The Benjamin - Christmas 2018
Fantastic trip to NYC for Christmas - The Benjamin is in a great location, close to many major landmarks & shopping on 5th Avenue. The hotel was great for our needs - the aircon was very loud though and the additional taxes were surprising. The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and overall a really enjoyable family stay.

Wonderful hotel!
I booked the Benjamin hotel as the reviews and location of the hotel were all great. It 100% lived up to my expectations. I will definitely return here again. Staff were all very helpful and friendly, the room was spacious, clean, really comfortable bed, quiet. I’ve stayed in a number of hotels in NYC before and this is top of my list. Would recommend to everyone.

Good hotel that could do better.
I think they could do a bit better, the shower for example wasn't good and the temperature in the room was horribly high (it seems it has to do with how thy keep the building warm during winter, but by middle of spring it was just too much, we had to sleep with the windows open when we had quite fresh temperatures outside, and even then the room was still too warm). A few details would have made our stay more comfortable (why only one sitting chair, why not a table of some sort to sit down to eat if the room actually has a kitchenette?). The bathrooms in the lower ground level were simply not good enough, we had to use the one in the gym instead. They should try a bit harder. Everybody was charming I have to say, so no problems on the human and service side of things.
