When you’re only prioritizing one of the PNW’s greatest cities for a single night of a two-week road trip, you have to make it count!
Smack-dab in the center of the downtown PDX grid, Provenance’s Sentinel Hotel is an iconic piece of Portland history.
It was one of the first luxury hotels in the area, and just (in time for our visit) went through a major $6 million renovation.
As you’re whisked through the Sentinel lobby en route to your room, you’re inspired by walls lined with luminaries, halls with local artist collabs, and lobby decor like a beautiful vintage typewriter just begging to be struck with a creation of your own.
And if you’re with me on Snapchat (join in for the daily adventures, if not! username: crntlyexploring), you already know the pure comfort that strikes as soon as you open the door to your room — crisp, white, spacious tiled bathroom, ample floor space, panoramic windows + skyline views, a majestic fireplace.
The Sentinel’s decor completely celebrates Oregon’s natural roots, which made the transition a lot less shocking coming out of Mt. Hood!
The nearby food scene is amazing (especially the food trucks), but since our time was short, amenities like 24-hour American fare at Jake’s Grill, and line-down-the-block nightlife at the attached craft cocktail bar, Jackknife were definitely an added bonus.
The best part: you can order Salt + Straw… on ROOM SERVICE.
What’s Salt + Straw, you ask? Just the most delicious farm-to-cone ice cream shop to come out of PDX yet. And they’ve expanded to LA! I digress.
There’s basically no reason to leave the building.
And if you do think of a reason to leave, you can just chime in your request on Provenance’s staple luxury, the “Make It So” button.
As if there’s anything more than ice cream…
Rooms in this little slice of PDX history start at $249/night.
