If you have ever had a meal at El Gaucho, you know the service is as good as the food. The inn upstairs is the same. Great service and personal attention to detail. I checked in after 11pm, exhausted from a full day. Emily was there to welcome me with a smile and get me settled in. Was a treat... More

Stayed here a few weeks ago for a fun girls/mom's night out with a bunch of friends. The location was great for going out in Belltown and the rooms were nice and comfortable. Emily at the front desk and the rest of the staff including Tony(?) in valet went above and beyond great customer service. Loved all the extra touches... More

Just used this place to sleep, bed was very comfortable and fluffy. Clean room, bigger than i thought. Decent sized living room with it. Price for the room was very good compared with other places in the Seattle area. But the best thing of all THEY GIVE YOU 2 FREE COOKIES :D

The Inn at El Gaucho exceeded my expectations. In Belltown, a nice corner of Seattle, it is up the hill from Seattle harbor, and although there are no views it is close to everything. My main fears about noise were quickly alleviated when I saw how large and plush the accommodations. There was a note addressed to me in welcome... More

I couldn't be happier having come across this gem! Awesome staff and wonderful accommodations. Coffee always available and such an incredible selection of wines in the evening( don't miss the tiny tuxedos made from napkins!) We would highly recommend this perfectly located well appointed Inn. We will be back!
