We would definitely stay here again. The location is perfect, at most a 10 minute walk to the major tourist attractions (Space Needle, Pikes Market). The staff is friendly and helpful. We had a suite with a large sitting area so we could spread out. The bed was very comfortable with a pillow top, nice linens too. The building is... More

Stayed here for only one night and it was lovely. Staff was very friendly and helpful with any request that I had. The room was very clean and had a lot of character. Not to far of a walk to Pikes Market, wonderful places to eat and shopping. Give it a go well worth it.

I really wanted to love El Gaucho. And I think other conditions it would have been great. It is in a good neighborhood for food and site seeing in Seattle. The rooms are big and the bed is comfortable. I went to Local 360 both nights for dinner, which was wonderful. The bakery Macrina nearby serves a great variety of... More

Very comfortable, boutique, Belltown hotel. Caught the light rail from SeaTac, about 1/2 hour trip to Westlake Center. Monorail to Seattle Center there as well. Just under a mile to walk to Inn. Comfortable beds, wonderful amenities, cookies on arrival, wine available in the evenings. Very welcoming front desk ready to assist. This hotel is on the second floor, so... More

My fiance and I stayed at The El Gauch for a quick get-away. The Inn is located in a great part of Seattle. It's got a cool vibe that is refreshing compared to the cookie-cutter experience you get in a standard hotel. However, the bed wasn't that comfortable, but I'm spoiled with an excellent mattress at home & this is... More

This was a delightful hotel! The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The room was lovely and the bed very comfortable. Very clean. Lots of comfy pillows! Two delicious chocolate cookies along with a personalized letter awaited me when I arrived. Free wine between 5-7pm! When I walked into the room, classical music was playing on the Bose system. Easy... More

We lucked out with the Inn at el Gaucho when booking on Hotwire! We took the light rail from the airport, got off at the westlake station and then walked to the hotel from the station. We had all of our luggage and the walk was only about 15 minutes. The friendly man at the desk let us check in... More

Wonderful stay..classy boutique hotel with sultry, sexy 50's theme located above El Gaucho Steak restaurant with live piano in the lounge.

Service excellent, and 24hrs. a day. very helpful in restaurant suggestions and getting transportation to/from SEATAC and Boeing Field for Air & Space Museum.

I've never been to a hotel before where I spent so much time chatting with the staff. Sandy at the front desk is one of the nicest people I've met, and was so very helpful when I needed to repair some clothing that ripped. She quickly got me not one, but two sewing kits with pre-threaded needles of various colors.... More

We have been staying here since Wednesday. First of all, the room is gorgeous. The bed is quite huge and comfy, the color of the room is soft, and the furniture is clean. There are very few rooms which makes for a quiet stay. It's within walking distance of almost everything in downtown Seattle, including the Pike Place Market. Our... More
