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

Stayed at the Benson in early September 2016. My wife and I were in Portland for a meeting which was being held at the hotel. The hotel has a very warm and charming feel about it. The lobby has great stained woodwork throughout. The employees at the front desk were very helpful and efficent at check-in. I would say that... More

Stayed at The Benson for one night. Hotel is old and the rooms a little on the small side. Room had two double beds which was very tight with 2 adults in each. I was disappointed with one of the front desk agents at check out. When I asked her for map and downtown sight information, she circled a hotel... More

No car is necessary at the Benson. You are walking distance to downtown and transit is a short walk from the hotel. Charming, clean, comfortable and cozy...a lovely hotel and part of Portland's history. Lots of wonderful pillows and a very comfy bed!!
