Historic hotels sometimes get a bad rap--but sometimes, they're the perfect elegant antidote to a hundred identical chain hotels. The Benson has old-world style with all the modern conveniences. You'll feel that you stepped back in time from the moment you walk in the door.
The Benson is a popular meeting place because of its wonderful palatial lobby. With comfortable chairs, beautiful rugs, warm fireplaces, and attentive service, you'll feel pampered just by taking a seat.
The service at check-in is excellent. I'd recommend asking for a corner room; it's worth it to have the extra space. The rooms are lovely, well-kept and up-to-date. You'll definitely enjoy your stay.
If you have time, the London Grill downstairs is well worth a visit. The meals are excellent, and it's a beautiful place to celebrate any occasion. If you want old-school style, with Caesar salad and flambes done tableside, you'll enjoy it. Again, service is amazing. Live piano most evenings really adds to the ambiance.
Classic style with modern convenience; I love, love, love the Benson!
