The Benjamin

An official NYC Landmark that's classically now, classically New York.

True to its origins as a residential-style hotel, The Benjamin delivers on welcoming, relaxed sophistication. The Neo-Romanesque edifice, with its private-club appeal, is an official New York City Landmark. But when you step inside the lobby, you’ll feel the warm, residential appeal. The interiors have been fully redesigned by designer Lauren Rottet in partnership with a world-renowned sleep expert. Blending art and science, the result is a serene stay where sleep comes easy.
