We have been staying at the Benson for several years now. We hit Portland maybe once a year and always stay at the Benson. The location is wonderful for the things we like to do--we love exploring the Pearl District. And, it's a good location for train travel from Seattle--one can walk from the station to the Benson. We love the old world charm of the hotel, especially the grand lobby--it's a wonder to behold. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. However, we have noticed over the years that the rooms definitely need better care and upkeep--some mold on the tiles in shower/tub surround, dings in and dust on the furniture. Not what one would expect from such a classy hotel. It is also close to one of our favorite restaurants--Andina in the Pearl; try it, you'll love it. We also ate breakfast at Mother's for the first time--also great! We took advantage of their "Legendary Experience" promotion so received free parking and $20 food voucher for the Palm Court, so it was a pretty good value.
