We stayed in Portland for four days and it was a treat to return back to this wonderfully historic hotel. We had the Junior Suite which was a nice size room with a "living room" area. I really enjoyed the shampoo, conditioner, and bodywash was in pump bottles in the shower. You never ran out. They had Starbucks coffee for... More

Stayed here for a girlfriends night in Downtown Portland. Beautiful, classy,very friendly staff, reasonable price, great location!!! We were able to check in, walk through the Pearl District, then walk to Pioneer Square and finish with a great view of downtown Portland. Beds were very comfortable. Even got towels folded like elephants!

Staying at the Benson was very relaxing. The rooms are beautifully decorated and well organized. Although the rooms aren't huge (as someone else commented), they are very comfortable. Everything is done well at the Benson. The staff was great, the ambience was very inviting, the location is very close to restaurants and stores, and the bed was oh, so comfortable.... More

The hotel is quite grand. I found a price online that was the cheapest of several in the area if I prepaid. I also got a junior suite with the prepaid price. I thought the room was quite nice. It's an old hotel so the bathroom was extremely small. The windows are old, drafty aluminum so it's VERY noisy even... More

Family trip here as we spent a few days local at local colleges. Service was very friendly. Bar served some very nice drinks. Was a bit disappointed by the room as we reserved a junior suite for three, checked in, and then discovered that there wasnt a hide-a-bed in the sofa. After a call, was wheeled in a roll-away bed....

The head bartender who has worked at the hotel bar for the past 16 years made our stay. He was everything that one looks for when relaxing at a bar that you are not familiar with. Being in the hospitality business, I appreciate, this gentleman who was "all in" on making you feel good about being there. Despite being overly... More

My wife and I have stayed here a couple times. I typically would have rated it a 3-4 but this last stay feb 2014 was really disappointing. Room was ok, clean, and ready when we checked in. The main restaurant in the hotel is now permanently closed for cost cutting reasons. The lobby restaurant serves a limited breakfast, lunch and... More

I was traveling on business with a coworker, and we arrived late in the evening. We booked a room with 2 double beds, but they only had a King room. To compensate they supplied a roll away and gave a 50% discount for that night. The next day they moved us to a nice room with a view and provided... More

First, please let me say that the Benson Hotel is magnificent. Their staff were all very helpful and courteous as well as professional. If my review were based on their service and quality alone, they would have all five...circles?...filled in. My partner and I planned our visit during what was, we came to find out, a VERY noisy weekend of... More
