I'm delighted I opted to stay at the Benjamin. Hotels in NY can be touch and go, even the ones that purport to be 4*, this was everything it said it would be and more. There were a couple of little glitches, which can happen anywhere, but the way they were resolved were just off the scale in good customer...

Stay at the Benjamin and you will not regret it! Great location, great service, you will feel pampered, and don't miss out on room service! I recommend a suite but all rooms are nice. Recent weekend stay was so quiet I forgot that I was in NYC! Enjoy!!!

We have stayed here repeatedly, and I'd like to continue to stay here due to its location and helpful assistance each day from doorman Angelo; however, there are a few things that the Benjamin is lacking!!! This last trip, our family was enjoying having dinner in our room, and around 7:45 we received a call from the front desk that...

This was a great choice for our recent stay in New York City. We had an amazingly comfortable room, but what was most amazing was the "pillow menu". Wow, what a choice of comfort!

The Benjamin is a ideally located peaceful hotel, perfect for a relaxing stay in a busy city. I really looked forward to returning to our room! Room was pretty spacious as NYC hotels go and the addition of a refrigerator, microwave is a nice feature. It is also a good value. My only suggestion is to raise the lights in...

Last weekend I arrived, with great excitement, at The Benjamin for a weekend getaway of museum hopping and to see a play. When I checked in, to my horror, I was informed that I had booked, and paid in advance through Orbitz, for the previous month ( the 10th, 11th, and 12th also fell on a weekend); I was essentially...

We stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip and found the location very good to both the office but also the sites. Pros: Rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Good hot water on demand. Great location. Cons: A little older thus smaller bathrooms. (not a problem for us but for larger people may be an issue) Lower floor...

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!!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
