Happy Holidays! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your visit to The Benson.

Is this hotel within walking distance of Reed College? If not, can you name some hotels that are?
Reed College is out in the suburbs. There is a lovely park across the street with the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. You will certainly need some sort of transportation (Uber, rental car, public transit) to get there.
