The hotel room and hotel itself was great. The air conditioner was not working properly and made sleeping almost impossible. The staff was very friendly, especially in the bar area. Great location. Will stay in winter months but not summer.

The Benson Hotel offers an excellent location and stylish elegance. It isn't the cheapest hotel in Portland but it is definitely one of the best. Enjoy a drink at the classy bar in the lobby, or just relax in one of the comfortable chairs and couches. Rooms are attractive and spacious. Both wi-fi and computer access are free. Spacious meeting... More

I stayed here end of June in a junior suite. In 2007 when I last stayed here, there has been no room decor change. Dead tired carpet, somber furniture waiting for retirement, lobby no changes etc. I love charm and antiquity but to read all the reviews glowing about this hotel is delusional. If you look stagnant things - great... More

Convenient location off the interstate from Seattle. Not far from shops and eating places. 7 blocks from the waterfront. Comfortable and clean rooms. Hot showers. Free internet. Parking expensive but then it's city prices. Friendly and helpful staff.

This hotel is so beautiful! I wish we could have spent more time there. The staff was very friendly and professional. The room was great and the bed, wow the bed was absolutely perfect. I had some of the best sleep I've ever had there. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone!

Loved being in downtown Portland. Easy access to all the sites. The staff is wonderful! Our bellman was full of information, friendly, engaging and most of all went out of his way to make sure that we were taken care of. We had breakfast Tuesday morning and our server was of the same caliber. What a treatable! Our room was... More

This hotel is charming, beautiful, luxurious, and comfortable. As you pull up to the hotel the valet crew is ready to greet you, open your door and take your luggage. The front desk help is extremely friendly and they answer any concerns you might have or need. The ambiance in the lobby is romantic and lovely. The services at the... More

I have stayed a the Benson several times and I would give the hotel itself a 5. However, on my visit last week to the hotel I was disappointed by the breakfast menu. I had gone there specifically to get huckleberry pancakes -- a specialty in the Pacific Northwest. I was extremely disappointed that these are no longer available!! Benson... More

This historic hotel is quite beautiful. It was especially convenient for our forays to Powell's Book Store. The light rail is nearby for longer trips, and there are several good restaurants in the area. The bar was convenient for a night cap and dessert. We also appreciated the accommodating front desk staff. I'd love to go back again.
