The Benson, a Coast Hotel

Explore all Portland has to offer from one of the city’s most treasured historic landmarks. Founded in 1913, The Benson features elegant European design with a host of modern amenities. See why U.S. Presidents and CEOs have made our downtown Portland hotel their home away from home for a hundred years—and why The Oregonian voted us Best Portland Hotel in 2012.

Our superb location puts you within walking distance to all of the shopping, dining, and entertainment of the Pearl District, Pioneer Square, and downtown. Famous boutiques, bookstores, breweries, and performing arts are just steps away.

While retaining their luxurious Continental feel, our rooms were refreshed in 2017 to capture the perfect blend of aesthetics and comfort.

Our exceptionally friendly, service-oriented staff is one of the reasons you’ll find so many four-star reviews on our property. Looking for some hints on where to go or what to do during your stay in our hotel in Portland? Let’s chat.

The Benson features two of the most beautiful ballrooms in all of Portland—perfect for weddings, conferences and other events. We also have a range of meeting and private dining rooms to fit your needs. Our catering and events staff are always available to lend their expertise and help you create the perfect gathering that will be remembered by all your guests and attendees.
