The Benson, Portland

Contemporary Hotel


Short description

Tradition & opulence in the centre of trendy Portland


Recommended for:
City | Food & wine | History & culture

This historic hotel is just moments from Portland’s unique appeals and offers a luxurious start or end to your Oregon holiday.

Understated luxe is the order of the day, with neutral tones and stylish black-and-white art alongside luxury beds, flat-screen TVs and a turn-down service. Most opulent, though, are the Grand Suites, where French doors, stylish Italian furniture, crystal chandeliers and fireplaces lie alongside panoramic city views, walk-in showers in marble bathrooms and even wet bars.

Come evening, you’re truly spoilt for choice. The lobby’s Palm Court is all darkwood furnishings and chandeliers host to a delightfully varied menu, from burrata starters to gourmet burgers, and a nightly sipping hour that showcases the region's famous local and regional wines and craft beers. For a more refined evening, head to El Gaucho, for fresh seafood and excellent steaks alongside an extensive wine list and nightly live music. Then, the intimate sitting room and cigar lounge make a wonderful place for a post-dinner aperitif.

We highly recommend taking advantage of the knowledgable concierge service, who can help with everything from dinner reservations to tickets and transport for your day’s activities. And, you’re well placed to explore. For arts, nightlife and fashion, head to the Pearl District, whilst Nob Hill has plenty of boutique shops. You’re also just moments from the Rose Quarter, host to that all-American pastime of basketball as well as concerts and theatre performances. After days spent exploring, come back to the 24/7 fitness centre, nightly drinks and even, from Wednesday-Saturday, live jazz music at Palm Court, the longest continuously-running jazz venue in Portland.
