Description: A grand and historic Portland building, the Benson has been the hotel of choice for visiting US presidents and other dignitaries since 1912, when it was built. Its builder, lumber baron Simon Benson, spared no expense, importing rare Circassian walnut paneling, Austrian crystal chandeliers, and Italian marble to adorn this beautiful hotel. This commitment to superior quality remains, and the Benson’s simple but exquisite furnishings and service offer a fine balance of warmth and elegance. The 287 guest rooms and suites are spacious, amply furnished in a traditional style with pleasing modern touches. Amenities include complimentary high-speed wireless, access to the fitness center, and umbrellas in every room. You can also request TempurPedic Sleep System mattresses. The Grand Suite features a baby grand piano, a fireplace, and a Jacuzzi, and penthouse suites offer delightful views of the city around you. The Benson’s London Grill restaurant has been a Portland favorite for generations. Its downtown location is convenient to galleries, theaters, restaurants, and shopping, and the convention center is a short MAX ride away. Even if you don’t stay here, drop by the lobby bar for a drink.
