Reframe: First Hill’s Hotel Sorrento

November 7th, 2008 @ 12:01 am by Cliffe | Sorted Reframe |
It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a Reframe photo comparo — so I’ve picked out one of my favorite hotels in the city.

The Italian mission-style Hotel Sorrento was built in 1908 and advertised as “the hotel in the heart of things.” Home to Seattle’s first rooftop restaraunt, the view these days is limited by tall skyscrapers but still impressive.

The Post-Intelligencer ran a story about the hotel in March. The structure finally went up for landmark nomination brought by current owner and preservationist Michael Malone. So let’s take a look at the Reframe — first in 1912 and then the current day shots. Click for higher-res copies.

    I wish more modern hotels looked like this!

  2. striatic says:

    looked better without the trees, i think.

  3. It’s great to see it’s been so well preserved. So many of these comparisons end up with a parking lot or a condo in the “now”.

  4. Matt the Engineer says:

    The article says it used to have a formal garden on the roof. It sounds like Seattle has quite a history of “green roofs”.

  5. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this put up and if I may I want to counsel you few attention-grabbing issues or suggestions. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read more issues about it!| book cheap flight http://www.funtraveldeals.com/book-flights/
