Rough Guide
"The interior is a showcase for contemporary design; standard “salons” (rooms) have been beautifully furnished with ornate carpets, hand-crafted wardrobes and funky, modern desks."

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
