Recently renovated Midtown sophisticate with modern rooms, topnotch service and an award-winning restaurant
Built by architect Emery Roth in 1927 and purchased in 1999 by hotelier Benjamin “Bud” Denihan (after whom the hotel is named), the Benjamin is handsome, modern and comfortable. Guest rooms are residentially styled—that means a kitchenette with a mini-fridge and microwave—and include mod cons like iPod docs, flatscreen TVs, and WiFi access. Blackout shades and plush beds make it easy to unwind, but if you’re having trouble getting some shuteye, you can consult the hotel’s sleep team, order a custom pillow from the pillow menu or try the for-a-fee “Power Nap” service, which includes an eye mask, aromatherapy temple treatment, and a wake-up call. Pets get a pampered experience too thanks to the hotel’s goodDOG program, which includes a box of treats and toys and a top-of-the-line dog bed. Celeb chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s The National is right off the lobby, with standout New American fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner (we can vouch for the burger, topped with pickled jalapeno and the restaurant’s special sauce) that’s also available via room service. Or, drop by the bar for signature cocktails like the “Red Eye” with rum, Kahlua, campari, port and black walnut bitters. The hotel also includes a small gym with top of the line equipment and Federico Salon & Spa, with beauty services on call around-the-clock for styling emergencies.
