Hotel Sorrento was built at the turn of the 20th century and is considered an iconic Seattle boutique hotel. At the time of its opening, the Fireside Room was the Seattle gathering place for locals and high-powered individuals such as President Taft, the Vanderbilt’s, and Guggenheims, to converse.

Located in First Hill, the hotel is in a quiet area but still very accessible to entertainment, Capitol Hill nightlife, and city center attractions like the Columbia Center's Sky View Observatory and Elliott Bay. The popular Town Hall performance venue and Frye Art Museum is only three blocks away. The Washington State Convention Center, Westlake Center, Seattle Center, Space Needle, Aquarium, and Pike Place Market are all also nearby.

Hotel Sorrento’s main features revolve around drinking and dining. The Dunbar Room offers locally sourced seasonal dishes for all meals, while the elegant Fireside Room lounge hosts live music, performances, and silent reading parties. The hotel also offers a small, 24-hour fitness center and business center, a barber shop/salon, and a massage room but not a spa. The Sorrento also has a dedicated concierge, free shoeshine service, meeting rooms, same-day laundry services, and free Wi-Fi.

There are 75 individually decorated, elegant rooms and suites at Hotel Sorrento that offer hipster charm and modern comforts. There are several room categories, including suites with huge bathrooms and gorgeous furniture. All rooms offer plush beds, free Wi-Fi, minibars, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, French Press coffeemakers, and more necessary conveniences.

The history of the hotel and the unique details make Hotel Sorrento charming and historic. From top- notch service to top-notch quality of everything from brunch to toiletries, the hotel is one-of-a-kind.

2.5 Bad
Cons:No one tell me the expensive overnight fees and they gave me a different room
7.7 Good
Pros:Great location and staff.
Cons:Small single elevator Room/bathroom could use updating
10.0 Excellent
Pros:From the moment we pulled up to the hotel, the service was fantastic. Jerry helped us with our bags, showed us around the hotel--giving a great history of the décor, and then walked us up to our room. He gave us advice on where to go and what to do. The staff at the desk and the bar were just as attentive and kind. The room was the perfect size for the two of us, and all necessary items were stocked and clean. It was a great visit!
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:Front desk was so nice
Cons:Hotel felt tired and was smelly
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Old charm with all the comforts
8.8 Great
Pros:restaurant and service
Cons:Noisy courtyard, thin walls
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Very quite and friendly. Jerry was awesome this place is so nice will be back again
9.4 Excellent
Pros:I liked being welcomed at the door by 3 people. The rug in the elevator was an unexpected treat and photo op. The room was plush. The bar was a relaxing place for a drink and dinner which was very good. It was also good to find parking nearby on the street.
Cons:I didn't like that I wasn't told that there would be an incindental charge on my card for possible expenses incurred in the room. The next day I saw the charge and called the hotel and was then told why. She said it was something we should have been informed of. The charge "fell off" the next day.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:I stay at a hotels a lot and what I normally consider a great experience is when a hotel does a great job of alleviating the inconvenience of not being at my own house with my own stuff and kitchen. But the sorrento is a whole other thing. It's effing fabulous. I felt instantly relaxed and at home, if my home were a huge gilded age mansion. The food is wonderful, the staff is very available, the lobby area- I just wanted to hang out there and not go out. Even the courtyard, which is on a busy street, was like a cocoon. The whole experience was like being in another better world. AND there was tons of free street parking within a 2 blocks radius!
Cons:The one lame thing was there is only one elevator, but it is a genuinely old building, and what're you gonna do? It moved fast- you could tell they've made an effort to make it as speedy as possible. And it had a rug that said the day of the week! Which is more reassuring than you might think when you are travelling.
8.6 Great
Pros:The old feel of the hotel. I didn't get to stay outside the room much so most of my review is about that. I'm surprised based on the cost you don't get anything from the minibar. Even in the sweet it's basically a large room. The beds were nice and soft and the rooms were comfortable renovations. That still had old furnaces but the hot water never runs out. There are bathrobes to relax in.
Cons:The location seems to be in a bad part of town.
