Great location and old school charm but cold showers on multiple days of my stay. Loud street sounds and the heating didn't work. Bed and pillows were uncomfortable/worn. Good food truck park about 4 blocks away and happy happy hours at the hotel and neighboring restaurants for drink and food.

I've stayed at the Benson many times over the years, and was happy to see that the upgrades to the rooms only add to the experience. It's a comfortable hotel--great beds, really friendly and accommodating staff (especially the wait staff in the bar area). The staff really wants to help. The location allows for easy walks to the art museum...

I stay here whenever I visit Portland and have always enjoyed it very much. The service has always been top notch. Front desk people are warm and friendly, the room service staff is efficient and professional. I get the feeling that the people here enjoy their jobs, which is always a good sign. The rooms have a very vintage feel...

I'm really picky when it comes to beds, but I got to tell you that I fell right to sleep. The shower was out of this world, and the big head really let the water out. The location is great, since the hotel is near everything.

The workout room was small with only two treadmills and 2 ellipticals but I was always the only one in the workout room so it wasn't a problem. My room had a newly remodeled bathroom, new...

I was extremely please with The Benaon Hotel. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and very comfy. The hotel is walking distance to pretty much everything. We only used our rental car to drive to hiking trails and the airport.

The location and the extra large bed was the highlight of this hotel. The staff seemed friendly and I didn't even notice the construction from my room, but the hotel is pricey and has a 1930's dark atmosphere. It is busy too

I had the good fortune of staying at the Benson twice in a month. Both times, the service was fantastic, and very attentive. I felt pampered and satisfied. My room choice (two double beds) was unable to be honored the second visit, but they put me in a larger room with a rollaway. The room was beautifully appointed and newly...

Great stay. Room was comfortable as usual. Staff were nice. The building is close to good restaurants and attractions. I usually travel to Portland every other month and stay here often. I would stay here again.
