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!

This hotel is amazing! We had an amazing room with a great view on the 6th floor. The room was always to it cleanest and every little detail was planned to perfection. All the entire staff is extremely nice and will do anything for their guests which is a great value!

Room was very nice but very small with no view.( we had the regular one queen bed room) . We got a discount on the room as we were there for a wedding and reception that was held at the hotel. Even with the wedding discount the rate was pricey( $259.00) but it escalated more by the valet parking fee... More

It reminded me of old style hotels, with charm oozing from the decor. It was a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The staff were pleasant and accommodating. The service was wonderful. Well located in the center of town and close to public transportation. The only draw back was the single (and very slow) elevator in the rear.
