Reviewed 3 April 2012

We booked the Sorrento directly through the hotel website. Got an excellent price for our 3 night stay. The staff was great, starting off with the concierge who let us know before we arrived that a hotel car was available to pick us up at the ferry, saving us the cost of a taxi. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff made sure everything was satisfactory. We were upgraded to a suite which was a nice perk. Some minor quibbles: like in many other old hotels, the bathroom was small; we were on the second floor above the entrance and noise and unwanted light were problems (we had to keep the bathroom door closed to keep out light but were unable to close the drapes in the bedroom) and there is an underlying odour (more in the halls, less in the rooms). Overall an excellent stay, however.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the main street

I stayed for business in the Sorrento for one night and experienced the Fireside Room for the 1st night and then again prior to leaving Seattle late on the last night. From the time I arrived at the hotel, I was met with 1st class service where nothing was too much trouble. Their guys at the concierge were magic - they knew where to recommend restuarants and bars then even offered to drop us off and also pick us up after we did some shopping - rather then get a cab back to the hotel. Great location in the heart of the city.
Friendly people, gorgeous hotel and the Fireside room is just lovely when the Seattle weather is not so great, food was fabulous and winelist recommendations were spot on. This is a true gem, understated elegance and professional warm genuine service. I wish I could've stayed longer than just a night.

My wife and I just pent 4 nights at this beautiful hotel. The service was very friendly and accommodating. We had a junior suite that was perfect in size, comfort and decorating. I highly recommend this hotel. The food at the Hunt Club was very good and we ate at the bar as the restaurant was empty.

We stayed here on a business/pleasure trip. We stayed in room 311. Our room was beautiful. However, the bathroom was built for a short person, because the toilet is so close to the wall, that one must sit side-ways. The bed was very comfortable, complete with luxurious sheets and pillows. There is some street noise that may bother light-sleepers. The valet and desk staff are all very professional and helpful. This is a great place for honeymoons and special occasions!

Thank you for sharing a review about your recent stay with us. As you noted, some of our bathrooms are very compact, but similar to what you find in vintage style hotels. Come and see us on your next trip to Seattle. My best, Sam Johnson

I had a horrible travel day getting here, but the staff at the Sorrento is amazing. Hotel and room are beautiful, luxurious and comfortable. Staff is so kind and it is obvious that they enjoy working here.

This is what a hotel SHOULD be!
