Great staff including David and Raven by name, however, everyone was friendly, helpful, and knowledgable about the area. The hotel is small, cozy, and fabulously located. This is my new Seattle go to.... Stay here! You won't be disappointed!

Hotel room was very well furnished, and spacious. The bathroom was a bit outdated and cramped. Nice leather furniture and desk in the closet. I was just a bit surprised at the amount of waiting I had to do in order to check in and check out. I'd stay here again, would just ask for a bit more responsiveness from the staff. I didn't see options for breakfast either, but there was quite a bit of stuff around that I was able to find something nice.

Room Tip: Look for a room that faces the water. The street view is not favorable.

This is a great hotel - perfect location to walk downtown, to Pike Place Market, any city tour and shops. Lots ofgreat restaurants inthe area too. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our room is small but the bed was really comfy, they have free wi-fi, tea and coffee in the room and cable (if you want to spend your time watching tv!?). Valet parking is $25/night. We woud stay here again.

Stayed one night and chose this hotel because it sounded boutiquey and was only a short 5 min walk to Pier 69 where the Victoria Clipper docks.

The building has not curb appeal, but once upstairs in the lobby, there is indeed a chic feel as a previous reviewer mentioned.

Very welcoming front desk staff who show you to your room. You are greeted in your room with a personalized welcome card. Nice touch :)

Beds and towels were dreamy.

No complaints. Everything was nicely done.

Classy, upscale meets value. I wasn't expecting much from the outside appeal, but once I arrived upstairs to the lobby, there is a chic hipster vibe. I continued to be pleasantly surprised, when I opened the door to my room and the decor and quality continued to be above my expectations. And to boot the staff was great and I was in walking distance to shopping, restaurants along with everything on my itinerary. Food great also.

We really enjoyed our stay at el Gaucho, located directly above the popular Argentinian restaurant of the same name.
The hotel is older, with large suite like rooms. The rooms are very comfortable, as is the bedding. There is an evening wine reception in the lobby, which was enjoyable.
The staff was friendly, and went out of their way to offer suggestions for good neighborhood bakeries and diners for breakfast, of which there are several good ones.
The real only drawback is the lack of a passenger elevator, meaning you will climb about 34 steps to enter the hotel. Some might find this an obstacle.
The Belltown neighborhood is definitely up and coming, with lots of construction ongoing. There is no shortage of great restaurants within walking distance. You are also only a few blocks walk to the waterfront, the Space Needle or downtown.
