My room was very nice. I had occasion to eat to eat a late dinner and a couple of breakfasts in the bar in the lobby. All meals were good, too. i would stay at the Benson again without any hesitation.

I would recommend offering some rooms that have more luxury bedding similar to the Westin and their heavenly bed marketing approach. No real amenities like a swimming pool or hot tub. They did have complementary wine tasting and coffee in the morning. Both on the low end of the quality spectrum.

Albeit this hotel is beautiful in design and the grander is exceptional. The staff and maintenance were left to be desired. Elevator 3 apparently was having issues and I wasn't the only person that had been trapped on the elevator that weekend. Perhaps shut it down and put it out of service until you get a proper company to come...

This was a charming historic hotel that was close to downtown. The entire staff was delightful and kind. The room was nice and bed was very comfortable. It was all top notch. However, for those who are light sleepers, there is the problem of the A/C unit clicking on and off throughout the night. Also, the bathroom is a little...

Everything was classes and the staff was not only helpful, but also friendly. The restaurant in the lobby had great food and drinks and the location is close to several restaurants, coffee shops, and Powell's books. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I've been visiting The Benson since the 70's. The best things about this hotel are: the staff, the historic building, beautiful lobby and convenient location. The restaurant staff consisting of Katherine, Bobby, John, Richard, plus others, remember you if your trip was two weeks ago or two years ago. Wonderful people. Definitely 5 stars. Taking into consideration that this is...

Nice, old hotel. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Centrally located in downtown Portland. Only complaint is the maid carts are the LOUDEST things I've ever heard. They should get new wheels or WD40. No black-out drapes.

Stayed for 5 days. Nice location for downtown exploring. Rooms small, WiFi VERY slow at times, no full length mirror in room, automatic door closer did not work so we had to make sure to shut door. Much better offerings in Portland. My wife and I have made it a point to try different hotels when we come up which...
