We went for 10 days and had a really good time. We booked through expedia and got a great deal. For the price of a standard room in the last hotel we used we got a large fresh suite at the Benjamin. The room was large and clean, kitchen was useful size, bedroom was well fitted and very comfy. Bathroom...

Complementarily upgraded to a suite, which was spacious for NYC. Clean, comfortable place to work. Easy access to subway, and if you need to be in midtown then convenient. Staff was friendly and helpful. Bed too soft for my taste, and food ordered from room service was substandard (chicken over cooked, like I got something sitting under a heat lamp;...

We stayed at the Benjamin one night while in the process of moving out of NYC. I've used the hotel for work guests before so was familiar with it but had never stayed here myself. The hotel is comfortable and classy and well-located in midtown. The restaurant downstairs is nice, and bonus that there is an Irving Farm Coffee Roasters...

A fantastic hotel! I would say it's good for families and business. Great restaurant downstairs, great breakfast, fantastic rooms and hotel location is one of the best. The value for money is one of the best you find. The ambience and decoration of this hotel makes your NY experience so much more special. The service was very good. I cannot...

I've been staying at The Benjamin for the past 15 or so years. I love the location, staff and facilities in each room. The combination of these attributes and the service consistency is a winning formula. New this year is a $30 Facilities Charge. I learned of it when booking my reservation for a family trip to the hotel. I...

We stayed in a terrace suite, which would have been AMAZING had we not stayed during the winter! Our room was large (separate living room area and kitchenette with fridge, sink and microwave), comfortable and not the least bit stuffy. Location is great and an easy area to catch a cab. A nice surprise was the BEST in-room mini-bar snacks...

My teenage daughter and I stay here every year and it never disappoints. It is hard to find good NYC hotels that offer rooms with two queen beds AND an excellent location AND a restaurant as good as The National. The concierge has always been terrific and the doormen always warm, helpful and welcoming. The room size is good (for...

Was in NYC for business Jan 27-Jan 30, and The Benjamin was booked through my work colleagues. I normally book all my hotel stays, so I had to trust that the choice made would be suitable for me.

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.
