The Benson

309 SW Broadway
Portland , OR , United States http://www.bensonhotel.com/
(503) 228-2000

This 14-story hotel with brick siding dates to 1913 in downtown Portland, featuring premium century-old elements like Italian marble, Austrian crystal chandeliers, and Russian walnut. Each room contains flowing drapes, a flat-screen TV, and complimentary bamboo robe; but only the Grand Suite has a baby grand piano, and only the Presidential Suite has hosted every President since William Howard Taft. The Benson has two on-site restaurants. The casual, banquette-lined Palm Court has a breakfast buffet, lunch, and dinner. El Gaucho, an on-site Argentinean steakhouse with shocking blue walls, is dinner only.
