Great location in downtown Portland for all the city life amenities and clean rooms with friendly services. It is a good hotel for the value. One can walk to all the cafes and bars nearby the hotel. My favorite was it only a block away from all the food carts.

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Room was clean and comfortable. Bed was great. Location is ideal right in the heart of the city. And they have a free wine reception on Friday and Saturday night.

We enjoyed our stay here. The place is just a tad stodgy, but overall, the rooms were comfy cozy and well kept. The lobby is beautiful and I enjoyed eating breakfast there. The service was very good. The hotel location is pretty good, but there is a sketchy neighborhood just a couple of blocks over, so think about which way...

What a beautiful hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Clean and tidy, excellent room with a super comfy bed. Perfect location to get around Portland City easily and quickly. Only one criticism - one tea bag in the room, asked for more and never got them. Would totally recommend.

A wonderful lobby hall to step into, with beautiful woodwork and chandeliers. Cool to hang out, especially when the very good piano players are there in the evening. Food not so pricy and pretty decent, except the one main meal we had there with our conference group, which was bland, overcooked, and very uninspired, not to mention served with sloth...

It's incredibly loud here. The doors slam all day and all night, and there is no sound barrier between the hall and the guest room. As well, street noise comes through the loose-fitting windows. I didn't get any rest during my stay. Also, they will tell you when you make your reservation that they can prepare for gluten allergies, but...

Love this older hotel but pleasantly surprised with updated/remodeled rooms. So comfortable and nice features in the bathroom/shower. And the price of the breakfast was surprisingly affordable for in-room service. Great value for all of the food that is served.

This is a beautiful hotel, with lots of that "grandeur" of times past. My room was very comfortable and the bed was great -- I slept well the entire time I was there, which isn't always the case for me at hotels. I was there for a conference and the main ballroom, meeting rooms, and other facilities worked well for...

Thank you for providing your review of the Benson Hotel. It’s a joy to hear of your appreciation of the Benson Hotel’s ‘grandeur’ as you described it. The Benson was built in 1912 and has retained much of its original beauty. Guests have come to value the Benson’s proximity to various restaurant and shopping destinations. Thank you for choosing the...

The Hotel is classically beautiful and the staff is truly special. The hotel is located right downtown and close to restaurants, shops and theatres. The concierge was not only full of good ideas, he actually sent a complimentary appetizer to us at the restaurant he reserved for us. The hotel had complimentary wine tasting and the server was a friendly...
