    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
