- Its restoration has made this hotel the classic jewel of downtown and the Pioneer Square neighborhood. Built in 1912 by lumber baron Simon Benson, the warmth of its woodwork and old charm take you back to another time. Local and national celebrities have stayed here. Sit in the lounge and keep your eyes out for a movie star, Portland Trailblazers basketball player or head of industry. While the property is considered expensive among locals, the service and luxury make it worth every penny.
