Nice older hotel, but very noisy
Reviewed 5 days ago

The Sorrento is a nice older Seattle hotel, and has restaurants, etc., at its doorstep. It's a great location if you don't want to stay right downtown, or if you have business at one of the nearby hospitals.

It was clean and the staff was courteous, and my suite was very large and spacious.

That said, the hotel smells "old", is old, and my second floor corner room was soooo noisy. I felt like I was sleeping on the street. The older style bathroom was nicely remodeled, but it was tiny, especially for a suite that sleeps 4-5 people; and the shower leaked through the curtain so much is got the outside room rug wet. So. I cannot highly recommend this Seattle hotel, though the value for the space was excellent.

Sad Truth

This hotel is in a great location, with classic charm and beauty. However with a 200 year old building updates need to be made. I should have hot water at any time of the day specially late night when most people are sleeping. Issues with random charges and fees not discussed please check your receipts. There is no way the hotel does not know about these issues but have obviously not done anything to fix them. Its because this could be a gem to stay at but was not. However their cleaning service was ON POINT!

Rich History. Real Value. Super Cute. Great Team.

Found myself in Seattle unexpectedly and what a nice surprise - Hotel Sorrento. Thanks for the hospitality and elegant thoughtful style. Had a really great time falling into the history and mystery of the joint. Was built in 1908 or so, and the touches to the room is noticed.

Great experience
Reviewed 1 week ago

Hotel Sorrento was a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Seattle. It is convenient to great restaurants and shops. We got a junior suite because one of us is an earlier riser than the other. The doors to the room had slats in it, though, so light and sound came through to the bedroom. The bathroom was tiny, but it was manageable. Our biggest issues were noise (to be expected) and the room temperature. It got warm in the room, but since the building uses a boiler, all rooms had to either have heat of cool. We kept the windows open, which made it more bearable. The room was squeaky clean, and the staff were great.

No hot water - "its an old hotel"
Reviewed 1 week ago

A quick trip for business. Had no hot water in rooms during the evening and barely lukewarm in the morning. The staff's response was "well its an old hotel and lots of people are using it". They really could have cared less and offered no solutions. Another guest shared with us that he moved rooms twice due to this issue. Very disappointing.
