Staying here puts you in walking distance to The Pearl, as well as downtown. It's one of a handful of hotels that aren't "chain-y", like the Westin, and still contains a lot of charm and that boutique feel. The front desk team was friendly and helpful. The housekeeping staff seemed a big stingy when it comes to the amenities in...

We were booked at the Sentinel on 5/22. We went out to a concert that night and returned to the hotel to find that they had no power (nor did much of downtown Portland). I was so impressed with their grace and care in handling this situation! They got us seamlessly transferred to another wonderful hotel (they even paid for...

The hotel is tired, bathrooms very small with limited space to store your bathroom items and the condiments provided for use e.g. hair shampoo etc were of poor quality. Breakfast is only available in the room but there is no table available in the room and I don't like eating breakfast on my lap. The maid did not restock consumables...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that your stay fell short of your expectations. I was a little surprised by a few of the things you mentioned in your review, the first being breakfast. Jake's Grill in our hotel offers breakfast 7 days a week and we also have a Starbucks on property...

Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip. Nothing to fault except the bar being closed for a private function one night which was a bit frustrating, but not a huge problem. Also the construction site across the road which started at 6.30am. Rooms were spacious and well equipped. The bathrooms are clean and in excellent order, but these days...

We stayed here for our 39th anniversary. Tessa from the staff recommended a 6th floor terrace room, which was wonderful. We had a beautiful fire table which made the cool nights comfortable. The view of the city lights was fantastic. Additionally, the 6th floor offers you access to the "Room down the Hall" with snacks and simple breakfast options. The...

We had a family room which was very spacious, beds were comfortable. Our only issue was a noisy air conditioning unit. The hotel has a great 'old world' feel. There is a Starbucks on site but good coffee is not far away. There is an onsite restaurant and a good bar with a 'happy hour' The staff we dealt with...

The refurbished Governor's Hotel retains every bit of its old world charm and mixes in stylish new additions. The warm welcome from the valet and front desk are an indication you have arrived in style. Wing chairs abound, an old type writer at a vintage desk, and glorious glass low lights insist you take this designer hotel seriously. We recommend...

I regularly stay in hotels worldwide as I work in different cities and countries regularly, and I value comfortable and welcoming hotels highly so that traveling and experiencing new places is made that much easier. The Sentinel hotel is without a doubt, and I don't say this lightly, the best hotel I've ever experienced. I stayed in a suite with...

Everything about our stay was perfect! The decor is so cute and they hit all the little details! My parents wanted separate bedrooms, which they couldn't accommodate, so they upgraded them to a suite for free! My husband and I were in 601, which had skylights and a fireplace and a HUGE bathroom! We will definitely be back!
