This is a great hotel in a great location, wonderful glamorous rooms. Good value for money. The staff was excellent, especially the front desk. The hotel bar attached in the lobby is also very charming. Enjoyed every part of the hotel and recommend to anyone staying in Downtown Portland!

Short stay, but amazing!

The staff were super friendly and helpful, full of information. We got a free upgrade, which was a bonus...wish we could have stayed longer. Great location, near good shopping and good eating. Loved it!

Best Hotel in Portland!!!

We've lived in the area for 15 years and have stayed at some great hotels in downtown Portland (Heathman, Benson, etc)...I don't know how we've missed this gem! The Governors Hotel (now Sentinel) was top-notch. From the easy, efficient, and quick check-in (our front desk clerk made sure we knew his first name he left the front desk to walk us down to the elevator (FYI another staff was present and ready for the next front desk guest) and he even showed us how to use our key card). Probably the most comfortable hotel bed we've slept on since our stay at the NYC Four Seasons. After dinner we peeked into a private dining room with a wine "cellar" along one long wall. A staff member "caught" us and graciously invited us in (no guests were present...he was setting up the room for another event). He told us a bit about the size of the room and encouraged us to go look at the wines. Again, he could have easily looked the other way, or even just said "hello." But instead took the initiative to pro-actively welcome our goosenecking and encouraging us to come have a look at everything. All while he continued to do his job. He wasn't trying to "sell" us the room...he seemed genuinely proud of the dining room and wanted to show it off. This is not the norm we've experienced in downtown Portland in the past! When we were leaving our room at the end of our stay, someone from housekeeping ran into us when we were waiting for the elevator. She spoke to us and wanted to know if we were checking out (WE didn't engage her, SHE proactively spoke to us). She inquired how we enjoyed our stay. (I don't think she was head of housekeeping or anything like that...I'm pretty sure she is the employee that probably had to make-up our room.) She thanked us and asked if we needed anything or anyone to help us with our bags (just had small over night bag, but was awesome that she offered and seemed genuine--very refreshing!). I assume The Sentinel must take care of their employees based on the way they seem to truly enjoy their jobs! Jake's is a great restaurant to have in your lobby. Had Mac & Cheese for dinner and completely awesome fresh Dungeness Crab Eggs Benedict for breakfast. Top-shelf service and surprisingly reasonable prices. Highly recommend. It was very nice to have a great place to eat right in our hotel (instead of overpriced & pretentious hotel lobby restaurants that are abundant in downtown PDX). We can't wait to go back to The Sentinel. Our new favorite hotel! Thanks for a great weekend getaway!

good not great

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The beds are also very comfortable. Staff was pleasant but maybe a bit slow.... When asked for a nearby diner recommendation for breakfast, a blank stare was the reply. The hotel has a large Starbucks attached to it, which for us is a negative. With all the good/great local coffee in Portland-- Stumptown! It was unfortunate to have such a middlebrow chain attached to this local landmark hotel. Recommended, but if you are looking for Luxe, this is not it.
