The Benson is full of historic Charm, Elegance and Class. From Check-in to Check-Out the entire staff will make you feel welcome. Make it an extended weekend so you have time to take in their evening wine tasting, entertainment and restaurant. A nice central location can put you with walking distance the Pearl, Downtown or the Saturday Market for the...

Fabulous hotel , great staff and awesome location. We stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. I would recommend a visit to the bar. The staff and service are fabulous and quick. Lots to do in the area close to the Pearl District and downtown.

Outstanding staff at an amazing hotel with exceptional character. Trisha at the front desk always remembers me and greets me with a smile every time. Johnny the valet goes above an beyond. The staff feels like family at my home away from home.

We booked this hotel after reading reviews on Trip Advisor - it was on the 6th floor- Usually we like bed and breakfasts, but could find none available close to the center of the City.) The downside boiled down to two things - 1. the exterior of the building is full of scaffolding as there's work in progress; 2. The...

We booked Benson on Priceline, described as a four star. We were very impressed with the beautiful lobby. Unfortunately, the room we were given looked out onto a very close brick wall - and there was a dirty coffee cup on the nightstand. The staff were apologetic and gave us a new room.....which had a torn bedspread and the desk...

A grand old hotel that's beauty and old time customer service excels. The interior of the hotel was fantastic. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Jake's craw fish seafood restaurant was recommended and the staff made reservations and provided directions to the restaurant, a great place to go.. Highly recommend..

Bed was uncomfortable I had a terrible back ache the entire week. Don't forget to bring your room card to get ice. I locked myself in the ice room, thank goodness my husband came looking for me. The front desk and restaurant crew were both wonderful. The hotel was easy to find and in a great location.

The hotel had nice accommodations for a business event being centrally located. The ambience was great with an old school vibe. Staff was pleasant and courteous. The room was so so, the TV was ok and the AC/heating unit was very loud and noisy
