Emily made us feel like we were part of the family. We travel all over the world and have never a hotel host go the extra mile like she did. The room was large and had everything needed. The only glitch is there is no elevator, but the room was on the second floor so that was no not a... More

OMG my Boyfriend and I absolutely LOVE this place. The hotel is set up to feel like you went back in time to the 50's, they did an amazing job at that. The hotel staff were very very very friendly and helpful. From the Valet boys in the door way to the staff up at the check in desk. We... More

4 night stay. Wonderful service. We came into town on a Sunday and it wasn't busy. We came several hours early and the desk clerk was super nice. She offered us a choice of rooms and stored our luggage when we went for lunch. Very clean spacious and comfortable. It is our last evening here and we had a fantastic... More

Not knowing what to expect, we were extremely pleased with our stay at the Inn at El Gaucho! The staff were very helpful and friendly, the room was comfortable and clean, and the location was ideal. After dinner, we enjoyed a movie in the 21 and over theatre, Big Picture, located beneath the hotel and restaurant. I would love to... More

Cute boutique hotel well-situated within walking distance to the Space Needle, Pike's Market and tons of bars and restaurants. The staff was super friendly and gave us good recommendations for places to check out in the neighborhood. Nice seating area in the lobby with a fireplace and "happy hour." When we pointed out the wine was empty, the front-desk person... More

This was my first time staying at El Gaucho and I would stay there again without hesitation. Really clean, quiet, wine in the lobby every day, close to a lot of interesting stuff. I took light rail from airport to Westlake Station (downtown) for $2.50. Walked from station to the hotel (1 mile). El Gaucho is in a lively part... More

Loved this Inn! So glad we took a chance. Very well priced and the room was very comfortable. Also is in a great location. Walking distance to Pikes Market. The restaurant downstairs was amazing as well. Also shoutout to Sandy for making our stay extra special. We'll be back!

The place is awesome! A great boutique hotel in the heart of Belltown and just steps away from all the great downtown shops and sites. It's off the tourist path which makes it less busy and less noisy. The staff is great, accommodating any need. Friendly, warm, and valet service too. Rooms are cozy and the beds soft! Room #5...
