This is an excellent hotel with great service. The location is great, easy walk to many restaurants and activities - there is a vodoo donut right around the corner. The decor and cleanliness is excellent.

With both AC in the entire hotel and ice machine on our floor out of service during a heatwaved weekend and had to open the windows and hear loud cars and motorcyles and people till midnight even with the fan provided is unbearable. The hotel is very nice and so are rhe staff. Would've been nice if they have a pool buf they dont. Lot's of history in this old hotel and it's in downtown and close to everything. They did wave the resort fee and gave us $10 food credit daily but both the bar and restaurant is closed and discount on valet parking but we didn't have a car and also provided 2 grab and go breakfast per room even though there's 3 of us. Disappointed? Yes and probably will never stay there again even if everything is working. Historic and centralized is not enough for me to stay there again. I wouldn't recommend this hotel but the doorman that greet us and porter that brought up our heavy luggages to our room and the bartender that gave us the 2 free drinks nightly is the only highlight of this hotel.

The Benson is still a classic old hotel. They have taken the Covid challenges seriously. However, they could and should do better honoring their past: take away breakfast should include great pastries. Coffee in the lobby should include read 1/2 and 1/2. Rooms should have refrigerators. That said, the staff were wonderful and helpful where they could be.

The hotel is lovely and in a great location. With the extreme hot weather their air conditioning was broken throughout the hotel. We were provided a fan which did the trick. The staff were very accommodating and did everything they could to make the situation better. We had a really great stay.
