Very nice rooms with fireplace, great bed and a variety of pillow options. Only one elevator caused minor delays at times. Can hear street car go by, but not a problem. Good location. Bar lacking some basic ingredients, unable to make a Bloody Mary!!

We went to Portland to check out the many food carts, the hotel is right around the corner from two blocks of the carts. We arrived at 10am to drop off our bag and was surprised that they had a lovely parlor room for us right then. Beautiful hotel, would stay again.

So happy to know that we were able to accommodate your early arrival request. Nothing beats a good food cart lunch on a warm, summer Portland day. Pleased to know you were able to enjoy your time in Portland and happy to hear that Sentinel played a part in your fun.

Second visit to the Sentinel. Great experience both times. Its nice when you get to your room and it is nicer than you expected. Also had lunch at Jake's and drinks at the Jack Knife, Both like the hotel itself were nicer than I expected.

Corner city view room is bright, spacious and beautifully appointed. The entire hotel is beautiful and ideally located in downtown Portland. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return to the Sentinel.

The Sentinel was a terrific experience. They excel at the details: unique room decor, very clean, an enthusiastic and cheerful front desk, and a great lobby bar. The overall architecture and ambiance was unique and unlike anything we visited before.
Here were the touches that bumped our experience to five stars:
- getting us a table at a popular restaurant with an hour to spare. We felt important when bypassing the busy lobby and getting a table.
- great recommendations on in-town activities and bike rentals.
- easy bag storage and valet parking.

We would definitely go back and highly recommend the Sentinel.

This is a great hotel with excellent packages and lots of charm and comfort. Use the website to search for a package that fits your needs. Jake's restaurant alone is a reason to stay there; it is fabulous.

We loved the location of the hotel. It was right downtown and within walking distance to restaurants, shops and bike rentals. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. A definite must stay hotel if you are in Portland.
