We enjoyed our stay here. Our room was lovely, and the staff was very hospitable. We ate at the restaurant as well, and the food was fantastic. I'd definitely stay here again if I were to return to Portland. OH...but please ask someone at the bar to play better music in the evenings. I'm pretty sure it was old-school kenny...

I stayed at the hotel for a week. The service was friendly and helpful. The rooms were large and comfortable with everything you might expect. The location is super for reaching all places in Portland, mostly in walking distance. The location on Broadway Ave. makes it a bit noisy at times (at night), but the experience was very good.

Hotel was good. Fire alarm went off for about 15 mins at 5AM, I saw that on previous reviews also. Location is good, nice bars and restaurants Close by. having to add characters to meet 200 minimum is dumb.

Our family stayed for one week. Loved the elegance without pretentiousness! Wonderfully caring staff. Great downtown location. Recommend the palm court happy hour for great food deals! The valets are extra special--

The Benson is a grand old hotel with a beautiful lobby in the heart of downtown Portland. Although I could've done without the fake flowers. The rooms are pretty basic and probably not worth $300. But the location is excellent and the beds are super comfy. You can easily get around without a car on public transit or walking. I...

Hard to be totally objective when you use your gift certificate for a free penthouse suite, having said that it was perfect, a large two room suite with a great bed, ample storage and a well equipped bathroom, the Benson still knows how to do it right,

Our stay at the Benson Hotel made our entire weekend. The staff was very welcoming and friendly at all times during our stay, so I felt relaxed from the moment that we pulled up to the hotel. The best part of the Benson may be its location. We were within walking distance of nearly everything that we'd planned to do...

As I prefer the older, classic hotels, this one fits the bill. The only issue that I have is that the pricing varies widely, this time it was the hotel affiliated with the trade show, and the orooms were offered at a reduced rate, then the next time you want to go there "on your own" the rate is way...

The Benson Hotel oozes history in a comfortable and welcoming environment. There is a level on which I always feel "home" in Portland when I return to the Benson. Rooms are comfortable and well-kept. The staff is extremely friendly and seem truly happy to work there. And the location is unbeatable, making the Pearl and all of downtown easily accessible....

Very nice stay and great location for business conferences, very clean hotel, pleasant staff (front desk, and food services) all-around 5-star stay. Restaurant hours were open to support late and early hours which is nice when travelling on business. Meeting rooms have very good acoustics for large groups.
