About The Benjamin

Located in the cultural epicenter of Midtown Manhattan, The Benjamin is the ideal venue for flawless, intimate weddings. Its main goal is to provide an experience beyond just atmosphere, serving guests to the utmost degree. An acclaimed design firm refreshed the hotel’s historic ambiance for contemporary flair, and a celebrity chef caters all events. Those tying the knot can take solace in The Benjamin’s longtime focus on personal service—its philosophy maintains that success is in the details.

The Benjamin’s event space is designed by the award-winning Rockwell Group. A 2,200 square foot venue, it accommodates up to 150 guests in a residential design. Architectural details such as its stunning bronze spiral staircase are featured throughout, adding an element of surprise. Its grand arched windows illuminate with natural light and elevated views of Lexington Avenue’s energetic bustle.

All weddings held at The Benjamin are custom catered by Food Network’s famous Iron Chef, restaurateur Geoffrey Zakarian, and his signature restaurant The National. It’s considered a modernized French bistro, noted as one of The New York Times’ 50 favorite New York restaurants.

Also impressive is the 1,100 square-foot VIP Suite on the 22nd floor, which can accommodate up to 65 guests. Two terraces for al fresco dining or late-night cocktails & cigars offer striking views of Midtown skyscrapers glowing at evenings. The suite includes a living room, dining room, two bedrooms and full kitchen.

    We held our morning after brunch at The Benjamin Hotel and were so pleased with the services. We had the private corner room upstairs with a buffet style brunch. The food was great and the staff was very helpful. Leading up to the brunch all the contacts at The Benjamin was so helpful and kind.

    This experience was made 10 times better by Julie's professionalism and because she was so on the ball, we have never come across someone in this industry who is so organised, friendly and who clearly knows her job inside out- a pleasure to deal with!The staff on the evening were amazing too. Would definitely recommend this establishment.

    Everything was perfect. The food was delicious and the people we dealt couldn't have been nicer or more efficient.
    The only problem was the passed hor d'oervres were skimpy and came out slowly. But they were very tasty.
    Everything else was first rate. We were extremely happy and would have another party there in a heartbeat!
