Benson Hotel is fantastic

Benson Hotel is well located in downtown Portland. Staff are very helpful, especially concierge and valets. Chandeliers, woodwork is all historic and amazing. Room decor is old world, huge beds, very comfortable, very nice showers. A best pick hotel.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful and attentive staff

Excellent hospitality at a classic hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Perfect hospitality, beautiful ambiance and decor. Small touches by the team at the hotel were appreciated and noticed (evening room service was a touch). I definitely will stay again.

When ever I visit Portland, my first place to check is The Benson. The staff are over-anxious to help, don’t expect a tip, and treat everyone like royalty (I think they have actually had royalty there.) The Valet service is always available and more than happy to provide directions and advice for food too. Bellman have GREAT stories of the Hotel’s history, spend some time with one! If you enjoy luxury, and antiques – this is the hotel for you! If you’re looking for the hip-hop place – this isn’t it – this is a grand hotel to relax, conduct business, and enjoy great food and beverages with live music in the Lobby at night.

Best in Portland

Whenever I want to be near downtown Portland I want to stay at The Benson. Great ambiance. Great location. Staff is warm and friendly. All at a good value compared to options. Concierge is quick and helpful. The Benson staff help me feel good when going out on the town and the same again when coming in after an evening downtown Portland. Like home.

Wonderful Stay

Stayed here for a family member’s wedding. We really enjoyed the hotel. Our room was nice, there was a great view of the city, and the beds were comfortable. Bonus was being right downtown, so we got to walk everywhere we wanted to go that weekend.

The wedding we attended was in the banquet hall of the hotel (nothing special about it, in fact I was surprised by how small the reception area was!) so it was great to just take an elevator upstairs at the end of the evening.

The hotel bar was wonderful as well. We arrived late on a Friday night (around 11pm) and even though the bartender was closing up for the evening, he was more than happy to give us each a drink to relax from the 6 hour drive we had just finished. We went back Saturday morning for breakfast at the same bar, and the eggs benedict was wonderful!

I will return to this hotel the next time we are in Portland.
