Meh...

It was okay.. I was in a bind to find a decent value in Manhattan, and this is the only thing I could find which looked a vaguely special but I still had to pay through the nose for it. 550 bucks for a clean hotel is not a great value on any level. I'll do more research and book earlier next time. At best, this is a $300 hotel.

Amazing stay at The Benjamin

We stayed at The Benjamin July 12th - July 16th, 2014 and loved every minute of it. We are very picky people from Los Angeles and my husband said I did a great job of picking the hotel. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The service at the hotel was great and we loved their restaurant The National. The location was amazing and very east to get to places from there. Already planning my next trip there next month. Would not stay anywhere else!

Nice stay

Conveniently located near subway station, room was clean and quite big, with balcony. There is also a kitchenette. Staff helped us store luggage before check-in and after check-out. Con: no free wifi in room, only in lounge.

First Time!

It was our first time to the Big Apple and The Benjamin did not disappoint! From the greeting at the front door to the pillow menu (that was a complete new experience) it was wonderful. We would definitely return again.

big rooms, kitchenete

I like this hotel. It's in a less trendy neighborhood but the rooms are pretty large (stayed in a King one-room suite). Must have been an off weekend because we got the room for $175/night. Great value since usually it's about $350. Only complaint - we put the fan on to get air circulating and it was SO LOUD we had to shut it off and opened a window. We were in an interior room so no street noise, but did get some food smells from the restaurant. Staff is pretty nice.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The National - food and drinks are good but I thought the service was subpar for NYC. Waited about 15 minutes at dinner just to get a drink order and the next morning, walked out at breakfast because of a rude server. About four doors away is a fast breakfast place. About 3 blocks away is a great Italian restaurant: Ristorante DeGrezia. Try those instead.

Great value !

I would stay in The Benjamin again for sure. The service is impeccable, the room is great, and the staff couldn't be more pleasant. I unfortunately had noisy neighbors, but the hotel staff immediately offered me to change to another room and solved the problem. Great stay !

The hotel was okay. The staff were not very friendly. The room was missing items. The cleanliness was okay. It wasn't great but it wasn't awful. Just ok.
