We were part of a large wedding party that stayed at this hotel for a couple of days to make it more convenient to attend the three events that were hosted in their ballrooms. The room we had was reasonably big enough for the family, except all the great furniture in it made it seem a bit too crowded. Bathroom was a bit on the small side as well. The beds were awesome. The staff was quite courteous. Location is great -- close to Powell's bookstore :-), close to the Rose Garden, as well as the SW side of downtown with the high-end shops. Nice restaurants and a LOT of food trucks within a block of it makes it a great location for foodies too.

On the downside, there is only one elevator servicing the floors on the side of the hotel where most of the rooms are. Sometimes the wait times were too long. And there is no swimming pool, much to the disappointment of the kids.

This is a beautiful historic hotel with a great location for experiencing downtown Portland. The architecture is classic with modern touches that add both northwest and Hollywood vibes. Fairly well integrated modern conveniences on site include a Starbucks and a lively night club that we did not hear once the elevator doors closed.
My wife "loved" the clean green doors that lead to spacious rooms compared to most other city hotel rooms, along with comfortable beds. All of the staff were professional, friendly, and prompt with any question although we never found ourselves in need of any special requests which I believe says a lot.

From the minute we arrived at the Sentinel, we had outstanding customer service. The friendly and professional staff made our stay one of the best in all our travels. The rooms were nicely appointed and the proximity to downtown venues make this a hotel I would highly recommend.

Booked this hotel through Rocketmiles, sight unseen. When we arrived the hotel clerk was very friendly and upgraded our standard room to a corner fireplace room for $40. The room was not clean yet, and she told us it would be about an hour. We returned 2 hours later and the room still wasnt ready. We waited another half hour in the lobby and when the room still wasnt ready she apoligized profusely and upgraded us to a top floor corner suite with verandah ovelooking the city (normally $600 a night!). The room and view were great. Bed was super comfy and with an 80 degree weekend in Portland the verandah was awesome. We were a little disappointed that there was no pool, but the gym more than made up for it! We are used to minimalist hotel gyms with a crummy treadmill and a universal gym from the 80's, this gym was replete with 10+ machines in good condition, 6 cardio machines and even some free weights.

A friend recommended The Governor for it's grandeur and charm....We were delighted to arrive at the (new) Sentinel---which very successfully managed to retain the appeal and luxe details of its former identity beautifully-- while incorporating some tasteful updates to the mix. The staff is A-1 and our room absolutely gorgeous! Room 323 boasts a fireplace and a large bathroom, in addition to a gigantic and very comfortable bed. We would have loved to stay longer!

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd Floor-- a corner room (323) with LOTS of windows--Beautiful light! Noise from street was not overwhelming, but we will investigate staying on a higher floor next time we return.
