A beautiful place for the eyes and mind!

Such a wonderful experience! sitting in the lobby took me back to the times of style and grace. Such a warm and inviting feeling! Have a Bloody Mary in the lobby bar. you won’t be disappointed! Can’t wait to go back!😍

Lots of history in this old 1913 hotel. Valet parking available. Restaurant and full bar on site. Tour the inside lobby and upstairs and see the architecture of old Portland. Close to shopping, theater, shows and restaurants. For those who are into ghosts, it’s said to be haunted and the have tours that go to the Benson on Portland walking tours of the Portland tunnels. Clean but old.

Great historic hotel

The Benson is a great, classy hotel. The huge lobby is beautiful woodwork with a lovely carved ceiling and a nice gas fireplace at one end. Lots of comfy chairs and sofas. The Palm Court restaurant/bar is open into the wee hours and the food and drinks are excellent. Everyone is friendly, cheery and helpful. Our room was spotless and the decor tasteful. The only drawback was that the bathroom lacked a fan so it got a bit steamy while showering but that is a minor quibble. It’s right downtown and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

Benson Portland OR

Great hotel, always a great place to stay with easy parking and a great location. Across the street from a wonderful Italian Restaurant, Pazzo’s in downtown Portland. Only criticism is lack of space tor toilet articles in bathroom.

The Benson

A very nice 100 year old hotel in downtown Portland. Nice furnishings in the lobby, good security with the elevator system and very quiet. Easy to walk to restaurants and other attractions. Parking expensive at hotel but there is a garage right across the street.
