Great pet friendly option in Portland when the Hotel Monaco rates are high. This is in an old building with charm and class. Walking distance to downtown attractions.

    A condensed version of Target, with groceries and limited selection of necessities. A little bit of everything here. It is three stories, with the actual store on floors 2 and 3. Stop here for bargain prices or to visit the in-store Starbucks.

    Coming of the White Man Statue

    0.15 mi from Benson Hotel
    1 review

    The Coming of the White Man Statue is located in Washington Park and is a short walk from the Oregon Holocaust Memorial. It depicts two Native American men, including Chief Multnomah, looking towards the Columbia River upon the arrival of Lewis and Clark. This is all a bit politically incorrect, and maybe being a little out of the way helps ...

    But where are the Roses? I was southbound on the #72 bus, after transferring from the Max Red Line at the NE 82nd Ave Station. And when I saw the sign for the "Hung Far Low" Chinese restaurant, it was time to get off at Division and transfer to the #4 bus. After this experience, I take it all back ...

    Multnomah Falls

    0.72 mi from Benson Hotel
    71 reviews

    I'm quite the acrophobe but Multnomah is nothing extreme and plenty fun. The waterfall is beautiful and the bridge near the center is a classic place for the gorgeous view. It's a nice place for a short, populated hike and to get a bit of nature. I've been coming here since I was a kid, it's great for family hikes.

    Portland Saturday Market

    0.34 mi from Benson Hotel
    39 reviews

    Portland Saturday Market is always fun to explore on the weekends on the waterfront. You can find food, little trinkets, clothes, jewelry, and almost everything else. You'll see a lot of hipsters around but it's Portland, of course. It's a fun place to hang out and people-watch too! Things aren't always cheap, but it's fun to "window-shop."

    This is a MUST! This park is huge, beautiful and has everything! It has a beautiful international rose test garden (free), a Japanese garden (adult $9.50, children under 5 free), the oregon zoo (adults $10.50, children 2 and under free), the Children's museum (museum members free), paths galore, and although I don't remember off the top of my head, I ...

    Classical Chinese Garden

    0.37 mi from Benson Hotel
    9 reviews

    In downtown's Old Town and Chinatown historic district, this petite garden is a wonderful surprise. You might think from the semi-steep price of admission and the down-and-out streets nearby that this garden is isn't worth making time for. Wrong. Landscape architects from China came over expressly to build this garden from the ground up. It's even diverting for kids, with ...

    A fascinating urban gardens right in Old Town. Interesting to compare this with the Japanese Gardens as well. The recorded tour that comes with your admission is well worth using when you explore the gardens. There's also a lovely tea house in the gardens.

    I spent my time having farmers' market envy. Wished I had a kitchen and lots of people to cook for. Afraid the hotel wouldn't allow me to use their kitchen. Fresh artichokes, blackberries the size of a silver dollar, bushel baskets of basil, heirloom tomatoes, charentais melons, fresh salmon, chevre, local distillery spirits, local bread...

    Rose Garden Arena

    0.93 mi from Benson Hotel
    11 reviews

    Portland's giant arena is beautiful, well-designed, and makes every effort to maximize audience experience no matter what seats you can afford. Parking is convenient and cheap (relative to many California arenas, that is), and though the food is expensive, at least it's good. This is one of my favorite indoor places on the West Coast to see a major act.

    I haven't been here since they converted it to MLS but I think they made it even better. Best part is you can see live games through a fence by the sidewalk for free. Very intimate setting for any type of sporting event!

    I am actually not a super big fan of this bridge. While I like most of the bridges in Portland, this one is just very small. It also does not connect very important parts of Portland together.

    Last five hours in Portland after a busy work weekend. Had to revisit Pearl district and I really love the area. Filled with caf├ęs, shops, brick and cobblestone. So much charm to stroll through and the Portland wet cold somehow makes it all the more charming.

    Ahhh! Finally found it! I've tried to get to it a couple of times but always got side tracked until finally one day I looked up and there it was! Of course the Portlandia Statue is one of Portland's great tourist attractions. It not really all that much to see but regardless for Portland it really is a must see!
