NYC's Benjamin Hotel Is Bewitching This Time of the Year

Rachel Feinblatt | October 22, 2020 | Travel


We all can agree that this year has been filled with tons of spook and candy (admit it, late-night trips to the pantry have been filled with sweets and treats). Contrary to popular belief, Halloween has not happened yet, and October 31st will be filled with the usual goodies, for better or worse.

“If you’re looking to partake in some fun and unique Halloween festivities this year, make sure to come to visit us at The Benjamin Hotel in Midtown Manhattan!” says Chrissy Denihan, managing director of Denihan Hospitality.


The Benjamin Hotel, located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, has a killer lineup for Halloween festivities, incomparable to any other Halloween. To kick off their Hall-o-week events on October 29th, world-renowned pumpkin carver, Hugh McMahon, will be doing a LIVE pumpkin-carving session outside of The Benjamin Hotel (on the corner of 50th and Lexington). Of course, safety is a priority, so there will be socially distant pumpkin carving taking place from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.


The property is also hosting an awesome social media costume contest, where the lucky winner will receive a suite stay at the Benjamin Hotel. What could be better? All participants have to do is follow @benjaminhotel on Instagram and post their favorite costume from any year, using the hashtag #BooAtTheBenjamin.


The good news is, the pandemic is not stopping The Benjamin Hotel from putting on the ultimate Halloween show this year. After all, it only comes once a year! Get ready to trick or treat; good time is not officially canceled just yet.
