About The Benjamin Hotel
Located on bustling Lexington Avenue in the Midtown East neighborhood of central Manhattan, only steps from Grand Central Terminal, the Benjamin prides itself on providing a luxurious night's sleep and well-appointed meeting spaces to frequent business travelers.
Midtown East is about business and locals. Next to the shopping and tourist centers of Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, it's a fast-paced, relatively affluent neighborhood in which office buildings and apartments abound. Local restaurants like Smith & Wollensky thrive during lunch and happy hour, and residents move uptown and down on the 6 train. It's easy to find a quick bite to eat, a bar, a shoeshine or a drugstore, and shopping is encouraged: the world-famous Bloomingdale's department store is on Third Avenue and 59th St. Nearby rail hub and Beaux-Arts masterpiece, Grand Central Terminal, also offers dining from hot dogs to gourmet cuisine.
On the corner of 50th and Lexington, the Benjamin is a 209-room hotel that prides itself on offering busy travelers what they need most: a comfortable (even luxurious) night's sleep. Its "sleep program" offers a sleep concierge, who will show you the hotel's pillow menu, and arrange for anything you might need to get to sleep, from bedtime snacks to a sleep inducing massage. The hotel will even offer a free night's stay if you don't get a good night's sleep. The kids' version of the sleep program includes bedtime story books, toddler pillows, and a stuffed "Winks the Owl" doll.
The well-appointed rooms are refuges from the neighborhood hubbub, and both rooms and suites include a galley kitchen with refrigerator and microwave. The hotel extends the feeling of calm with an in-house spa, quiet meeting rooms, and amenities for children and pets. The National Bar & Dining Rooms, located next to the lobby, is a local dining favorite. Run by the Food Network's Geoffrey Zakarian, it features New American cuisine and live music on Sunday evenings.
