I was in the mood for a well deserved, last-minute staycation for my birthday weekend recently, so my friend and I booked a room at The Benjamin Hotel. This being New York City, I just expected the room would be tiny, but upon check-in, I was surprised at how spacious it really was. The bed was to die for, and...

I have been staying here for years, and the staff has always been terrific. Not only helpful, but they make you feel like they know you and appreciate your staying with them. My housekeeper on the 24th floor, Diana, always asks about my son and makes me feel right at home. She is great, as are all the people there.

This hotel was close to where I needed to be.Very accomodating services and staff. Nice fitness center with just enough cardio machines and free weights for a good workout or on the go! The food at the National was delicious but a little pricey. Great amenities, and special services offered! Will return!

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.
