Solid trip. I would visit again. I thought the rooms were clean and well stocked the bar was a little underwhelming when compared to a few of the other hotel bars in the area but the staff was friendly. I think i would try somewhere else before I went back to experience a little more of the area such as... More

Fantastic bar staff and hotel lobby. Friendly courteous service. Helpful concierge. Convenient area overrode the number of homeless on the streets. Saturday artist market well worth attending , local artists, also flowers are incredible. Close to everything. Trolley tour worth it.

The Benson is a beautiful historic grand old hotel located in downtown Portland. A Coast hotels property, we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a penthouse room on arrival. I can only surmise this is because we have stayed at several other Coast properties over the years. The room was outstanding, offering sweeping views of Mt. Hood from the... More

The Benson Hotel is great if you are desiring to be in a central part of Portland, otherwise it can be quite obnoxious. Lots of street noise from surrounding bars, clubs, and antics from the lovely people of Portland...

Beautiful and fun hotel to stay at. It has a Downton Abbey charm. Walking distance to everything. Comfortable bed with lots of pillows. All of the food was delicious. Heard the hotel is haunted and that you can request a companion fish for the night. Thought I would see what the companion fish was all about so I went to... More

Rooms have been updated and they got rid of those uncomfortable temperpedic beds! Room service fast and friendly. Views of Portland or gorgeous. This is more of an adult hotel, has a nice lobby bar and a word paneled sitting area to meet friends and chat I've a cup of tea.

Great space with good views. King bed was extra comfy. Renovated bath had a great shower, though sink and toilet space was minimal. Got the lovely swan folded towel design...how do they do that? Had a fine room service dinner. Tasty and delivered in a timely manner.

Everyone was friendly and the room clean and very comfortable. It also is located in a great part of Portland! The food was great, the room was great and the people were great. I couldn't have asked for a better stay and hope to return in the future.

From the moment we arrived the staff was extremely helpful. The valet helped in finding an excellent parking garage. The room was excellent. The bathroom could be larger, but when the Benson was built in 1912 I assume we didn't need such large "spa" type bathrooms. Everything was excellent.

Beautiful classic hotel in the heart of downtown Portland. Very nice room decor with good use of space in a small bathroom. Single pane glass with gaps in the room window meant a lot of street noise, even on the fifth floor. The elevators were rather slow. Staff members were friendly and helpful. Told us about a self parking alternative... More
