Was pleasantly surprised to have my accommodations bumped-up to a suite with a balcony on the 18th floor.

        Hotel Benjamin, New York”

        Great location, very friendly and helpful staff, very clean, large room size
        None

        On arrival we were surprised by the size of the room, as we had been told New York hotel rooms are very small. This was not the case at the Benjamin. The room was large, very nicely decorated, clean and in excellent condition. The staff were at all times polite, friendly and very helpful. The location is superb, easy walking to 5th Avenue, the Rockerfeller centre, Times Sq, Grand Central, Chrysler Building, and the subway is just over the road. Plenty of good restaurants within 5 minutes walk. We will be returning to New York next year, and will not be looking at other hotels

        Wonderful Hotel Great Staff”

        Attentive staff, extremely comfortable bed, updated and nice size room for NYC

        We had a wonderful stay at The Benjamin. From start to finish everything was impeccable. It was very busy in the area with the U.N. in session and President Obama attending but The Benjamin and their staff made any inconveniences hardly noticeable. The staff were all very cordial and helpful from our greeting at the door, to our bellman, the front desk and also the concierge. We have stayed here before and love the new updated design of the rooms. It makes the rooms feel larger and brighter. We also love the comfort of the bed and duvet. And thank you to The Benjamin for the extra touch waiting for us in our room upon arrival...it made my wife's birthday and our anniversary very special. We will be back soon.

        Our stay here was really lovely, my husband and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and not only were we very kindly upgraded to a one bedroom suite, we also had a welcome gift, and on our anniversary we had some chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of wine sent to our room. Thank you to Tom (claws) on concierge for making our trip even more wonderful, your thoughtfulness made us feel like guests rather than people just staying in a room, the whole hotel is so very welcoming. The room was super great, very, very spacious as we now had a separate living room however the type of hotel this is all the rooms have everything you need, Elmsis toiletries, a nice size bathroom with space to put everything and good quality towels, flannels. Bed very comfortable, a pillow menu if you need one, very clean, warm but not to warm as you can adjust the temperature. Never queued for the lift, every member of staff was so helpful. Location is perfect for walking, park and metro.

        Little disappointing ”

        The hotel is okay, I expected more from the photos. The lobby was small and we felt a bit deflated when we arrived. We went for my husbands 50th. We had booked a suite (which was okay not amazing) but unfortunately unlike other people reviewing we didn’t get an upgrade. I can’t complain about the service, apart from one day our room wasn’t cleaned and we had to ask remind reception. Overall it was okay. I wouldn’t go back. It wasn’t awful but I think there are better hotels in New York for that money. Shame !

        Friendly staff, large variety of pillows available to choose for optimum sleep, great beds, great location
        Rooms are too warm

        The hotel is in walking distance from Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue. Very upscale environment. Service is great not too bad for Manhattan. However, breakfast costs extra and $14 for internet per day per computer is a ripoff. Then again, the nearest McDonalds (at 3rd street) is a 2 minute walk away, and you get internet there for free, no purchase required. This is true for all McDonalds in the US, by the way. All in all, I enjoyed staying there. The only major downside was that the rooms are too warm due to central heating that can't be turned off, so you end up running the noisy air conditioning or sleep with the windows open, which is noisy too. Perhaps they'll fix that - I sure complained about it.

        location

        Based on what we read, we thought it was an all suite hotel, this was not the case for our room. Although the room was nice, the bedding could have been more comfortable. The bathroom was way too small and needed updating. The shower head was rusty and would not stay in one place. The kithenette was a nice addition but seemed very new compared to the rest of the room. Employees were great and the food at the National was very good. Probably wouldn't stay again if we got that room.

        There was something very comfortable and cozy about this hotel! Also, The National was a delightful place to finish off the night. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative was that they advertise a pillow menu based on work with a sleep specialist, but these were highly disappointing and in fact the opposite of something special! The regular pillow was just fine, and we slept comfortably. I would enjoy staying at this hotel again.

        Comfortable Hotel”

        Free Gym and Spa

        Location is not bad. But receptionist service is excellent. They are helpful. The toilet is very large and with refrigerator, free coffee and tea bag. I guess there is a complimentary bottle of water, however, it is not. The bed is very comfortable. There is a 24 hrs. gym and spa which is complimentary.
