The Benson is one of the finest hotels at which I've ever stayed. We held a corporate retreat for 50 people over 3 days. Outstanding service, environment and food.

Stayed here overnight as my flight got in a bit late and didn't want to drive the 2-3 hours trip home to Bend. Love to see that an older established hotel has not decided to change their decor and become modern. great location!! Great room!!!

Room Tip: It was within walking distance to a few eateries!!! Otherwise the valet service is super prompt!!

Friendly staff, beautiful lobby, well-appointed rooms... a seamless and effortless experience. Only a few minor details of note. Our room was on the top (12th) floor of the old part, absolutely beautiful with a ceiling-mount crystal fixture and a very comfortable Tempur Pedic bed. The window, however, was old and debris caught between the casement and the frame, along with old rusty hardware, causing the window to not close properly. Banging noise from street musicians kept us awake at 11:30. Besides this, the valet parking (make sure to pick a rate including this-it's not in the AAA rate) was stellar, employees and concierge helpful and readily available, and convenient location to MAX line. The Palm Court breakfast buffet was a tasty and easy option for breakfast. Wish it had a pool or a jacuzzi, but neither of these are available. Also, a shame the London Grill is closed. I wish I could have tried the place after reading all the stellar reviews about it. Oh well, still a lovely hotel. An overall great stay!

Room Tip: Rooms in the old portion have great character. You can request this after booking by calling them.

This is a very nice hotel, centrally located in downtown Portland, The service is excellent and the price is quite reasonable. Also, the lobby is great for relaxing or having a small group meeting.

The Benson is a great downtown "old school" style hotel. We enjoyed the friendly staff, the classic surroundings, and the very comfortable beds. The valet service makes parking a breeze and the location is great for walking all around downtown Portland. The bar in the lobby is a comfortable place to hang out when you are done with your day of exploring fantastic Portland.

Room Tip: The rooms that face the street will have some "night city noise" of trucks. The viewless...
