This is a nice hotel with nice rooms, average size. Nice but smaller entry area. Good workout area with good weights. I stayed here for 5 nights. I did have a few issues. 1) Contacting valet service after I got to my room did not work, until I called the front desk in the morning. I decided to cancel the...

Engaging, delightful staff; beautiful lobby; lovely room; perfect location. Highly recommend! I was consistently surprised by how helpful and genuinely kind everyone was, from the check-in staff to the bartenders to the concierge to the bellman. Fabulous team!

Very beautiful old hotel. It was in process of being resurfaced outside, but that didn't result in any inconvenience. Parking close by with tunnel to hotel was very appreciated and convenient. Great downtown location in walking distance of restaurants, shopping, etc.

We stayed in PH6. The room was tastefully decorated, neat and clean. Room service was prompt and personal - the person who took the order was also the server. The bed was very comfortable. Bath amenities provided. The only annoying thing was the docking device for iPad/iPhone in the sitting room was outdated.

From check in, to room quality, and front desk staff, all is well above the others. The Palm Court and it's staff truly make your meal and stay memorable. Will always stay at the Benson when visiting Portland.

The central downtown location was very convenient for enjoy the little bit of free time I had. I would certainly recommend The Benson and look forward to a return visit to...

Lovely, grand hotel. Super food (and great happy hour deals). Staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Great location to explore the city. We were made to feel welcome and that our patronage was important.

The Benson is a beautiful historic hotel. We felt like we were taken back in time. Everyone was welcoming and very helpful. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Portland. We especially enjoyed every visit to their restaurant.

Historic hotel with comfortable, clean, modern rooms. The concierge, the servers, the desk clerks - just couldn't do enough for us and constantly offered entertainment. If you don't stay here, at least pop in to see the coffered ceilings, the tile work, the chandeliers, and the wood. Yes it's a bit dark but sit in the bar/coffee shop and enjoy...

There was not adequate lighting, had a difficult time reading. The pillows were not feather/down, woke up with a sore neck. There was not hot water for shower. Room service coffee was hazelnut which was horrible and couldn't even drink it. We were suppose to stay 2 nights but left after one. Location is not good close to shady area...
