    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.

    My husband and I found the Hotel Sorrento by chance after driving by it one evening. After looking into the venue and contacting the staff we were so excited to set our date and plan our wedding there - the venue is beautiful inside and out and was exactly the old Italian style I wanted for my wedding. The staff was absolutely wonderful to work with - Andrea worked with us one-on-one for a year and was responsive and accommodating to all of our needs. They even designed a special menu to work with our food budget. The venue was so impressive as was the staff leading up to and throughout the wedding. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting a beautiful yet affordable wedding in the city!
