“Imposing heritage hotel in bustling downtown Portland inspired by European grandeur. Interiors are classic and inviting with a neutral palette of chocolate and cream, wood trim and glass accents. Mouth-watering restaurants serve steaks and lighter meals. Fitness centre, business centre. ”

Hotel Review

This grand hotel recently celebrated its centenary (founded 1913), cementing its status as one of the most dignified locations in Portland. And with its combination of continental charm and careful attention that all modern amenities are in place, it seems likely that it will remain at the top of its game for at least another century to come. Boasting Tempur-Pedic luxury beds, flat-screen televisions, bamboo-fibre bathrobes and down duvet bedding, even the most modest rooms at The Benson are all geared toward comfort and wellness. Guests seeking a more luxurious experience might also want to consider the top-floor Penthouse suite with its unmatched views of downtown Portland or the palatial 800 square foot Presidential Suite with its private hot tub and fireplace. Dining at The Benson is never boring, with three separate on-site dining options as well as excellent room service for those looking for a quiet night in. El Gaucho is an award-winning steakhouse and cigar room, delivering a fine dining experience in a nostalgic atmosphere. The Benson’s Palm Court dishes up casual elegance in a cosy lounge and if you are looking for something more intimate, you can arrange for private dining at the London Grill. The Benson is located just a 15-minute walk (10 minutes by streetcar) from Portland's much-loved Pearl District, a former industrial area which has become a trendy hot-spot for artists and entrepreneurs and now offers a wealth of fine cafes, restaurants and galleries. The hotel is also a mere 10-minute walk from Old Town-Chinatown and the Willamette River waterfront.
