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. Our 287 guest rooms include 47 junior suites, seven penthouse suites, and two Presidential Suites, all of which unite the charm and civility of the old world with the elegance of contemporary design. Amenities are abundant, with a state-of-the-art fitness center, 24-hour Business Center, two award-winning restaurants, and a historic lobby bar.
The Benson now offers more than 13,000 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.
