Great staff. Nicely designed rooms. And the location is perfect for a Manhattan trip.

A fine hotel, with extremely attentive staff, in a convenient location

Size of the room. Quiet for NYC and great location

The staff was so accommodating and nice- especially Maria in housekeeping. My room was extremely quiet and the beds are super comfortable. The kitchenette is so handy to have. I am planning to come back here quite soon; I think this became my go-to hotel in nyc!

Always a great stay. We have stayed here several times.

Always a great stay, clean, friendly, and good location

I love the hotel. Great staff and location. But of all the things to go cheap on...toilet paper? Please get the good stuff.

Hotel staff not very friendly or helpful. Every time I called them they would just hang up not saying good bye. Rude! Be aware that you will be charged more fees and taxes above what you pay here on Obitz when you check out. No vending machines, so you have to pay jacked up prices for the snacks/drinks in room( $9 for a bottle of water), or pay more fees with room service (a glass of juice and salad for one cost me $60).

The Benjamin could not be any nicer. The location is fabulous. I would definitely stay there again. We stayed in a king size suite with two teenage boys and did not feel cramped. The staff was very helpful and professional.

Great restaurant attached. Rooms larger than standard NYC hotel rooms. Very clean, great service, and convenient location close to subway and shopping.

Hotel is located in very accessible part of midtown NYC. Very helpful staff.

An elegant room, staff were friendly and endlessly helpful... really great to have a stylish micro kitchen.

The Benjamin is ideally located in Midtown Manhattan. Mohammed the doorman was totally charming and greeted us with such enthusiasm that it made us all smile. For a slight up charge we were able to upgrade our suite to an even bigger suite with a terrace- it made a world of difference. Although we didn't eat any meals in our suite, the kitchenette was very convenient for drinks and leftovers eaten as a snack. We definitely would stay here again.

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.

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!

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.

Spacious room in a great location. The hotel was well maintained and the staff was great.
