The Benson… Past Its Prime

X2238AXsharons (Alexandria, Virginia) on Apr 10, 2024

While I looked forward to staying at this historic venue, I experienced a number of issues. My bathroom flooded from the floor above rendering the room uninhabitable. Thankfully, the hotel staff quickly moved me to another room. Similar to other reviews on this property, there is an awful smell in the lobby and lower level. Whether it is mold or chemical toxins, it is awful. The staff try their best to assist guests, however, an old hotel equals a lot of maintenance issues.

Put it on your list - The Benson

Great location. Super friendly staff. Loved the atmosphere. Close to a lot amenities. The Palm Court inside the hotel is a decent hotel restaurant. Good quality at decent prices. Free (good) coffee in the morning is a bonus. Clarissa was super helpful at the front desk.

Great staff that love what they do!

The Hotel is located close by to walk everywhere needed. The food and staff are absolutely fantastic. Everyone is friendly from Harry in the front desk to Bobby in the restaurant. They are very knowledgeable about the area and they gave me great recommendations. I truly appreciate the hospitality they provided me and my partner on this trip.

Nice but not amazing

allyike2024 (Roseburg, Oregon) on Mar 28, 2024

Rooms are pretty small, no microwave. No hot water the first day we were there and no additional amenities offered. Would have been nice since we couldn't wash for 24 hours to be offered something in return.

Beautiful hotel

Val H on Mar 27, 2024

The hotel is beautiful and Bobby that waited on us in the restaurant was so nice and knowledgeable. Gave us so much information on places to go and see and eat and gave us so much history on the hotel. We will definitely be staying there again when we come back.
