This 14-story hotel with brick siding dates to 1913 in downtown Portland, featuring premium century-old elements like Italian marble, Austrian crystal chandeliers, and Russian walnut. Each room contains flowing drapes, a flat-screen TV, and complimentary bamboo robe; but only the Grand Suite has a baby grand piano, and only the Presidential Suite has hosted every President since William Howard Taft. The Benson has two on-site restaurants. The casual, banquette-lined Palm Court has a breakfast buffet, lunch, and dinner. El Gaucho, an on-site Argentinean steakhouse with shocking blue walls, is dinner only.

Room to Book:

Ask to face Broadway on the northeast or southeast corners for optimal views of downtown action.

Insider Tip:

In warmer weather, rent a bike at nearby Pedal Bike Tours & Bicycle Rental to easily navigate downtown, the waterfront, and surrounding Portland neighborhoods.
