Reviewed 5 September 2016

The staff was unfriendly and rude. Asked for room service that never arrived, when I called to enquire, I was told they took it to the wrong room and it was denied, so, I should call for a pizza. They should have recognized the mistake and offered to remake my food. At 7am the next morning, I was woke up...

Wonderful stay, one of the few places I've stayed that matches how it portrays itself in photos online. Well-curated decor and vibe of the hotel, even the smell was luxurious when you enter the front door! Nice and clean, friendly staff and comfy bed! One small thing - we don't know if the exhaust fan in the bathroom worked, but...

This hotel was amazing! From the trendy decor and accommodations to the room service offerings (Salt & Straw ice cream!) to the friendliness of the staff, our stay in this hotel was awesome. We loved its proximity to local attractions we wanted to visit such as the Japanese Gardens and Powell's Books and great restaurants.

Even though we arrived early, the front desk staff found a room, upgraded us and got our things sent up to us! The front desk staff was exceptional, they were beyond courteous to us during our stay and were super helpful in giving us great recommendations for food, drink and activities in the area. These people are true, kind professionals....

Reviewed 31 August 2016

Excellent hotel with a very "Ralph Lauren" feel about it. Regal, yet not stuffy. Getting off the elevators down to the lobby can be tricky - you'll see when you arrive. There are a number of levels - back elevator, front elevator, etc. But the walk is very aesthetically pleasing from one to the other. Loved the little touches in...

Thank you for your review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit. Because our hotel is made up of two separate buildings that were joined together we do have a few more elevators than one would expect. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the scenic route around the hotel. We hope to see you again during...

We were in town for a wedding and we stayed at the Sentinel. The hotel was in excellent condition, was centrally located and our room was very nice. The service was excellent from the front desk to the valet service. We attended the reception in the governor's ballroom which was spectacular. The food for the event was great, service professional...

Didn't honor my daughter's credit card at check out. Room had to be put on my Visa card. Was told when checking in, my Visa card was just for 'incidentals.' Had a hard time finding the hotel although my GPS told me I was there. Didn't see a sign. Finally asked a guy standing on the street where the hotel...

Reviewed 30 August 2016

I read great reviews on-line, and selected the Sentinel. Overall we were extremely disappointed in our stay. Apart from the great downtown location and quiet, well-decorated room we expected more from a $400/night stay hotel. Our room sink was very slow to drain, there was absolutely no view with our 2nd floor room apart from a roof and adjacent exterior...

My wife and I checked in this past Saturday night for our 20th Anniversary. Wanted to stay somewhere nice and central to what's happening in downtown Portland. We had a few hiccups initially, but the manager went above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable and positive experience. The views from our room are phenomenal (5005). Book your...
