Checking in was fast and we had fresh baked cookies waiting for us in the room! This is a great location with street parking, and they provide valet parking, though we parked on the street for free (after 8pm). Our room was quiet, clean, spacious, with a large leather couch/ seating area, and it had the most comfortable pillows we've... More

Had a "Daddy-Daughter" spring break excursion to Seattle. Raven, John, Kendall and David made our stay very enjoyable. Our Jr Suite was reasonably-priced, nicely-sized, the bed was comfortable and fresh cookies were a nice touch. Belltown location is very convenient -walking distance to Seattle Center and Pikes Market. A block from Macrina Bakery and Local360 restaurant (both recommended). We walked... More

Not only is the location awesome and the hotel itself unique and comfy, but the staff really rocked. In particular, Kendall, Raven, and another guy (blanking on his name but I think John) were super friendly and helpful. They made sure my stay was relaxing, well-stocked, and fun. The free wine every evening in the lobby was excellent as well.... More

Stayed in room #10- a junior suite. Queen bed with living area. Clerestory windows facing north. and north window that looks out onto a small courtyard. Bathroom has no tub - typical for hotels of this vintage. Mattress is new and nice. Liked the down duvet but could do without the mascara stains. Valet parking upwards of thirty, but we... More

A different hotel, quirky but a refreshing change to the chains. Good location for Pike market and city centre shops. Comfy beds and spacious room. Some of the decor in need of refurbishment. Had booked a queen suite with view of Puget Sound but message hadn't got to the hotel so ended up in a standard room which was fine.... More

Our experience with the Inn at El Gaucho had everything you'd expect from a hotelr. Our room was very clean and extremely comfortable. The hotel staff was SO accommodating and even retrieved stuff from our Valet'd car so we would't have to venture out in the rare snowy Seattle day. The wine tasting in the lobby was great; the handwritten... More

My partner and I stayed here for our first trip to Seattle and loved it! The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff (front desk especially) was fantastic, very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was good and they do have a vegetarian menu (just make sure to ask). The location is perfect, fast access to downtown areas and quick... More

Great escape in the middle of the city. Bed was an amazing mountain of down and pillows. They had a sofa instead of the too often unused dresser. Loved the bevarage maker. Little trouble getting tv to work only hiccup.
