Thank you for your review. One definite perk of The Benson Hotel is that we are centrally located in downtown Portland, within walking distance to various attractions and shopping. Thanks again for choosing the Benson Hotel.

Reviewed 5 February 2017

The Benson has a beautiful, historic main area. The reception was friendly and easy. The room was clean and comfortable, upgraded, yet keeping some of the historic charm. It is a good value for your money.

Within walking distance of lots of downtown activities. And the public transportation is easy. Walked to Voodoo donuts! The hotel restaurant was excellent. Competitively priced. They had wine tasting for guests in the lobby. The lobby is reminiscent of the logging era in the region....More

The Benson is an excellent hotel and particularly suited to our style of protest. We had a great experience for the Women's March for Equality on Jan. 21, 2017. Sleep well, have breakfast, march, then have lunch in style. Who could ask for more?

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.
