Nice room with sofa bed. Great little balcony, beautiful for pictures. Small bathroom, very small vanity. 2 tvs, great for family trip. Little kitchen with microwave and refrigerator. Great area. Lots of shops and restaurants.

We stayed here right after the Christmas holiday. Hotel was very clean and was an amazing place for families. Within walking distance of Rockefeller center and Times Square. Many kid friendly restaurants nearby as well. Would recommend this place to anyone.

I stayed over during a business trip and loved this hotel. Great location, beautiful decoration and very helpful staff. I haven't had a chance to try to restaurant (The National) within the hotel, but will definitely give it a go next time I'm in town.

I was wondering if I could enjoy the time during the stay in Benjamin NY. As I travel a lot, feeling comfortable is the first issue for my hotel decisions. This time I picked the hotel because of my friends' recommendation. After I checked in, there was no doubt about the place. The room had an excellent city view with...

My family and I stayed in two separate rooms while in town. The rooms were large and accommodating, especially since we had 3 people in one room. They were always clean and readily stocked with everything we needed. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful with tourists ideas, we are from Atlanta. It was nice to have a restaurant and bar...

The rooom was comfortable and well-appointed, and the location was great! And there was a bathtub (one of my favorite parts of the stay)! Among the staff, Elias was especially helpful, from the moment I stepped out of the cab!

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.
