Sorrento Hotel

900 Madison St, Seattle, WA 98104, USA

The Sorrento Hotel in Seattle, WA has been accepting guests since 1909. In the early days of the hotel’s existence, there weren’t any signs of apparitions or appearances. That changed when Alice B. Toklas died. She’s been seen haunting the halls of the Sorrento. Her family lived in the First Hill neighborhood in the late 1890s, which is where the Sorrento now stands. It’s thought that’s why she haunts the location.

Numerous people have seen a ghostly figure walking the halls in a flowing white gown. She’s especially visible on the fourth floor around room 408. Locals around the hotel have seen a strange looking woman with a parasol wandering around outside the hotel at night.

Some guests have seen glasses move in the bar area. One woman reported that she was sitting in the bar when she felt someone poke her gently in the back. Her husband was several feet away and no one else was near her.

Other guests have heard stomping footsteps in the hallway at all hours of the night. One guest reported that he would fall asleep only to wake up to screaming and yelling from the hallway. There have been cold spots in some of the rooms, phones not working and moving objects in some of the rooms.

    I stayed here. I was not aware of it being “haunted” but once I left I had to look it up. Some weird stuff went on in my room. I was awoken by all of my bags unpacked all over the room. I slept under the covers all night after that. Well… I didn’t really sleep all that much.

    Great hotel. I say it’s haunted for sure. I didn’t see anything like ghosts but when I woke up I swear things were moved around in my room and clothes that I packed away were out of my luggage. I was here on business and didn’t know of the hotel’s haunted history until I got home and searched. It’s a fun place to stay too, but the history makes it even more interesting.
