A friend and I decided to have a moms night out and booked this hotel for the night. All things seemed to be going well when we checked in. The hotel was clean and nicely decorated. The issues started the following morning. Construction startled us awake before 7 in the morning! For two mom, we were both hoping to get... More

This is a beautiful downtown hotel adjacent to a top Steak house, easy walking distance to downtown amenities. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is outstanding .The rooms are spacious with all modern touches. A complimentary wine tasting on Friday night in the lobby

We stayed at the Benson for one night and loved it. The best part was the bed. I was so impressed with the comfort of it that in the morning I looked to see what kind of mattress it was and sure enough, it was a tempurpedic--the best! It was a real treat. Would definitely stay there again and have... More

We booked this hotel originally because we planned on taking our pup with us, but ended up leaving him with a sitter (Dog Vacay!). The hotel is charming (read: old and smallish) but has everything you will need for a stay! Service was timely and friendly, food was good, mini bar prices are comparable to a vending machine, and the... More

We LOVED THE BENSON! They put us in a corner room and were just spectacular to us! We try to stay here whenever we come to Portland. We think it's the BEST place for the price in the area! Highly recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone!

The Benson is a lovely hotel, a beautiful Portland classic, in a fantastic location, and overall our stay was great. However, when we arrived, we found the reservations manager had incorrectly entered our Trip Advisor reservation into the wrong date. We had purchased online/reserved for Saturday and the hotel had us down for Sunday. Fortunately, they were not sold out... More

The hotel is absolutely beautiful and is in a great location. However, our room was filthy even after it was cleaned "again." I would recommend the Benson for others that do not care about a clean room because the staff was amazing and as I said centrally located.

We had a wonderful stay at the Benson. Enjoyed the wine tasting in the lobby in the evening. Happy hour in the Palm Court was excellent. My only negative was the noise on Broadway in the wee hours of the morning but this is not a hotel issue it's a downtown Portland issue. I would highly recommend staying at the... More
