New York, NY – June 25, 2013 – The Benjamin, a luxury boutique hotel ideally located on 50th Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City, is proud to be a recipient of the TripAdvisor® 2013 Certificate of Excellence. Now in its third year, the world’s largest travel site* takes this annual opportunity to celebrates hospitality excellence with a recognition given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews, with noteworthy praise and positive comments, on TripAdvisor. Winners of the Certificate of Excellence represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website, with only the top 10 percent receiving the prestigious award.
“We’re delighted to celebrate the success of hospitality businesses around the world, from Auckland to San Francisco, Hong Kong to Paris, which are consistently offering travelers an outstanding customer experience,” said Stephen Kaufer, president and CEO, TripAdvisor. “The Certificate of Excellence award provides top performing establishments the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers.”
To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.
“Our team at The Benjamin goes above and beyond to ensure that our guests have an exceptional experience, whether it is a celebratory occasion or a midweek business trip,” said Joe Gaeta, general manager. “To receive this amazing recognition from TripAdvisor underscores that our hospitality is appreciated and noted; it is a wonderful, well-deserved honor for the entire staff.”
The Benjamin will conclude the final phase of its full-scale renovation this summer with a complete redesign of its rooms under the guidance of Lauren Rottet, the namesake and founder of Rottet Studio. The aesthetic of the 209 guest rooms and suites are chiefly reflective of Rottet’s philosophy to create environments that feel personalized and residential.
