This was our fourth visit to New York, and our fourth stay at The Benjamin. We choose it for our visits, since it widely meets our needs. The location and the prize are very suitable. Thanks to all the staff for making us feel at home!!

We stayed at The Benjamin hotel for 8 days this January and it was great! The rooms are spacious (huge by NYC standards), our room was around 300 sqf. The decor is nicely neutral in a palette of beiges and greys and the beds are really comfortable. Also, there is plenty of closet/storage space and nice toiletries in the bathroom....

I spent a week at this hotel. Everyone was fabulous. I had an awesome corner room. A special thanks to Paula (I'm sure I've spelled her name wrong, so sorry!) in housekeeping who went out of her way to be caring and friendly and gracious. She was like the star on top of an already beautiful Christmas tree!

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.
