Really enjoyed my 3 night stay at the Benson in Portland. Was slightly concerned as I had read about poor service, showers that were not well regulated with hot water, but it appears all the problems have been fixed as I had very little if ant thing to complain about. It's a grand hotel, well located in downtown, excellent service... More

Extremely polite and helpful staff ( the concierge were absolutely super). 3. We asked for a room on the upper floors, slept with windows open and it was still very quiet. 4. Within walking distance... More

Our luggage was left in the closet when we left for the day. When we returned, it was very apparent that someone had gone through our bags (my 16 year old doesn't fold his clothes and they were neatly folded and arranged in his suitcase when we returned). The double-size rooms are very small and if you are a large... More

Portland is a great walking city, and the Benson will put you right downtown, and within walking distance of the Pearl and Nob Hill neighborhoods. We parked our car in the hotel garage, and didn't take it out until the day we left. If you book through the "Portland Perks" Site, you'll get free parking and a lovely continental breakfast... More

Stayed here for a couple nights during a personal business trip. The staff were wonderful. Everyone made everything easy. We had a wonderful time enjoying the vintage atmosphere of the hotel. Just sitting in the lobby listening to the piano player in the bar was relaxing. Our room was comfortable and clean. I loved the air conditioning in the room,... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Benson. The lobby is so warm and inviting with wood panel walls and a fire burning on a rainy day. Our room was very well appointed and spacious, with a very comfortable King bed. The concierge was friendly and helpful. We would love to return.

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!
