We stayed at the Inn at El Gaucho for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year's and just loved it. What a great atmosphere - very vintage and retro. Photos of old movie stars adorned the walls (our room had a large picture of James Dean) and the colour scheme is fantastic. They have a small number of rooms on...

I realized I've been remiss! I was looking for a room to return to The Inn at El Gaucho and realized I never left the review I meant to write when we stayed in October during the storm of the century. My friend and I decided to stay here while in town for a wedding in mid October. We thought...

Loved my stay! The staff were very welcoming. I arrived before my room was ready and they moved me to another room that was already available. The happy hour was great! I would definitely stay here again or recommend to a friend. You definitely can't beat it for the price. Location was nice in that it was between downtown and...

I have always loved the restaurant and all its glory since I first came here back in 2003. Talk about style, grace and swank...this place definitely brings back class. That's just the restaurant... The Inn is even better! Amazing rooms! We stayed in room 9 which had a view of the back alley and a peak of the water and...

This is a small 17 room place right in the heart of Belltown easy to walk to downtown, market, water front, or Seattle Center. Literally 4 or 5 blocks to everything Seattle has to offer. It seems well run, very clean, comfy, and a nifty wine reception at night. Basement housing an awesome single screen theater with first run movies,...

This is a class act with a beautiful bar and wonderful food. Service was good. The steaks were phenomenal. The Spanish coffee was not so good but the rest of the meal was very tasty. It was a good time by all

2 night and a day relaxing. The staff and location were great. The desk staff gave great suggestions for food and sites to see or avoid. While there, you get comp coffee or tea and a nice conversation pit by a fireplace. YOU HAVE TO TRY THE BLACK RAVEN local brews.

I found this place while searching for a last minute cheap hotel. $215 a night was pretty good and a great location. Easily accessible to Pike's Peak and downtown.
