Westhampton Beach, New York
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Still our favorite place to stay in NYC. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with an outside deck. The staff welcomed us back, and left fresh fruit in our room. Love it here. A true Spoiler for any other hotel in NYC.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 March 2017

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! I also want to commend this hotel on their great staff, in particular, Jesse, who went above and beyond to make our stay at The Benjamin...

I am a balcony addict!!! Must have on any trip, especially in a city visit. The Benjamin's terrace suite is as perfect as it gets! A lovely 4-seat table overlooking Lexington, with beautiful buildings in all directions. Further, the location is just exquisite for NYC: easy to get uptown or down by subway just moments away.

We stayed for 4 days at The Benjamin Hotel and have no complains whatsoever. Resort is very clean, staff is super nice and location is perfect, within walking distance to 5th Ave, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Central Park and Times Square. Price is reasonable compared to most NY hotels. Very pleased with our stay, would definitely go back.

Love love ❤️ love. Classy, clean, charming. So family friendly, the rooms are spacious. We had a king size bedroom suite, which included the pullout sofa bed. The kitchenette is adorable and so functional, with microwave, fridge, and sink. The shower bath was clean and full of white marble, and well stocked. We requested the turndown service for the sleeper...

The Benjamin is a great place to stay. In midtown, lots of walking around the area with restaurants and shops. The hotel has spacious rooms.The service is excellent. The bathrooms are a bit tight and could be improved a bit. The restaurant inside is good (went for breakfast) but pricey. Overall a great stay.,

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.

“I asked for a room on a lower floor so I could just walk downstairs and not have to wait for the elevator; they accommodated me with a room on the 3rd floor near a stairwell that led straight to the lobby. It was also just down the hall from the fitness center. Very convenient.”
