Jeff J wrote a review Feb. 3
Hotel was clean, the room was comfortable, and the staff was awesome. And unlike much room service food since covid, the food on the room service menu was delicious. Not only will I be coming back to the Sentinel, I will be going back this month. This hotel is a keeper!

From the front door reception with help unloading our luggage to Reception desk to our Room! Exceptional friendly service!! We were treated with such lovely and unexpected gifts of flowers, chocolates, bubbly for our 2 night stay celebrating my husband’s and my birthday’s!🥳 (86 and 73!! ) We requested a specific type of room and we got it! Our every whim was catered to… including breakfast room service! Our heartfelt thanks to all of ‘Paige’s’ 😉 Concierge’s!! You ALL went the ‘extra mile’ for a couple of Seniors! We felt very looked after, loved and very special! Thank you for making our time with you so memorable! ❤️🥳🎄😘

My husband and I were in Portland last weekend…just a little getaway. I chose the Sentinel snd I’m so glad that I did! Beautiful hotel, great location, friendly staff, clean, nice room, comfortable bed, quiet for sleeping and a super gym. We ate at Jake’s Grill (located in the hotel). Delicious! The door men were helpful too. Just an overall great stay!

This place is a gem. We hosted our wedding here and it was amazing. The front desk, staff, servers all went above and beyond with our requests. Everything you want a hotel to have is here. You don’t need to leave the hotel to experience live music, dance, or have a great meal. By far the best hotel we’ve stayed at.

We stayed for a New Years Eve wedding. Since it was raining we did not venture out although there are many great stores within walking distance. We ate at Jakes several times. Every meal was great. From hotel to restaurant the staff was very friendly and courteous. Beds comfortable, rooms basic no frills. We loved the old historic charm and details. Lots of memorabilia in hotel and Jakes, take time to browse.

Lovely hotel with a great atmosphere. The hotel was an old bank and has a lot of charm. The rooms were extremely clean and the staff was welcoming. There is a restaurant attached with great food available all hours.
