Love Hotel Alex Johnson. Feels like stepping back in time. Great history and character thru out. Very original. Great bar on main level, plus a more exclusive rooftop bar.

The hotel was nicely located with plenty of dining choices in walking distance. Small Room but nicely decorated and clean. Enjoyed walking around the hotel and looking at the old photos. Parking was about a block away and on the top level of a public parking garage which was not real convenient but, hey, it was free. All in all... More

We were booked into this hotel by another party and probably would not have come across it on our own - but what fun! Great location right downtown, across from a good restaurant and with included discounts from area businesses. We took advantage of their Starbucks deal in the morning. The lobby is most unique, the bed was excellent, everything... More

Outstanding historic hotel with great service. The receptionists, Nell and Jenna, are fantastic, always ensuring that my stay is enjoyable. They informed me about the dance taking place in the ballroom and cordially checked in with me to make sure that I was enjoying myself.

We've stayed many times over the years. It's been kept up and renovated. Last visit they were changing the coffee shop. The penthouse bar is really nice in the evening. We'll go back again this summer.
