    Historical Traveler Reviews Alexis Hotel - A Kimpton Hotel Seattle

    Will return to the Alexis

    from

    Stayed here in February and returning in a few weeks. Love the kimpton group hotels. The private steam shower is a great amenity. Found the front desk and bell service to be excellent. The restaurant staff was a bit snooty and the food pricey. The rooms have different decor and some are nicer than others. Stayed in the Sultan Suite and it was absolutely gorgeous with a fireplace. The bathroom was older but clean. Complimentary wine in the evenings with the opportunity to paint with watercolors your own postcard to mail. Would recommend this hotel!!

    The John Lennon Suite is Great!

    from

    We stayed at the Alexis last weekend. We were able to book the John Lennon suite at a great rate by calling the hotel directly and asking them to match the Expedia rate. The suite has a nice living room with fireplace and a bedroom separated from the rest of the suite. (The bed was very comfortable!) The bathroom wasn't huge or luxurious but it did have a jacuzzi tub. The staff was great and arranged town car pick-up at airport and for our return. The only downside is that there is no view from the suite. It's about a 5 block walk to Pike's market. I would definitley stay there again if I wanted to be in that part of town.

    Unimpressed with the Alexis

    from

    Overall very poor quality. I am thankful that I did not pay the $395 per night rack rate and was instead able to secure a rate of $195 which was still overpriced for this property. Would not stay at the Alexis again. Various problems, including but not limited to: --Executive suite without dining room table (specified on website) on check-in and also horrible musty odor; asked to change rooms and request was accommodated only to be put in room 225 which was extremely noisy due to local traffic (sound proof windows were obviously not functional) --Room service was horrible and extremely over-priced; never paid that much before even at the Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton --Bathroom tub was dirty; no Aveda bath products as specified on website; no hot water on Saturday morning; bathroom needs to be remodeled --Staff was lack-luster and did not go out of their way to help; also, very uninformed about hotel amenities; never asked how stay was at check-out --Concierge never followed through on assisting with my request for reservations

    We had a great time

    from

    Lovely hotel with large rooms and friendly staff. Decorated beautifully with every amenity needed. Central close to the amazin Pike Place market. A great place to stay.

    Loved The Alexis Hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Alexis Hotel from Dec.24th-28th 2003. The hotel was great, staff very friendly. bellhops the greatest. Beds very comfortable. Food good. Can't wait to go back to Seattle. The trip was a Christmas gift from my daughters. The staff at the Alexis made it a great trip

    Great Hotel - Super Location!

    from

    Prior to sailing out of Seattle on a cruise to Alaska, we stayed at the Alexis Hotel. Having never been to this area of the country, we searched for lodging that reflected the flavor of the city and the Alexis delivered.

    When we arrived, we were greeted were cheerful, helpful bellmen promptly at our car to assist with luggage. The front desk professionals went over and above to make our stay a pleasant and memorable one. We were upgraded to a larger room at no additional charge. The rooms were comfortable with their simple, but elegant decor, along with high-end bedding.

    The location could not have been more convenient to the waterfront (about 2 blocks) and Pike Place Market (4 blocks). The Art Museum and Aquarium are also within easy walking distance. Upon our return from our seven day cruise, we returned to the Alexis and they held our luggage prior to our flying out that same day so we could enjoy Seattle for a few more hours. Kudos to their entire professional and friendly staff. The Alexis Hotel is highly recommended by this traveler!

    Fab Hotel

    from

    Best hotel I have ever stayed at! Outstanding service; ombiance was excellent; room was decorated simply but was elegant at the same time with a very confortable feeling! Extras from the front desk was not at extra charge as has been eluded to in past reviews. Staff was friendly and willing to assist with anything (especially Darlene, the Chief Concierge). Spa Room Floor was fantastic. Trouble with phone for the two week stay, but got around that little inconvenience. This will be my hotel of choice when in Seattle! Well Done, Alexis!

    A Wonderful Boutique Hotel

    from

    Stayed at the Alexis at end of March 2003 for two nites; a great boutique hotel, wonderful appointments and good-sized room. Great location, within walking distance to al the great attractions. I highly recommend.

    Great Hotel!

    from

    We stayed at the Alexis on New Years Eve and had a great time. The location of the hotel is perfect - 2 blocks from the bay, 2 blocks from Pioneer Square, and 2 blocks from Pike Place Market.

    The room was large - the staff was friendly - the bar was cozy (and was not filled with screaming 20 somethings - a definite plus!). I highly recommend the Alexis Hotel. Don't book directly through them if you want a good deal - try ... or something similar.

    Great Boutique Hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Alexis while in Seattle for business. It is a beautiful & unique hotel and the staff is very friendly. They have a FREE wine hour every evening for the guests. The location is ideal, near the water, museum, lots of restaurants, Pike market, and the business district. My only complaint is that the Timberland store directly beneath my room decided to do construction at 11 pm, jolting me out of my sleep. The hotel took care of it though.

    ... on and off of the primary pack.... well they don't work worth a hoot. I dislike my pack, but it is in perfect shape. I think I have to use it for one more Euro-walk-about. It's workable because we really only transfer with the backpacks. We never should have to wear them for more than a 15-minute hike from train station to apartment.

    ... the New York ones, we were over the moon with these ones. The price of these pies $3.50, bargain.

    Finding the shop, the four of us sat down and consumed one each (well Tom did have two) and then purchased four frozen pies each to take with us.

    We were able to enter Canada with our pies still in the refrigerator. We won't give the American Border Officers a chance to take these off us when we return, they will ...

    ... board, and everyone was happy. Unfortunately though, the Dallas Cowboys kept even with us for the entire game, and in the last few minutes got the lead with a touchdown and conversion.
    I feel like I was able to keep up with most of what happened, and although i had no idea about any of the technical jargon, I got used to working out when to clap and when to boo, and when to stand up and when to sit down (cos I mean, I paid for the seat - I want to sit in it :P). ...

    My trip concludes with an explosive ending.

    ... and just had the most fun. Anyone visiting Seattle just has to go! Another of Steph's plans was to see a music artist called Lucinda Williams who is a mix of country, folk, jazz and a bit of rock, for her friend, Nicole's birthday. The concert was in the Seattle zoo so, I was able to see some cool wildlife before the music began (i am not sure whether I agree with zoos now but they were making paper out of recycled elephant poo and I thought at least this one seems to ...

    ... The 'party' was a total bust but fortunately the guy who owned the house that the 2 *****s were staying at was an absolute legend who was heavily involved in the Washington craft beer industry and I was able to spend the night drinking and some of the most amazing micro brew beers to ever grace my tastebuds. I figured I was about due to write a little update before I forgot about anything. I will write something new after all the shows and festivals that are coming up in the next 2 ...
