My husband and I spent three nights in Portland in the Benson Hotel. We got a shuttle directly to the door of the hotel from the airport. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is beautiful, all wood and large rooms. HoteLs aren't made like this one any more. The Benson is very centrally located, so if you choose not to have a car, as we did (parking is limited in Portland), public transportation is very close and many places are within easy walking distance.
We asked the concierge for a dinner place and were referred to Jake's Grill. When we got there we were given a window table and an appetizer courtesy of our concierge! A nice surprise! We also ate at the steakhouse attached to the hotel, El Gaucho, which was lovely and very fancy. We ordered Bananas Foster for dessert. Yummy!
We ate breakfast all three mornings at the hotel and had good service and good food. Delicious thick bacon!
Definitely plan to stay here while in Portland. You will enjoy your time!
