Stay here all the time. Everything about it is first class except…the lobby bar was shut for renovations until October. Why doesn’t the website disclose this? Why did I not find out until I had already checked in?!!

Hi Robert, Thank you for your recent stay at The Benson Hotel and for providing your 5 star rating. I am sorry you were unaware of our restaurant renovations. We work diligently to update our third part partners but cannot control what is listed on their site. Our website's page for dining does disclose our restaurant is still closed at this time. We hope this does not stop you from returning to the Benson Hotel. It was our pleasure to have you as our guest and we look forward to seeing you again here at The Benson!

Thank you for providing a wonderful review and feedback. You’ll find basically all of the downtown boutique hotels charge an amenity fee, yet our amenity offering prevails. Even with the amenity fee The Benson is viewed as a great value by the majority of guests. On average our rates are $30–50 less than competing national brand hotels. This is the same for our parking charges. Nevertheless, we appreciate your input and I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about the amenity fee. If you have a moment to visit, please feel free to contact me directly at the hotel office at your convenience. Again, thank you for your comments and we look forward to your return visit.

I love the place and will come back. But I miss the dining room and wish the food in the lobby had more variety and varied - it's just the same as last time.
