Travel Blogs from Seattle
i decided to compress the last 3 days into one blog entry simply because we stayed all three days in Seattle. Like last year we parked Homey in a storage yard and stayed in downtown Seattle at the Alexis Hotel. The great thing about this place, other than free Cabernets, Sauvignons, Syrahs, and Merlots for Kamal, was that it allowed Kramer to stay …
It really wasn't difficult to get up early and leave the Coeur D'Alene Motel 6, although the morning housekeeper more than made up for her colleague's rudeness and gave Harry a biscuit. We were on the road by 6.15am and made it to Ritzville for another horrid Macdonald's breakfast. Mood improved with our first seagull sighting - can't …
A last minute decision on a much needed mini-vacation brings us to Seattle today. A short 2.5hr flight from the Orange County airport, we're thrown into a strange city filled with abundant public art and green trees. We left California around noon and got into the Sea-Tac airport before 3pm. After waiting on the wrong baggage carousel for our …
... large and it feels different than a foreign hotel room. We spent just enough time there to drop our bags. The original plan had to be put on hold because of the time traffic took up at the border... but we still wanted to see something today.
John read that there is free street parking on Sundays in the downtown area. We headed for the outdoor park called Olympic Sculpture Park. It is set right on the water and has a number of large art ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alexis Hotel - A Kimpton Hotel Seattle
Will return to the Alexis
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!
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
