Where do I start? The Sentinel Hotel and Jakes Catering are the best in class! I give them 5 stars in all aspects. I recently got married in Portland, OR and hosted the reception at the Sentinel Hotel’s Governor Ballroom and used their in-house catering: Jake’s Catering.

The Venue: I love that the hotel has history to it. The designers who recently updated the hotel did a fantastic job my adding in funky Portland touches while still preserving the historical theme of the hotel. Everything about the “look” of this hotel is amazing and creates a great theme for a wedding. The Governor ballroom looks like a classic lavish jazz ballroom with 40 ft. ceilings and a ridiculous amount of crown moldings and grand columns. It certainly gives a Wow Factor when you step foot into it.

Jakes Catering Food and Planning: Julie Weiss, Todd and their banquet teams are catering geniuses. Their level of knowledge in the catering industry is far more superior than the average caterer. They are competitively price, a dream to work with, and executed their food and services better than I could have dreamed of.

All of the catering staff were dressed in sharp uniforms, they set up 2 beautiful bars with twinkling candles all over them. They didn’t miss a mark on the food service schedule. The whole service flowed beautifully which timed out our event perfectly, not to mention the food was delicious. I had guest comment that that the banquet staff were so attentive it felt like there was one banquet staff per guest. “Every time I was getting close to finishing my drink the banquet personnel topped off my drink immediately”.

The planning process with Julie was a blast. My mom and fiancé developed great banter with her, which brought in humor to the whole process, which then turned the planning process, believe it or not, into a FUN process.

Thank you to the whole team that made our wedding a dream come true!

I can not begin to describe how beautiful the Grand Ballroom was for my daughters wedding reception. It was only topped by the delicious food and the amazing service, from the day we first came to visit The Sentinel until we loaded the last wedding gift in our car. We were told by several of our guests that this was the best wedding they had ever been to!

Jake's was nothing less than phenomenal. They worked so closely with us to create an amazing meal and experience for our guests. They have amazing staff who made us SO comfortable for on our big day. Furthermore, their social sales manager, Julie Weiss, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful during the entire process. I felt cared for from start to finish. I would recommend Jake's to anyone!

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at The Governor - Stephanie and Erin at Jake's were a pleasure to work with. Always on top of it, they had it covered. The food was fabulous, the rooms are gorgeous, and the hotel and Jake's were both always quick to respond to any questions I had. They had SIX weddings, yes you read that right SIX, the weekend I got married. Three were happening simultaneously on my wedding day. Were there hiccups? Delays? A drop in service? Nope. Nope. Nope! Total professionals, they know what they are doing and they do it well. Many many thanks to all of the staff at Jake's and The Governor for a fabulous weekend

I was so happy with my service. Their event coordinator Stephanie was like a good friend, so easy to be with and so willing to help and advise. She always believed in the wedding vision (it was a bit unusual) and was someone I could count on to be calm, think of solutions and run things as much or as little as I wanted.

The venue itself is stunning--I got married in the Heritage Ballroom. Jake's food and catering were also excellent, and the staff were friendly, smooth and flawless. I hardly knew they were there.

We had a tiny bit of trouble with the rehearsal. Just be sure if you aren't using a different room for the ceremony than for the reception that you work that out in your contract or with Stephanie well ahead of time. I wasn't quite on top of that and it caused some trouble for the rehearsal the day before, but Stephanie bent over backward to resolve it, and everything worked out well.

The wedding and reception were absolutely dreamlike and perfect. I couldn't recommend this venue more!

Linda was AWESOME! She went above and beyond to make our wedding a wonderful experience. She was both personal and professional and was able to turn a stressful experience into something fun. I would highly recommend holding any event at the Governor Hotel. With Linda’s expertise and friendly spirit you can’t go wrong.

We stayed at the Governor for two nights, the night before, and the night immediately following, the wedding. We loved our suite! The majority of our out-of-town guests (we had many — most of our friends and family do not live in Portland!) stayed there as well. I believe we had over 30 blocked rooms there, and Melissa Staneck did a magnificent job taking care of coordinating those reservations. I'd definitely recommend working with her if you plan to have hotel blocks at the Governor. She was extremely responsive, friendly, and capable of thinking of potential guests needs that slipped my mind.

We loved everything! The menus they provided us to choose from were fantastic. We had a few changes we made to upgrade some of the meat selections and they had no problem with that. Really got our moneys worth. Everyone at the wedding commented on how good the food was and they even provided us with some kid friendly options as well.
