Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The intimate boutique hotel rests above its namesake steakhouse in the epicentre of downtown Seattle’s popular Belltown neighborhood. Pike Place Market and the Space Needle are with a 10-minute walk from the property and the waterfront is just five blocks away.

Decorated in swanky 1950’s style with dark wood and buttery leather, The Inn at El Gaucho looks like a hangout for the Rat Pack. In addition to the El Gaucho Steakhouse, the property is also home to the Big Picture, a movie theater with full bar showing indie films. On rainy days, guests gather in the dimly-lit lobby for cocktails around the fireplace.

The intimate property includes 17 suites reachable only by stairwell and is not handicap-accessible. Accommodations have queen or king beds with a separate seating area facing the Puget Sound, the hotel’s atrium or Olympic Mountains. All rooms feature Keurig coffeemakers, Bose Wave music systems, L’Occitane body products and flat screen televisions. Room service from El Gaucho is available and guests can also order in-room massages and spa services from the Hyatt's spa team. Freebies include Wi-Fi, a fresh cookie upon arrival and a yoga mat or exercise ball with a dedicated workout channel for instructions en suite.
