In the heart of downtown Seattle’s vibrant Belltown district
The Inn at El Gaucho is situated in the heart of Seattle’s Belltown district, which means you have over 100 of the city’s most happening restaurants and bars, plus one-of-a-kind boutiques and popular music venues, right outside your door. Conveniently, you’ll also be walking distance from many of the city’s classic attractions: the famed Pike Place Market (yes -- they still do the famous fish toss), Seattle Aquarium, the Space Needle, Seattle Art Museum, the waterfront, and much, much more. Belltown is a serious nightlife destination for many locals, so expect Friday and Saturday nights to be hopping -- even at the hotel, which is located in the same building as the renowned El Gaucho steakhouse.
18 roomy Junior Suites -- all 250 square feet or larger -- are decorated in soothing, rustic tones with a gentleman’s-club vibe
It’s hard not to feel at home at The Inn at El Gaucho: The 250-square-foot (or larger) rooms are outfitted with “retro-swank” furnishings and thoughtful touches (think: leather club seating, tea trays stocked with cookies upon check-in, and fresh flowers from nearby Pike Place Market). But the view of Seattle’s water and mountains -- which is the hallmark of the “Puget Sound Suites” -- will remind you that, in fact, you’ve definitely landed in the Emerald City. The Inn provides more affordable “Belltown Suites,” which trade that water view for an outlook of the lively neighborhood dining-and-shopping scene; but you can also upgrade to a “Deluxe Suite,” where you’ll find yourself with an extra 100 square feet of living space, plus a full-size sofa to boot.
All Rooms Include:
Intimate boutique hotel, with a downtown neighborhood vibe
Located smack-dab in the epicenter of downtown Seattle’ popular Belltown neighborhood, The Inn at El Gaucho is an intimate, second-story boutique hotel on top of El Gaucho steakhouse, featuring 18 spacious rooms. The hotel is ultra-convenient -- it’s walking distance to almost every popular Seattle attraction -- but has limited services (no elevator, no gym), so if you’re looking for a bit of pampering and luxury, you’ll probably want to head to a larger, more traditional venue.
