We stayed here for one night, the hotel is in a great location within walking distance to the Pearl District. Customer service was excellent from valet to check in to check out. Rooms are quaint and full of personality and the king bed was uber comfy! Starbucks coffee is adjacent to lobby for a quick pick me up and don't... More

The entire staff exceptionally friendly and helpful from front desk, valet, to room service. Corner king a nice room, very clean. Dinner at Jakes very nice. We were in Portland to see a Doctor, so combined the trip to celebrate a birthday.

Nice hotel, good downtown location, parking $39 per night (yikes), no pool or hot tub. Great service and nice people. Easy access to the MAX (light rail). I would stay there again. Lots of Homeless people everywhere downtown, none really bother you.

From the time we arrived until we departed, we enjoyed staying in the Sentinel. We stayed on the 6th floor with a view of Washington Park and an old stone church outside our window. Lovely deluxe room for reasonable price. We could look down into the streets and see what people were wearing, have breakfast downstairs or walk to a... More

We booked the Sentinel for a last-minute weekend trip based on TA reviews and reasonable price for a suite, and overall were pleased. The location is quite central, with CityTarget and some PDX food pods across the street, right between the street car lines for transportation. A nice ~15 min walk to the Saturday Farmer's Market at Portland State, and... More

Elegant, comfortable and a great experience so worth the price. Staff was wonderful. Great location and too much good food for one trip! You can walk to do anything you feel like doing and then come back to a beautiful place to relax and rest.

Stayed 2 nights as a getaway from Seattle. It's a hip, modern, but luxurious boutique hotel. Helpful and friendly staff, comfortable room, 24 hr room service, and great walking location by food carts.
