The area is convenient if you are interested in being close to Central Park and other mid-town attractions. The hotel is very clean, but I wouldn’t say it’s a 4-star hotel, perhaps closer to 3 stars. It’s a bit dated and needs renovation. There was construction done on the street and ended up being very loud all night, which made it difficult to sleep.

We were made to feel welcome from the moment we entered the doors of this hotel. The staff was so courteous, accommodating and delightful. The hotel itself is looking a bit old, but it's clean, comfortable, quiet, and conveniently located. We stayed in the king suite which was spacious, and we were so happy the room included a kitchenette, which we used for every breakfast. We are very happy with our choice to stay at The Benjamin!

It was ok, but a bit too basic. The safe in my room did not work, the coffee machine was broken. The bathroom upon our arrival smelled funny… Althought got to say bed was very comfortable. Would stay again making sure somethings do work this time.
