                          It was at a great location and nice room.

                          My husband's past experience with the Benjamin was that it was a great small midtown hotel. He remembered that it had a beautiful lobby, a great and attentive staff and everything was positive in every way. We selected it for my first return to NYC in 13 years - this kind of trip is a great rarity for us. The Benjamin was a huge disappointment. The fact that the hotel was under major construciton was never disclosed - the entire lobby was ripped out - ugly, not at all nice. The concierge and doorman were not always available when needed. The staff failed to give me a wakeup as requested on my departure day making me almost late for my flight. I was very disappointed and will not return. The Benjamin is most definitely off our list of NY hotels. Receiving no warning about the disruptive lobby construction, under the circumstances, made us feel that we were misled about the quality that we could expect. It was a huge disappointment.

                          The hotel is superbly located near the 5th ave shops, the subway station and good restaurants. Highly recomended if you like to relax in comfort and luxury for a reasonable rate. The room was huge and thr bathroom also. Great for my older teens who could walk around on their own to Apple or 5th. The staff, concierge are polite and very helpful. Will definitely stay there again !

                          In the room the furniture needs a little updating and sprucing up. And a little more attention to gym hygiene and maintainence. The spa is closed for a while and you should let people knowin advance. Otherwise...superb!

                          The location is good. 10-15 min. walk to Times Square.

                          The door to the room were only a visual protection. We could easily hear the neighbours chattering and watching TV.

                          Great idea to have microwaves/refrigerator/silverware in the rooms! I have stayed in many nyc hotels and have not seen this before. Great location, friendly staff!

                          Elevators were kind of slow and often had to wait for them frequently

                          Location. Clean room.

                          This hotel has quite some way to go before becoming a 5-star institution. It's clean but approach to service may use quite some improvement. You won't find a pair of sleepers or a shoeshine cloth when you need them - you have to call the concierge for this. You won't find a list of dialing instructions handy and have to call the concierge again to figure our how to make a call. The list of call rates is right there on the desk though ($15.99 the first minute and about $7.99 each additional for international calls). The concierge will accept a package delivery for you and promise to deliver it to your room but won't until you call her and inquire about your package. Whichever direct dial button on the telephone you use (restaurant, concierge, etc.) it will always take you to the Reception and you'll need to explain which service you tried to reach. The telephones are also pretty old and unpleasant. Pay-TV or music tv won't work when you need it... Thanks, but I'm not longing to return.

                          Booked a 1 bedroom suite for a family of 4 and had an extra bed put in living room which worked well

                          I think the price of the hotel was great, especially because of it's location! It also was very beautiful with alot of personality!

                          At "The Benjamin" I was able to run all my errands, shop and eat with no problem. I slept very comfortably, and the hotel staff were very warm and helpful. It will always be my choice in nyc.
