We booked this hotel as it's highly rated on TripAdvisor, and deservedly so: Lovely old building, tastefully decorated, large comfortable room, excellent service, and a good location in central Portland. The only drawback is that our room was on an airshaft. As we don't like air conditioning, preferring to have the windows open, this is a drawback (noise & lack...

Very quiet and comfortable room, very nice location. Took the Street car to the Japanese Tea Garden, shopping in the Pearl and NW 23rd St. and to dinner in the Pearl. Great location! Front desk folks are fantastic; friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. I will stay here again next trip to Portland.

Totally enjoyed our stay at the Sentinel, and wish we had more time to spend there. Employees went out of their way to be helpful, including walking with us to show us the way to the elevator with our luggage cart. Everyone we met was friendly and eager to be of service in any way. The room was small but...

From the moment we walked in to the Sentinel, we felt welcomed and comfortable. It is located in an extremely convenient downtown location less than 2 blocks from the light rail and street car stops. While my husband and I were there, we were celebrating our anniversary. When we got to our room after traveling, we found chocolate, champagne, and...

This is a great place to stay if you want to be near all the downtown restaurants and goings-on. The building was constructed in 1909 and has a beautiful exterior. Inside there are still some of the old wooden floors. Our room was a deluxe king. Painted in a soothing forest green, it had a comfortable bed with good linens,...

Seven hours driving what should have been a 2 hour trip due to a diesel spill on a highway. Missed all viable flights to make a wedding in another state. No reservation, but The Sentinel found us a quiet suite on the second floor. Relief! Quiet! Comfort! Air conditioning! The bathroom was tiny, and there was an odd open space...
