The Benson, a Coast Hotel

Food Service Update: We have temporarily closed The Palm Court, our public dine-in restaurant at The Benson, and Room Service is temporarily unavailable. In partnership with El Gaucho, the Northwest’s Steakhouse Legacy located in The Benson, guests can enjoy exceptional dining and old-school tableside service that is the El Gaucho hallmark. El Gaucho is now open Tuesday through Saturday between 4:30 pm – 10:00 pm. A variety of snacks and beverages, along with fresh sandwiches made daily, are available for purchase at the front desk, where our ambassadors can also assist you with fast, fresh and affordable food delivery from a variety of local area restaurants. While staying in our downtown Portland hotel, enjoy the Portland food scene that has become part of the city’s fabric. Our guest service ambassadors can assist you with recommendations for local area restaurants now reopened. From a classic steak house experience to wood fire pizza kitchens, we have something for everyone.

Explore all Portland has to offer from one of the city’s most treasured historic landmarks. Founded in 1913, The Benson features elegant European design with a host of modern amenities. See why U.S. Presidents and CEOs have made our downtown Portland hotel their home away from home for a hundred years—and why The Oregonian voted us Best Portland Hotel in 2012.

Our superb location puts you within walking distance to all of the shopping, dining, and entertainment of the Pearl District, Pioneer Square, and downtown. Famous boutiques, bookstores, breweries, and performing arts are just steps away.

While retaining their luxurious Continental feel, our rooms were refreshed in 2017 to capture the perfect blend of aesthetics and comfort.

Our exceptionally friendly, service-oriented staff is one of the reasons you’ll find so many four-star reviews on our property. Looking for some hints on where to go or what to do during your stay in our hotel in Portland? Let’s chat.

The Benson features two of the most beautiful ballrooms in all of Portland—perfect for weddings, conferences and other events. We also have a range of meeting and private dining rooms to fit your needs. Our catering and events staff are always available to lend their expertise and help you create the perfect gathering that will be remembered by all your guests and attendees.
