This 76-room, seven story Mediterranean hotel features a lovely multi-colored brick exterior decorated with elegant touches of terra cotta. I always enjoy looking at this tiny hotel with its delicate patterns of terra cotta.
The darkly-paneled lobby is perfect for enjoying a cup of tea (for which the Hotel is famous) or sipping a glass of wine. The lobby opens onto the front courtyard with its water fountain.
The Sorrento is just a short stroll from St. James Cathedral and the Frye Art Museum. Enjoy your walk around First Hill.
