8.2 Very good
Pros:Bed very comfy beds. The place is very modern & well taken care of
Cons:Knowing it would be 20 dollars a day to park. & that you couldn’t take your own drinks to the pool Also our room by the parking garage on the mail level was very loud.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Extremely friendly staff and hard working door/valet. Rooms are quiet. Many with a great view. Perfect place to stay when looking to explore the plaza.
Cons:Wine list in main bar needs to be improved.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The staff at Hotel Sorella went out of their way to help me when I became very ill during trip. Their chef made me special soup, and the banquet manager even drove me to the hospital when that eventually occurred. The front desk did everything they could to accommodate my needs as I could not leave my room. While my business trip was ruined due to the illness, they made it a lot more comfortable. I would come here again and again!
6.5 Okay
Cons:Was asked for my room key as proof that I was staying in at the hotel. Was later informed by an employee that the individual that asked for proof that I was staying at the hotel did not ask the Caucasian individuals who were staying at the hotel. Will never go back.
9.7 Wonderful
Cons:Being unfamilar with the area, I opted for the valet parking for our stay. When I ventured out from the hotel to the Country Club Plaza area 1.5 blocks away, I found a large free parking garage! Won't make that mistake again if I ever go back there.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Nice place. Good location.
Cons:Valet expense.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We had a great weekend at Hotel Sorella! All of the staff was great! Especially enjoyed the staff at breakfast. Simone was over the top friendly! We had a group of international students in attendance with us and she made them all feel right at home.
