I stayed at the Sentinel for business travel and greatly enjoyed it. The only suggestion I have is for them to have office desk chairs in the rooms with desk in them to give business travelers a better experience.

Friendly and professional staff. Warm and welcoming decor that makes business travel much more tolerable. Well equipped and spacious gym. Amazingly comfortable bed. I caught myself many times thinking I was in Europe rather than Portland, OR. Conveniently located near an excellent selectuon of restairants and bars. Overall, the Sentinel provides an excellent travel experience.

My husband and I were in Portland for a job interview. The company interviewing my husband booked us into The Sentinel for 3 nights. I have to agree with several other reviewers that the location is great for getting around the city. The bathrooms do lack counter space as noted. The room was very clean, and housekeeping did a wonderful... More

Location was excellent. Close to Powell's, not too far from the inner city and right next to the beautiful reinvigorated Pearl district. The room was delightfully decorated and always clean, although i would have preferred the bath to be a bit more roomy and the shower being an actual shower cabin and not a bathtub with a shower curtain. Otherwise... More

The Sentinel is a nice historic hotel, convenient to everything in downtown Portland. For the price point, I would have expected nicer linens and towels. The bathroom had no shelf or surface to put stuff, which was annoying. The staff was very friendly. The bell service was superior - absolutely great guys with tons of helpful information. We had noise... More

My two friends and I stayed at the Sentinel for 3 nights this past week. For me, it was my first time in this great town. The hotel is really well located and you can walk to a lot of places. Though I would usually love that there is a great Starbucks inside my hotel, if you are in Portland... More

Our room was fabulous, the balcony overlooking the city, splendid views at night. It was very relaxing, enjoying the outdoor fireplace and so romantic. The room was super clean and the bed felt like it was brand new. The staff was overall courteous and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

Sophisticated hotel in the heart of Portland with a great restaurant (Jake's Grill) and the hotel bar is very upscale and nice. You can walk to everything. Food trucks to Nordstrom to river. No need to rent a car. Great Staff! Very impressed. Rooms are elegant and the beds are so comfortable! I will be back for sure!
