    The Benson Hotel did everything right for our wedding! My husband and I got married August 4 2018 and the staff at the Benson hotel made it easy and stress free for us. We had constant communication with their event/wedding coordinate starting 1 year before our wedding, all the way through the day of. The venue's accommodations were excellent, they even gave us our own personal server during our reception :) Also, the food was amazing! This one was a big deal and we were worried that with larger groups it would be hard to make the food taste great, but it was just like our tasting. Would highly recommend the Benson hotel for their great service.

    Our wedding at the Benson was wonderful! The Crystal Ballroom is so elegant and the Mayfair Ballroom is a great place to party. All of our guests gave compliments on the food after the wedding. Janet was so helpful in the planning process and was there most of the evening to make sure our timing stayed on point. We really liked how many things were included in the pricing, it was such a great value. To top it all off we got a free suite in the hotel which was nice to end the evening by just taking the elevator upstairs!

    I recently had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at The Benson Hotel for Powers Studios. The staff was a pleasure to work with. Big thanks to their Director Janet for all of her help! And the catering was very good, I had the steak and a yummy Crème brûlée. The hotel and downtown itself make a beautiful backdrop, as well as the Crystal Ballroom with its amazing ceiling.
