Room was lovely and staff very helpful and friendly. It was a great location for Broadway and the centre of town and only 1 minute walk to the subway. If you want to book a restaurant the hotel are happy to recommend places to eat and book a table for you.

Enjoyed our stay at The Benjamin. Great place to stay for a few days in NYC as each room has a kitchenette. Room was well appointed, quiet and comfortable. Staff was helpful. Great location. Had breakfast at The National and really enjoyed it.

I stayed here this past winter and had an absolutely superb stay. The housekeeping staff is incredible and catered to us in every way. Every detail of our room was impecable.

Reviewed 7 May 2014

We were pleasantly surprised on check in -when the front desk upgraded our room because what we originally booked was not correct and when we showed our disappointment they immediately upgraded us. I should correct the statement because first they offered a free breakfast to make our mistake better but then when we still were unhappy an upgrade followed.

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.
