    The Benson is a great place to relax and enjoy good food, good music, and good company. We loved being able to access great restaurants and shopping in very easy walking distance. I like the location and the facility, I stayed this time because of the special price.

    We enjoyed our stay immensely. The staff was friendly, couteous and knowledgable. The hotel was warm and luxurious; the lobby and bar area are classically designed and decorated. Although, we only had one meal there(last breakfast), it was a real winner. Our waiter was warm, friendly and knowlegable and our food was delicious. I had the French toast made with brioche. My wife had the oatmeal, which she thoroughly enjoyed. We felt the prices were very reasonable, given the level of service and the quality of the food.

    Originally opened as a hotel in 1913 this space, very much, provides the historic building atmosphere. I enjoy historic buildings and this contributed to my stay in this hotel, along with excellent customer service and a general feeling of welcome and comfort. I found the employees to be extra ordinarilly friendly and helpful. I would stay in this hotel time and time again.

    Very good

    The lobby is beautiful and the location is perfect. The staff was average at best. Some staff were friendly and others would look almost look through you. I was very surprised and will not stay at The Benson again.
