Our stay was pleasant; hotel centrally located for easy access to city. We were able to walk everywhere and use the transit system which was very quick to gardens and restaurants. The people we met were friendly and helpful.

I just thought the whole experience was off. I already know I wouldn't stay there again. Some silly rules, tiny bathroom, dark bathroom, the Room at the End of the Hall was really nothing. Our terrace was used by someone from another room during our stay. He kind of scared us!

Beautiful boutique hotel located adjacent to the largest food truck pod in Portland. The hotel is filled with historical character while still remaining modern/quirky. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. I truly appreciated the complimentary birthday treats. This is now my go-to hotel for Portland.

I love the Sentinel and since I come to Portland, Oregon often, I find that it suits all my needs and then some. It is centrally located near everything that is interesting and worthwhile downtown, all within walking distance. It is an ideal location for anyone who needs to stay in the central city.

We had a great stay at the Sentinel! The staff is wonderful and the building is amazing. We were assigned a parlor suite with a birds-eye view of the Starlight Parade. We would definitely stay at the Sentinel again.

I recently spent 3 nights at the Sentinel for a business trip. The service was wonderful and the hotel is very much full of Portland charm as an old historic building. The facility was very clean and well decorated. I did not order any food, so cannot comment on that. The staff was friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. I definitely recommend...

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Although the hotel and rooms were more than adequate and a fair value considering the location, the staff set this place apart from other hotels. They were all very helpful, efficient, and friendly. I would stay at The Sentinel again, and I would recommend it to others who are...
