The Benjamin Hotel Review

: Designed by legendary architect Emery Roth, The Hotel Beverly opened in 1927. Its design was so inspirational that Georgia O’Keeffe is said to have painted it from her apartment across the street. Purchased in 1997 by the Denihan Hospitality Group (DHG), the hotel underwent a dramatic restoration, re-opening in the spring of 1999 as The Benjamin. All rooms and suites have fully equipped kitchenettes with granite countertops, refrigerators, microwaves and coffee makers. Insomniacs will be delighted with the pillow menu, featuring twelve varieties. Other amenities include two dual-line speakerphones with data ports, high-speed Internet access and ergonomically designed seating. Bose wave radios are a nice extra. The bathrooms come with telephones, luxurious bathrobes and aromatherapy bath products. The National, chef Geoffrey Zakarian's modern bistro, boasts ever-so-sexy peacock blue leather banquettes and 1920s-esque light fixtures. Feel like dining in privacy? The restaurant also provides room service until midnight. There is also a "Winks' Kidzzz Club" service for the two-to-twelve set that provides aids such bedtime stories and stuffed pillow friends to ensure that children get a good night's rest so you can too. Don't want to leave your pooch out of the travel plans? Bring him along. The hotel has a full-on luxury program for four-legged friends, with services from dog-sized bathrobes and a bed menu to, yes, spa treatments and a pet psychic. Pampering for humans includes treatments at The Wellness Spa.
