            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 !

            Great hotel, great staff, made holiday better for staying here”
            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.

            Marijuana smell ruined our stay”
            This is a lovely hotel but sadly our stay was ruined by the intense smell of marijuana that permeated our room through 3 days of our stay. It was overwhelming and in fact when we unpacked our clothes to wash them when we got home they stank of it. The hotel front desk did nothing to deal with it despite our asking them to do so, after all any type of smoking is illegal inside the hotel but they couldn’t have cared less, so we definitely won’t be returning or recommending the hotel. Shame

            It’s hard to find a quiet hotel room in Midtown but 17th fl of Benjamin was perfect. Great location to walk to UN, Rockefeller Xmas tree, and Bryant Park Xmas market. Bed was super comfortable. We’ll be back.

            The location is ideal. It is outside the 6 train, which makes it easy to move from north to south. Also, it is closed to the main shopping streets and there is a 24/7 pharmacy just next to the hotel. The location is very good, the restaurant in the hotel is also good.

            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.

            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.
