About The Hotel

Hotel Details

Manhattan’s Landmark Hotel. Classically Now. Classically NY.

Established in 1927 as the Beverly Hotel, The Benjamin Royal Sonesta’s Neo-Romanesque edifice is considered to be one of the most recognized works by famed architect Emery Roth. The edifice even inspired legendary artist Georgia O’Keeffe who chose it as the subject of her piece “New York—Night.”

Originally designed as an apartment hotel with wind-swept terraces to entertain, The Benjamin Royal Sonesta now boasts a distinctly residential feel with artistic elements throughout, inspiring guests to consider it more of a personal pied-à-terre than a hotel.

Our boutique hotel features 209 rooms and suites, including 50 studios and 98 one-bedroom suites.

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