This trip to the past quaint hotel is refreshing from the big chain high rise hotels. We always try and stay off the beaten path so for us this was a great choice, it wont be everyone's cup of tea and that's okay if you get my meaning. We had a nice room comfy bed a great seating area with a small couch and club chair. A desk for work space, Keurig machine and mini fridge. There are two flights of stairs with a elevator lift for luggage only. David the manager and his staff go above and beyond with customers with personal attention we had a glitch at the end of our stay but it was handled professionally and graciously. They offer a nice happy hour and don't forget the cookies!

Despite having a strange entrance by the side of the restaurant, we found this hotel exceptionally friendly. The room was great and spacious and the location was excellent. On our first day we were invited to happy hour where we met some of the other guests and the staff helped us understand where to go etc. in Seattle. When we go back to Seattle, we will definitely stay at the Inn at El Gaucho.

The staff is amazing. They offer you wine, cookies, etc. when you check-in. They also did nice things like leaving a personalized Thank You card and turned on the music in our room before we got there. The location was urban, which is perfect if you want to be downtown. It was only 2 blocks to Pike Place Market and a short car ride to everything else. The room itself was a bit small and somewhat dated, but it had fun decor and was cozy. I am very happy we chose to stay here.

Stopped for one night (unfortunately as we would have stayed longer if we weren't traveling around the Washington area). A personalised welcome with chocolate chip cookies! Amazing room with a comfortable bed and lounge seating area, music, and tea/coffee facilities. Bathroom was clean with fantastic bath shower and all possible toiletteries. The receptionist was very friendly, helpful and extremely efficient with check-in and check-out. Location is great too. We will definitely return and would highly recommend this hotel. 10+ out of 10!

We visited the Inn at El Gaucho overnight on 24 Aug 17 prior to boarding our cruise ship. We received an amazing welcome from David, together with a hand-written welcome note in the room as well as cookies! The room itself was quirky, very spacious and included comfortable leather sofas, a big bed (loads of pillows) together with a minibar and coffee-making facilities. The location in Belltown was ideal, very central and within walking distance of the waterfront piers and Pike Market. The hotel offered a "happy hour" which included snacks and wine in the comfort of the leather armchairs in the lobby. David drove us to the port the following morning, which saved us getting a taxi. Would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again, although it was quite expensive.

Dear 327hjb,

We really appreciate your review and the time you spent to share your experience with us. While summer rates are much higher due to the fabulous summers we have here, our winter and fall rates can be incredibly favorable if we can be luck enough to have you as our guest again soon! Watch our website for some new promotions we will have this fall/winter on stay packages!

Cheers again,
David
