if you have not tried a presidential suite for a group. Do it at the Benson. A great place to meet and plan the days and evenings or just stay in and have room service. no shortage of amenities the staff bends over backwards to help.

We took the train to Portland. The Benson is just a short walk from the Amtrak station. Its within walking distance to Powells books and all the cool restaurants! We stayed in a deluxe room which had plenty of space. The nicest thing was the windows actually open so you can get fresh air. They serve complimentary coffee in the...

As I came in late to Portland, I decided to stay downtown for the evening before heading to the coast, and scored a very nice deal at the last minute using an app on my phone for one of the finest historic hotels in downtown Portland. Parking is the only problematic issue in trying to stay here, especially on a...

This is a grand, old hotel that has been nicely refurbished. Our room was especially roomy for a downtown location. The restaurant, actually a lounge, had excellent food and service (omelette was tops). The hotel's most striking feature is the lobby with its beautiful wood, high ceilings, and grand fireplace, a most inviting spot. What a pleasant contrast to the...

Unfortunately I only spent one night in this lovely hotel. The lobby of The Benson is spectacular, the staff are very helpful, considerate and kind. Check in, valet parking were a breeze. The rooms are well maintained, the bathrooms are modern. The rooms lack coffee and tea facilities, though coffee (not tea) is available in the lobby. We arrived in...

Beautiful property, comfortable bed, nice bathrooms, very friendly and helpful staff. The only reason I am knocking it from 5 to 4 stars is the windows are drafty and I had to sleep in my long underwear even with the thermostat set to 72 (it got down into the teens outside). Not a big deal but I did wish they...

Room had a great view and was super clean. Everything was immaculate as you would expect. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. We had dinner at El Gauchos which was beyond our expectation on how good the food was. Overall this was a great experience and well worth the money.

“Room 1225 was on the 12th floor facing the Willamette River. Much of the view is blocked by other buildings, but since it faced east, we got some morning sun and could see some of the mountains when it wasn't cloudy.”

“The Valet Parking guys were fantastic, but very busy. Call ahead for your car -- if you do, the system works great. If you do not call ahead, you may wait 10+ minutes, but the Valet guys tell you this as soon as you get there. Listen to them and just call ahead and you should have very little wait.”
