Beautiful building. Great Service. Jakes Restaurant was amazing. My only complaint is the area isn't great but that is not the hotels fault. We would come back here though. The room was so nice. Perfect.

On my way back to Seattle from L.A. Could iof drove home but family wanted to rest. Really glad that we got to stay here. Love the original 1920 architecture detail, which you don't see too much of in the west coast. Yet the accommodation and service was 5 star. The staff and manager were top notice service from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. Funny thing is, since I'm so close to Portland we usually don't plan on spending time down here but this place is definitely a place we would come back too to enjoy the city.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary staying at the Sentinel, beautiful suite with a lovely view of the city, the fire pit on the patio made the evening magical. The staff was helpful and courteous. COVID precautions made us feel very comfortable. A shame that their bar, Jackknife was closed because of Covid. Would absolutely stay there again
