    Great place to stay in downtown Portland!

    Hotel was in a great location; we only used the car once during our trip. The bed was super comfortable, and staff were friendly.

    2/5

    I was really excited when booking this 4-star historical hotel, but was overall disappointed and I won't stay here again. While the lobby and meeting areas are beautiful, the rooms are boring gray minimalist modern with almost no decor and no furniture. Bathroom has no towel racks and the faucet was so short the water barely pours into the sink, making it impossible to fit your hands under it and not get water all over the counter. Our shower drain was also clogged. Hardly any amenities- no pool, hot tub, or spa, yet they charge an expensive amenities fee... for the coffee and wifi??. I've had better rooms with better amenities at 2 and 3 star hotels. Menu at The Palm Court was too limited and service was poor. If you are thinking about staying at The Benson, I would recommend just walking around the lobby for 3 minutes and get a room somewhere else.
