Staff was amazing

Great location

Central location with easy subway access. Limited space to pull car into at arrival though. Parking fee does NOT include In/Out privileges so there is a fee EVERY time you access the car. 30 minute wait for car (common in NYC?). Free WIFI is not in rooms. The hotel details say as much but the Orbitz filters that I used to find the hotel were free wifi and parking available! Restaurant/lounge is closed for renovations. They give you a small credit for use in the lobby snack cabinet but it only gets you a 1 liter bottle of water (no rolling over extra). Lobby is small so it is your room or nothing. No rooftop access for elevated view of skyline despite two different photos. The weirdest one is the lack of a top sheet on the beds. There is only a comforter. It was soft but too small (to tuck) to keep my feet from getting cold. Not going to recommend this one.

Friendly staff. Loved the pillow concierge. Adorable staff.

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.
