First impression upon arrival set the tone for the rest of our stay. It was extremely difficult even with GPS to find this Hotel the only indication that we saw that helped was the HS initials on the valet booth. Pulled up to the valet and was informed that the garage was at full capacity and that even though we needed to park handicap we would have to park two blocks away and tote our luggage to the hotel. When we finally made it inside to the hotel we were completely lost because you then have to tote your luggage up a wooden flight of stairs to check in on the second floor. We later learned that there was a side door that led to the elevators. A first time visitor like myself would have never guessed that...I traveled with a group of 6 and overall if you don't mind early morning construction noise or occasional loud music from the club area or the courtyard then this is most definitely the place to stay.
I must say that we had a few minor hiccups during our stay and after we expressed our concerns to the Assistant General Manager he did go out of his way to personally make things right. So I will spare the details of the minor issues we faced and focus on the many positive. I would most definitely stay here again if I was looking for a weekend get-a-way spot for romance or a place to party with my girlfriends. Hotel Sorella is sleek, stylish and very innovative. I loved the design of the Hotel. My room was clean, modern and well stocked. We ordered breakfast one morning that was perfectly delish. I would recommend the vegetable omelet and the steak and eggs. The complimentary breakfast consist of all the fruits your heart desires, dry cereal and milk and pastries. Monnalisa is a great bar that has a very stylish atmosphere and great drinks.
I was a little disappointed with how early the surrounding restaurants close on the weekends. Most of the kitchens close at 11:30 which is no fault of the hotels but the hotel's kitchen/room service closes at 10pm as well.
