Luxury boutique-style hotel with accommodations and a distinctly residential feel situated in a midtown locale. Considered to be one of the most recognized works by famed architect Emery Roth, the hotel’s edifice was the inspiration behind artist Georgia O’Keefe’s piece “New York—Night.”
Originally designed as a residential-style hotel with wind-swept terraces to entertain, the Neo-Romanesque style edifice, a New York City Landmark, exudes the ambiance of a private club.
The Benjamin was fully redesigned by Interior Designer Lauren Rottet and restyled in partnership with Benjamin Sleep Expert, Dr. Rebecca Robbins, to bolster the residential appeal and create an ambiance of relaxed sophistication.
Denihan purchased the hotel, formerly the Beverly hotel, in the late 1990’s and following a complete transformation, reopened it as The Benjamin in honor of the family-owned company’s founder, Benjamin Denihan, Sr., an entrepreneur with a deep commitment to personalized customer care.
