Sandy at the concierge is very friendly and welcoming while checking in. Her service is warm and genuine while remaining completely professional at the same time...and the tuxedo napkins are too cute! The service, amenities, and view make this the perfect hotel to stay at in downtown Seattle. The room we stayed in was suite 8. It was spacious and...

My better half and I had the pleasure of staying at the Inn at El Gaucho over the Labour Day weekend (September 4-5). We had researched the lodging and restaurant online from various resources and were looking forward to seeing it in person. The hotel motif was spot on and the design was clean and beautiful. The location was fantastic...

If you're taking an early morning Victoria Clipper and want to stay nearby (but can't get into the Edgewater Hotel) this is the next closest inn. But you should know that the 3 or 4 short blocks showing on the map are actually incredibly steep, so get a ride if you've got luggage! Upon arriving, you'll have a hard time...

The Inn at El Gaucho is a simply wonderful 17 room inn located in the heart of Belltown Seattle. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The wine tasting in the evening was great. It is within easy walking distance to the Tower and park as well as Pike's market which should not be missed. Small problem is the fact...

We needed an overnight stop in Seattle on our way home to Boise and the chains are just so....beige. Supporting the local guy and something a bit more personal was what I was looking for as well as walking distance to the Space Needle which has been a life long dream of my husband to attend. Neither disappointed...the Inn at...

This has honestly been one of my top hotel experiences! The staff is all very genuine and humble. The room was very nice and comfortable.

I am floored by the lower reviews for this place. From the moment I walked in (minus the haul upstairs of my luggage) this place was five star. So lets get this out of the way. READ THIS. THERE IS NO ELEVATOR. If you cant or arent able to walk this is NOT the place for you. You do have...

The Inn only has 17 rooms which provided for a personalized experience. We were staying there on our honeymoon and we received exceptional service that included champagne, cookies, and a $75 gift certificate to the restaurant downstairs. This was the last of four hotels that we stayed at during our honeymoon and every other place charged exorbitant amounts for these...
