We stayed here one night and were very pleased with our stay. The room (king bed) was enormous for NY - really, like an alcove studio that I could live in pretty happily. We declined to pay the extra $15 for a high floor, and were given a third floor room facing 50th Street near the corner of Lexington. I loved it - very quiet! I do live in a city and so am used to street noise, but really, there was virtually none - it's a pretty quiet neighborhood. I actually enjoyed looking out at the street, and was delighted to have the view and light - so nice compared to many dark hotel rooms that look directly out at a brick wall or air shaft. The white marble bathroom was very pretty, and the kitchenette (with a full size refrigerator) was attractive, too. I didn't have a huge need for a kitchenette on our one night stay, but it was nice to fix our coffee and pastry there in the morning and it could be very convenient for a longer stay or traveling with kids. The bed was slightly soft for my taste, but I had a great night's sleep all the same. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient - very convenient to the subways we needed to take and on a direct subway line from Penn Station. We didn't go to the attached restaurant, but there were lots of coffee/bakery/breakfast options nearby. Everyone working there was very pleasant. We really enjoyed this classic old NY hotel.

I've stayed in a few hotels in NYC and this is my favorite one to date. Spacious rooms with a kitchenette, comfortable bed, GREAT location, and the staff were all very attentive. I will definitely book this hotel again

Stayed 2 nights. Hotel is clean, rooms beautiful and staff attentive and friendly. Would highly recommend this hotel. Conveniently located near 5th avenue shopping, short walk to central park. Many great restaurants in the vicinity.

Very comfortable and well managed, conveniently located, and our favorite in New York City because of its reasonable rates. It also has a pleasant restaurant. On a recent visit our room was a bit small and difficult to cool for sleeping at night.

We stayed at the Benjamin Thursday-Saturday (2 adults, 2 children) and booked a queen suite. We opted for the "early check in" addition ($50.00) and drove from our home to the city in the morning, figuring we would check in early (Noon, as advertised on their site) and relax before seeing a show. Our children are 12 and 5, and after a long drive to the city, needed to recharge before heading out for the night. We arrived about 12:45 in the afternoon and went to the desk to check in. Unfortunately, we were told that there were no rooms available because the site was sold out the night before. For the life of me, when we booked the hotel on Tuesday, there was no disclaimer saying that we would only be able to check in early if there were rooms available. You could say that goes without saying, but we paid the extra money and weren't notified that there was a chance we could not check in early. I voiced my concern to the front desk staff and I will say that 15 minutes later, we were told our room was ready for us. The room was very spacious; a large sitting area with a couch that opened (sleeps 2), and wet bar area, desk, and very large TV. We were given an accessible room (probably because that was the first to come available) and the bathroom was enormous. The queen bedroom was also quite large, with a second large tv. The location of the hotel was pretty good; about 3 blocks from Rockefeller and about 9 blocks away from Broadway. We don't mind walking, so the location a few blocks from where we were going to spend our time wasn't a big deal for us. The staff at the Benjamin was what made this hotel stand out for us. Welcoming, kind, engaging, we were always greeted with a smile and a "Good morning" "Good evening" every time we came and went. The bell staff were incredibly helpful and room service was quick and pleasant. If we were going to travel in to the city for a show, we would definitely stay there again. We also booked the American Girl package, ($50 per child) which gave each of our girls an AG fold out bed, blanket and pillow, as well as cookies and milk at turn down service. Is it worth $50? Probably, since you would most likely pay at least $35 or $40 for the flip out bed and bedding set, and the girls got a kick out of their dolls having a place to sleep at night. The cookies were small, but at 10:30 when we got back from the show, they didn't need big cookies to eat! Long story short, if you're considering staying in the midtown area and want a smaller boutique style hotel to stay in, stay at the Benjamin. You won't be disappointed!
