The Benson is in an excellent location to get around downtown Portland. The staff is outstanding. The bar in the lobby has the best waiters on the planet. Rooms clean, and quiet for being in the middle of downtown.

Reed College is out in the suburbs. There is a lovely park across the street with the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. You will certainly need some sort of transportation (Uber, rental car, public transit) to get there.
