Simply superb!!! What a great place to stay. They only have less than twenty rooms, we stayed in room 2, it came complete with the most comfortable bed we've slept in far a long time, a sofa and arm chair as well as a fridge and plenty of closet space and storage. Free wifi and in the evening a chance...

Definitely recommend the Inn at El Gaucho. We felt very welcomed and loved the little personal touch with a nice card and cookies awaiting in our suite. The hotel was clean and we are happy to have stayed here. We would stay again if we are in Seattle. David was super friendly at the front desk! Thanks for your hospitality...

I have stayed at the Inn at El Gaucho several times and have found it to be relaxing and convenient. If you are planning to dine at El Gaucho staying at the Inn is a "no Brainer". We also dined one night at Agua and the hotel arranged a shuttle for us that was very convenient and needed because of...

I did quite a bit of research before settling on the Inn at El Gaucho for our recent Seattle visit. The pictures I found online made it look cool and the location was right where we needed to be. When we arrived, we were both completely enamored by how cool the property is. Yes, you have to go upstairs to...

One of the better hotels in downtown Seattle. Like walking into a time capsule. Lee and the morning staff were very helpful and friendly. Everything about this hotel was spot on. I will be staying here time and time again.

We stayed at the Inn at El Gaucho for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year's and just loved it. What a great atmosphere - very vintage and retro. Photos of old movie stars adorned the walls (our room had a large picture of James Dean) and the colour scheme is fantastic. They have a small number of rooms on...
