We were absolutely positive - upon checking in our hotel suite - that anything less than five stars wouldn't do a justice to Sorrento. Historical (1907) Seattle landmark featuring the authentic chic combined with every possible modern amenity. The location - contrary to some other reviewers' complaints - is ideal. It is quite central, downtown is easily reachable within 10... More

Everything about the Sorrento feels like a bit of a time warp. The lobby, the bar, the lift, the hallways, the carpeting all seem circa 19 something, but not very recent. It is old and seemingly falling apart in my opinion. The biggest problem is street noise. With poor sound insulation we heard traffic all night and construction nearby early... More

Lovely rooms with comfy beds, high quality linens, posh toiletries and a french press rather than a drip coffee maker. It's the little touches that make this hotel great such as the very helpful staff, the free glass of wine, the fresh cherries. They apparently have ice cream served at 11pm but due to jet lag I never made it... More

Clean comfy rooms ! Very noisy area around the hotel. Not central to downtown , many hills to climb. Great happy hour ! Friendly staff ! Wasn't happy again with the noise right by the hospital. If I would have known I wouldn't have chose the hotel for that reason.

Completely worthy of five stars! From check in, thank you Lisa, to outstanding concierge service, thank you Jerry, we were impressed with hotel staff! The Sorrento is an upscale boutique hotel and caters to their clients. Rooms are nicely appointed, luxurious linens, and fine toiletries. While not situated right downtown, all Seattle waterfront attractions and the Space Needle are easy,... More

Stayed here the night before an early ship to head to Victoria, Canada. Beautiful exterior and interior city hotel. Very nice/friendly/helpful staff. Modern mixed with quaint interior. Less than 10 mins to ship docks. Complimentary ride by staff. Room was good size with seating area and room for 2 in bath area. Note: Only a small/narrow shower stall in bath... More

I stayed here in July 2013 and had a great experience. The staff is wonderful, very helpful, very accommodating. The rooms are average size, and the bathroom was perfectly clean. I loved the old school Italian decor. The marble bathrooms were to die for. Room service was delicious and prompt. The restaurants on site are delicious. Location of the hotel... More
