Overall, the hotel had GREAT service. The location was prime, right next to great restaurants and coffee shops. There are other parts of downtown that were dirty but this part was nice and clean. The staff was incredible, I can't say enough great things about them. The only thing that sucked was the noise outside woke me up each day...

We planned to enjoy the city after a brief stay at the beach (Newport) and wanted something really nice. We also needed pet accommodations for our cat traveling with us. The Sentinel was absolutely the perfect hotel in every way. It was expensive, but well worth the location, accommodations, and service. It is multi-floor and have a few (a bit...

Visit to Portland for leisure/sporting event. Loved this hotel. I highly recommend it if you're in Portland. Very convenient to restaurants and shopping as well as the light rail train. We didn't even need our car.

A classy redo of an old property in a relatively good location. Staff went out of their way to make us fool comfortable. Room near and very clean. "Room at the end of the hall" on the Executive Floor was a very classy touch. Would stay here again.

Excellent hotel, which brings the old with the new. Jake's restaurant is amazing .. food was "killer" and the best Manhattan outside of Milwaukee!! Staff were fun to work with and one could tell they really enjoyed their jobs, too!

This is a lovely building/hotel near the Pearl District. Perfect for walking/biking around the city. Sentinel lent us bikes! Numerous shops, restaurant, and breweries nearby. Friendly, helpful staff. Fun and lively area!

This facility has stunning architecture and history. Just beautiful! You can walk the halls and just feel the history oozing through. The staff always goes above and beyond to make guests feel welcome and pampered. They were even able to need my dietary needs which never happens when I travel. Great place to experience when you are in Portland!

Awesome hotel. Great location, food excellent. Location perfect. Person who checked us in was very friendly and thorough in answering any questions we could have had. Directed us personally to elevator. Public transportation is quite easy and ample throughout the entire city. Portland is a very walkable city and there are bicycles to rent everywhere.
