From science to music to fashion, and from sport to human rights, Sentinel’s art collection captures the dreamers, designers, makers and doers of our time. In the guest corridors, you’ll find larger-than-life black-and-white historical photographs featuring those moments – big and small – when sentinels are made.
A Rose City icon since 1909, this 100-room grande dame is fresh from a top-to-bottom overhaul. The Northwest-style touches include mounted wooden deer heads, framed Columbia Gorge sword ferns, and souvenirs of “genuine Portland rain” in the mini-bar.
