Seattle has soooo many choice hotels to choose from but NONE have a world-class steakhouse below and a wonderful small, intimate theatre below that. The Inn at El Gaucho was started as a place for guests to stay and "continue the evening" after dinner. The owner realized that guests would like somewhere close to relax and have some wine and...

My husband, sister, and I visited Seattle last week and stayed at El Gaucho for 3 nights. We chose it for its good location in the Belltown area of Seattle, solid TA reviews, and great rates. We were more than satisfied. The online reservation process (direct through the hotel website) went smoothly. The rooms were spacious and lovely, the bed... More

We will be back next year, what a great hotel in the Belltown area. Walking distance to the Key Arena, Pikes Market and wonderful restaurants. We loved the 50s look and vibe of the Inn at El Gaucho, plus the nightly wine tasting. The hotel was quiet, the staff was friendly and helpful.

I stayed at The Inn at El Gaucho this past week for three nights. I was very excited to get such a good deal in the downtown area. My stay ended up costing me a little over $300 with tax for 3 nights. I was able to walk to Pike Place, the Space Needle and many other Seattle attractions with... More

Returned to El Gaucho during my last visit to Seattle for all the reasons detailed in my earlier reviews. Funky, friendly spot with great staff. Wonderful neighborhood, great amenities just the kind of place I strive to find whenever I travel. Thank you David and crew!

This was my first stay with David and his helpful staff at the Inn at El Gaucho. I plan to return and ensure I have more time to spend enjoying the room and Inn itself. They offer nice wines in the afternoon/evening that I would have loved to sampled more of. The red that greeted me upon my arrival was... More
