The Benson is a grand, historic hotel centrally located in downtown Portland. Our room was very nice and the beds were comfortable. We only spent one night but will return again. Great service, valet parking and pleasant staff.

My wife brought me to Portland for my first time on my birthday. She's familiar with the area and knew the Benson. Great choice. Old formality and beauty. Room is very nice and well appointed. Have had a terrific time and I'll be back to Portland and the Benson again

We booked a great deal, free valet, and affordable rate on Expedia. We wanted to explore the hotel because it was featured as a somewhat haunted hotel in Portland, and it looked very luxurious, so we were glad to land a sweet deal. I was impressed by the super nice valet as we first pulled up, he helped with luggage...

I decided to stay at the Benson because the hotel I usually stay at did not have available rooms. Now I'm going to make the Benson my stay of choice. It was one block from the office building I go to, and I really like the old school, classic hotel style of the Benson. Yes, it is an older hotel...

Nicely renovated historic hotel. Nice size room with modern bathroom. Great customer service, returned lost item even after we had checked out. Nice lobby restaurant with limited but very tasty menu. About 30 minutes from airport downtown.

Decent older hotel in downtown Portland with comfortable rooms and a reasonable restaurant. Service (except for the elevators!) was good and staff very friendly. The location was very good--walking distance to shops, lots of restaurants and a food pod.

We were only spending one night here during a very snowy time, but it was a lovely. We stayed in a junior suite and it was roomy and so comfortable. We found everything about this historic hotel delightful. In addition, they had the sidewalk in front very clear of all snow, unlike many other blocks in the city. We were...

Spent a week at the Benson on a vacation trip to downtown Portland. Great location - within walking distance to many things. The Palm Court restaurant is good - nice French Onion Soup. The hotel itself is lovely, historic old school, charming but updated nicely. Very well appointed bathroom, large room with a very comfortable bed. We had a large...

This is a great historic building with beautiful furnishings and trim, lots of old original trim! The bed was very comfortable and the climate control was responsive and accurate. A wonderful staff, and a great downtown location. I highly recommend this hotel.

“Make sure there is creamer or half-half in the fridge. Also, a better selection of teas would be great for tea lovers, or at the very least, reception staff could ask at check in if there are any tea drinkers in the room and if they have a preference for tea instead of coffee in the morning. This would be a VERY simple but personal touch that I don't think would cost the hotel very much, and would go a long way to cement your service with tea drinkers.”
