Dear tamasGreenfieldMa,

Thank you for sharing your memorable experience with us on Tripadvisor. Your recommendation is the best gift we can receive. I am so glad you and your family made the most of your visit to NYC. The Benjamin’s convenient location in the heart of Midtown on 50th Street and Lexington Avenue allows our guests to easily reach any point or attraction in NYC. With access to Grand Central just 3 blocks away and a subway station on the corner getting around NYC is effortless. Our recent promotion offering 50% of Sunday night stays was a huge hit and I hope you will visit our website to take advantage of upcoming specials as we celebrate the arrival of 2014.

I look forward to your return,
Jeff Egol
Assistant General Manager

This was the perfect hotel for our short getaway for Memorial Day. My now husband booked this for our surprise engagement trip.
The room was spotless and very spacious. We were in a corner room, but the noise level was just fine. The bed was very comfortable. It has a nice, clean modern look without feeling too sterile. The room had a nice layout, with the bedroom window facing the interior and the living area facing the street.
We were very impressed with the staff at the front desk. My fiancé called ahead after making the reservation, told them he was going to be proposing and asked if there was anything special they could do at the hotel. The staff member immediately upgraded our room, at no charge, on a holiday weekend. They also had a bottle of champagne for us that night. When we checked in, the staff were incredibly friendly and offered suggestions for where locals go for drinks instead of just recommending the normal tourist spots.
The location is great! There is easy access to the subway and not too far of a cab ride to Central Park and the Theater District. We went all over the city from this location and we never felt like it was too much of a trek. We took the subway to Tribeca, Soho, the Business District, and the 9/11 Memorial Tower, and Times Square. Very easy access to all of these locations via the subway and not too long of a distance either.
We would definitely stay here again!

Dear Rebecca S,

Congratulations! What an incredible experience and everyone at the hotel was thrilled to you chose The Benjamin to mark this special occasion. All of our rooms, studios and suites are generously sized and spotlessly clean. All 209 rooms and suites were completely renovated in the last six months by renowned architecture and interior design firm Rottet Studio to restore the grandeur of The Benjamin. I wish you and your fiancé all the best and you have a welcome invitation to return whenever your travel plans bring you back to NYC. Please contact me at jegol@thebenjamin.com.

I look forward to your return,
Jeff Egol

My wife and I consider the Benjamin as our home away from home. The rooms that we have stayed in were equipped with a small kitchenette - which includes a sink, microwave, and small fridge. The hotel is conveniently located a block off Park Avenue on Lexington which provides for an easy 5-7 minute walk to Central Park, great restaurants, and fantastic shopping on Madison Avenue. Staff is friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Joe Gaeta, General Manager, who always makes sure our stay is comfortable and enjoyable.

Good sized rooms - well furnished. Friendly and very helpful staff. Good value highly recommended.

Only one smll downside was only has two lifts which occasioanally meant a short weight.

In good part of midtown with PJ Clarkes - best bar in Manhattan just around the corner

Dear John Nigel H,

Thank you for your recent visit to The Benjamin and for taking your time to share your thoughts with us. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed the size of our rooms. With over half of them as suites we are able to offer guests great space to rest and relax in Manhattan. I am also pleased that you were able to feel the great hospitality that our associates strive to achieve. While I agree that our location offers our guests access to many of the bars and restaurants in New York, I do hope that on our next visit you will try The National. I look forward to having you with us again on your next visit to New York.

Best Regards,

Joe Gaeta,
General Manager

First time at the Benjamin and not the last, the location is great, we stayed in a suite with a terrace and didn't find the noise to be a bother. It is Manhattan after all. The suite was spacious, clean and the hotel was fantastic. Small but great workout room, comfortable beds, clean chic design.

Room Tip: Suites with balcony are pretty awesome, 22 floor was fantastic.

Dear WineAndBacon,

Thank you for your recent visit to The Benjamin. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed our Terrace Suites. I agree they do offer great space for a Manhattan room and are very enjoyable, especially in the summer months. Our fitness center was just recently renovated with all new equipment, lighting and finishes and I am delighted you found it enjoyable. I truly hope that you will think of us again on your next visit to New York.
