Great to have a groovy bar just off the lobby open late - cool scene. It was a special birthday vacation and the guest services folks put a nice birthday message and two very sexy cupcakes. There are two tremendously immense construction projects going on at the northern and eastern sides of the hotel that begin work early in the am. Like bulldozers and stuff at 4:00 in the morning. The staff were great - relocated/upgraded us to a nicer room away from the racket.

Everything was beautifully designed and staff was awesome

Terrible service. Wired resort fee. The service is so slow, usually take half an hour.

Centralized location offering a huge choice of shopping venues.

a lot of people in need. I know city and citizens are helping them. Maybe more police involvement would help better. beautiful city beautiful people

Beautiful stylish hotel with friendly staff who went above and beyond to help make our stay perfect!

The hotel was beautiful and I loved the historic character.

Really enjoyed the location of being downtown. We really felt like everything revolved around the Sentinel in town. It was our beacon when exploring. We were a little disappointed because the pictures indicated that there was a fire pit on the roof of the hotel. That we believe was only for certain guests who had those kinds of rooms. Other than that, very nice hotel. We were into the modern feel of a building in a building that has historically been there for awhile. We would come back here

Great hotel in a great location. Got upgraded to a King bed. Loved their eco approach.

I came with my husband and two 5 yo kids. It was so amazing! The service was as top notch as it gets. The staff was friendly and really wanted to help make our stay the best! You can essentially walk to or take the street car anywhere you want to go in the city! Highly recommend!!

Rooms with doors that connect to the next room exist, so if you don't like those (and I don't), make sure you specify in advance. I asked for a switch as soon as I saw, and the front desk could not have been more helpful!! I had a great stay for three nights.

Perfect downtown location walking distance to wonderful shops & restaurants. Great afternoon cocktails at Jackknife or Jake's

I enjoyed my stay at the Sentinel and will stay there again. The hotel is centrally located, the rooms are big and well-appointed, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

I was expecting a 4 stat hotel experience based on the information online. It is not. The lobby was narrow and long, there are chairs but definitely not a comfortable place to wait and sit. Our room was very small, dark and noisy - next to the train track, it was noisy at night when train goes by. The air conditioning was also super loud. we booked hotel through Orbitz, the full amount was paid through website including tax and fees, however when we check out, the front desk said there were extra charges for using coffee, tea or other facilities in the room - aren’t coffee and tea free in most hotels? I did use one tea bag, oh plus shampoo and little soap bar in the bathtub, I guess that was included in that “extra fees”. Speaking of facilities, the stand up vanity Mirror was broken, the facility was cheap and the little metal table in the bathroom had obvious rusty stain on it. The hairdryer was loud but not enough heat. I would say this is a 2.5 Star hotel trying to have a vintage look to it. Overall I wasn’t happy, definitely I won’t come back.

This hotel has everything and more then what I was expecting
