the location, comfort, cleanliness, different older building with few rooms. Located within walking distance of a handful of small restuarants and pubs about a mile from Pike's Market and the shopping district. Really different atmosphere than typical luxury hotels.
Had to take stairs up a flight and a half to get to the hotel. No elevators. My internet connection was rather weak. But front desk allowed me to use their main computer to print out boarding passes.
large room clean good wifi connection
stairs to go up to the reception, especially when you arrive with the luggage and don't know there is a service lift....
The staff was especially helpful, restaurant referrals and entertainment suggestions were spot on. The staff has their act together a rare experience ! The room was very comfortable. Located near many bars, restaurants,Pikes Market and the Space. Needle all walking distance. I highly recommend this hotel.
Spacious Rooms Great coffee every morning Free wine every evening Excellent hosts/hostesses
Everything was great!
The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The room was large, very clean and very comfortable. The location was excellent within walking distance of the market, harbour and main shopping district and with various restaurants also close by. We would definitely stay there again if Seattle. Far better than the reviews lead you to believe.
The only negative were the steep stairs to reception as the hotel is located a floor above the restaurant. We are mobile however the hotel would not have been suitable to someone with difficulties climbing stairs. Luckily the staff happily took our luggage up in the service elevator as we would not have been able to carry it up the stairs.
Loved the decor, easy valet parking and excellent staff. The complementary wine was nice, too. Our room was spacious and comfortable.
Helpful staff, good downtown location, and funky decor. Room was nice and big and bed was super comfortable.
TV didn't work so well but that was probably just a battery in the remote issue.
Convenient, friendly, clean and comfortable
No counter space in bathroom. Room right on the street, a little noisy and a little seedy looking
Location is perfectly in restaurant district. Spacy rooms. Complimentary glass of wine every day. Very friendly receptionists.
Small bathroom. There is no lift, but you can be assisted with your luggage.
Location was excellent
Just the most comfortable bed of any hotel I've ever stayed at no matter how many stars. Extremely personal touch and attention to detail throughout. Great coffee and cookies in the room.
Drivers didn't always know where it was, just a minor inconvenience.
The adage that you get what you pay for holds true. The Inn at El Gaucho was on the expensive side (I got a rate of $279 for a queen bed with a sofa/table area) for the budget I was on for my business trip. But this place was terrific and the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. Plus, free wine.
Not a thing. Don't change it.
We have chosen this hotel for the location which is close to our home and we were having family visiting with us at the time. So we needed to find a place just for the nights.
We have got a very poor impression of this hotel, and would certainly never recommend it to anyone else. To start with - they withheld the whole amount for the weekly stay + incidentals (almost a 100 dollars per night) right away at our arrival - the explanation from the manager came as it it was their policy and they would not change it for us. So much for the hospitality and politeness.This policy we never read about, it was never presented to us either in written form or orally. The late evening staff lady would not even greet us while were passing by her desk. The whole atmosphere is gloomy and uncomfortable. The room was extremely small with literally nothing in it except for the bed and a tiny sofa, very old and worn out. They claim that all their rooms are suites but this is far less than a suite - just a desk inside a closet. We never knew this can be called a suite?! The clothes' closet literally had a few hangers and very little space. The noise coming from the room across the hall, making love, etc. was overwhelming... When we were leaving the hotel, our only unanimous feeling was NEVER AGAIN.
My wife and I love to walk the areas we visit. This was a great central location in Seattle close to major attractions, awesome restaurants, and the waterfront. The staff was nice and very helpful. A shout out to Sandy. Would definitely stay again.
Not much, if there is one small issue it is the stairs leading up to the inn after a long day of walking Seattle hills.
Everything was excellent! If you had a rating higher than excellent I would give it to the staff. John and the girls couldn't do enough to please us. Rooms are large and have every amenity possible. Less than a ten minute walk to all points of interest. From the cookies on arrival to the 2 hours of complimentary wine at night, everything is first class!
I liked everything.
Decor a bit dark otherwise good
Room was great
Hvac noises. Too bad, they put so much effort in all the other details.
Loved the location !!! And the rooms , the beds, the coffee machine in the rooms and outside , the service , the bathroon and water pressure !!!! REALLY ENJOYED IT
Were a bit nervous when saw the entrance and going up the stairs to the hotel, but then when we saw the room it was a gem
staff was very nice; room was comfortable and clean.
parking was very expensive; would be better to just not have a car for this location. The noise at night was terrible! Drunk people yelling, car crashes...we like fresh air, so we had our window open but that allowed the noise to keep us up. It's a convenient location, but keep the windows closed at night!
Inn supervisor Jon Ruskin was so welcoming and attentive to us, we really felt valued as customers. The hand written key envelope AND card in the room were so personal, not to mention the homemade chocolate chip cookies, the rooms were so well appointed and so roomy didnt feel cramped what so ever the bed and linens were so comfortable!! The complimentary wine in the evening was delicious!! from the restaurant down stairs. We will return without a doubt and have reccomended them to many friends and family. the location was perfect we walked everywhere!!
cookies! guest services cookies! complimentary wine happy hour service
The location was great, two blocks from the waterfront and a short walk from the Space Needle. The view was nice. The beds were very, very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the cookies. The wine tasting each night was a nice touch. We really loved our stay at the Inn and would highly recommended it.
About the only thing I can think of, and this really wasn't a problem, would be the lack of an elevator. But we heard they are installing one in the near future.
Super Comfortable Bed Great water pressure in the showers Very nice staff
Close to the steak house
No cover to the smoking area in front when raining.
Very friendly staff they were very inviting and helpful, loved the hand written note and wine tasting
