Hotel Sorrento’s Health & Safety Commitment Action Plan

Our Promise to Keep Our Guests and Associates Safe


Dear Guests, 



Hotel Sorrento has been committed to creating personalized and memorable experiences for our guests since 1909. Now, more than ever, our focus on our guests' experience with regards to health, safety, and cleanliness is our top priority. 

This is not a mere aspiration. It’s an action plan. For the wellbeing of our guests, associates, and our community, our promise is to put our 111 years of experience, passion for hospitality, and energy into increasing the standards of cleanliness on our property. 

To deliver on this promise every day, our Hygiene and Sanitation Manager will lead a Safety Committee program responsible for training, implementation and compliance. In addition, we’re closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization’s recommendations regarding COVID-19, and will continue to follow their guidelines, as well as those from local health departments. We are also committed to following Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Plan for Washington State.

Our commitment is not just for our guests.We are also holding the same cleanliness and sanitation standards in the heart of house (“backstage”), to keep our associates safe and healthy. Below, we have included our outlined commitments for each area of the Hotel and Restaurant.

Should any questions, concerns, or additional accomodations arise, please do not hesitate to email us at or call us at 206-622-6400.
