Reviewed 30 August 2016

I read great reviews on-line, and selected the Sentinel. Overall we were extremely disappointed in our stay. Apart from the great downtown location and quiet, well-decorated room we expected more from a $400/night stay hotel. Our room sink was very slow to drain, there was absolutely no view with our 2nd floor room apart from a roof and adjacent exterior...

My wife and I checked in this past Saturday night for our 20th Anniversary. Wanted to stay somewhere nice and central to what's happening in downtown Portland. We had a few hiccups initially, but the manager went above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable and positive experience. The views from our room are phenomenal (5005). Book your...

Great location & super staff. Very nice hotel. Loved having Jake's Grill attached. They have a nice happy hour. Public transportation is very close for traveling throughout the city. We would stay here again.

We stayed two nights in Portland at Sentinel. The valet / bell staff were friendly and helpful, as was the agent who checked us in. Our room was beautiful and roomy enough for a short stay. The linens and bath products were nice as well. We could have used more counter space in the bathroom (it had a pedestal sink),...

The Sentinel delivered a refined/elegant experience without the snobby staff. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. The room was beautiful and I love the little things that give it character- dark walls, crown molding etc. The location was central for our family to meet with us and enjoy a drink in the Jackknife lounge. Overall, this is the place to stay!!

There is no doubt about it The Sentinel is a lovely and very comfortable hotel with sweet people working in it but I have to admit there were far too many issues during the five days I stayed there. Granted they did what they could to rectify each and every one of them but to be honest nearly every issue...

From the moment we arrived we enjoyed our time at this hotel. The staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful in particular the man at the front desk with red coloured hair (apologies for the poor description, I didn't get his name), who really made our time great. The hotel location is spot on, right next to one of the best...

In the heart of downtown Portland, The Sentinel is in an old Elks Club, with much character. Service is reasonably good, with that lackadaisical hipster vibe being prominent. The bar is a major scene, and Noisy, so if you're on the second floor, be prepared for restless sleep. Clean and well-maintained. Parking is expensive. The executive lounge on the 6th...

Beautiful old hotel, carefully remodeled and comfortably decorated. Starbucks in the lobby, great lobby area bar, convenient to everything in downtown Portland. Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, and nice decorated. Bathrooms are nicely sized and appointed with excellent products. Highly recommend the location.
