I could not have been happier with the Benson. First of all, the location is ideal - walking distance to all the tourist areas: the waterfront, the old town, pearl district, shops, galleries, restaurants, strip clubs - you name it, the city is at your feet.
The hotel itself is extremely elegant, with a grand lobby and impeccable service. Our room was very nice - nothing special, but on par with other 100 year old, grand hotels.
We got a very reasonable price through expedia and could not have been happier.
I was especially delighted that the El Gaucho steakhouse was downstairs. Aside from live jazz, a beautiful decor, and allegedly excellent steak, it has a cigar lounge. I could have lived there.
