Quaint hotel close to all amenities in downtown Portland. Walking distance to everything you need. Service was excellent and people were very responsive. First time visit to Portland for business and the stay was very convenient and very comfortable for what I needed.

My husband and I are taking a no plans vacation and we came upon the Sentinel. The building is beautiful and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have a bar Starbucks and a restraunt in the same building, it located close (walking distance) to shopping and pubs. This was a great way to start our trip.

Service was fantastic, staff were all great. The check-in agents acted as concierge and that was just fine. The only quibble we had: we were stuck in a dark room that looked out into a very narrow alley - so to open the curtains was to a view of a brick wall and the neighbours. Not so bad because we...

I stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago, before it was renovated, and the only reason I came back was that its location worked for my schedule. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that in addition to changing the name, the Hotel has remodeled its public area and guest rooms beautifully. The rooms are a well designed... More

I've been coming here for years (before the name change) and it's stayed the same good feel, high value place to stay throughout all that time.

The Hotel is very well decorated. The ceiling of the lobby is absolutely gorgeous. The Rooms are spacious, clean an with a beautiful view.. The location is in downtown which makes every place, park and Historic buildings very accessible by walking.

The room was excellent until you used the bathroom. The TP was nearly impossible to reach, wasted space where needed additional shelves should have been located, inadequate hanger hooks and lastly a Motel 6 type bath tub with substandard water pressure.

Super nice service. The room was small but cozy, with more character than most. Older and charming overall. Loved Jakes restaurant and the two bars. Fantastic location Dow town right next to a Smart Park.
