The Benjamin is now our 'go to' hotel in NYC. It is conveniently located on 50th near Lexington - very central so it's easy to get wherever you want to go - can walk to great shopping, restaurants...and museums if you love to walk! The rooms are comfortable, the staff is friendly and professional. We were able to request and receive early check-in and late check-out on our most recent trip, which was great. The National, off the lobby, is a great restaurant and bar - good for a quick cocktail and small bite, or for a lovely brunch, lunch or dinner.

Unfortunately we did not make the trip. However, that did not stop you from charging me an additional $300.00 in room tax for a cancelled pre-paid visit. Likely to stay elsewhere in future. I called with ample time for you to re-book the space. Extremely disappointed.

We will be back. I visit NYC frequently and never considered staying at the Benjamin. I found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Perfect location for our business. while the rooms are a little tired it was very comfortable.

This was my wife and my 1st time staying at the Benjamin. We wanted to try it as the other reviews looked good and we knew that it had a great location in Manhattan's midtown/upper east side and that they had a restaurant by award winning TV Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. I have traveled to and stayed in this area of Manhattan at several hotels in the past 10 years and am quite familiar with the neighborhood. The location is a good walk to Central Park, The Met, The MOMA, 5th Ave shopping, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Grand Central, Chrysler Bldg, Empire State Bldg, and Times Square. There are tons of great restaurants also within walking distance. When we arrived at the hotel from the airport we were initially surprised that there was not a valet or bellman at the curb to greet us, but a bellman came out to help us with the bags shortly later. My view of what a first class hotel is considered to be has a valet & bellman at the ready at all times. This may be a minor thing to some people, but a lack of attention to a detail like this can cost a hotel a AAA 4 diamond rating or a similar award. Check-in was another surprise as the front desk attendant was apologizing immediately for their computer system being down. They were able to check us in, and the front desk attendant did call the room shortly thereafter to discuss the payment method on file and answer my questions about the room rates. This hotel is one of those places that has a different rate for your room each night of the week. When I made my initial reservation with them over the telephone a month before my arrival date I was given a rate for my 6 night stay that was evidently an average for all 6 nights. At that time of making the reservation I was told they were going to charge my credit card for the 1st nights stay, but the amount they charged was greater than the nightly rate that I was quoted, so that is how I found out about the rate being different for each night. At this time of year, weekdays are more costly than weekends by almost $150-200 per night for the type of room we reserved. I still don't know why, but I am sure there is a reason. We always like to be comfortable in the room so I try and get a suite with a king sized bed. The room we had at the Benjamin was a large (450 Sq ') suite with a big living room, a kitchenette, a separate bedroom, and a smallish bathroom. The size was great, and the rate was good compared to what some other hotels charge for suites during this time of year.

This is a very comfortable hotel in a good location. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and quiet. The last time I stayed at the Benjamin, I was upgraded to a beautiful suite which was a nice experience. However, this time I was surprised to find that the hotel is now charging a mandatory $35 facilities fee for things I didn't use such as the business center. I try to avoid hotels with such fees which I somehow missed when making my reservation through a hotel booking site. This was the highest of such fees I've ever paid and disappointing about what was one of my favorite hotels in New York. I really wonder if it's worth it for hotels to disappoint customers like this and make their staff justify the fees.
