    Superb

    Location was great. Comfortable and friendly.Liked the added touch of refreshments and comp newspapers in the lobby daily. Overall great experience and would recommend the hotel to famiily and friends.

    The phone bill was unexpected as we used a pre-paid international call card. We used this phone card in other hotels in the US and there was no charge. However the hotel did agree to a 50% discount on the phone bill.

    Very good

    Quiet hotel, good breakfast, comfortable bed, sufficient daylight/good windows with balcony, excellent location

    Regret that there was no business centre available during rebuilding. Insufficient elevator capacity. Reception staff at check-in could have been a little more smiling perhaps... House service and concierge very helpful

    Superb

    it was located in just the right area for the things we wanted to do.

    the weakest parts of the hotel were the slowness of the elevators and the fixtures in the bathroom. On the latter point, the shower head was loose from the wall, made the shower experience feel like it was in a Super 6 motel, and I like using the makeup mirror for shaving but it was broken and bent downwards; it would have been useful to someone in a wheelchair perhaps.

    Very good

    Good location. At first instance they gave me a small and poor room, and for the only reason that it didn't have safe deposit box, they changed me to a nice and big room.

    Two guest elevators are insufficient.The first room they gave mo did not worth the money I was paying.

    We had a fantastic time at the Benjamin - great position very central. Booked.net offered by far the best rate at this hotel which made our trip excellent value for money. 2nd visit to this hotel

    Fabulous

    The suite was very spacious and comfortable. Despite being next to the lift it was also very quiet - except for the road noise which never stopped!

    The bar and lounge was closed due to decoration which we did not know beforehand. They had converted a suite on the top floor but it wasn't reallly suitable.

    The staff were lovely and very helpful, the pillow selections were amazing and the size of room was very good.

    The cost of room service is very expensive, even as a treat.

    The size of the room was excellent by nyc standards. We booked a suite, and ended up in rm 1803 which has a fabulous balcony.

    The bathroom was small given the price and size of the room. There was not enough space to hang towels or store our toiletries. It would be nice to have free WiFi (but instead it was an additional $14 or so a night).

    Fabulous

    Good situation. Good for the price. Main bed was big and comfortable. Staff generally delightful and very helpful. Good room service and cleaned each day. Wi-fi free in lobby. Nice bar. Had microwave and kettle so option to do basic self catering. Had good toiletries and although towels were small there were plenty if them.

    No complementary wi-fi in room. There was black mould in the grouting/sealant round the bath and under the shower fittings. This is so easily remedied by regular maintenance. The room was advertised for up to 4 people however my adult son and daughter had a double sofa bed with thin uncomfortable mattress that we had to ask to be made up despite advising hotel 2 adults were with us. The coffee/tea were only provided for 2 people. There were only 2 lifts for the 26 floors and one day only one worked. A bit of attention to detail would work wonders!
