The Benjamin

New York, USA

The hotel

Thanks to a multi-million dollar makeover The Benjamin Hotel in Midtown Manhattan is looking hotter than ever and if you want to dive into a world of boutique luxury then right here is where you rip off the covers and get involved. Although the designs and modern touches are bang-up-to-date the level of customer commitment goes way back with pretty much 24-hr everything ranging from the front desk to the fitness room to the in-room spa and beauty services. The gourmet snack boxes alone will have you hungry for more and if you want a real taste of classic New York City style then check out The National Bar & Dining Rooms that's got grand café chic down to a tea. As The Benjamin Hotel stretches to almost 30 storeys there's no chance of getting lost in the city and as major attractions, such as the MET, the Empire State Building and Madison Avenue, are all just a few blocks away this is an excellent base to experience the best of the Big Apple. Finally, guest rooms have every box ticked with kitchenettes and mini-fridges ensuring you can definitely have your cake and eat it.

We had an amazing stay at NYC. The staff is incredible and friendly, which helped to make our stay memorable. They were extremely helpful and pointed us in the right direction every day.

Enjoy an unusually spacious one bedroom suite #1807, with ample terrace, especially by Manhattan standards. Manager Ryan went the extra mile to ensure a gratifying stay at this well situated MidTown East locale. Very nice to have a bathtub these days, when many properties have gone the all shower route. Tasty burger at The National, on site. … Read more

A friend of mine suggested this hotel as they had a good experience. I did not, it was below average. Do yourself a favor, stay at Parklane near Central Park. It’s a much better location, a much better value, and a much better experience.
