Portland is a year-round destination city, so you can visit The Benson Hotel at any time. Even in the drizzly, gray days of January, you can enjoy world-class shopping or sit in one of the many coffeehouses sipping customized cappuccinos. Come summer, the options are endless. Guests of The Benson can bring their favorite four-legged friends (who, like their owners, also get Tempur-Pedic-style bedding) and head out during the day to explore the many city trails and hikes, stroll through the tree-lined Park Blocks or day-trip to the stunning Multnomah Falls, just an hour away.

As much as the Portland hotel offers its guests year-round, there’s nothing that can quite compete with the holiday season. Walk into the classic European-style lobby adorned with exquisite Austrian crystal chandeliers, the finest Italian marble and Circassian walnut wood from the imperial forests of Russia. During the holidays, you’re transported into a winter wonderland with boughs of fragrant garlands, twinkling lights, wrapped presents and a majestic lobby Christmas tree that only intensify the beauty of The Benson. On top of the decorative holiday elements, the luxury hotel features live music and its traditional gingerbread artistic masterpiece.
