We stayed at the Sentinel for our first visit to Portland and we were incredibly impressed. The hotel is in a great central location and looks fantastic following its recent renovation. We had booked a junior suite but on arrival asked about upgrading to a city view terrace suite. This was offered for a very small additional charge and the... More

A step back in time - feel pampered. The hotel is old but elegant and service from valet to front desk to housekeeping and bartender downstairs in the Steak House were all excellent. Take some time to study the history of this historic building.

The staff was super friendly and courteous. The room was spacious, very clean and tidy, with a great view of downtown Portland. Great restaurant, trendy bar with good music and the ground level Starbucks, complete an awesome property, worth visiting again and again!

My wife and I loved this place, all the wonderful small details, the friendly staff and the great service provided by everyone we encountered. Room service was nice, very comfortable bed. Our son recently moved to Portland and we will be visiting often and this is the place we will stay!

Sentinel is trying to be one of the hipper hotels in Portland but deserves only a 2.5 star rating. The room was clean and had tasteful decor. The fireplace is probably a nice feature for Portland's typical weather. Clearly, they had a good designer engaged on the last remodel, but the workmanship was poor in some areas. Several of the...

This was most expensive hotel during our stay in U.S.A. Hotel was very good and in good lodation. But our reservation request to call taxi in the morning was not conducted because our request did not took over.

Street noise all day and night. High cost but not a value. Good location and charm. The renovation was well done. Our room was spacious but the streetcar ran all day and night and made for little sound sleep. A higher room or facing away from the street is a consideration.

Great hotel, with an excellent location. Family room smaller then expected so needed to pay for another room. Otherwise very good. Very Friendly and helpful staff. Room clean and beds very comfortable.

The price was average for Portland, but the hotel is a unique boutique hotel. I love the mix of elegance and trendy decor. The staff was welcoming and very helpful. My husband fell in love with the pillows because they were so comfortable and they helped him to buy a brand new one. The beds were quite comfortable and the... More

My first time in Portland and we were very impressed with the staff and the beautiful hotel. Great art works in the hallways, and just a wonderful experience. Convenient location to explore the city and all the brew pubs.
