The location of the hotel was excellent! The doorman and bell staff were great, however the rest were just average. Huge recommendation: request sheets immediately. They are only provided "upon request."

We enjoyed our time at the Benjamin very much. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The location was perfect for us too. We'd definitely stay here again and next time we plan to go to the restaurant too!

Excellent hotel with good amenities and great location. Try the National restaurant, quite nice. The hotel has old time charm but modern amenities, very clean a little pricey but nearly worth every pennies.

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.
