I wish I had written sooner but I have never found another hotel that has made me fall in love with it as much as The Sorrento. From the moment you pull up in the turnaround to the moment you leave it's like walking through a small piece of classic Seattle history with all of the comfort and lavishness of...

Beautiful old hotel, nicely redone. The staff here is amazing. We arrived three hrs prior to check in but were given a room immediately. Short walk to pikes and other landmarks. If you don't feel like walking there is a car service that will take you to downtown attractions. Must stay hotel.

Great location in the first hill area of Seattle. Near every thing. Very friendly staff willing to please in this small boutique hotel. A surprisingly good restaurant on the first floor well worth dining experience. Also great pub atmosphere in the bar with very good libations. We had a king suite that was comfortable and well worth the cost. Would...

Luxurious beds, friendly staff and beautiful amenities. The hotel is quite old-school decor wise, which we really appreciated in a world of modern and standardised hotels. Although quite expensive, we managed to get a great deal through eBookers (breakfast was not included in the rate, however we ate in the mornings at a cafe just opposite the hotel that was...

If your looking for a beautiful place to relax, this is it! The hotel is very old ( don't expect a modern feel) but well maintained. The service is first rate and the room service was great. You get what you pay for.

This was one of the best places we stayed on our California driving trip. It's a nicely kept older hotel with lovely rooms and a cool lounge area where musicians come for free on the weekends. We were lucky in that the night we went down for drinks, the musician was playing mellow rock music on his guitar and not...

This is definitely an older hotel with charm. Originally, we had booked only one suite. After we had been on the road for over a week, we decided that we would like to have a second room so that we didn’t have to share a room with our boys. The hotel was nearly booked, but they were able to find...
