The Inn at El Gaucho Hotel Review: Paying tribute to the design aesthetic of the mid-century, The Inn at El Gaucho bills its style as “retro swank.” The colors are rich and the furnishings handcrafted, creating a dignified atmosphere. This boutique hotel boasts just seventeen suites, with views that range from the atrium to Elliott Bay and the majestic Olympic Mountains. Top brands highlight the amenity offerings, beginning with L’Occitane body products, Pacific Coast Feather Co. featherbeds and Bose Wave stereo CD player/clock radios. Additional amenities include flat-screen TVs and rain showerheads, and freebies include a fresh cookie upon arrival and a yoga mat or exercise ball for guest use with yoga and fitness instruction available on an in-room cable channel. With its fireplace, the lobby is a cozy place to hang out on rainy days. And for a great meal, guests need only step next door, for steaks and fresh seafood grilled over open coals and El Gaucho Seattle.
