Very nice old hotel, comparable to some old gems of Europe. The location was the key factor, as well as safe and clean, which were not disappointing. Value for dollar was not terrible but at the price we paid per night many more amenities would have been nice: no breakfast (*other than room service), no access to fridge unless you... More

Wi-fi is free for guests. Bed, pillows and linens all very comfy and cozy. Excellent location for exporing downtown Portland. I will happily come back to stay here anytime. Easy access from... More

Bathroom is spa like and modern with nice bathrobes. The room is old and dated with crystal foyer fixtures. Bed is firm and the ac is a bit wonky. Staff is very pleasant and the rate for the room was good. Wonderful lobby area and easy access to everything.

Requested early check in and received it with a smile. Slept like a baby. Requested late checkout - again accepted with a smile. The Palm restaurant staff was very friendly and the food perfect. My girlfriend and I pretended we were in Venice or some foreign land as we walked down the hall or looked up at the ornate wood... More

Beautiful Hotel, one of the best in Portland. This place just has a great old fashioned persona but is modern at the same time. In the evenings, enjoy a piano being played in the bar whilst you sip a cocktail!

Portland was a regular stop my last 9 years of working. I always stayed at the Benson unless they were sold put. Recently I visited Portland after being retired for over two years. The staff is amazing and remembered my name. I got an upgrade to suite. These rooms are classics. Sure the bathrooms are small but I sleep like... More

A group of eight, we were headed to Portland to say final goodbyes to a dying friend. It was also my birthday. The Benson had two lovely, well priced adjoining rooms that easily fit our group. The hotel is stunning. The rooms are elegant and clean, but the bathrooms were quite small. Two people could not fit at the same... More

The Benson achieved the pinnacle of excellent service delivery in comparison to the more than a hundred hotels in which I have spent thousands of nights. The restored classic interior seems to inspire the staff team to provide classic service.
