“A terrific hotel experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a great boutique hotel. The design is a combination of historic modern luxury. My corner king room had an amazing fireplace, nice bathroom and the most comfortable hotel bed ever. The restaurant is good, but they're not quite ready to go when they open at 7am. The hotel bar doubles as a very popular night club. The location is great and very close the all of the food trucks downtown. The service was average or perhaps a bit above. I would absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Large corner room.

My wife and I were on our way to Seattle for our one year anniversary and we decided to stop in Portland for the night and made last minute reservation.

1.The wonderful experience started with the valet, the were very patient and helped us unload all the luggage while we took care of our dog.

2.The gentleman at the front desk was very accommodating and once we told him we were on our anniversary he upgraded our room to the top floor with a wonderful view. Answered any and all questions. They even sent up a doggy bed with bowls for food and water.

3 The room itself was very clean and tidy. Very comfortable bed with the softest sheets. The room service was pretty speedy as well with wonderfully tasting food!

All and all my wife and I think it might be the best experience we've had at a hotel. Everyone in the staff was more then willing to help with any and everything we needed.

I would most certainly recommend this hotel to anyone and we will definitely be staying here again!

Beautifully restored with spacious 5th floor room and lovely view facing west. Quiet, comfortable bed and great shower head. Public areas are well designed with amazing architectural preservation. Easy walk to restaurants in the Pearl District.

This hotel is the renovated version of the old Governor Hotel in Portland. Jake's restaurant has been integrated into the hotel, which was a nice touch. Everything about the hotel is first class, from staff to amenities, to the room.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. Superb location and a really lovely bar and restaurant.

The suite we had was decorated fabulously, but had a weird porthole between the lounge area and the bedroom which led to me disturbing my husband's lie-ins on a couple of occasions!

What a beautiful hotel. The service was wonderful. Everyone was extremely helpful with anything we needed. The rooms are a wonderful blend of vintage and modern which gives the hotel great character. You can get to Starbucks from the lobby (bonus!) and the hotel bar, JackKnife makes great cocktails. Would definitely stay here again.

Spent 3 days in Portland for a wedding and the Sentinel was our home base. Loved the vibe of the hotel, service was great and especially enjoyed Starbucks, The Jackknife Bar and Jakes Grill all right there!
