I found this amazing hotel, the Inn at El Gaucho on ILoveinns. The hotel is intimate, comfortable and the staff is lovely and helpful. The location is fantastic, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go; Pike Place Market, the Aquarium, The Space Needle, Shopping, Dining and more. They have extra touches that make it really nice, delicious... More

I really enjoyed my stay at El Gaucho. The staff was friendly and helpful. The small touches here were really lovely--chocolate chip cookies at arrival, hand-written thank you notes and key card envelopes, water and coffee available. The lobby's really nice with a fireplace and a swanky Old Hollywood feel. Wall art was Hollywood inspired. I enjoyed the location...walkable to... More

This was one of the largest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. There was a full sized leather sofa in my room with a great flat screen! The linens, glasswear, bath products were of a higher quality than you would normally have in a hotel. The staff was great with suggestions of where to go, and most importantly you... More

We spent a lovely 7 days at this hotel. I love it! Best night sleep I've had in a long time. The bed was extremely comfortable with lots of pillows and down comforters. Loved the leather couch with flat screen TV. If you don't want to watch TV you have lovely built in radio with great sound system. Gourmet coffee... More

I stayed at this boutique hotel for 4 nights and loved the rooms (nice and spacious), bed, location, only a short walk to pike markets. The only down fall for me is if there is any noise on the street you can hear it very well in from your room, reception staff during the week were awesome, not so nice... More

Wow I guess people get really excited for mediocre hotels. Located in a trendy part of town, the building is run down and visually unappealing. Staff was accommodating enough, nothing spectacular. Though the furniture in the rooms was newer, the overall decor was less than impressive. The bathroom was old with dingy floors. No fridge, no microwave. Nothing to be... More

The hotel is on the second floor and is not handicap accessible, but for all others, this is a really fun place. From the movie theater, to the burlesque room adn dining room, this is evocative of the Rat Packera gone by. I had possibly one of the best steak dinners in the restaurant, and our room was fantastic with... More

Just returned from a relaxing stay at the Inn and loved LOVED it! Here's the thing...it's not a typical hotel or chain at all. With just 19 rooms & no elevator you can tell they really try to go the extra mile to make up for it. The rooms are a wonderful size for the price and the freshly baked... More

This inn is in the perfect location if you don't have a car. It was easy to walk, with suitcase to catch the Victoria Clipper to Canada. Easy walk to great cafes, Space Needle ( a bit further) and Pike Market. Getting up the stairs with a suitcase is tricky but survivable. Wonderful staff on the desk, very helpful and... More
