Rough Guide
"Rooms are... eclectic, bold and luxurious. It’s also in a lovely location."
Michelin Guide
"It's tough to improve on a legend, but the Gramercy Park Hotel has done it."
Frommer's
"More than half of the rooms are suites at this 1925-built legend, some with views overlooking Gramercy Park." Full review

If you choose to leave your room, the hotel's magnificent Rose Bar is where you should venture first, followed by the Danny Meyer-run restaurant, Maialino.
Concierge
"This 1925 landmark, whose bohemian sumptuousness had frayed in recent years, has been reanimated by hotelier Ian Schrager, who... buffed the old-school grandeur to a sheen."
Fodor's
"The lobby has a chic, hushed quality but upstairs, rooms go for fabulousness over comfort, with draped velvet, studded leather, and very red drapes." Full review

Try for a view overlooking Gramercy Park if you can swing it; staffers will also let you in the gated private park on request.

Michelin Guide
"Midtown Manhattan hotels are notorious for their cramped quarters, but The Benjamin bucks the trend with a spectrum of spacious rooms and suites equipped with full galley kitchens."
Frommer's
"All rooms are airy, but the deluxe studios and one-bedroom suites are extra large... If you are a light sleeper, book a room off Lexington Avenue, which can get busy most weeknights and mornings." Full review
Fodor's
"NYC is often called the City that Never Sleeps, but if a good night's rest is essential for your visit, the Benjamin may be your choice accommodation." Full review
i
With a menu of 12 pillows to choose from (including buckwheat, water, and Swedish memory varieties), white-noise machines, and 400-thread-count sheets, they've got it covered.
Insight Guides
"The Benjamin offers business and leisure travelers four-star amenities and some of the most comfortable beds in New York, at relatively reasonable prices."
Lonely Planet
"If you like your morning oatmeal at just-so temperature, but need some Midtown luxury, the 26-floor Benjamin has kitchenettes in all of its 209 rooms." Full review
