I booked a one bedroom suite at the Benjamin for a very good rate under one of their promotions. The rate was a much better value than any other comparable hotel suite. I traveled with my spouse and 2 young children, and the one bedroom suite with kitchenette was perfect for a family. Kids slept in the pull-out sleeper sofa,...

I stayed at this hotel for a week during a business trip to New York and it was the best hotel I stayed in. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, especially for Manhattan, the service was of a high standard and the bar restaurant was a lovely place to spend time after work.

I had a great stay at the Benjamin. It all started with the extremely helpful and friendly staff member, Mohamed. From day one, everyone made the stay enjoyable. The location is great and there's a great restaurant right in the hotel. You may want to request an interior room, as Lexington Ave. is extremely busy all night long.

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.
