My husband and I took our teenagers to Manhattan for Spring Break. One of them was looking forward to going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The other wanted to see as many Broadway shows as she could fit into the stay. The Benjamin was located in just the right spot for us to feel comfortable letting them head out...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 March 2017

This was a great choice for our recent stay in New York City. We had an amazingly comfortable room, but what was most amazing was the "pillow menu". Wow, what a choice of comfort! I also want to commend this hotel on their great staff, in particular, Jesse, who went above and beyond to make our stay at The Benjamin...

If I had to rate only my first day front desk experience it would be a 5 star. I arrived early morning (may 15th) and front desk (Jennifer?) was outstanding. However, next day when going for breakfast there was no room. Also, upon checkout there was a mistake in the bill, which was corrected after I noticed it, but took...

First stay, having seen the hotel and rooms when one of my daughters was staying recently. I liked the small size, intimacy of reception and staff in lobby area and the generous room with kitchenette. Pleasant staff and it was clear that there are plenty of regular guests just observing the interaction at the front desk. Great location and easy...

This is, by New York standards, a small apartment hotel. The suits are lovely - classically styled rather than hyper-modern - but classy and certainly very comfortable. The service is good. I especially liked the doorman who was super helpful in asking if we needed directions or a cab or anything. It snowed heavily when we stayed (March 2017) and...

Located in midtown and close to everything. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was bigger than expected given this was New York City. Furnishings were up to date and the quality you would expect from. Boutique hotel in New York City. Excellent overall, and would definitely go back.

Nice hotel, but there were issues with hot water- takes a while to get it, and it ran out quickly. Staff is attentive and courteous, location is great. Didn't make it to the restaurant. There is a luncheonette 2 doors down - great for breakfast.

As I was booking for business, I wanted to choose somewhere which was convenient and quiet. Although the hotel is on 50th and Lex, it's actually a relatively quiet location. It wasn't really busy outside the hotel and my room, facing the back, was nice and quiet. We arrived early so we couldn't check in but they did allow us...

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.
