The Benson, a premiere downtown Portland hotel, has long catered to celebrities, leaders in business and industry, politicians and every U.S. president since William H. Taft. We have 287 tastefully appointed guest rooms, including 47 junior suites, seven penthouse suites and two grand suites. The décor varies from room to room, so frequent visitors to the hotel often have a particular favorite. Amenities are abundant, and include 24-hour room service, a fully stocked private honors bar, a state-of-the-art entertainment center and acclaimed Les Clefs d’Or concierge services.
The Benson now offers more than 18,000 square feet of meeting space, making it a favorite stop for business travelers. The handsome, wood-paneled, Regency Boardroom, located on the second floor, provides privacy and elegance for executive meetings. The lobby-level Crystal Ballroom, replete with gold leafing and crystal chandeliers, is where heads of state and international companies have held social functions. The opulent Mayfair Ballroom, on the mezzanine, features a stage area and provides the perfect setting for both theater-style presentations as well as formal banquets.
