A very nice hotel with all the amenities and an especially comfortable bed. Quiet except in the bar area which was hopping for the four nights we stayed at the hotel. It did not carry up to the sleeping rooms so it was not a problem. Nicely appointed and the historical touches are most interesting. The location of the Sentinel... More

I went to a medical conference here and would come back just to stay in the future. Great place and no downside and very comfortable and warm and clean surroundings. The food at the conference was very good and that is unusual for serving a large group.

It was my first visit to Portland. What a fun and cool city it is! People are friendly, and food is great everywhere. I'd love to go back, and when I do, I would be happy to stay at the Sentinel again. At the Sentinel, receptionists, porters, people at a restaurant and at a bar, everybody was friendly and helpful.... More

This was our first time staying at the Sentinel, though we have been to Portland numerous times, and it was fantastic. We had a wonderful corner king room which was beautifully appointed with huge windows and natural light. The location of the hotel is also outstanding, close to both downtown and the Pearl District. A great hotel.

Our short stay in this wonderful hotel was fabulous! Our corner room was beautifully appointed with a super comfy bed and spacious bathroom. The hotel is full of history along with a hip jive that made it a fun place to stay!

We stayed here the night of our wedding before we left for our honeymoon the following morning. We decided to spend the extra money so we could stay somewhere nice and have a good memory, rather than staying somewhere mediocre. As a wedding gift, the hotel upgraded our room and left us a nice bottle of prosecco. We were on... More

The room was quite large and njcely appointed. The location is fantastic--a short walk to Powell's Books, the Pearl District, great shopping and good restaurants. Front desk staff, especially Travis, was very helpful.

We were very pleased with the Sentinel. The location is very central, walking distance to good restaurants (and food trucks), right on transit lines. Staff were uniformly gracious and helpful. Our room was spacious and very nicely appointed, with two comfortable chairs and a great bed. The building itself is pretty cool, with interesting history and architectural features.

Thank you for your fantastic review. It is always great to hear that folks enjoyed the neighborhood in addition to our hotel. We are lucky to have some of the best food carts right outside our doors and it sounds like you were able to take advantage of that. We do hope to see you again soon! More

Couldn't have been happier with our choice for a D.T. Portland hotel. In the heart of everything. Beautiful, comfortable & well managed. A parking lot is located across the street which can save you valet parking fees.

Hotel was our "wedding central" site for daughter's wedding, which was held in West Linn. Our guests loved the hotel for its comfort, location, dining and cocktail options (thank you Jake's, awesome and a surprise as most hotel restaurants are not special), spacious rooms, city views (in some rooms), accessibility for exploring Portland, service, and wonderful elegance. Staff is great.... More
