The Benson: a classy hotel with a great location
The Benson is a beautiful hotel with a great location. The room was spacious and nicely appointed. My week long stay was very nice and met all my expectations. There was one time I requested some assistance for the room, and the response time was unreal. Not only did they respond quickly, but they immediately took care of my issue allowing me to get out and sight see. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Benson.
Old world feel with modern amenities
We’d never been to Portland so we chose the Benson because it was in the heart of downtown. Portland is a great walking city and this hotel is located close to many downtown attractions (like the quirky Pearl District and that yummy Powell’s City of Books). It’s a beautiful old-world hotel with an unfailingly friendly staff. (In fact, everyone in Portland seemed pretty friendly – even the TSA agents at the airport!) If you want a good base with reasonably luxurious accommodations at a reasonable price, this is your place. I only wish we’d had more than a few days to spend there.

Excellent hotel, pricey, but great location downtown
We had this recommended by a friend, hotel was old character but top notch. A bit sketchy in downtown portland, so just be aware of your surroundings. This hotel was wonderful to us and our visit. All things walkable and you can find whatever you want!
Awesome place to stay.
We arrived early to meet up with family already there. They got my phone number and called me when room was ready which was well before normal check in. Restaurant staff was amazing. Very engaging and really made the meal enjoyable.
Comfortable, Clean, & Friendly
Stayed for 4 nights and highly enjoyed the stay. Good location and close to everything I needed while in town for a wedding. The bedding was extremely comfortable and the hotel is nicely renovated for an older building. I was mostly out and about throughout my stay so I cannot comment on many of the amenities, but I slept really well and that’s what counted the most for me!
