3 night stay. Valet parking was smooth and effortless, although theres plenty of nearby parking for a fraction of the cost. Check in was quick and professional and we were quickly alerted of tourist items on the maps provided. Room overview was efficient and courteous. Our room was well appointed and had some neat quirks to it such as the... More

We look forward to our stay at the Sentinel whenever we travel through Portland. Everything about the hotel is perfect and the location is ideal for so much of what Portland has to offer the curious traveler.

Stayed at the Sentinel in downtown Portland a couple weekends ago. Staff was very friendly. The Hotel was cool and historic but with modern touches. Two cool bars especially Jacks. The bartenders and all the staff there were amazing. We actually stopped in every night of our trip. The lobby Starbucks was handy as well. The location was perfect and... More

Stayed at the Sentinel while in town for a concert. Loved both the fact that it was a historical hotel but still had a modern look and amenities. The value was good and hotel staff was very friendly. Starbucks located in the hotel was a huge plus for our morning coffee. Would definitely stay here again for future visits!

Old world beauty with all of the modern comforts. Friendly and helpful staff and professional valet parking. This is truly a fine luxury hotel, reasonably priced and comfortable. We will be staying there for our next Portland trip!

The entire Sentinel experience was wonderful. It was refreshing to feel so "at home" yet so far removed from all the stress of our daily lives. All the staff, from front desk to curbside, seemed knowledgeable and enlivened - as if they, too, enjoyed working there. Beds were very comfortable, decor - including art on our bedroom walls - was... More

Wonderful location. Near restaurants, parks, museums, food carts! Clean, comfortable hotel with an accommodating staff. Next door to the lobby is a Starbucks and Jake's restaurant. Both wonderful! We will be back.

I just stayed at the Sentinel this past weekend - it was such a great experience. The rooms are spacious even though it's a boutique hotel in an old building - with a ton of attention to detail. The accessories are unique and cute and the bed is super comfortable with amazing sheets. The staff is really helpful but in... More

A charming hotel in a great location with lovely service and terrific accommodations. The Sentinel has a hip but classic vibe, beautiful decor, and interesting history (ask about it). Traveler tip: Portland cabs don't hang out in the city, so if you need one, have the front desk arrange it in advance.
