Have wanted to stay at this historic hotel in Portland for awhile. It is beautiful! Great staff at front desk. Dining at Jakes was a treat- excellent steakhouse and interesting decor. Drinks at the Jackknife were also very good! Very comfortable rooms; luxe linens and comfortable beds made for a great stay.

My boyfriend and I just stayed here to celebrate his 21st birthday, and our stay couldn’t have been better! The hotel and staff were super accommodating and even helped me set up some birthday surprises in our room prior to our arrival. Nicky and Cam at the front desk were more than wonderful, and were available throughout the night to answer any of our questions. We highly recommend this hotel, and will be staying here again soon!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Sentinel Hotel. It’s is as close to perfect as is possible - and one of our very favorite hotels in the US and world. The exceptional, very helpful and friendly staff, the gorgeous, luxurious and comfortable rooms, the amenities and location - all come together to create a wonderful experience. We will be returning to Portland specifically to have the chance to stay at this property again, as travel and dining restrictions continue to lift.

The Sentinel is an absolutely gorgeous hotel, and the service is amazing! My husband and I stayed for 5 nights and we loved it. From the moment we arrived, the staff took great care of us. Nicky in particular was especially helpful and friendly, offering plenty of recommendations for eating and places to go. Our room was spacious and so pretty, we loved staying there! The bar is great too! The restaurant attached is very good, especially the crab cakes and the Caesar salad. It's close to everything downtown, Washington Park and all the places you'll want to walk to. We plan on going back and staying at the Sentinel again. We've stayed in hotels all over the world and the Sentinel is now our favorite!

Great front desk staff, friendly, efficient and informative. Very clean hallways, elevator and room. Really impressed with the beautiful, historic property. Drinks at Jackknife were well made and dinner at Jake’s Grill was fantastic (both located within the hotel).
