Just had our 2nd two night stay at the Inn at El Gaucho and without a doubt this is my kinda place! I love the retro "RatPack" decore, the subdued lighting and the fact that it's kinda hidden atop an amazing restaurant.
The valet parked our car and offered help with bags (Just an FYI we did see a service elevator if this is an issue for you) and the front desk staff were awesome. Parking was a steal at $12(?) compared to the outrageous $35+ I have paid in this town.
The Belltown location is outstanding being close enough to walk over to Seattle Centre or to Pike Place Market. This is downtown in a major US city so if you are looking for the serene silence of the English countryside you ought to adjust your expectations. The standard sights and sounds I expect in a city are there although I would not say that things were noisy just normal.
We've had a westward (water) facing room both times but in reality with the buildings all around the view is not a highlight. I did see a courtyard room and thought next time we'll request oneof these.
If I had to be picky I would say that upgrading to King beds would be great but then again its nice to snuggle with our loved ones isn't it :)
