    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.

    Unimpressed with the Alexis


    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

    Great Hotel - Super Location!


    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


    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.

    Great Hotel!


    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.

    We started the morning with room service then walked down to the water front to see the harbor and Pike Market. It was fun to see the original Starbucks and the other sites, but it felt awfully touristy to me and, being a Sunday, was crowded as all get out! We made our way through the market, found a French bakery to buy some lunch, then ate on a …

    We got up early, ordered some breakfast (and a couple of box lunches), then headed down to the harbor to go whale watching. Our trip was through Island Mariner, and they did a great job! There was a naturalist on board the vessel who narrated almost the entire day, teaching us about the San Juan Islands, how they were settled, the area's flora and …

    ... after customs, we got the Seattle Light Railway into Seattle and found our hotel, which is AMAZING! There are fairy lights in the trees outside and our room is basically bigger than our entire flat was in London. Plus, they left us some congratulations strawberries! We were pretty tired by this point, so we went foraging for some food, very nearly succumbing to the Subway round the corner, but then going ...

    Ahhhh! The Northwest! The smell is familiar, the air is recognizable, and the climate is comfortable. It's weird how it can be that distinct, but there's nothing like it... Left the Spokane Valley after some breakfast at the Cottage Cafe, with a four-hour drive ahead of us to Seattle. Outside of Spokane, it was apparent this drive was not going to be all sun! The winds picked up immediately and blew our little car all over the freeway! That, ...

    The second bar was underground (don't I sound cool? But I actually mean geographically) and had so many things hanging from the ceiling you couldn't actually tell how high it was. It was some sort of Mexican themed thing, with red lights and sombreros everywhere. It was pretty pumping, and I shouted us all two pitchers of some very delicious beer for $15. Probably not the best idea when I realised how big the pitchers ...
