Walk to everything from here, and return each day to a very comfortable and clean room. Solid building with no noise through walls or doors. Cool restaurants and bar downstairs. Great mattress, and a very solid sleep.

Nice boutique feel. Great rooms. Very convenient to have a Starbucks connected to the lobby. I stayed on the side that had the street car, but the hotel supplied ear plugs which I ended up not even needing. It was just a little bit noisy. I will definitely stay there again when I head back to Portland!

The Sentinel was one of the most impressive hotels I have ever stayed in. It is historic, with lovely, impressive rooms. The hotel facilities are awesome; the staff is awesome, and the services are second to none. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. You won't regret it.

Love the place. Staff is always nice. The rooms are all unique. Food is great too. Location is awesome. I wish they would have vallet packages. Kind of expensive for vallet but nothing abnormal to any other hotel.

Above and beyond! Got a free upgrade to an executive suite, which was awesome. Too cold to enjoy the beautiful balcony but we loved the Room at the End of the Hall. We were there for a banquet and I had a wardrobe malfunction while getting ready (oops!) and front desk dug up some safety pins for me so I...
