Second time - nice!
Stayed at the benson for the second time this year. Rooms are nice and beds are very comfortable. Banquet room staff were wonderful and very accommodating. (I think our guy was named Paul, and he was great both days). We ordered off the restaurant menu for lunch and it was just so so Breakfast was much better. Great location downtown, walking distance to everywhere. Would recommend staying here
Nice hotel with a pretty good location!
The hotel was nice and in a good location. I didn’t think it was anything special to write home about but would definitely stay there again given it’s location and friendly staff! I would give the staff a 5 star rating for sure!!
Benson Hotel in downtown Portland
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Benson, downtown Portland. The hotel is beautiful, my room was very clean, and all the staff: front desk, concierge, valet were friendly and helpful. I ate dinner in the Palm Court Lounge, didn’t know that the Restaurant had closed, but enjoyed the service and my dinner, “sliders” were very yummy. The Max is just a few blocks away and I also walked to Powell Books, one of my favorites in Portland.
Out of the cold
I often stay at the Benson because of its excellent service, warm hospitality, and cozy atmosphere. I like the relaxing fireplace area, the wood accents and the boutique style rooms. The Benson is also pretty dog friendly as they only charge a nominal fee for the entire stay and provide amenities for the dog. Surprisingly most Portland hotels are not dog friendly, they are dog tolerant as they charge an excessive fee that is not refundable.

Above & Beyond
First, I love the location to the Benson, everything within walking distance. I came to town to take a client to dinner and the game. The valet is one of the best in the hotel industry, they always remember my name and ask how I want my car. The room was awesome as always, but the best part for me this stay was my breakfast meeting with my client on Sunday morning. The waiter was engaging but knew when to leave us alone and the food was excellent. My client loved the atmosphere and food, so I couldn’t have done better. Thanks again to the staff and old world charm at the Benson.
