Got a free room upgrade thanks to the hotel being overbooked. The new room was much nicer, but it was right next to the elevator and kinda noisy. Great downtown location, although that means no parking except valet which is almost $40 a night. Room was clean and bed was comfy. Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly with directions and advice about the area. Hotel is very close to the light rail and some shopping.

Great location!

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: The location.
Cons: The drinks in the honor bar should be refrigerated.
Location: Within walking distance of Powell's books. Jake's restaurant is right next to the lobby. Fantastic food day or night.
Went to visit our son who lives in SE. Walked everywhere! The Sentinel is near great restaurants, parks, museums. It's also right across the street from the block of food carts. So fun! A starbucks is right next door to the lobby. Very clean, comfortable boutique hotel. The windows open which provide a nice cross breeze and fresh air. Comfortable beds! Accommodating staff! We'll be back.

Perfection!

Every single detail of this hotel was wonderful. The location is ideal if you want to explore the most hip, artsy part of the city by foot... and there's easy access to a bevy of restaurants and food carts. We were completely happy with our choice and would choose only the Sentinel for our next visit to PDX.

Fabulous gem in downtown Portland

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Cons: The only improvement I have would be the upgrading the hairdryers in the rooms to a higher quality. They were as small and basic as they come.
Coming to Portland for a short business trip, I knew I wouldn't have much time to see the sights and explore the city. So I made sure to try to find somewhere that both my colleagues and I could stay that would feel like an indulgence and could make our experience there special (even if it was only from 8pm - 6am). The Sentinel did just that. The staff was warm and welcoming from the valet to the front desk. Everyone was eager to make sure your stay was enjoyable and memorable so they took the time ask questions about your visit and give suggestions if needed. I stayed in a King Deluxe room and it felt much larger than a typical chain hotel room. The furniture, the decor and room's accents were all unique and made your experience feel like it was one of a kind. The bed was AMAZING! My whole group agreed that if and when we go back to Portland this will be once again be our hotel of choice!
