Very nice room except for limited clothing storage. Plenty of space and well appointed. Too bad the gas fireplace was not functional. The overall facility was very warm and comfortable. The staff and service were all exceptional! I would say perfect for my taste. Excellent location for enjoying downtown Portland.

The room was absolutely beautiful and I used the built in desk both nights we stayed there. The room and all the common areas were clean and new looking. The conference rooms and ballroom part of the facility was amazing. What craftsman like workmanship in the beautiful ceilings and walls and excellent upkeep and maintenance to have the paint so...

Great staff, great location, great room. Feels like you're at a friend's place and they've got a great extra room for you. The staff really goes the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need. I wish they had other Sentinel hotels in every city I go to. :)

It was a great place to stay and I'll be back. I think I found a new hotel in downtown Portland. The rooms and the food were great. The hotel is strategically located. The conference rooms were perfect for our meetings.

Awesome hotel. I got a neck ache admiring all of the detailed carvings and ceilings. Beautiful. Room was top notch, comfortable, quiet. The shower water was even a consistent temp. The grand ballroom, where our company party was beautiful, food was excellent.

The newly remodeled hotel is tasteful and comfortable. HIGHLY recommend for many reasons. P.S. The staff was friendly and helpful as... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sentinel for our 19th wedding anniversary. It was the best place we've stayed in downtown Portland--Far surpasses The Heathman in my opinion. The night of our arrival I called the hotel and told the staff it was our anniversary and asked of they could up grade our room to a king because I... More
