Historic Downtown Hotel
This is a wonderful historic hotel in the heart of downtown. We had a lovely spacious corner room that was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Service is outstanding. The General Manager, George Schweitcer, seems to take a personal interest in every guest. I highly recommend The Benson.
Everything was great. The only thing I must mention was that the FREE wifi was very slow. I had to do some work while I was there and found this frustrating. I know I could have upgraded the wifi for another $10 per day. I did not want to do that and suffered a little while completing my work. Other than that, everything at the hotel was perfect. Great staff, rooms and amenities. The location, of course, is fantastic. I will stay there again the next time I am in Portland.
This hotel was fantastic and way beyond our expectations. The rooms were spacious and the decor is current. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. We are definitely planning a return visit!
Great location, well appointed, clean, wonderful staff and a pleasure to stay in. Nice hotel to host meetings. Shopping, restaurants and the bookstore nearby. I had forgotten how nice Portland is to visit, the Benson just made the city that much better.

a great 4 days in Portland
We were on a walking tour of the City which included the Benson– I was so impressed with the gorgeous lobby with its dark wood walls that after inquiring on availability I changed my reservation for a hotel stay the following week to the Benson! It was not that much more expensive than my reservation at a nearby chain hotel and was a great experience in every way!
