First let me say I bought a car in Seattle sight unseen on Ebay. The transaction went smoothly but I never met the seller and the car was left on the street down the street from The Inn at EL Gaucho and the keys, documents etc left at desk.

We spent two nights in a beautiful room. The only drawback was that there is no elevator, but otherwise, we couldn't have asked for more. It is close to the Space Needle and related attractions, and not that far a walk to other downtown locations.

I had the best experience at the Inn at El Gaucho! This hotel has a great sense of style. The hotel has unique vintage decor and my hotel room was Marilyn Manroe themed!! Sandy at the desk is so so helpful and a wonderful host. She helped us plan a few activities around the city to keep my friends and...

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...

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...

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...
