Love this hotel and can't wait to go back!!! My boyfriend and I stay in Seattle at least once a month and we have stayed in probably 20 different hotels in the downtown area. The Inn at El Gaucho is now our favorite. The only disappointment is that we didn't discover it sooner!! When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly valet attendant who offered to help us with our luggage (we only had one small suitcase so we declined). We took the stairs up to the second floor (the restaurant is on the first) and were greeted by a very friendly receptionist, who checked us in an actually walked us to our room to show us where it was and make sure the keys worked. Unheard of! This was the first nice touch. Second, my name was written on the envelope that the keys came in and there was also a greeting card addressed to me in the room, welcoming us to the hotel. Such a nice personal touch that made us feel special and it was much appreciated. Also, when we arrived to our room the radio was already on, playing some nice jazz music and there were 2 chocolate chip cookies waiting for us! YUM! Oh, and I forgot to mention free wine tasting (2 reds and 2 whites) in the lobby from 5-7. Awesome!!! I'm not sure if they do this every night or if we just got lucky. Our room was a junior suite (I think) and it was large, very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The next morning the receptionist was equally as friendly and helpful. We went out to the lobby to sit and have a cup of coffee and wait for our friends, who were also staying there as well, but had gotten up earlier and walked down to the market. He asked us a couple of times if he could get anything for us. He also offered to get our car pulled around to the front, but we declined since we were going to do some walking around downtown Seattle. When we did go to get our car we were blocked in by a big delivery truck for their restaurant...We called the front desk and someone came down immediately to move the truck and he apologized like 10 times. This hotel is an outstanding example of wonderful customer service and shows that they care about their guests. We can't wait to stay there again!
