Outstanding overnight trip to Portland

Seattle, Washington

Family took a mid-week, overnight trip to Portland. We always stay at the Benson, and each time is better than the last. This trip was no exception -- we ended up in a great room with views of the city ... almost didn't want to leave in the morning. Breakfast in the lobby was great, as always, and the hotel staff treated all of us (including my 5 year old son) with patience and kindness. All of this just reiterated our prejudice in favor of the Benson as our hotel of choice in Portland, and we'll definitely be back!

Loved our stay

Chicago, Illinois

Did a lot of research on tripadvisor and chose this well priced but wonderful hotel! The bones of this hotel is just amazing. Marble bathrooms, solid fixtures throughout. I believe the hotel went through a recent renovation, our room was modern and very clean. The lobby is grand and beautiful. The location is super close of so many great coffee shops, restaurants, shopping, sites! The daily resort fee includes morning starbucks coffee, afternoon beer/wine tasting, appetizers from the bar downstairs, access to their gym or you can get a daily pass to the 24 hr fitness about 0.5 miles away (which I did, great gym). What really stood out was the service. Very attentive, very accomodating. We specifically had a great experience with Bre at the front desk. We traveled with 2 young kids and they also loved the hotel. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Close by spots of note: Courier coffee 2 blocks away was my fav spot, excellent muffins and canales every morning. Serious pie for a late night NY style pizza one night was great. Also random was wailea shaved ice, amazing shaved ice just a few blocks away. Very close of the popular Nongs and Blue Star donuts. A note about parking. Valet at the hotel is very pricey. There is a US bank lot across the street that is $25 overnight. What we did that was the cheapest was park on the street overnight (free 8p-8a) and park in the US bank lot during the day, its $15 for the day time hours.
