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.

I loved this hotel! Prime location for dining and shopping, accommodating staff, quality service, great local partnerships and amenities. The rooms were very spacious, with a really cool eclectic vibe that lends itself to an old school gentlemen's library bar feel. The decor was funky and speaks to the Portland scene outside. Would definitely recommend!

If you want something in the heart of Portland this is your place. I stayed here only one night because of my quick turn around trip, however, it's very central and walking distance to many places. I highly recommend this place and will consider staying here in the future.

There might not have been a visible sign out side the hotel, but once we walked in we were so impressed. The hotel is so beautiful and clean inside. Front desk staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful. The room wasn't ready so they gave us a ticket for a complimentary drink at the amazingly beautiful and cozy bar. The room...

The Sentinel has become my new favorite Portland hotel! The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms are large, spacious, and decorated beautifully! The location can't be beat! Walking distance to downtown and the pearl. Easy to grab the street car as well. I highly recommend!
