The Benson is an older hotel with a magnificent lobby. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. My room was small, and I found the bathroom to be awkwardly small, but I am sure larger rooms are available. WiFi is free.

Nice hotel, small rooms.
Nice place. Like many old hotels, the rooms and bathrooms are smaller than modern hotels. The bar is not terribly lively.

Portland 2 night stay
We stayed at The Benson on the last leg of our coastal trip. Great downtown location and a short walk to everything! Our room was the perfect size for 2! Cozy king bed and loved the view from our northwest corner window. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We loved listening to the jazz and sipping on wine in the evenings. Perfect end to a great vacation in a beautiful historic hotel.

Good6.0
Benson - nice lobby could improve in other places.
Beautiful lobby but there were several protesters standing outside of the entrance and the entire lobby was filled with them. I asked the front desk about it and they said they did not know. Also, the elevator (although functioning) was being repaired so all the buttons for them were standing on a device in the hallways. The sound of the transit system was too loud as their windows appear not to be insulated like other hotels in the area. Also, there is no bottled water in the room except for the very first day. I do appreciate the turndown service and tipped housekeeping accordingly. Would appreciate a higher level of sophistication and service for this establishment. Front desk attendant at check out was not friendly, especially when I asked for a folio.
