Originally established in 1927 as the Beverly hotel, this Neo-Romanesque edifice is considered to be one of the most recognized works by famed architect Emery Roth. The edifice so inspired artist Georgia O'Keeffe, she painted it as the subject of her piece "New York--Night." In November 1997, Denihan Hospitality Group purchased the hotel, formerly the Beverly Hotel. It was named The Benjamin in honor of the family-owned company's founder, Benjamin Denihan, Sr., an entrepreneur with a deep commitment to personalized customer care. Still today, the hotel offers the personal attention of an elite NYC social club.

The Benjamin was fully redesigned in 2012 by Lauren Rottet of the international architecture and design firm Rottet Studio. Originally designed as an apartment hotel with wind-swept terraces to entertain, The Benjamin now boasts a distinctly residential feel with up-to-the-minute artistic elements throughout, inspiring guests to consider it more personal pied-à-terre than hotel.

The Boutique Hotel features 209 room accommodations including 50 studios and 98 One-Bedroom Suites.

The Benjamin has recently been awarded the honor of NYC Landmark status. Recognized as one of the premiere hotels built in the 1920's, The Benjamin represents the early evolution of skyscraper design in New York City. The hotel's special character and special historical aesthetic has contributed to its value as part of the development, heritage and cultural characteristics of New York City.
