My daughter and I are staying at The Benson this weekend for a sports competition and this is our second night. I’ve been impressed from the moment we arrived. The hotel is gorgeous and has this timeless charm. Every part of the hotel has history and character. Well preserved but with modern updates. Everyone from the valet on has been so welcoming, professional and helpful. We’ve eaten two dinners in the hotel dinning room so far and the food has been amazing. Our waiter both nights has been John and he has provided expectational service, going above and beyond to accommodate us. The food is delicious. The room is so clean and the beds are very comfortable. The bathroom is very nice too. I’m VERY picky about where we stay and we will definitely be staying here in March when we return to Portland. *** I have felt completely safe here with my daughter. I would recommend Benson for the location, service and safety in downtown Portland.

Hotel's Favourite
We always wanted to stay at the elegant old Benson and booked the presidential suite despite all the warnings about downtown Portland being unlivable. We didn't find it that way at all; there are homeless people in cities everywhere. Other problems failed to live up to the negative warnings. The hotel restaurant wasn't open and the free breakfast was only a bag with fruit, granola bars and yogurt but there are still plenty of other restaurants open. The suite was huge, with a big living room where our Portland friends came to enjoy wine before and after dinner elsewhere. Loads of closet space. The bathroom was massive, too, with a shower larger than many hotel bathrooms. The hotel's central AC wasn't working but two big portable units made up for it. The staff made the best of a difficult situation and we would consider coming back.

Thank you for the review and sharing it with others on Tripadvisor. We are glad you liked our Presidential Suite. We have two of them and they both are pretty amazing. Please accept our apology for the limited air conditioning. Unfortunately, our main chiller broke down and attempted repairs were unsuccessful. Consequently, we are in the process of replacing it. Our new chiller should be in place by August 25th. We would love to have you come back when our air conditioning and restaurant operations are back to normal. Thank you for considering to do so!d Sincerely, George Schweitzer

We had an okay stay here. Pros: -Location -Cool, historic lobby Cons: -Carpet in room was straight up nasty -The grab-n-go breakfast was terrible, with multiple days where most items were simply unavailable, and staff were very weird about just substituting items which were available for items that were available. -The beds were way too hard. All in all I had a fine stay, however it just isn't the best, either in value or quality of rooms, and I'll stay elsewhere next time.

Dear Matt, Thanks for apprising us of the pros and cons of your visit. There is no excuse for what you experienced on the "con side" of the equation. It is embarrassing to know that we put you in a room where the carpet condition was not acceptable. Please accept my sincere apology. Moreover, I am sorry that the you were not happy with the grab-n-go breakfast. Suffice it to say, I would like a chance to somehow make this up to you and regain your confidence in The Benson. Please call the Hotel and ask for the Executive Office. so that we may have a chance to visit and resolve this matter to your satisfaction. I would call you personally, but I do not have your contact information or the room number you stayed in. Thanks, nevertheless, for making me aware of your concerns. I hope to hear from you soon. Kindest regards, George Schweitzer Managing Director

First of all, this place is beautiful. This was our first time here and we will definitely come back. The service in both the hotel and palm Court restaurant is epic. Bobby who works at the restaurant has worked there for 40 years and is knowledgeable, kind, friendly, and very diligent working with those with food allergies. I highly recommended both the hotel and the restaurant. And don't forget to thank Mr. Benson while your there. I'm sure he and the rest of the "residents " will appreciate it. 👻

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Benson Hotel. The staircase was a fun little addition and my daughter had a great time exploring. We had desserts for dinner and we recommend the Marion berry cheesecake for sure!
