The Benson, a Coast Hotel – Portland

Downtown Portland’s Historic Hotel offering timeless, affordable elegance.

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

Boutiques, bookstores, breweries, and performing arts are just steps away. Looking for some hints on where to go or what to do in Portland? Consult with our Gold Key concierge staff.
