Reviewed April 30, 2011

I stayed here after finding a good, last-minute weekend rate on their website The staff was accommodating and friendly, and the bed was extremely comfortable. I also thought their selection of in-room coffees and teas was excellent. I stayed on a Saturday night but did not really notice any of the siren noises that other people have written about. The hotel was within walking distance of many of Seattle's major attractions, but yes, the hills are steep and not recommended for families with strollers who prefer to walk rather than drive to Seattle's shops, restaurants and museums.

The experience my husband and I had was FABULOUS from the time we pulled up at Valet to the Time we checked out.
The Sorrento has theBEST Staff ,The Hunt Club Restaurant had Five Star Food and Service, The Suite was Exquisite, we stayed in the Music room, Great décor ,AND the Most Comfortable Mattress. The only thing we did not have in the bedroom was a flat screen TV and believe me we did not miss it

Lovely old hotel, still in great shape and run expertly. Elegant, charming room layouts. Extremely helpful staff. Warm, friendly bar, and QUIET (which I love). Live music in evenings on weekends. A quite good restaurant.

The staff at The Sorrento Hotel were professional, friendly, and caring. They treated us like royality. My wife was having testing done at the Virginia Mason Hospital. We were not businessmen or professionals but pretty common folks. We were treated with the same excellence as though we were professionals.
I wanted a nice comfortable place for my wife while she was going through her testing. Sorrento Hotel, it's accomodations, and staff exceeded our expectation. What a memorable experience. Thank you for all your service to us. We can't wait to come back.

The Hotel is very nice on the outside and the lobby awsome but the staff just doesnt seem to work together and seemed to be lost in most cases. We got a suite and got my daughter a reg room and i would have paid our price for hers instead of our. the room just seemed out dated yet it was clean. The door to the TV cabnet was falling off and the bed didnt sit even the left side almost touched the floor. And we used the fax alot for our work but thats when it was working and when it was running half the time the faxes would never go threw, the the charge for faxed went from $8 for about 30 pages to $56 lol. the dinner was good for most part but we wanted to have a nice dinner our last night my meat was over half fat with about two bites of meat. Along with that I wonder now what is the sign for that you put on your door that says do not disturb cause it never stopped any of the staff from coming in at all and when they did they only knock once, better hope your dressed. and last but not least put your stuff up before the maids come in or they will throw it away- my laptop cover and my daughters contacts lens and case all in the trash. I could write a book but think I have said enough

Decided to spend the night in Seattle for Valentines weekend and was looking for something a little different than the “big box” hotels downtown. Saw some good reviews on TA and picked the Sorrento. What a great find! From the moment we pulled into the circular drive, we thought we were in a boutique hotel in Northern Italy. Room had modern touches, CD player and Coffee press. However, it was the charm of the room (and what a view) and hotel that made the stay. Hanging out in the Circular lounge by the fire and listing to the live jazz was the way to go before dinner. The bar in the Hunt Club is the place to hang out after dinner for a quite night cap and to people watch. Service was great at every turn. Definitely going back to the Sorrento.

Lovely hotel! The staff was very attentive, rembered our names. The in-town car service is great! Rooms are clean with modern conveniences yet the old charm has been preserved. The Fireside room is fabulous and cozy; great for relaxing with a drink and snack after a long day of exploring the city shops and Pike Place Market.
