I'll have to post some pictures, but it's too dark right now, but I will post some soon. Their house is amazing and I'm really lucky they're letting me stay with them for so long :)

Gotta send a shout out to Angella for being a REAL RN!!! So happy ...

Hanging out with Miss Olivia

A travel blog entry by quiltinlady


... br>
First and foremost on my mind, of course, was meeting the remarkable Miss Olivia (now 10 months old). Sadly my arrival on Tuesday seemed to coincide with major shift in her sleeping habits, one that's left her parents exhausted and frustrated. My heart went out to Erin, who'd nearly lost her mind during Olivia's earlier months, when she'd suddenly refused to sleep more than two hours at a time. And even that was done grudgingly. ...

Boeing Adventure

A travel blog entry by julieblyth


Our first challenge was fitting all yesterday's shopping into our suitcases. Mission accomplished with a few old clothes donated to the good will bin. Our first stop today was the Boeing factory at Everett. It was amazing and massive. I think there was something like 90 acres undercover in one building. The complex was opened in 1964 to build the new 747. Now it makes the 777 and 787 Dreamliner as well as the last ...

Museum of Flight

... prototype and a 737 prototype are here, but not open today, but it’s still interesting to see them.

We realise time is getting on, and there are even more exhibits to see, including replicas from World War 1 and World War 2. It will be impossible to see them all before the museum closes, so Lavinia takes the kids to the World War 2 exhibit, and I do a very quick tour of both of the exhibits. It ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at El Gaucho Seattle

    The Best Stay in Seattle


    The El Gaucho is the best hotel of many that we have stayed in while traveling to Seattle.

    Exceptionally friendly and courteous staff. They offered much more than than my expectation. My wife rates hotels on cleanliness. Give it a "10" for that. The room was just great. Excellent color scheme, nicely furnished, and reasonably quiet. Although I would have enjoyed a King bed the Queen was really comfy. And finally, a hotel with really hot water! Oh and the price was really good too.

    The location of the hotel is excellent as well. A short hike to the Pike Street Market, the furnituire stores on Western Avenue and some of the greatest restaurants in the Northwest.

    We loved the El Guacho and are planning our next stay.

    Awesome hotel despite its name


    The Inn is in one of the best locations in Seattle, Beltown. It is within walking distance to Pike Market, great restuarants, check out Zoe's, shops, and the space needle. The rooms are large and comfortable. The staff is so helpful, attentive, professional, etc. I was really impressed. I'm very picky and have stayed in great hotels all over the country. I am not easily pleased but I have to say I was happy with the entire three day I was there. They even include a simple breakfast delivered to you in the morning (you have to request it). The bed was fantastic as were the towels. I highly recommend this place. If you can't walk up stairs (2 flights) and need a bathtub this might not be the place for you. I got over the cheesy name and took a chance on this place and am very happy I did. Great deal, great location, awesome staff.

    Fantastic stay!


    My husband and I just spent a weekend at the Inn at El Gaucho. Have been to Seattle many times and wanted to stay in Belltown area so we could be close to the many restaurants/bars as well as shopping, but also have a relaxing stay in a nice (but not too expensive) hotel. This hotel fit the bill. The staff at the front desk were so welcoming and friendly. Even though I knew our room would not be ready - it was before noon- check in is 3:00- they kept our bags and took our cell # to give us a call when it was ready (keep in mind that there are only 18 rooms in this hotel- if they say a room isn't ready it probably isn't). After wandering around town for a while (Pike place is only few blocks away) we came back to our lovely room-we had even been upgraded to a Soundview room. Really comfy room with Plasma TV- nice linens and cozy leather couches. In the morning we were delivered a continental breakfast with awesome coffee, fresh juice/fruit and warm breads with the morning paper- perfect way to spend a lazy morning- lounging on the leather couch.

    Belltown at it's best


    We stay in Seattle frequently and picked the Inn at El Gaucho because we wanted to experience Belltown, a neighborhood within walking distance of Pike Place Market and downtown. The room was fabulous with a

    Fantastic Stay


    My wife and I recently stayed at El Gaucho and it was fantastic. The rooms are extremely comfortable - and after a long day exploring seattle it was great just sinking into the leather couch and turning on the plasma TV. The staff were fantastic - and it was a much more personal service than I've recieved at any of the bigger hotels I've stayed at.

    If I was to visit Seattle again I would definitely just say at El Gauchos again.

    Will keep going back


    My husband and I have now stayed at the Inn at El Gaucho twice and each time has been extremely pleasant. We originally booked a room for after our wedding and the staff was incredible (although a bit slow for off-hours food requests). The rooms are warmly lit, the beds are extremely comfortable, the robes are very nice, and the sitting area great for your morning cup of coffee or just an afternoon nap. It isn't a scene, which is quite nice after a disappointing stay at the W in Seattle. The Inn is private, small and discrete - perfect for our mini-honeymoon.

    Disappointed with the lack of flexibility from the staff!!


    I stayed at El Gaucho for business travel during the week. My flight into Seattle arived at half past noon (a 4.5 hour flight from St Louis). My plans were to check in, shower, shave and change clothes for my afternoon business meetings. Upon arrival, I was refused an early check in (it was nearly 1 PM when I arrived at the Hotel). I understand the "policy" of not checking in until 3 PM, but for a business traveler who endures an early/long flight to Seattle and who needed to be presentable for business meetings, I was very disappointed with the lack of flexibility to allow me to check in early. I've never been turned down for an early check in by any other hotel I've stayed, and not being allowed this early check put me in a bad situation. The desk clerk couldn't have cared less about my situation and wouldn't allow me in an already cleaned room. I had to shave and change in the lobby restroom. I won't be back, that's for sure...especially if I am arriving in town before 3 PM!



    All out extras: gift bags, in room breakfast, amazingly soft bathrobe, plasma tv. Above and beyond expectations!

    Loved this hotel


    My girlfriend, me and my one week old son had tickets to a seahawks game and decided to try this hotel. Absolutely loved it! If you are like me and need a hotel that is comfortable and guarantees a good nights sleep this is definately one of them. Good sized rooms, nice staff, close to the stadium(we took transit there and walked back). I loved the bed, the tv, the cookies upon arrival, the in room continental breakfast and leather couches. Good room for entertaining a couple people. I like that there are only 18 rooms, keeps it nice and personal. I've stayed at $29.00 to $500 a night hotels and I feel El Gaucho gives you more than your moneys worth.

    Just What I Was Looking For


    For our vacation in Seattle, my wife and I didn't want the typical "corporate" hotel with its impersonal service and hundreds of guests. Instead, we looked for a more intimate setting where the service would be personal and we wouldn't be lost in the crowd. I found the Inn at El Gaucho by accident in an offhand comment on a message board and looked into it. They have 18 rooms, all on one floor, above the "El Gaucho" steakhouse in the Belltown section of Seattle. There was very little information about the Inn on this or any other travel-related web sites, but we decided to take a chance on it. We loved it.
