Sorrento luxury hotels are in good supply, so visitors who fancy elevated service and excellent amenities should have little trouble finding an ideal travel base. Add in the fact that there are some pretty amazing vacation rentals in Sorrento, and it becomes even clearer that discerning travelers can feel right at home in this delightfully picturesque town.
When it comes to the 5 star Sorrento hotels, all discussions should begin with the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria. Worthy of being labeled as one of the very best hotels in Italy, this impressive retreat enjoys a park-like setting right in the center of town. If the surrounding park isn't enough to get guests in a relaxed frame of mind, there is a holistic spa on the premises, and comfort certainly isn't lacking in the sumptuous guest units. Marble-accented baths come standard, and many of the guest units boast a private balcony or terrace that affords for immaculate views of the Gulf of Naples. In addition to the spa, the facilities at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria include two enticing restaurants, an elegant bar, a more casual pool bar, and an attractive outdoor pool. Event space that can be used for things such as corporate meetings and wedding receptions are also available.
Travelers who are interested in the 5 star Sorrento hotels can also add the Bellevue Syrene (pictured) to their lists of prospective places to stay. Stunning views of the Gulf of Naples and famed Mt Vesuvius can be enjoyed from many a vantage point at the amazing Bellevue Syrene, and that's just the start when it comes to things that guests can indulge in. Historical charm and modern convenience mix splendidly at this upscale hotel, and the pastel hues found throughout are exceptionally soothing. In the summer, guests can take an elevator down to the sea and sunbathe on the hotel's private sunbathing deck, and regardless of the time of year, the two onsite restaurants can be fine places to dine. The Bellevue Syrene also offers an inviting spa, and all kinds of snacks and beverages are on offer in the relaxed Club Lounge between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Should the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria and the Bellevue Syrene be fully booked, discerning travelers can turn to the 4 star Sorrento hotels.

Thanks to renovation efforts, the guest units at the Grand Hotel Royal are quite modern and the conveniences are many. Standard in-room amenities include flat-screen TVs with satellite programming, mini bars, and safes to store valuables in. That's just the start when it comes to the in-room amenities, and many units feature high-quality marquetry furniture, not to mention fine Italian marble in the bathroom. As is true of other top hotels in Sorrento, the Grand Hotel Royal offers a private elevator that can take guests down to the seashore.
