Classic, elegant and comfortable.
For me, it’s THE place to stay in Portland. Great downtown locale and first rate service and amenities. No need to travel for excellent food and drink, if you do want to explore, it’s not far to find interesting options. I come to Portland to visit family and friends and the Benson is a perfect place to stay and bring friends and family.l

Historic and beautiful
My husband and I stayed here one night in June. We were coming from the Southern coast of Oregon and decided to make the car trip the day before our flight was to leave so we picked The Benson to stay the night. I LOVED it! It is beautiful! You can walk to many restaurants and shops in the downtown area, conveniently located. We had breakfast in the dining room before heading for the airport and the food was excellent. The waiter told us all about the history of the hotel and it was really interesting. I’d definitely would stay here again and again and again….
Great Place...A little pricey, but worth it
Construction at the front of the building made it difficult to find, initially, but once we were inside, the hotel was wonderful. The staff were courteous and professional and we were able to walk to many downtown shops and restaurants without a car. It was a bit pricey, but worth it for a few nights away.

Great hotel for location, meeting facilities and room aesthetics and comfort
Great places to eat, shop, and explore either within walking distance or a short Uber ride away. Attending a meeting there and the setup, food and drink, and staff added to the success of the meeting.
Lovely historic hotel
Beautiful old hotel in the heart of downtown. very Close to great restaurants, powell’s bookstore and the Pearl Disrrict. since downtown Portland is small the river front and north end of downtown are a maximum 15 min walk away. Beds are very comfortable and the hotel has been recently remodeled
