Built in 1909, the Sorrento Hotel remains Seattle’s oldest boutique hotel. Its current owners restored the property in the 1980s, and kept much of its original charm. The Sorrento Hotel’s Fireside Room features the original mahogany paneling and fireplace, making it a favorite spot for cocktails in Seattle. Service is attentive. The hotel boasts a ratio of 1.3 staffers for every guest, which helped it earn AAA’s 4 diamond award.
Rooms
The Sorrento Hotel offers 76 guest rooms on six floors. All rooms feature traditional furnishings and marble baths. Suites on higher floors offer city views. Other guest room amenities include custom-made Sealy mattresses, 400 threat-count Egyptian cotton linens and wireless Internet service. Guests receive complimentary coffee service and a copy of The Seattle Times each morning.
Property features
The Sorrento Hotel considers itself a place for Seattleites to gather as well as out-of-towners. The Fireside Room, resplendent with vintage mahogany paneling and a vast green-tiled fireplace, makes a cozy place to meet friends or colleagues. The Fireside Room also offers afternoon tea. The Hunt Club specializes in hearty takes on Pacific Northwest cuisine. For food for thought, Sorrento Hotel hosts Night School, a salon-like series featuring local artists, chefs and writers.

Dining

Fireside Room
The depth of character found in the Sorrentos Fireside Room cant be manufactured; its gotta be earned. Swathed in ochre mahogany paneling, furnished in eclectic midcentury-modern, outfitted with a baby grand piano and encircling a wide, octagonal central column, the Fireside Room is a throwback to more elegant times. During the day, it serves as a luxe office space, with power outlets, WiFi, and coffee and tea service for small meetings.
Dunbar Room
From 1961 to 64, the Sorrento dining room was known as the Dunbar Room. Were proud to restore the name and begin a new chapter of the Sorrento story with a new menu and new team featuring head chef Seth Caswell and hospitality specialist Jared Meisler. With the Dunbar Room, Caswell and Meisler have created a relaxed, refined environment in a bright but cozy space reminiscent of a Parisian train-station bistro or midtown Manhattan caf. As the bustle of the hotel carries on outside, the Dunbar remains a sanctuary, relaxed in attitude but attentive in service. Our dinner menu features the freshest Northwest seafood pulled from the Puget Sound and the Pacific, grass-fed beef and sustainably raised pork and poultry, and produce sourced from farms across Washington State. Our bar list emphasizes our favorite local wines, beers and spirits "plus our own house-made amaro" alongside preferred liquors and vintages from around the world.

Sorrento Hotel - a disappointment

I traveled to Washington as planned and booked a room at the Sorrento Hotel as part of my package. When I arrived at check-in I was told that I was being billed upfront an additional $100.00 that was not reflected in my booking information for incidentals that were not yet utilized. I refused to pay for an additional cost that was not reflected at booking and the staff refused to check me in despite the room already being paid for. I have been staying at the Sorrento off and on for 25-years and was treated poorly. With staff that was indifferent, rude and actually smug. I left and booked and stayed at another hotel and spent an additional $150.00. It was no the money but, the unquoted additional cost at reservation. Budget car rental had an quoted additional cost of $225.00 in which I gladly paid and actually upgraded to a more expensive care. Sorrento - poor management, poor customer service and, staff that did not match the quality or history of the hotel itself or my previous experiences as a Seattle resident. A 25-year customer that will never set foot in the lobby again. Horrible experience.

The outside patio makes you feel that you could be sitting in Paris. We enjoyed lunch and happy hour our entire stay. The food was amazing and the drinks were very creative and delicious. We came to town to take care of business and looked forward to unwinding at the hotel at the end of the day.

It was a little farther from the attractions than I wanted to be, but an amazing hotel with a great staff and interesting history.

Clean and convenient

Had a great stay at this hotel. Quiet with small details that make it quite charming. I also thought the location was excellent. And they have free ice cream in the evenings.

Classy, historic hotel

We needed a place close to Tula's, Jazz Alley, and the Triple Door. So the Sorrento was perfect, parking was handy, and we could walk to the Triple Door in 10 minutes. Very comfortable rooms, the coffee press and bar fridge were handy, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We will return!

Business Trip and Friendly Visit

I loved the beautiful vintage feel of the hotel. Despite the age, the amenities were great and I was a couple blocks from the conference. I'd definitely stay again for leisure travel.

What's Right with Sorrento

Excellent throw-back to a better time when one could find a place to ignore the NFL. Accomplishable here. Staff was most accommodating with responses that are rare. "We will be right there", "your car will be right up" we will bring you a couple of wine glasses immediately". You begin to relax the moment you sense that you will be taken care of, and you are. Thank you
