Wonderful stay..classy boutique hotel with sultry, sexy 50's theme located above El Gaucho Steak restaurant with live piano in the lounge. Location great for walking to local restaurants, bakeries, Pike's Market, art museum, space needle. 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

Thanks to a lucky Hotwire snag, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful night's stay at The Inn at El Gaucho. Great location for a couples stay! Within walking distance to many of Seattle's popular tourist attractions. Cool vibe, great customer service, would definitely return.

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.
