Travel Blogs from New York City
Hi everyone, So lookie here, even a short trip to NYC deserves a travelogue. We arrive in NYC with huge Canadian smiles on our face at our hotel The Benjamin, in glorious NY yesterday. Price line has come through once again, our five star digs were awesome. Although we were worried about the Queen size bed for both mom and I we were pleasantly …
We caught our 11.15am flight to New York City this morning. We allowed extra time for Monday morning traffic and security clearance, however both were not an issue so we had 2 hours to kill at the airport. The kids made friends with some American children and enjoyed playing with their mobile drawing board. The 3 ½ flight went well and we were all …
We were all exhausted this morning after a very late night, too much alcohol and Sienna having a disturbed night. The Hotel had provided us with breakfast vouchers to compensate for the room wait from the previous night. Just as well given we had no supplies in the apartment. The Hotel restaurant called the National was really nice and breakfast …
We all had breakfast in our room this morning and then headed down Madison Avenue to check out some shops. We eventually ended up at Bloomingdales where Lee-Ann bought a New York black winter coat (so now she doesn't have to wear 7 layers to keep warm).
We took Ann and Tony to Serendipity for lunch. It was a lot more busier than when we …
We were a bit slow this morning, not getting up until around 8.30am. Sienna has a cold, so we all had a rough night.
We did some Christmas shopping in the morning, the Christmas atmosphere in New York is just fantastic. We got back to the Hotel around lunchtime so Sienna could have a nap. Lee-Ann ventured out to do some more Christmas …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Benjamin New York City
The stay was fantastic. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the staff was incredible. It's not cheap, but worth every penny.
The Benjamin is the best!
The Benjamin has done it right! Very nice rooms, great amenities, extremely comfortable beds and a pillow menu to top it off. If you want a nice place to stay, the Benjamin is it. Printer and fax machine in each room, with hi-speed internet. I'll never stay at another hotel in Manhattan. Wish I would have found it months ago before wasting four weeks at the grand hyatt.
I stayed at the Benjamin over the 4th of July and it was fabulous.
Cannot say enough about the staff - they were wonderful. The rooms were nice, clean, large and centrally located (midtown). The staff was superb! Will stay again, no question!
Best kept secret in New York.
This hotel has everything from amazingly friendly staff who just couldn't do enough for us, to the most comfortable beds and pillows I've ever slept in. Nothing was too much trouble, from going out and buying us coffee filters for our in room coffee machine, to lending us a laptop for 20 minutes (FREE) so we could look up a few websites on things to do in New York. The rooms were extremely spacious and spotlessly clean and coming home from a "hard days shopping" to find our room where the beds turned down, the lighting dimmed and soft music playing, was fabulous. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in New York again.
Not so impressed
I enjoy taking a vacation from my apartment and trying different new york hotels. This hotel was just ok. It was nice and the rooms were nice, but I had some problems with staff. There are other hotels I prefer.
Stayed here last weekend...everything was perfect! If you're looking for a quiet, very clean hotel at a great price...this is it. The one bedroom suite was wonderful.
Request upper floor room
Very comfortable friendly hotel. The decor was lovely and the bed was great. They are very family friendly and provided us with a free crib and high chair. My only comment is that we had a corner king studio room on the 8th floor and we got quite a bit of street noise.
Definitely request upper floor room.
The best bed ever
I was a little skeptical about the great reviews I was reading, but no more. This business hotel may be the most romantic place to stay in New York. There are lots of other hotels that measure romance in numbers of pleats, patterns and ruffles. But in the tastefully restrained Benjamin you will find what is truly the most romantic thing a hotel can offer -- the most comfortable bed on the planet. The specially made mattress, the awesome linens, and the selection of 10 pillows (including a body pillow for pregnant women, but I recommend the jelly-neck pillow -- the insert is cool against your neck, or you can take it out and heat in the room's microwave). And it inspires not only romance, but one of the best sleeps you have ever had in a hotel, which will make the rest of your trip more energetic and fun. The rooms are big for NYC. The bathrooms are also great, with all marble tiling, and little aromatheraphy soaps and lotions and a makeup mirror. Try to get one of the 16th floor rooms facing the street with the little balconies. I'm not sure, but I swear our view was of the building Edward Steichen and Georgia O'keefe lived in.Because this is supposed to be a business hotel, you get neat things like web and email access on your television ($9.95/24 hours).They just do everything right here. For instance, the gym is open 24 hours. The spa has regular, pregnancy and foot massages. Finally, you have to mention the staff. They are attentive, professional and incredibly nice. We got a call every day of our stay just to make sure everything was going well, then they sent us a thank you note when we got home. I have obviously already said too much, but I really can't say enough. We have stayed just about everywhere in NYC, but from now on will never stay anywhere else.
Everything was Fabulous
This has to be one of the best hotels. Amenities were fabulous from the Bose CD/Radio's to the finest linens on the beds it was great. Staff was exceptional. Could not do enough for you. Would definately go back. Loved it.
It's all about the Benjamin... [sorry, cheesy, couldn't resist]
This was a very nice hotel in midtown-- quite convenient to Broadway. The rooms have Bose clock radios and really nice amenities (including a choice of wacky kinds of pillows, e.g., "Swedish Gel"-- sadly, that one was not available when I tried to investigate). I'd stay there again and recommend it!
