Delightful New York destination
Fabulous stay at The Benjamin! Everything was perfect!

Christmas at The Benjamin
Great size room. Very comfortable and hotel service was wonderful. Location is excellent.
Linda, us6 night trip
The Benjamin, New York
Not what I expected for a 4 star hotel - the rooms are a good size and the beds were really comfortable, but the hotel is a bit dated and service was very hit or miss. Unfriendly and grumpy doormen, bellhops and front desk clerks. The bellhops delivered a suitcase to our room that we had stored, knowing someone had broken off a luggage wheel and didn't tell us. Once I realized it, the manager was very kind and wanted to know what happened. They were kind in their response and did reimburse us for part of the price of the suitcase.

A great place!!!!
A great place! We tried to stay again but they were booked. We recommended it to our friends who are from The Caribbean Islands. We went back to the lounge for after dinner drinks. A great choice!

The Benjamin, New York
Perfect spot
Great staff, pillows were lacking comfort for me but they did have options for different pillows so it was on me for not asking for that service. Restaurant downstairs was great.
