Limited Food Service: Due to Oregon State mandate, we have temporarily closed our public dine-in options at The Palm Court and El Gaucho, and we are no longer offering Room Service and take-out options. Snacks and beverages 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. Our nightly Sipping Hour and live jazz music Wednesday-Saturday has been suspended during this temporary closure. For more information on our COVID-19 response Click here.

Changes to our Amenity Fee: Please note that during the period that The Palm Court and El Gaucho are closed, we have made some changes to the services & amenities provided as part of our Amenity Fee. The complimentary appetizer during your stay will be replaced with a $10 food credit per day that can be used toward snacks and beverages from Simon’s Pantry located at the Front Desk. The complimentary champagne toast at El Gaucho will be replaced with a complimentary glass of beer or wine at The Benson.

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.

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.
