We got a summer rate of ~$375 for a 500 square foot suite with comfy sitting room, great bed, and kitchenette. Very quiet room made for great sleeping, as did location just out of the hubbub of more central midtown.

Spacious and clean! For our family of 4 we choose the Jr suite which was perfect! My daughter loved the pillow selection and the plush owl - it made her stay! Parents like the spacious clean room and fabulous location away from the craziness of Times Square but still close enough to subway or walking cross town to see a...

I felt so much at home at the Benjamin Hotel. Omar Elnewishy the manager of the hotel was so hospitable and welcoming. He's so professional and so kind at the same time. He's one of the best hotel managers I've ever met. I always like to come back to stay at this hotel when I am in NYC, due to...

The Benjamin is a very nice, friendly boutique in the middle of mid-town. We were well taken care of through the whole weekend...pillow menus, upgrade to a suite, bottle of wine and chocolate as a birthday treat.

We selected this hotel using one of the hotel booking websites where you are not shown the name of the hotel until after you have booked. I was a bit skeptical but decided to give it at try and we ended up at the Benjamin. What a treat! It was luxurious and there is not one thing I can say...

We booked this hotel based on the trip advisor reviews and a friend's recommendation. I will never stay here again and am writing a very honest review in the hopes people read it and think twice about a stay. My best friend and I booked a terrace suite from June 7-10 at a US $500 plus tax rate. I have...

I thought I had booked 2 nights for a "decent price" in a good part of town, therefore felt this very high price was acceptable. The first morning I saw my bill had been slipped under the door - price was for 1 night (my bad). I've paid this amount plenty of times for excellent, high quality 5 Star hotels,...

The Benjamin is a great place to stay in NY. The suites and rooms are large compared to New York's standard rooms, the view is great especially if you have a balcony. The location is great, convenient to Broadway, Times Square, and Central Park. Staff is very nice, the restaurant is great with a jazz trio in the evening. A...

We needed a suite for an important afternoon of business meetings. The Benjamin absolutely hooked us up. The room was great, as was the team. They helped us to bring in all the materials we needed. Plus lunch from the National was excellent. We will be back when the circumstances present themselves again. Guaranteed early check in was what won...

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.
