“Pricey but lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

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.

Fantastic historic hotel with a great downtown location. I've stayed at this property many times throughout the years and it only gets better. New improvements and upgrades only enhanced our enjoyment.

Outstanding place to stay with beautiful rooms. Excellent location. Staff is knowledgeable and very responsive. Best weight room I have ever seen. My room was one of the most tastefuly furnished rooms I have ever stayed in and seemed as if Ralph Lauren had furnished it.

Traveled to Portland on a business trip with my two teenage daughters in tow. We took advantage of the Parlor Suite special to allow us to have a large room for our stay. The room was clean and quiet, and the location was great, near both the Streetcar and Max line. Oh, and shopping, too!

Sounds like you had a great trip! Glad you and your family got an opportunity to explore Portland. Sentinel's proximity to both the streetcars as well as MAX light-rail make getting around easy and convenient. Looking forward to your next visit, Best Regards, Bethanie Peterson Assistant Office Manager

From the greeting, to the room, to the food, all was fabulous. Rarely have I enjoyed a hotel stay as much as this one. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience all that Portland has to offer.

We stayed for 2 nights and had a good time. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location is convenient. Our room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but this is a historic hotel and well renovated and we would stay here again when come to Portland.
