Best Hotel in Portland
The Benson Hotel is my and my wife’s most favorite hotel ever. We only have great things to say about them. We have stayed there on multiple occasions, got engaged there, and recently eloped there in mid-March! When we got engaged during the Christmas season, we had the opportunity to stay in the Presidential Suite, which is as amazing as you could imagine. Christmas tree, fire place, three TV’s, and so many windows with amazing views. I wish I could afford it every time!
The hotel is such a beautiful work of art that we decided we wanted to have our small wedding/elopement there. We contacted the hotel and were assigned to work with Kelly as our planner. She was a joy to work with, very attentive, friendly, and all around great. She booked us the private wine cellar for our wedding plans and had everything covered. With the coronavirus going around, we had started to get worried that we were going to have to cancel our wedding date (March 14th) but Kelly convinced us otherwise (since it was before stay at home orders and before everything in the city shut down).
Our wedding/elopement day was amazing and made even better since the hotel was super duper quiet that weekend. We pretty much had the run of the place. They allowed us to take pictures all over the hotel. Everyone we worked with on that day was amazing. Kelly once again did a great job and helped us with a few last-minute dilemmas and tried to make the day as special as possible. Our banquet Captain, Truman, was awesome. Super friendly, professional, a class act. The night before the wedding, my wife and I ate at the Palm Court and had John as our server. He was one of a kind and just wanted us to be happy. The morning after the wedding we had breakfast at the Palm Court, with Bobby as our server. He had a million different stories to tell and was a treat to talk to. Then when leaving the hotel we had the pleasure of working with Cord who was great. We won’t forget about the coconuts!
Thank you all for making our wedding day so very special and one we will never forget. We will definitely be staying at the Benson every time we go to Portland.

Great service , Summer at the front desk was great and friendly. Will the valet took off running to get my car I’ve never seen hustle like that for a guest. The check out process was great, I actually forgot my nice coat and didn’t realize it till a week later and I called to see if it was there. I got a call back right away from The housekeeping manager Liza saying they found my coat. It would be wait for me whenever I had time to pick it up. Just great.
Highly recommend staying here
Very comfortable California king size bed.
We stayed in a Jr suite and had lots of room to relax and enjoy our time. The room didn’t come with a fridge. We called the front desk to request one and they had one to us in less than 10 minutes.
We will definitely stay here again.

Our first time in Portland and we had a great time! The Benson made our weekend even more perfect. It is clean, friendly, our bed was so comfortable and I can’t say enough about the restaurant staff and food was fantastic!
This Hotel is a gem in Portland with both a great downtown location and a very classy and historic building. My room this time was a two bed larger room. All amenities are a nicer quality. Beautiful lobby with a restaurant and bar.
