The Best Meeting Ever

Isn’t that what you want people to say after a meeting? At the Sorrento, we believe meetings should be memorable, not forgettable (or even the same as last year’s!). That’s why we offer a variety of “lessons” to complement your meeting and make the day fun, inspiring and memorable.

Drinking Lessons

The Sorrento is famous for our Drinking Lessons. These cocktail education and preparation classes are a great way to end an afternoon meeting, giving people a chance to socialize, build relationships and learn. We customize each Drinking Lesson with local wine, beer or liquor tastings, covering the history and preparation of spirits and libations. Fun – and interesting!

Comes with:

  • Daily meeting room
  • Complimentary Internet
  • Complimentary parking
  • Choice tastings of Washington State wines, beers or distilleries
  • Menu pairing small bites to compliment your tastings

Tourist Lessons

Want to inspire and motivate? Get them out of the meeting room. With our Tourist Lessons, attendees become tourists in our own city, participating in activities they don’t often do on their own. We’ve partnered with Citypass to give you a wide variety of venues to explore: the iconic Space Needle, the Seattle Aquarium, an Argosy Harbor Cruise, the Experience Music Project or Woodland Park Zoo and the Pacific Science Center or the Museum of Flight. Leave it to us: our team will coordinate the schedules and passes to help you create a memorable day in the city for your attendees. After a fun day of sightseeing, we invite you to come back to the Sorrento for a well-deserved cocktail in the Fireside Lounge, where everyone can relax and regale in tales of the day.

Comes with:

  • Daily meeting room
  • Complimentary Internet
  • Complimentary parking
  • Choice venue passes, bottled water and trail mix for the road
  • Complimentary happy hour cocktail in the Fireside Lounge upon your return

History Lessons

Call it a Fireside Chat. This is a huge favorite of meeting attendees, who love hearing about the Emerald City. We gather everyone around the elegant fireplace in our Fireside Lounge, while a well-known Seattle historian entertains people with stories about how the city began and how far we have come. Classic cocktails and small bites are served as people learn about early Seattle architecture, downtown parks and neighborhoods. We’re happy to coordinate schedules and discussion topics to help you create a unique afternoon or evening break during your event. After all, as the longest-running boutique hotel in Seattle, we know a little something about history!

Comes with:

  • Daily meeting room
  • Complimentary Internet
  • Complimentary parking
  • Complimentary happy hour cocktail and happy hour snacks
