When booking I requested a quiet room. I was given one right over the lobby bar and heard thumping bass until I couldn't lay there any longer, and requested a room change, at 12:30-1:00 and schlepped my clothes to the new room. Then I could finally sleep.

The service at this hotel is always terrific, from the valet to the bell man to house keeping. The room service is fast and the food quality is excellent. It is also a great location in the heart of Portland. i have stayed here 4 times and keep coming back.

Small room- as a 5'5" female I felt that I was much too large for the bathtub. The shower head was also very low. The bathroom was large but the room felt very tight. The rooms vary in size so if that matter to you be sure to conform what your room style sq ft will be.

The Sentinel offered a great experience. The valet and front desk were wonderful. Both the restaurant and the bar were classy and fun. Our waitress at Jack's was a bit rude, but that was only negative experience. The gym is nothing special, which was a bit disappointing considering the rest of the place is amazing.

My employer scheduled an event at this location and I arrived relatively late the night before the event. I was upgraded to a suite and loved the extra space. Very cool building and a classic theme. Really enjoyed my stay even if it was short.

I had an excellent stay at this hotel. I particularly appreciated the front desk staff, a real Starbucks attached and the design of the room. The theme of the hotel is very cool. A great vibe. I didn't venture into the restaurant or bar but the bar looked like it had a great atmosphere.

We arrived later in the evening for a birthday getaway and were immediately greeted by a very friendly valet, that was incredibly accommodating and helpful in helping us find a good self-parking garage only a block away. Check-in was fast and easy and the front desk clerk was very helpful and thorough in explaining the property. We stayed in a...

The room/ terrace were amazing, helpful staff, easy access to nearly everywhere downtown, quality free snacks and drinks available in the common area. However, the fireplace is very noisy when it's windy.
