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. Everyday 5-7 they have a free wine tasting for the guest which I enjoyed. Especially the little chocolate candies.. My boyfriend and I enjoyed those the most! Also the location is perfect.. It's close to...

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...

Thank you for your kind words about our Inn and for your advice to our future guests. I am so happy you enjoyed our cookies and the SUPER comfy bed. I personally carried at least half of them up the two flights of stairs so I am glad my efforts are appreciated. I will definitely pass along your kind word...

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...

Recently I visited Seattle with my teenage daughter. I had looked for a unique hotel downtown, and found this one on Trip Advisor. It had received such high reviews I knew I had to try it. It started with reviews that people mentioned they received cookies upon check-in and I wanted to check if they had nuts. I emailed David...

The room, service at the Inn as well as the restaurant was top notch. They went over and above to make sure everything went perfectly for us while we were on our overnight trip to Seattle. Emily in particular, did a wonderful job and we appreciated her willingness to help.

The Inn At El Gaucho is unlike any boutique hotel I have stayed in for years - no stark white and chrome minimalism here. Instead you get a larger room, warm toned walls, dark wood and leather furniture and a good amount of storage space. The staff were great - helpful before I arrived and more so during my visit....

I was only there for one night but it was fantastic! Service and room were wonderful! The music playing as you enter, thank you card and cookies were all nice touches. The bed was super comfy and towels where huge and thick. I will definitely come back!

The service is the best I have ever received anywhere in the world! Every staff member went out of his or her way to be friendly, helpful and courteous. We ate at the restaurant downstairs. It was as good as the hotel!!

This is an overall amazing place to stay. There is nothing negative to be said about the Inn at El Gaucho. Checking in was flawless thanks to Emily. She checked us in, brought our luggage up the freight elevator, valet parked our car and made our dinner reservation at their on-site restaurant. Before dinner we stopped by the lobby for...

The service was personable and they went out of the way to make you comfortable. I loved the little touches like the Bose stereos in the room, the free wine tasting fro 5-7. Room was smallish but very clean and nice retro decor. Found this to be the perfect spot for my husband and I "kid free" get away for...
