From first phone call to book room to the time we left, the staff was amazing. I love to eat at restaurant so I thought I would try hotel. Same great service as restaurant. The rooms were very comfortable and we could see the sound. Would definitely stay again.

LOVED this hotel. The front desk staff were welcoming and very helpful. The room design efficiently uses all space! It was very clean and our room had a window out onto a tiny courtyard. I stayed there with a friend and my son - he had a rollaway bed and my friend and I shared the double. We had a... More

We've been wanting to visit Seattle and we chose Inn at El Gaucho for our anniversary trip for 4 nights during July 4th weekend. It was a great choice. While the hotel may be lacking in typical amenities, it pretty much made it up with its charm and character. Upon checked in we're welcomed with 2 tasty cookies and we... More

Nice size rooms. The staff goes over and above to meet your needs. Within walking distance from Seattle Center and Pike Place Market. Nice added touches like chocolate chip cookies upon arrival, Keurig coffee in rooms, and nightly happy hour.

Great vibe and a wonderful staff. The location is perfect and you don't have to fight the hills. Highly recommend spending time in the restaurant - either for a dinner or a 9pm happy hour at the bar. There is also a 5pm-7pm happy hour upstairs in the lobby with free wine.

Great location. Room pretty cool...except for the HOLE IN OUR SHEET. Not the most expensive joint in town ($$$) but certainly not among the cheapest. Above average cost (In my opinion.) for a junior suite... at almost $600 for two nights...but goodness gracious... at least NOTICE the hole in the sheet - RIGHT BELOW THE PILLOW LEVEL. Staff should also... More

A very nice renovated older hotel with a lot of modern touches. The staff is very friendly and helpful with a personal touch. In our room we received fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and a personal greeting card. Keurig coffee available all day and wine served in the evening. The bed were very comfortable and the room was very clean.... More

Entire bride's family took over hotel for wedding weekend. Service was excellent, friendly and professional. Lobby was warm and inviting for family gabfests. David (manager) went out of his way to make our celebration gathering wonderful. We have stayed at the Inn before and will be there many times in the future.
