Perfect for our Wedding Night!
From the fruit and cheese plate that was waiting for us in our room, to the attentive room service, to the extremely luxurious bed, everything about our stay was absolutely brilliant! The only thing I would change would be to better soundproof the bathroom. Other than that, nothing could have made our wedding night better!

Amazing hotel and amazing service
Our stay at The Benson was outstanding! Every staff member we encountered was personable and seemed 100% committed to meeting every need. When we checked in we were given a free upgrade to a junior suite and offered free valet parking for our vehicle. Just the free parking saved us $40 a day. It is very unusual to get free parking in Portland. The hotel was centrally located with so many activities, restaurants and nightlife within easy walking distance. Oh and the beds are so comfortable! Tempurpedic mattresses and wonderful linens. I could have just hung out in my bed and been so happy. This is now a favorite and I will definitely be going back.
