Everything about the Sentinel is just right. The room was lovely and perfectly appointed, great area to work and relax. Very comfortable bed. The gym is one of the best hotel gyms I've been.. Even had cool lavender towels for post workout. Jakes food and wine selection was great. Service from all was perfect. You can tell the staff really... More

Wedding party stayed here. We had a comfortable room with very high quality linens and furnishings. Old crown moldings and doors retained even with new energy efficient windows. Only problem was that AC was not working so our room got very warm during the evening. Before we could figure out the problem we resorted to opening all the windows, just... More

We arrived around 6:30 pm and had a flight out the next morning early but this hotel left us wishing our flight was delayed a day so that we could have stayed and enjoyed and discovered it more! We shall return. . . . staff was professional and friendly, room was very well styled and accessorized.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff, given a room upgrade as requested and accommodated even though we arrived early. The room was elegant and romantic with extra space and fireplace. Awesome.

The folks behind the front desk were fantastic! They were very knowledgable, eager to assist and were a real pleasure to talk with. The hotel was clean, the service was great and Jake's was a nice restaurant. Of special note were the pictures on the walls in the hallways. They were great pictures and the information about them was a... More

Everyone I spoke with in our party was pleased and surprised by the beauty of the hotel and the gracious service from the well-trained staff. We dined as a group of twenty-plus two different times and everything was done very well. The food was delicious, too.

Great service and very nice room. Perfect location for a night on the town in Portland. Close to clubs and restaurants. The Sentinae is a beautiful Old PDX hotel - very classic. Take use of the pillow menu - it's amazing.

The Sentinel Hotel is a great place to stay in Portland. This was the old Governors Hotel and has been redone very nicely. The historic charm of the place is wonderful, dark wood in the lobby and attached Jakes place restaurant is beautiful. Our room was nice the bed comfortable, a quiet nights sleep was had even with the rain... More

No problems at all, nice hotel. I would suggest however, that if you need to, you should request specific non-down pillows. I had allergies to the pillows, and had to end up sleeping on the throw pillow stuffed with foam. Mind you, it was comfortable - but it was my own fault for not requesting a foam pillow from the...
