I stayed at The Benson on April 21, 2006. I was a little worried because I had secured my room through Priceline at $89 for the night and I had read several bad reviews on Trip Advisor. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. When I arrived, I asked about upgrading to a king size room and they offered a JR suite at only a cost of $30 more over above what I paid through priceline. The room was great. It had a wonderful view of downtown Portland, one of the bridges (can't remember the hame), the Columbia river, and Mt. Hood. It was room 1017, so if you can get that one. It had a nice sitting area with a loveseat, chair, tables, and the armoire with TV in it. The king size bed was absolutely wonderful!! Because it is an old hotel, the lighting can be a little dim, but it was fine for me. The ONLY complaint I have is that the bathroom is too small. It has a pedestal sink so there is no room for your makeup and stuff. Otherwise, I thorougly enhjoyed my stay. Also, customer service was EXCELLANT. I didn't expect that because I have stayed at other 4 star hotels by going through priceline and they have always treated me different than a person that would pay the full rack room rate. But hey, I'm willing to give up a little bit of customer service to stay in 4 and 5 star hotels at 1/2 the price!!
