I would certainly stay here again. The staff was very nice and our waiter at breakfast was amazing. He had been there 35 years and pushed the experience from good to great. He was not our waiter the second morning but he went out of his way to talk to us. Great way to start the day. We ate at...

I really want to like the Benson hotel. My wife and I have been staying here since the 1980s. Maybe as I'm getting old, my sensitivity to sound has increased but it seems that there is more noise penetrating the rooms. We were in a penthouse suite (room 1413). There were the usual nighttime sounds of trains, ambulances, garbage trucks,...

This hotel exceeded my expectations. The lost art of subtle luxury and extravagance at an incredible value. I would stay at this hotel again and recommend anyone to stay here and enjoy the beauty and warm reception they provide.

After having traveled over 4 million miles on American Airlines and over 2 million on United.... primarily for business but also very much with my husband and children. I generally rate the comfort of a hotel based on the quality of its beds, pillows (and hopefully duvet) as well as the cleanliness/roominess of the bathroom and the water pressure of...

We loved this hotel, but do NOT expect the room to be like a newer hotel room. We picked this hotel for what it was A ROOM IN AN OLD CLASSIC HOTEL. The room was pretty standard in size, bathroom was a little small, but then again the hotel was built in 1913! We didn't expect a big bathroom. Overall,...

Not being able to check in until 4pm meant we had to wait until after an event to check in arrived at hotel and was unable to get room service at 11pm. Thermostat in the room did not work. Staff was great, friendly and very helpful. All in all it was an overly average stay at an overly expensive hotel.

Close to Powell's, plenty of bars & shops within walking distance. Good food in the bar. Very comfortable lobby - lots of places to sit with a glass of Pinot Noir. Had to stay here for business but would do so again for pleasure.

The Benson is a grand, historic hotel centrally located in downtown Portland. Our room was very nice and the beds were comfortable. We only spent one night but will return again. Great service, valet parking and pleasant staff.

My wife brought me to Portland for my first time on my birthday. She's familiar with the area and knew the Benson. Great choice. Old formality and beauty. Room is very nice and well appointed. Have had a terrific time and I'll be back to Portland and the Benson again

We booked a great deal, free valet, and affordable rate on Expedia. We wanted to explore the hotel because it was featured as a somewhat haunted hotel in Portland, and it looked very luxurious, so we were glad to land a sweet deal. I was impressed by the super nice valet as we first pulled up, he helped with luggage...

“I asked for no special location... my room was delightful. I'd trust the team at The Benson!”

“We stayed in 723. Room was comfortable, but the thermostat/fan was horrible. We like air circulating when we sleep and even though the unit had LOW, MED and HIGH for the fan...no matter which setting we had it on, nothing changed. We even set the temperature to 65 degrees and it never really did anything. We called and Maintenance came (very quickly, kudos for that!!) and he did test the temp that was coming out of vent and it was correct. Just no real air was being pushed out. We ended up sleeping withe window open, which was ok, but was quite noisy with city life. Would have preferred window closed and fan working. Everything else was great! Apparently they are upgrading units in rooms and haven't gotten to the 7th floor yet. Heard the 3rd or 4th floor is done.”
