    Underwhelming and a bit of a con

    To be honest, this was an underwhelming hotel. It took nearly an hour for them to bring my bag to my room when I checked in and I didn't really notice any service after that (even the doorman usually just watched me go in and out without even moving to get the door). My big issue with this hotel is the "facilities charge" they add on to your bill when you leave. Apparently this is to cover things like tea, coffee and use of the gym. I don't understand why these things aren't included in the cost of the room and it strikes me as a bit of a con to be honest. I won't bother staying here again.

    Great location and excellent staff

    I spent two nights at the Sentinel for work, and had a number of meetings around Portland with some leisure time also.

    A great hotel impacted by poor maintanence

    Even with the air-conditioning switched off, the vents make too much noise for it to be a wonderful stay

    A comfortable and well located hotel

    The hotel is well located in downtown to see the tourist sights and close too good restaurants. Our room was large and the bed was really comfortable. Staff and friendly, welcoming and helpful. Jake’s grill is the hotel’s dining option for breakfast. We found the food a little disappointing and overpriced. A small gripe is about the elevators, they are old, look very tired and painfully slow. On the whole however, the hotel was good.

    Love the Sentinel Hotel!

    My husband and I stayed here for our one year anniversary honeymoon and had never been to Portland before, we absolutely loved it! The service was wonderful and we loved the historic architecture of the hotel, it really made it stand out to us when were looking for hotels. We also ate at Jack Knife which is one of the hotels restaurants which was excellent! We also really liked the large portraits of various musicians around the hotel such as Dolly Parton, Grandmaster Flash and the Velvet Underground. Will definitely stay here again when we come back to Portland!

    Expensive 1990s luxury living

    Would overall rate the Sentinel as okay. It has good access to downtown and the Pearl but there’s nothing that stands out at the Sentinel. The staff seemed like they couldn’t be bothered, the hotel room (we stayed in a king suite) could use an update. The electronics available don’t have any airplay or streaming services. The whole place feels like it would’ve been luxury in 1992.

    Such a wonderful hotel with gracious staff and rooms with character. We love this spot, the neighborhood and walkability is great. Hopefully a new coffee shop opens up in the lobby soon. We miss having the Starbucks right there. My only add would be to have queen sized beds, the doubles are really small for two people to share.

    A little disappointing

    The hotel is an architectural gem( lobby ceiling) and was overall very clean. However, mechanical issues popped up with the air conditioning not working and alarms going off in the middle of the night due to a bath tub leaking and shorting out some wiring. Finally, elevator was old and needed replacing.
