who appreciate these perks.
