We live only a few miles from The Benson and use it for personal celebrations such as anniversaries, birthdays, and staycations. In the past I hosted many business meetings there and lodged the participants, who invariably reported excellent experiences. The Benson is my go-to choice always.

Hotel's Favorite
We have stayed here once or twice before; this one was a "get away from home after months of COVID isolation" visit. We felt quite safe, with staff following the face-covering expectations and us declining cleaning of the room during our stay. The room was spacious and felt very clean, with good air conditioning. Solid Internet, good TV. Nice perks with a glass of wine in the bar each night. We didn't eat at the restaurant, El Gaucho, this visit as we preferred to seek out restaurants with outdoor seating. We had a very nice stay though. Great hotel. PS. Check out the historical photo exhibition in one of the stairwells!

This is one of the most elegant hotels I have stayed in. It was clean and warm with a ton of history and old charm. I am not sure how old the hotel is, but it had that first class feel to it. The staff was friendly and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend this hotel for any stay or event.
