4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great hotel and location. Lots to do in downtown Portland. The hotel was old with great architecture. The bar near the lobby was always full of people and we spent a lot of time there. I would stay here again.

the room was incredible, except for @ 4;00 am every morning you were woken up by the garbage trucks down in the alley. Very noisy and impossible to sleep through. the noise in the alley would last for up to hour. might as well just plan on being woken up @ 4:00 and getting up.

The Benson has a very good location in downtown Portland. I found all of the staff to be welcoming and working hard to make my stay enjoyable. Room service breakfast was promptly delivered on Sunday morning. The valet parking was very friend and efficient. I found the lighting in El Gaucho left much to be desired. I prefer a less... More

Stayed at the benson for the second time this year. Rooms are nice and beds are very comfortable. Banquet room staff were wonderful and very accommodating. (I think our guy was named Paul, and he was great both days). We ordered off the restaurant menu for lunch and it was just so so Breakfast was much better. Great location downtown,... More

The hotel was nice and in a good location. I didn't think it was anything special to write home about but would definitely stay there again given it's location and friendly staff! I would give the staff a 5 star rating for sure!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Benson, downtown Portland. The hotel is beautiful, my room was very clean, and all the staff: front desk, concierge, valet were friendly and helpful. I ate dinner in the Palm Court Lounge, didn't know that the Restaurant had closed, but enjoyed the service and my dinner, "sliders" were very yummy. The Max is... More

I often stay at the Benson because of its excellent service, warm hospitality, and cozy atmosphere. I like the relaxing fireplace area, the wood accents and the boutique style rooms. The Benson is also pretty dog friendly as they only charge a nominal fee for the entire stay and provide amenities for the dog. Surprisingly most Portland hotels are not... More

First, I love the location to the Benson, everything within walking distance. I came to town to take a client to dinner and the game. The valet is one of the best in the hotel industry, they always remember my name and ask how I want my car. The room was awesome as always, but the best part for me... More

The Benson never disappoints. From the Bellmen upon arrival to the front desk to the housekeepers, everyone is so warm and welcoming. The bartenders and servers in the lobby bar are always smiling and greeting you as you walk in. The Benson is the total package. I already can't wait to be back.

Great central location in downtown. The building has great character and the history really comes through. The staff are amazing, and you are made to feel welcome at every touch point. Walking distance too so many great places to eat and shop.
