Hotel elevator out of order. Both restaurants in hotel closed for private parties. Meal in lobby/bar area very drafty since near front door. Room was well appointed and comfortable. Staff helpful. Convenient from ferry dock and near Swedish Medical Center

Horrible room . Room unclean. We stayed 4 days and the room was cleaned only once. We had to beg for that! Do not use their Russian driver. He quotes you one price then at the end he triples the price! Very unscrupulous! Worst hotel experience of my life!

We chose the Sorrento because it was close to the hospital. The neighborhood is an interesting mix for exploring. The hotel staff was the most friendly and accommodating I think we've ever encountered. Our room was very nicely decorated and looks like recently updated. The bed was welcoming and comfortable. The only downside is that the location is a fair... More

I wasn't sure what to expect as I stumbled across this hotel online. I booked with them directly and was thrilled to actually speak to someone who was at the hotel. The service from beginning to end was courteous, professional and warm. The hotel has recently completed some upgrades which really make you think of a 1920's lounge feel. A... More

Stayed at The Sorrento for Emerald City Comic Con and I was impressed as soon as I walked into the lobby. It has a very classy old feel. I went into the room and it was amazing. The beds were comfortable and the blankets extremely warm. I didn't want to get out of bed in the mornings. In fact, I... More

I recently had the opportunity to stay here on a recent trip. the front entrance was being remodeled but overall that had no effect on my stay. This was once a grand place, the quality is evident, however it has not been maintained well. The building has an old smell, the beautiful woodwork is scratched and dented and hasn't been... More

But this hotel has just delightfully warm and restful rooms, great meeting spaces up on the 7th floor.... Really enjoyed myself. and now staying in Redmond at Marriott, I miss the hotel Sorrento already.. :-) Thanks for making meetings a... More

We had an unexpected trip to Seattle. Called the hotel and was told they had one room, in the Penthouse. Quoted rate for a suite for a high rack rate that I cannot find on website then discounted. Nice room, bad internet, meeting room next door very intrusive until 7-8:00 PM. Jetted bath but the shower flooded no matter what... More

We last stayed at the Sorrento on our wedding night 20 years ago, and when we decided to take a quick getaway to Seattle last week, we decided to relive some memories. It was a great decision and our only regret was that we waited so long. The staff was kind enough to give us an upgrade, and even left... More

We decided to stay in town on a whim last night and were fortunate enough to get one of the last two rooms available! The room was small, but SO elegant and so well appointed the size really wasn't an issue - especially for one night. The live music in the Fireside Room was a lovely way to cap off... More
