El Gaucho Review

Hollywood Rat Pack enthusiasts will want to move right in to this dark, swank, and luxurious, retro-style inn, upstairs from Belltown's beloved El Gaucho steak house and the Big Picture—a fabulous movie theater with a full bar. The seventeen ultrachic suites are done in dark wood, with buttery leather furniture; workstations are cleverly concealed in closets. Rooms face Puget Sound, the city, or the hotel atrium; atrium rooms are quieter than those that face the street. Additional perks include room service from El Gaucho and in-room massages and spa services from the Hyatt's spa team.
