Benji saved the day
We loved the location of the hotel and although we had to make a last minute booking we were still given a room within 10 minutes of our arrival. Established in the 1900s but very well maintained Clean and chic with excellent decor

Where I stay in NYC
Travel to NYC often. Have stayed there for the past few years. Always happy to come back: Excellent rooms, nice place, great local, very pleasant people.
William, gb6 night trip
Very good 8.0
Second time staying at the Benjamin. Changed a lot since 2012, mostly for the better. Lobby is not as grand as before but The National bistro is a very nice addition. Just very pushy/aggressive doorman/men who would not let us get our (yellow) cabs of choice and were quite hostile when we rejected their insistence to do it for us using their private contacts. Otherwise wonderful stay over July 4th weekend

Good 6.0
Everything was good except the refund to my card - used for incidentals - has not yet been received. Will be following this up on my return to UK. Disappointing.

We had room 503 and it was very noisy due to the traffic and the air conditioning.

Good 6.0
Nice, but not the best
Wanted to give the hotel a better rate. The hotel itself is lovely. The rooms are huge, with nice furniture and great views. The location perfect too. But a couple of things let our stay down. Firstly, we were awoken at 7am by huge drilling right outside the hotel. It went on all morning. Despite the drilling being right on the hotels sidewalk, there was no warning no apology from the hotel. Nothing. Then depending on who you see, service at the desk and restaurant can vary from great to surly. Food is nice in the restaurant, but very pricey. As I said before, location is great. BUT beware, you are next to the old Waldorf Astoria which is being turned into flats. So get ready for construction noise from there too!
