Room and Staff were excellent! I would highly recommend the Sentinel for a short or long stay. Very comfortable beds and the view from the terrace suites is fantastic! Jakes restaurant is a great on site place to eat!

Everything about my experience was impeccable. From the valet, to check-in to the room itself, my stay was perfect. Amazing service. Amazing room with a fabulous view of Mt. Hood, and partials of Mt. Adams and Mt. St. Helens. Gorgeous roof-top deck that had plenty of room for 4. The decor was lovely, everything was clean and absolutely comfortable. I... More

Beautiful hotel with outstanding customer service. Excellent location and professional staff. When we had a minor issue, the Hotel Manager jumped in and immediately resolved the issue - with the utmost professionalism. We will be back in Portland and will make The Sentinel our home away from home.

Nice Hotel, very friendly help. Watch the room location. At that price you should have a view outside not at a building 15 feet away. Shower head was a handicap version and was loose and slid all over and would not hold a position. The bathroom door was out of alignment and therefore would not close. Again, at the price... More

All of the staff were very friendly, courteous and efficient. The room was fabulous and very spacious. Superb views from the balcony. Jakes grill had great breakfasts and one of the best burgers I have ever tasted.

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

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
