Fantastic historic hotel with a great downtown location. I've stayed at this property many times throughout the years and it only gets better. New improvements and upgrades only enhanced our enjoyment.

Outstanding place to stay with beautiful rooms. Excellent location. Staff is knowledgeable and very responsive. Best weight room I have ever seen. My room was one of the most tastefuly furnished rooms I have ever stayed in and seemed as if Ralph Lauren had furnished it.

Traveled to Portland on a business trip with my two teenage daughters in tow. We took advantage of the Parlor Suite special to allow us to have a large room for our stay. The room was clean and quiet, and the location was great, near both the Streetcar and Max line. Oh, and shopping, too!

Sounds like you had a great trip! Glad you and your family got an opportunity to explore Portland. Sentinel's proximity to both the streetcars as well as MAX light-rail make getting around easy and convenient. Looking forward to your next visit, Best Regards, Bethanie Peterson Assistant Office Manager More

We stayed for 2 nights and had a good time. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location is convenient. Our room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but this is a historic hotel and well renovated and we would stay here again when come to Portland.

The Sentinel has a great location and you can walk all over town to many great restaurants and shops. I really enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and thought my room was nicely-appointed and very comfortable. I felt it was a home away from home and looked forward to getting back there at the end of a day full of... More

This hotel has exhibited what customer service can do to rectify a tough situation. We reserved our room about 3 months prior to our visit for my girlfriend's birthday. Between that and the date of our visit, we found out that we are pregnant and we got married the week before our visit. I emailed the hotel about 2 weeks... More

From valet to checking in, very smooth and easy process. Once we got to our top floor room, we were in awe, it was beautifully decorated and cleaned. The room lacked views out to the Town but had high windows that brought in plenty of light as well as skylights above the bed. The room was spacious and well laid... More
