Well it was our final morning on board the Wonder, and we were scheduled for a 7:15 am breakfast. We literally rolled the kids out of bed in their Pjs and headed to Parrot Cay for our final meal with Disney. It was a traditional breakfast of eggs, bacon, and hash brown for me. None of the other food was fancy as they were preparing for a second …
... family reunion for my beautiful niece Eva's wedding. It was a perfectly wonderful wedding in a park and the reception was in a museum in the park. Our family is spread all over the states and it getting together for such a happy occasion was a big treat.
Washington state is simply beautiful. I could blather on about the gorgeous blue waters, pine covered hills, snow-topped mountains, amazing ...
... breakfast, we set off to explore one of Seattle’s finest attractions: Pike Place market. We saw fish shops, bakeries, meat stores, art shops, and many other types of vendors selling their wares. We stopped for lunch at a nice Yelp French restaurant called Maximilien’s, which is one of the few that offer outdoor seating. We are having phenomenal weather in Seattle, without a cloud in the sky, and a high of about 80. Perfect. We bought some ...
... journey down to Waterfront and then back through the station I’d been looking for all along, finally arrived at Pacific Central to board my Greyhound bus. Whilst getting off I had to negotiate the many dragon boat paddlers who had their oars to hand poised for Vancouver’s dragon boat festival; as they failed to move when I said my kindest 'excuse me’ I felt like turning around and reminding them that I was a proper rower, but I held ...

I see that a replacement Boeing 787 will be flown up to SEA from IAH at 5:30 a.m. CDT (3:30 PDT) tomorrow so we can continue on our way to Tokyo at 9:30 PDT. The broken 787 I was on today has been removed from service.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Sorrento Hotel Seattle
The Sorrento Hotel is a lovely property. Once again, the Preferred Hotels of the World, seal has helped me gain trust in their seal of approval. This is my second stay in a Preferred hotel and both times I have been very impressed my stay, the overall look and feel of the hotel, and the service. The Sorrento even though a historic property was the lap of luxury on the inside and while tucked away in your cozy bed at night you forgot you were in an older property. I think if some other hotel chains had this property then you would not have the same ambience, character and luxury that you currently experience as a Sorrento guest.
Ambience and charm
Having read other's reviews, my husband and I made it a point to visit this lovely hotel even though we were guests at another. The hotel, we were told, was built in 1909, and the decor reflects this era. Red, velvet, lots of woodwork - -very elegant. We didn't have dinner at the Hunt Club, but just had to stay for martinis and appetizers. Had a wonderful appetizer featuring imported meats from Salumi, which is owned by Chef Mario Batali's dad. Service was friendly and first rate, and we both appreciated the more sedate and dignified atmosphere and clientele. We enjoyed it so much we returned a second night to experience it all over again. Definitely worth seeing and experiencing.
There comes a time when a hotel is praised so much that it can't possibly live up to its advance billing. I almost wish I hadn't read so much about the Sorrento before I arrived, because I was expecting perfection!
This is my first hotel review - although I travel quite a bit for business and vacations. I had to write this review (although very late!) because of the outstanding experience we had at the Sorrento Hotel in Seattle, WA.
Wonderful Hotel, Wonderful Service!
my husband and I stayed in the sorrento, based on the message boards here. we asked for a junior suite since everyone said the rooms are small. we're glad we did that. the bed was soooooo comfy and the bath was cute, well lighted and included all the necessities. the robes are great--women will love them. everywhere we did business in the hotel during our 4 day stay, we were treated beautifully by everyone. the restaurant is great, service perfect. the lobby and the furnishings throughout are so historical. it's a 'must do'.
try to leave your car at home. they don't have much parking area but their towne car is a luxury!
My husband and I just stayed for a week at the Sorrento Hotel in Seattle. We stayed in the Sorrento Suite (call direct for great rates, better than Orbitz or Expedia). The service at the hotel is top notch - we lost our luggage the first day and the concierge was very accommodating with items that we requested. Room service was quick and the food from the Hunt Club was excellent. The only negative about the hotel is that the suites are small with VERY small bathrooms. The beds are heavenly - there is quite a bit of street noise, but the beds are so comfortable you will sleep right through it. If you are looking for a quiet, old hotel with lots of charm and great service we definitely recommend the Sorrento Hotel. Stay away from the cafe right across the street - worse breakfast I have ever had in my life!
The Sorrento can't be beat!!
The Sorrento is the best! Top-notch, first-class, cream of the crop..... whatever you want to call it..... this hotel can't be beat! The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! The staff were exceptional, so accomodating, helpful and friendly!! The hotel is just wonderful in all aspects. If you are in Seattle, you must stay here!!!
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay at The Sorrento. I booked this hotel because of the glowing reviews listed here at TripAdvisor. At first, we were a little surprised by the small size of our standard room. We expected that for the money we paid, the room would be considerably larger. Then we experienced the fabulous Sorrento staff and first-rate service and forgot all about the size of our room!
Fabulous, will definately go back, First Class
This hotel was wonderful. I can not fault the standard of the service or the hotel itself. This was a surprise for my boyfriend as I planned to propose and the staff could not have helped more and made the event extremely special. We are planning to go back as part of our honeymoon!!
I would reccommend this to anyone who wants a romantic trip away somewhere really special.
Despite being situated away from the main tourist areas, the hotel offer a complimentary car service into Downtown.
