    Best Venue in Seattle!

    There are not enough words to express how wonderful the Hotel Sorrento team is and how beautiful the space was for our wedding day! Beside the timeless beauty and historical charm of Hotel Sorrento, the staff inside went above and beyond all expectations to make our wedding day incredibly special. The most remarkable aspect of this all was the fact that Hotel Sorrento helped us plan a whole new reception in six weeks. Due to COVID-19, we found ourselves without a reception venue and scrambling to understand any options we had. Hotel Sorrento kindly met with us as we discussed realistic options and expectations. It took us moments to decide to move forward with them because of the experience and dedication of their team. In the weeks leading up to the big day, they did not disappoint. The team was professional, prompt with communication, and sincerely invested in making our day amazing. They eased our minds with all normal logistics, but were always on top of the ever-changing COVID-19 guidelines and mandates. They implemented temperature checks, masks, social distancing and made our small group feel safe and healthy. Hotel Sorrento made the weeks beforehand stress-free and the day was beyond our wildest dreams! They worked with our vendors seamlessly and our only focus was getting married. The day was perfect and the dinner on the rooftop patio was amazing. The food and drinks were so delicious and the views of the city at sunset were even more beautiful than we imagined. Sue, Shannon, Tiffany, and Jason are the best in the industry and will make couples constantly feel taken care of. They truly prioritize their couples and showed us kindness and hospitality we didn't experience at other venues. Hotel Sorrento will forever have our sincerest gratitude. If they can make a wedding day this breathtaking in six weeks during a global pandemic, I can't even imagine how fantastic weddings will be when the world is back to normal. We cannot recommend Hotel Sorrento enough to future couples! They are beyond amazing!

    We had our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at the Hotel Sorrento and it was amazing! The staff was very professional and did a great job setting up both rooms. I would highly recommend this venue! There was change in staff last minute, but Andrea stepped right in and assured us that we would be taken care of and had nothing to worry about.
