Great location and price for it. Close to airport MAX line.
We were visiting friends, who recommended The Benson, and we are so glad they did. The location right in the center of town was phenomenal. We took the MAX line to/from the airport and it’s a quick walk from the stops to the hotel. Staff were super helpful and friendly. Rooms are spacious enough, with Tempurpedic beds, and lotsa pillow options. We’d definitely stay again.
Loved this hotel!
We really enjoyed our stay. Staff was so friendly. Bed so comfortable. Location great. Only downfall was no pool for our 10 year old but everything else was great! We would definitely stay here again.
Great location! Friendly and helpful staff! Nice and clean rooms!
The location is hard to beat and allows one to get to many places on foot. All of the staff (concierge, front desk and housekeeping) are friendly, lend an ear and provide great suggestions. The room I had was nice and the bed was so comfortable! Besides, everything was squeaky clean!
Portland's best boutique hotel
Wife and I have spent several nights at the Benson, they always are top tier in service and have a great downtown location. Terrific period decor, the bar has quality cocktails along with great service from a very experienced wait staff.

Center of Town Classic Hotel
Wonderful place to stay and right in the middle of everything. Flew from SFO for one day conference and stayed the weekend with my wife. Just so happens to be Pride parade and sunny weather. Easy Lyft ride to the hotel that takes about half an hour. Very easy check in. Room appeared to be recently updated. The bed was the best I’ve slept in for awhile since it was memory foam and very comfortable. Nice king size bed with ample room size. Room had 2 luggage racks which is great for wife and I to keep things off the floor. Bathroom very clean and easy to use faucets for sink and shower. Nice to see water saving feature on toilet with 2 separate flush volumes. Coffee in the room is so convenient. The desk and easy chair are nice and Wi-Fi comes with the room and appears a very fast connection speed. Our business conference was in the hotel and the meeting rooms and meals/snacks were very nice. Lots of shopping and restaurants are within walking distance so very convenient including the Saturday market, Nordstrom’s, Ruby Jewel ice cream and Blue Star Donut places! Tried Andina’s which is a great place for Peruvian food. Such a foodie town! Late check out was available so we were able to have our last lunch at Tasty and Alder which had a 1.5 hour wait but that’s the usual for this place. Well worth it. Overall, if you can splurge, try out the Benson. You won’t be disappointed.
