We totally enjoyed our stay at the Sentinel Hotel in Portland, OR. We had a high ceilinged, spacious room with enough room to put out both suitcases. There was a huge bathroom with lots of room to put out your toiletries. We enjoyed the restaurant on the first floor as well as the Starbucks connected with the hotel. I especially... More

A/C failed due to lack of freon in system -- too hot to sleep well. Fixed in A.M. Everything else was first class - front desk, bellhops, valets, restaurant and lovely old architecture. Room was well appointed and charming.

Loved the décor and architecture of this hotel. But the rooms are tiny - smaller than European rooms. That wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that the rooms are overloaded with furniture. Even the bath had what I'm really sure was a cocktail cart parked on foot in front of the toilet. One foot. There was a fantastic... More

Enjoyable and relaxing stay. A window and more lift would have been nice. Great location. Your review is too demanding and stringent this is not a thesis. I was happy until I flunked filling this survey out. Thank you.

From theRitz-Carlton in ny to the Fairmont on nob hill in San Francisco to many more grand old dames of hotels in the USA, our Sentinel had by far the best of what really matters: food company, good food, and a damn good bed

Gorgeous hotel. Excellent service. Slow elevators, dim meeting and lodging rooms. Loved the staff. Dinner at jake's was excellent. Did not have a chance to drink or dine at jackknife, but it was hopping!

Have stayed at this hotel many times, but not since it became the Sentinel. Had an amazing stay, BEAUTIFUL decor, tastefully done, incredible attention to detail. LOVED the bed and linens. I usually hate hotel pillows and loved yours. Jake's, as always, was exceptional in terms of service, quality, and presentation of food. Only drawback, price of valet parking!

We had only 1 night to stay in Portland and the Sentinel was perfect. It is located within walking distance of everything fun in Portland. The room was very nice and the hotel staff very courteous. Use the public parking next door to the hotel and avoid expensive valet.

The Hotel was beautiful even with the age of the building. Wonderful job on keeping it up to date. Everything was clean, hallways were well lit and carpets clean (had a terrible experience at a Las Vegas hotel). Staff was great from Valet to check in, to dining room service. All was 5 star service . The room was a... More
