“Delightful Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

We had the pleasure of staying at The Benjamin for 1 before boarding our cruise to the Bahamas. On our next trip to NYC, we will certainly stay at The Benjamin again. This hotel was wonderful. It was quiet, comfortable, nice, staff were pleasant, linens were soft, and it was in a great location! You can walk from the hotel to many attractions. Very close to Rockefeller and not too far from Times Square and Broadway. The concierge will help you regarding which direction to go or what transportation to take.

The National restaurant had a wonderful breakfast, and I am looking forward to trying their dinner in the future.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Manhattan. Great job!

Location of the Benjamin is wonderful and easy access to everything. Staff was very professional, but most of all our room was exceptional. The size of the one bedroom suite was spacious and comfortable. Will definitely will return.

Large comfortable room in midtown one block east of Waldorf. Very convenient. Kids loved and well used the pillow menu. By NYC standards the room was very large. Would stay again. Subway stop one block away.

The Benjamin Hotel was such a wonderful surprise. I found the hotel on trip advisor and took a chance. It was wonderful from start to end. Coming from the suburbs it took a bit to get used to the city noise. The Benjamin staff was top notch. They really cared about our stay. We had a one bedroom suite and loved to find the mini kitchen and loved the open living space. We did use the pillow service and enjoyed the fact that we could bring a little bit of home comfort to our hotel. It is located in a great area, easy to walk to great locations in the city.

Bed was super comfortable, fluffy huge towels and great shower, large and nicely appointed rooms, and the service was friendly, helpful, and courteous. Excellent staff for sure, and the breakfast at The National was very nice. Location, location, location says it all too...great neighborhood, bagels at Ess-a on 3rd for breakfast on the go.
Highly recommend for business or pleasure.

This is one of the Finer Hotels among many that I have booked which met all challenges of a First Class Stay. We all loved the decor, funiture,shower, the view as well as the comfort of the bed and sleeper sofa!
