Old World Charm with Modern Feel
Overnight stay at the Benson which we thoroughky enjoyed. Old world charm with modern updated rooms, located centrally – valet parking (was free on this occasion). Staff were warm and inviting with a welcome note in the room when we arrived, with the lobby all decked out for Christmas. Beautiful atmosphere and will definiately visit again if ever in Portland.

I love the old-world charm with the new renovations!
My husband and I always made this hotel our place when we came to Portland. I still love to come here. I love the grand entry, the mahogany bar, and the newly renovated rooms. I, also, love the close proximity to Powell’s Books, fine restaurants, and shopping. The staff are friendly and helpful, but not snobby. I always feel warm and at home here at the Benson. I went just before Christmas, for a dog show, and the tree and holiday atmosphere are very festive, indeed.
Business Holiday Party
It was a very pleasant stay I found the Hotel very nice and the valet service was great and so was the staff room was clean and fresh and lots of towels and extras like shampoo and cream rinse etc The food was great and the service was very good for our business
I recently stayed at the Benson while in Portland for a work conference (the conference was also held at the hotel in one of their large ballrooms). What a gorgeous building. It has a very refined, historical feel—the rooms have obviously been remodeled but most of the architecture in the lobby and public areas looked original. The room itself was nice and clean and I slept great for the three nights I stayed. The hotel is also very centrally located so it’s super easy to walk to a number of shopping and eating establishments (and there’s nearby MAX access if you want to go further). The staff was helpful and efficient as well—on the final day of our stay, my colleagues and I were able to check our bags with the concierge since we had to check out of our rooms but weren’t due to leave town for another couple of hours. We also had a fantastic restaurant recommended to us by one of the doormen who overheard us trying to decide where to go. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would like to come back sometime.
A wonderful place to stay to get in the holiday spirit. Beautiful decorations, great location to everything . Wonderful Shopping and restaurants all within walking distance. Be sure to go to El Gaucho !
