Sentinel Hotel

Sentinel Hotel

Portland, Oregon

Named for the robot-like sentinels adorning its roofline, the Sentinel has long been considered one of the most daring and inventive structures in the state of Oregon. This Portland property—originally called the Seward and later known as the Governor Hotel—was built in 1909. The building was widely commended for its pioneering architecture that blended Early Modern and Arts and Crafts stylings along with a fully glazed terra-cotta exterior and intriguing roofline. The unusual aesthetic of the hotel piqued the curiosity of many, establishing it as a desirable go-to for the movers and shakers of the time.

Today, the Sentinel continues to attract visionaries, thought leaders and creative types, thanks to its rich history and a recent revamp. In 2012, Woodbine paired up with local investor/operator, Provenance Hotels, to identify the debt and equity capitalization elements that made it possible to launch an extensive, ground-up restoration and rebranding effort that resurrected the hotel as an inspiring, handsome destination for discerning travelers. The overhaul included enhancements to guest rooms, meeting spaces and the lobby and lounge, as well as the addition of alluring F&B options.
