My husband and I were invited to dinner at El Gaucho with some friends and we decided to stay the night at the Inn as well. David took really good care of our room booking and even fixed a dinner reservation mix up. When we arrived we were greeted by Emily who was so very sweet and personable. There was... More

We spent our wedding anniversary at this delightful boutique Inn. Sandy was outstanding. She was helpful, friendly, and made us feel special. She made reservations for our anniversary dinner and let them know it was a special night. The Inn is quaint and it felt like we were in the 1950's. Just what we wanted...a unique place that wasn't a... More

I stayed at El Gaucho for three nights. The last two were quite interesting as they decided to do some work in the kitchen downstairs (the hotel is on top of a restaurant that they also own) which was followed by some chemical smell coming through the ventilation system. After the first bumpy night we were told this won't happen... More

Sandy, at the front desk made me feel like I was with family. She is so amazing and wonderful. I had the luxury of staying in room 8. Very comfortable. I would definitely stay again mainly because of Sandy. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.

We had booked the Inn at El Gaucho for 4 nights, but ended up staying there for just 2, without having a single night of decent sleep. The first night we stayed there construction work started in the kitchen at 11:30 pm and continued until 3:30 am in the morning. The construction work as followed by a terrible smell which... More

The hotel is in a great location, close to good restaurants, cafes and favourite Seattle sights. We loved our room with the couch and easy chair and made good use of the lounge by the front desk where they had wine and little snacks and we met other travellers. The funky movie theatre in the basement has cushy seats and... More

I discovered Inn at El Gaucho years ago and have enjoyed every stay since. There are a number of interesting boutique hotels downtown; yet I still enjoy making a visit to the Inn for it’s coziness and consistently excellent and warm service. The entire staff is welcoming – in particular Sandy was a true gem on my last trip, organizing... More

Great location, just a short walk from many of the sights and restaurants on your list. Very comfortable junior suite, decorated in a 50s swank style. Hospitality staff are very warm and friendly. Would recommend, and will definitely return.
