    Staff was very friendly. Room was clean. Only complaint is that the construction across the street was VERY loud. I would've picked elsewhere for $400 a night but, if there was no construction I'd stay here again. Great location.

    Hi! Very excited to be coming to NYC from the UK and staying at The Benjamin, over New Year with my sons as a treat for their 21st and 25th birthdays! I have booked into a suite I think so that the boys can have a bit more privacy! Plus I snore! I can see from the reviews that the hotel can be a little noisy, could I request a higher, quieter location. Also because of the New Year timeframe, I'm a bit concerned that everywhere will be busy - should I be booking restaurants etc in advance. Haven't quite come up with a NYE plan yet - but it won't involve standing for the Ball drop! - so any recommendations from anyone who has done it, or is local would be greatly appreciated! We are meeting some friends and are thinking of somewhere nice for a gala dinner possibly in a hotel. Many thanks and looking forward to seeing NYC in the winter! Kathryn
