Traveling Solo: A NYC Day Guide for the Modern James Bond

Experience Appearance

Traveling solo has its own pleasures; it’s a rare opportunity to build a day completely around your own tastes and to do what recharges and energizes you. If you are lucky enough to have 24 hours free in Manhattan, The Benjamin has suggestions for adding some extra luxury and sophistication to your spend-it-your-way day. Living well and finding unique and sophisticated experiences in the city are the hallmarks of a modern-day James Bond. Jumping your motorcycle over a helicopter or wrestling for your life on an airborne cargo plane is entirely optional.

SIN Before Breakfast
Start out your day with an energizing workout, customized to you. The Benjamin’s fitness partner, SIN Workouts (SIN standing for Strength in Numbers) will send a fitness concierge to your room for an assessment and personal training session. If you prefer the energy of a class to a one-on-one workout, SIN will whisk you away by car service to join one of New York’s elite private studio workouts. Let SIN put you through your paces with a workout to leave you feeling focused and strong.

Take On an Iron Chef
Stop in to The National for breakfast, located off The Benjamin’s lobby, and accept Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s challenge to appreciate the unexpected. From Irish oatmeal with dried fruits, brown sugar and hazelnuts, to biscuits and gravy with parsnip, you will find unexpected combinations of ingredients that bring out the best in each.

Cut it Close
Visit the Art of Shaving Barber Spa at one of their Manhattan locations and treat yourself to the “Royal Shave.” The master barbers of The Art of Shaving have elevated shaving to a thoroughly masculine and soothing ritual using traditional straight razors. At every step, your skin is perfectly prepared. From a hot towel and protective pre-shave oil at the start to after-shave balm at the finish (and with plenty of rich hot shaving cream and essential oils in between), you’ll leave relaxed and perfectly groomed.

Take Your Martini, 20 Stories Up
You’ll know you’re not in Kansas at the 230 5th Rooftop Bar (corner of 27th). Let spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and Empire State Building be the backdrop as you relax in the open air with cocktails and appetizers. If you aren’t in a martini mood, try a mojito made with fresh mint grown in the rooftop garden.

For other recommendations to fill out your me-time Manhattan day, consult with The Benjamin’s concierge, your expert on all things local.
