Negative Reviews


Valet parking proves too expensive for some.

According to reports, parking at Sentinel can be an expensive endeavor. Past guests that have driven to the hotel report that valet parking is pricey. Some motorists opt for other less expensive public parking options nearby.


Some rooms smaller than expected.

A number of guests report that guestrooms can be on the small side. Whilst the hotel features a number of larger rooms and suites, guests describe some rooms as being too small to move around in.


Lobby bar gets busy and loud.

The hotel's lobby bar generally receives positive reviews but some guests report that the bar can become very busy and, in turn, very loud. Understandably, weekend nights are reported to be the busiest times.
