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 better than I anticipated - and my son was mightily impressed! It was beautifully and tastefully decorated, quiet, and very clean. We were in town to celebrate my daughter's college graduation, and the suite's living room worked perfectly for visiting with family members.
This is a beautiful old hotel that has been wonderfully modernized and maintained, and it oozes charm and character. Old menus (from the early 1900's) are posted in the lobby and in the elevator to give you a sense of the history and age of the place. It's located in downtown Seattle, very convenient to Pike Street Market, Seattle Center and other downtown Seattle tourist attractions and the trendy restaurants of Capitol Hill.
Our room was exceptionally clean, as were the hotel's common areas. The staff was anxious to please, friendly and personable. We were greeted by a staff member each and every time we entered or left the hotel.
The only slight glitch we had was that the TV in the bedroom had little to no and somewhat intermittent cable reception. But since this visit wasn't really about watching TV, I won't hold that against the Sorrento! I just like to listen to the news when I'm getting ready in the morning.
