About

City | History & culture | Spa

Location

Sitting at the crossroads of culture and commerce – or more literally the junction of Lexington and 50th – much of New York’s top attractions are within easy reach of this central Manhattan location. The restaurants and shops of Fifth Avenue, the Grand Central Terminal, MoMA, Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral are all within the immediate vicinity. For a breather, head to Central Park – the city’s green lung – just north of the hotel.

Accommodation

Residential rooms come with almost 300 square feet of living space and feature kitchenettes making for comfortable longer stays. You’ll also find designer bathrooms complete with toiletries by Elemis where white marble tiles are tastefully lit. Upgrade to a larger Deluxe Room or a Suite, complete with a balcony that looks out over midtown NYC while terrace suites enjoy skyline vistas.

Dining

The brainchild of Food Network’s Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarain, The National has been hailed as one of The New York Times’ 50 favourite restaurants. His classically trained French style has been repurposed into American favourites with dishes such as pork chops served with baked apple and the now famous ‘Ugly Burger’. This coveted menu is available in-room along with a ‘snack-box’ designed by the head chef himself, featuring offerings from small-batch producers in New York and Brooklyn that use fresh, organic ingredients.

Facilities

At The Benjamin, staff offer a personalised service – even able to recommend from a ‘pillow menu’ or lullaby library to ensure you get the best night’s sleep possible. More traditionally, there’s a laundry, valet, taxi and shoe shine service along with a private guest lounge. The hotel also features a pampering spa and salon with dedicated stylists on hand along with a selection of deep tissue, stone, and Swedish massages, while the 24-hour fitness centres ensures that you don’t miss out on your workout.
