Lonely Planet review
William Howard Taft, 27th US president, was the first registered guest at the Sorrento, an imposing Italianate hotel known since its birth in 1909 as the jewel of Seattle. The combination of luxurious appointments, over-the-top service and a pervasive sense of class add up to a perfect blend of decadence and restraint.
The hotel’s restaurant, the Hunt Club, is worth a stop whether you’re staying here or not. Continental breakfast ($11) and a shuttle to the airport ($65) are among the extras on offer.
Our independent authors have visited Sorrento Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Capitol Hill.
