Benson Hotel Portland, busy part of town
The Benson Hotel is great if you are desiring to be in a central part of Portland, otherwise it can be quite obnoxious. Lots of street noise from surrounding bars, clubs, and antics from the lovely people of Portland…
Business conference at the Benson
Beautiful and fun hotel to stay at. It has a Downton Abbey charm. Walking distance to everything. Comfortable bed with lots of pillows. All of the food was delicious. Heard the hotel is haunted and that you can request a companion fish for the night. Thought I would see what the companion fish was all about so I went to the front desk and requested one. Shortly after a little fish in a small glass fishbowl was brought to my room for the night. The fish is a nice touch and would be a lot of fun for kids. Love to stay there again!
Updated and friendly staff
Rooms have been updated and they got rid of those uncomfortable temperpedic beds! Room service fast and friendly. Views of Portland or gorgeous. This is more of an adult hotel, has a nice lobby bar and a word paneled sitting area to meet friends and chat I’ve a cup of tea.

Upper floor Jr Exec Suite
Great space with good views. King bed was extra comfy. Renovated bath had a great shower, though sink and toilet space was minimal. Got the lovely swan folded towel design…how do they do that? Had a fine room service dinner. Tasty and delivered in a timely manner.

Great place for a business trip or other stay.
Everyone was friendly and the room clean and very comfortable. It also is located in a great part of Portland! The food was great, the room was great and the people were great. I couldn’t have asked for a better stay and hope to return in the future.
