Charming boutique hotel with friendly staff members
Slightly removed from Seattle's top attractions
The Sorrento Hotel, built in 1909, is the oldest boutique hotel in Seattle. The vintage property is full of charming details like wrought-iron gates, a palm tree-laden courtyard and the cozy, eight-sided Fireside Room where guests can sit and relax. And classy extras like live jazz and traditional high tea help create an elegant atmosphere. Some recent travelers complain about the uphill commute to the hotel's First Hill neighborhood. When it's time to retire to your digs for the night, you'll find fully stocked honor bars, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, 400-thread-count linens and complimentary wireless internet access.

  • Frommer's Exceptional



If you're the type who owns a smoking jacket, names aged Scotch as your poison, or wants to pretend you're on the set of a period piece, look no further than this Italianate hotel built in 1909 — though guest rooms are as light as the common areas are dark, with only a few tasseled pillows and antique furnishings.

Coastal Living


Inside its original mahogany-lined gathering rooms, guests are pampered with afternoon tea, entertained with live performances, and showered with classic cocktails and local fare.
