Great Hotel and was also just sold to Pebblebrook Hotel Trust
Amazing Rooms! – My wife and I visited the Benjamin for the weekend and were very happy with our visit. Our Deluxe Queen Room (at $279) was very spacious (much bigger than rooms I've had at the W next door), had a great view, and even had a kitchenette with a fridge/sink and dishes in cabinets. The decor is very traditional, so if you are looking for a modern W type room, it might not be your spot, but if you want comfort and elegance, it is sure to please.
Service was also very friendly but did not get in your way. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling either for business or just visiting NY for the weekend.
Great Staff – Whenever I go to NYC, I try to book this hotel if it is not sold out. This is my favorite hotel in NYC. I've stayed in a suite with a kitchenette and sofa bed. The rooms are nice, great bathrooms with comfortable beds. Perfect location for tourist in town for shopping or a show. This hotel has THE nicest hotel staff in NYC and they make great recommendations for dinner. For what you get, well worth the price.
Great Hotel – I have stayed at the Benjamin several times. I live out on the Island, and stay in the city quite often. This is a great hotel. I like the one bedroom suite with kitchen. My 3 friends and I had a ball staying over night. We even had a balcony. Beds are great, service great. Not too highly priced. Space is somewhat small, but great for a girls party weekend.
Another Affinia favourite – I have tried and tried to find a dependable NYC hotel over the last six years. I've given up on miles, because the chains that are moderately affordable and offer them are pretty average in quality. So my new favourite NYC hotel is the Benjamin, and any other Affinia hotel comes in second. They get business travel -- printer and fax machine in room; big desk with real desk chair; good outlets and high speed that you don't have to climb behind the furniture to find.
The rooms have excellent beds and linens, big closets, quality bathroom amenities, and a fridge+microwave+popcorn! It's nice to come back after a day of running around for meetings.
The staff are friendly but not hover-y. The Benjamin has a nice second floor lounge that I've used for entertaining colleagues and guests. Also, the bellmen can always find a cab for me.
Favorite hotel in New York – Yes, we have not stayed in every hotel in New York, but of the ones this is by far our favorite. The service is first class. The rooms are a great size, esp. if you can get one of the deals on their website for a suite. You also get to choose your bed pillow from a menu (funny thing is...we ended up liking the ones we started with). My wife loves the new spa they have. Everytime we are staying NYC we try to stay at the Benjamin

NEVER FORGET – I had my sisters bachelorette party this weekend, & we decided to spend the night in Manhattan. Our stay here will never be forgotten. There were 15 of us, & we had an ENJOYABLE time. The beds & pillows are to die for. I will reccomend this hotel to everyone I know!
MarySD – The Benjamin is a wonderful hotel. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. It's location is just far enough away from the main areas to be quieter, but near enough to walk. I will most assurdly be back!!!
Memorable stay! – For the money and location, you cannot find a better or more luxurious hotel than the Benjamin.
