The staff were very friendly and helpful! The rooms are very comfortable and a terrific value! Location is ideal. Walking distance to great restaurants and shops. This was my second stay for business but plan on staying there many more times.

Everyone s so welcoming and so helpful. The food was spectacular. We loved having Starbucks right there for a quick and yummy coffee. The bartender at Jake's shared a specialty drink recipe (Bourbon Smash) so that we can make it for our holiday party. My stay was spectacular.

Excellent location and the hotel has a totally unique feel to it with a great deal of character. I was especially enamored with my room - the size, layout and furnishings were all pleasing, and the cozy fireplace was a great finishing touch.

My spouse and I enjoy this hotel for its beautiful design, great rooms, excellent staff and great location. We've stayed now three times in the last year, traveling by train from Seattle. The staff was most helpful in locating a nearby Italian restaurant when the one we love most is temporarily closed.

I'm a fan of old buildings, and the Sentinel has expertly updated their premises while still retaining its sense of history. The rooms have everything you need: free wifi, tons of outlets to plug in your devices, a great staff, *real* coffee makers (not those single cup jobs!), electric tea kettles, fridges, a complimentary bathrobe, real hair dryers... It's these...

Super hotel. I researched all the top hotels in downtown Portland and picked The Sentinel. Told Zoe at the front desk it was a special bday weekend. She took great care of us and we had a fantastic stay. Beautiful corner room with fireplace and great view. Highly recommend.

A must see during the holiday months. I stayed here with my two year old daughter (and our dog!) during early December, and the tree in the lobby was simply gorgeous. Our stay at the Sentinel was one of the most comfortable trips I recent memory. I highly recommend it. Gracious and courteous staff and beautiful rooms.

Without a doubt, The Sentinel by Provenance in Portland is a full service luxury hotel. The staff will accommodate any request, ensuring your stay is nothing short of perfection. What was an overnight stop in Portland, will become an annual trip for shopping, great food, and a night of spectacular musical entertainment at legendary jazz club, Jimmy Mak's.

A very classy architecture flows throughout the hotel! The room at the end of the hall is such a smart and useful resource for guests! Service is stellar and hotel cleanliness is top notch. I will definitely seek this hotel for future stays!
