Treat yourself! Love this hotel.

I have gone The Benson for several special events and stayed in the beautiful rooms including the Presidential Suite (which was amazing) and junior suites. Everything from the linens to the service was exceptional. The lobby is always gorgeous but especially so during the holidays. You've got to see it! I've also been to business meetings in many of the different meeting rooms as well as the gorgeous "Crystal Ballroom" with it's chandeliers and ornate ceilings to the large Mayfair Room with it's stage and ample seating. The food, the staff the attention to detail - all excellent.

Home away from Home, Beautiful Rooms.

I have stayed several times, and the service is always amazing, consistently amazing. The rooms are beautiful, clean, whatever need you may have the staff will try to accommodate. The food at the attached El Gaucho is absolutely amazing. Also other very close restaurants, coffee, desserts, all so close.
