My stay at the Benson was wonderful. The staff and the rooms are welcoming and comfortable. Enjoyed a breakfast at the Palm Court and later in the afternoon some beverages there also. Both were very enjoyable. I would definitely stay here again.

Reed College is out in the suburbs. There is a lovely park across the street with the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. You will certainly need some sort of transportation (Uber, rental car, public transit) to get there.
