Great amenities, décor, vibe. Bar food was amazing with lots of vegan options, staff is friendly and helpful! I was sick on this trip, and they brought me hot tea! So kind! This place feels cozy, but it is professional and business ready!

I had high hopes for this hotel from previous reviews, and I was not disappointed! Clean, fun, tasteful, roomy - and even fairly quiet, given our room was on the 3rd floor along a busy Portland street. Staff was friendly. The hotel is beautiful. Loved having Jake's Grill attached. Will be back. Highly recommend.

Hotel nicely situated. Great old world charm. Desk staff friendly and knowledgeable. Room was small and bathroom not illuminated enough for makeup, etc. very dark. Toiletries were sparse. Bed was great. Good sleeping. Nice restaurant, Jakes Grill, downstairs. Had breakfast and it was excellent. Bar in hotel was hopping, but we didn't partake.

A true classic beauty in Portland. The hotel is an exquisitely defined older building kept in pristine form. Gives you a great taste of our local luxury without being to egotistical about it. We adored the staff....we are Oregonians sooooooooo. Top notch. We are not high end---but enjoy fine things. And fine things to be had. Not one thing out...

The check in process was slow. There were several of us. I was provided key cards and no assistance to my room. At a "lower quality" property they offer you a refreshment and may even take your bag. My key cards did not work so I was forced to go back down, bag and all to the lobby to get...

This is a charming hotel. Very much like the way the rooms are decorated, and they are clean, which is very important to me. To top it off the staff is friendly and very acccomodating. The staff is great!

We stayed at the Sentinel Hotel for one evening to celebrate our 24th anniversary (we live in Portland and wanted an urban escape). We were greeted warmly and quickly and then surprised nicely by having our room upgraded with a terrace and fireplace. The room was decorated and furnished modernly and had every detail for guest comfort. The staff is...

When booking I requested a quiet room. I was given one right over the lobby bar and heard thumping bass until I couldn't lay there any longer, and requested a room change, at 12:30-1:00 and schlepped my clothes to the new room. Then I could finally sleep.

The service at this hotel is always terrific, from the valet to the bell man to house keeping. The room service is fast and the food quality is excellent. It is also a great location in the heart of Portland. i have stayed here 4 times and keep coming back.
