I stayed as a guest at the Sorrento for 6 weeks. I had only planned for 5 days, but on the 2nd day, I asked if I could spend the rest of my time in Seattle at their hotel. (Previously, I had visited several of the downtown hotels). The hotel is beautiful. When I cozied up in the Fireside Room... More

Absolutely beautiful, old hotel. Located right by Virginia Mason and not far from downtown. Staff are all incredibly charming, attentive and helpful. Hunt club is beautiful and has fantastic food. The breakfast shakes are amazing! During the summer there's an outdoor dining area on the front patio. Lobby is elegant and great for meeting up for drinks. Lighting in the... More

This was my second stay at the Sorrento. I'd stayed previously aS single and as rooms can be in old hotels, my previous room was quite compact. Very nice, comfortable bed, very clean, with all amenities, but small. This time I had my 17 year old son with me, so we needed a larger room. The suite was so much... More

I loved this hotel. Historic and nicely renovated to keep it's old world charm. The beds were well made, with very luxurious sheets and comforters, with more pillows than you could use, and a very nice bathrobe to lounge around. The room was nicely appointed with a furniture that was above the average stuff you find about. And the accouterments... More

My husband and I, traveling for pleasure, spent four nights in this beautifully restored 1909 boutique hotel on First Hill. Our third floor room, on the quieter back side of the hotel, was elegantly furnished with an extremely comfortable bed and luxurious linens and amenities, including robes and a French coffee press with a canister of delicious Seattle coffee.

Very Nice Place. I do recommend it but need to say a few things. First, the bathroom where the toilet and shower is, is crammed into a very small area. I had to sit crosswise on the toilet because my knees hit the wall right in front of it in the normal position.I am average size and it was a... More

This hotel is beautiful! While retaining some vintage charm, our room was still modern as well as clean and very comfortable. Both my husband and I had a great night's sleep. The front desk staff were nothing but friendly, as were the staff in the lovely bar. We will likely be back!
