We had a beautiful corner room with large deck and view - total surprise! We loved it. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The hotel has a hip feel, but so comfortable. They even have a dog room service menu!

We booked the Sentinel Hotel through hotel tonight.com and couldn't have been more pleased. We were offered an upgrade, which we took, and the room was enormous. I loved the classic styling mixed with the rock-n-roll artwork. The Lobby is beautiful and the Starbucks opens at 5:30am!!!!!! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We had a wonderful two night stay midweek at the Sentinel in February. It was my wife and my first trip to Portland. We booked it because of its central location in Portland and it's reasonable prices, especially with our AAA discount. The hotel has been newly-updated to make it feel modern although it still has nice architectural charm from... More

Recently stayed for work meeting nearby. Loved every bit of it. My favorite hotel in Portland now. Will stay again and have already told friends about it. Nice people working there, cool decor, loved it. Usually stay at Benson or Nines, but I liked the Sentinel even better.

Everything you love about Portland! Great hotel with friendly staff and wonderful comforts with tons of personality. I had the serenade of a sax player somewhere on the street below me as I entered my room, I could leave my windows open and pretend Portland was playing for me :)

My husband and I had a kid free night and stayed downtown. Neither of us had stayed at the Sentinel since the remodel and we LOVED it. The rooms are great, they are quite, the service is stellar and the room service food is from Jake's. If you haven't stayed already, DO IT.

The room was beautifully furnished, great bed and staff were terrific about providing hypoallergenic pillows. The hotel is old but fully refurnished. It's in a wonderful location, and we managed to find parking at 1/3 the price of valet.

I did not get a room that matched the Premier King from the pictures on their website. After checking in and going up to my room, I went back down to lobby and he assured me it was the Premier King I booked. Either the person who checked me in lied or the hotel's website is deceptive.

I was given a free upgrade as customer of the day. Very nice room. Very nice and great staff! The conference space is amazing. The library room is by far my favorite and the rennasaince room is a must see.
