We were in town for 4 nights on a business trip for my wife in Portland. The conference (maybe 120 people?) was based in this hotel, so staying here was very convenient. We were greeted right away by the friendly staff at the front desk. They confirmed us and had our room ready even though we arrived 3 hours before... More

The rooms are large and clean. Try and stay on a high floor facing W. Broadway. The lobby is simply beautiful and the staff takes pains to keep it lustrous. A pleasure to sip coffee or anything else in this grand space.

My husband and I drove down to Portland from Seattle to spend one night at The Benson. I had googled to find the hotel that was most haunted. Supposedly The Benson has some ghosts, we looked pretty hard, but didn't see any. The hotel is gorgeous, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Sophie at the front desk is... More

Nice place, great location, very clean rooms. Only draw back is the valet parking at $ 40/night that i do not think was clearly advertised. I would only recommend to couples that are wanting to get away not for families. Other than that great place!!

My husband and I took a couple day get away and went shopping in downtown Portland. The hotel was in an excellent location. We really enjoyed the look and feel of the hotel. It was very classy and clean. We had a great stay and plan on returning in the future.

We were visiting Portland for a concert. The Benson is in a great location (convenient to the train station, shops, restaurants, etc). The have a beautiful lobby, which was decorated for the holidays, and excellent staff. Rooms are showing their age, but still clean and comfortable.

We have stayed at The Benson each for for about 13 years now, and we have always received excellent service. The staff, from the Front Desk to Housekeeping, is excellent and goes out of their way to make your visit memorable. We tried another hotel one year, but it just didn't compare to The Benson, so we returned - and... More

Close to theCrysatal Palace, Powell's, Dante's, VooDoo Donuts, the Star Theater, the Pearl District and the Portland Saturday Market. All of these locations are walkable from the hotel or a short Uber ride. Lots of cool restaurants and shops are located in the area, check out Mother's Bistro for brunch. This is a pet-friendly hotel, so I did have to... More

Thank you for choosing The Benson Hotel. As you mentioned, the Benson’s location is more than ideal as we have a number of tasty restaurants and shopping outlets right in our backyard. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope you’ll join us next time you’re in Portland. More
