The Sentinel was wonderful, from check-in to check-out. The staff were friendly, helpful, and attentive. The room was clean and comfortable. The food ordered from room service came quickly and was hot and delicious. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go due to the central location. I can't recommend The Sentinel highly enough, and we will be staying here every time we come to Portland.

This hotel was perfect. Every detail from the staff to the decor were top notch. The gym is well done both visually and equipment-speaking.

Nice place but charged too much for overnight parkPosted Sep 1, 2017
Pros: Nice,clean attentive and helpful staff.
Cons: Parking fee.
Location: Great location. Near Powell's books, banks and other retail centers
Just stayed one night but have stayed at the hotel a number of times over the years. My wife and I were very comfortable and pleased with the hotel in general. The only comments we would make is the overnight parking fee seemed excessive.. At that price if we had stayed a weekend we would have paid almost a hundred dollars just to park our vehicle. The only other concern we had was the poor service we received at "Jake's" restaurant the morning we left. We were promptly seated but had to wait for a while to be contacted by a server. The server apologized and said she was "training" a new server. We made our breakfast order and I asked the server if she could find out the radio station that was playing in the restaurant. She said she would. It took a long time to be served our meal and we had to signal our served twice for additional service, i.e. coffee refill, hot sauce. We later received our bill, checked it, and found the check was for another table. We contacted the server who retrieved our bill which we paid it. Prior to leaving I asked the server if she was able to find out about the radio station I had asked about. The server said she had forgotten and would check. The server returned with an answer. The reason we mentioned this situation is my wife and I have eaten at Jake's a number of times, including the previous evening, and have enjoyed excellent service. This is why the poor service we received that morning stood out so much.

LOVE the SentinelPosted Aug 25, 2017
The Sentinel well exceeded our expectations for our stay. Portland is a super walkable city and staying here you are in the heart of it all. Wonderful restaurants and shopping (Powell's is just a few blocks!). EXCELLENT staff and an elegant timeless feel. My son and I enjoyed our stay in Portland immensely and a big part of that was the hospitality and welcome of our beautiful room in this gorgeous old school traditional hotel.
