Lovely, comfortable hotel in a great location!

Posted Sep 4, 2015
Pros: The location of The Benjamin is ideal for us as we love to jump on the #6 train and either head uptown to the Met or downtown to the Whitney.
Location: Walkable to Central Park, Rockefeller Center, the Theater District, Madison Ave shopping, etc. And the #6 train is right around the corner!
Just spent 3 nights in this wonderful little hotel in midtown manhattan. This was our second stay at The Benjamin and we were again very pleased. As Expedia Gold members, we were given a lovely room upgrade too. The location is ideal for us with the #6 train right around the corner. We can easily go uptown to the Met or downtown to Soho, the Village, and our favorite bookstore. It's walking distance to Central Park, Rockefeller Center, shopping galore, restaurants, theater, etc. It also has a lovely restaurant on the ground floor, The National, for breakfast, lunch, dinner and live music on the weekend nights.

Great midtown hotel

Posted Aug 29, 2015
Pros: Room was spotlessly clean and spacious and quiet. Location was good and the in house restaurant was wonderful.
Cons: Don't charge for WiFi. Most places provide it free of charge.
Location: Walking distance to Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue shopping and lots of great restaurants.
First time staying at the Benjamin and it was a pleasant surprise. The room was a deluxe studio suite and was spacious and clean and surprisingly quiet compared to most places I've stayed in the city. The staff was pleasant and accommodating and the location on 50th and Lexington was within walking distance of most of the places we were planning to go. Having The National restaurant right downstairs is also a bonus, the food is great and they provide the room service for the hotel. Summer rates made the studio suite affordable but I'd definitely stay at the Benjamin again, even if it had to be in a regular room.

Beautiful Hotel, and close to everything!

Posted Jul 8, 2015
Pros: Staff, cleanliness, location.
Cons: Hot water was not available at all times.
Location: Close to Subway, Rockefeller Center and even Times Square was not that far away.
The staff were extremely attentive, the Hotel was clean and close to everything. The bed was SOOO comfortable! ALL elevators were in working condition, so no issues with being staying on the upper floors (recommended). A 5 out 5 for sure!

Nice hotel

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: I liked the fact that it was an older hotel that had been maintained and upgraded over the years. The elevators had recently been upgraded.
Cons: I'd like a top sheet on my bed not just a duvet.
Location: Convenient to Central park and Broadway. Subway stop near by. Really a sweet spot.
The clerk that checked us in moved us up to the 23rd floor so we could have a view which was excellent. The rest of the staff were equally helpful.
