The Inn at El Gaucho, Seattle
The rooms themselves are a bit tired. They are in the process of being remodeled right now, so I expect that future stays will have this resolved. Parking is awkward with few overnight spots available nearby, though their is Valet available to make that easier. The staff is exceptional, always looking for ways to help you and make your stay better.

Great stay in Seattle
We had a great stay at El Guacho! The look and feel of the place is a very cool retro sort of vibe. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and were around to check us in even at our late night arrival time. The location is fantastic, walking distance from Pike’s Market and the museum district/Space Needle. They even have free wine and snacks from 5-7pm! For parking, you can pay $40 a day for valet, or some street parking is free overnight as long as you move your car by 8am. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely recommend it.

Great service and value! Rooms could use an update
Service is great! They go above and beyond to make you comfortable. Rooms are outdated and need a refresh but overall this is good value for the location and I’d definitely stay here again.
