About my stay , please get back to me
Hello, I stayed in my room the whole stay because my delayed flight and I asked service from the hotel on breakfast like it said on the reservation and told me that they don’t have any till next week , plus I picked a room that was a bit bigger and paid for the extra room amount and they said that is the only room available. I also want to state that the front desk was rude and told me that there was smoking in the room when I explained to the gentleman that the window in the bathroom was fully opened when I arrived and also dangerous to other people that stay in the room and he kept saying to me that I am wrong and acting very unprofessional. I just want to say that I could’ve disputed the charges and even speak to the manager but I am a person that would just think twice before I go back to that hotel. If this message gets back to me about my stay and maybe can even accommodate me in anyway, that will be nice and the right thing to do . Thank you Email is : arielmosaffi@gmail.com

Great location. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Especially like the mini kitchens! Staff are friendly and helpful. The National ( closed due to COVID-19) is a great restaurant.

Perfect stay!
The Benjamin felt like a home away from home stay. I have been to NY on numerous occasions and always tried a new place, but I don’t think I need to do that anymore.

New Year’s Eve getaway
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Benjamin for a New Year’s Eve getaway. Check-in was easy and quick. We were greeted warmly. We were provided with a complimentary upgrade to a suite which we were thankful for. The room was beautiful, cozy, clean and comfortable. We were in walking distance to St. Patrick’s cathedral, Saks 5th ave, Rockefeller center and lots of dining and shopping. Overall it was a great stay.
