Very Good8.0
Classic hotel
Hotel was very nice. Free valet parking, short walk from main shopping area and the river. Easy walk to voodoo donuts, a must. There are a few homeless people, but this was not an issue

Quick trip, but worth it!
I have always loved The Benson, so we were thrilled to stay! We just wish we had a few more days to stay!

The Benson, a Coast Hotel
Great location in Portland! We came up to Oregon to check out colleges for our daughter and were able to use the Benson as our home base to check out 6 colleges in the area! We came in late on Friday and it was a long drive up from California, we asked the staff where we could go to grab dinner and the staff had many great ideas. We ended up walking to The Original which was perfect! Would totally stay here again.
