My wife and I returned to the scene of our engagement, nearly twenty years later, and the Alexis continues to impress in every way. Our room was unique, the service both personal and classy, and the location is walkable to every downtown Seattle destination. The staff made us feel extra special with a few complimentary treats (so secretive and special... More

I could be almost happy living forever in my room at the Alexis. That's how great it was. Spacious seating area, beautiful decor, even yoga mats. Attentive front desk and valet, wonderful location. There was also a beautiful terrace for coffee outside. Oh but wait- there was no coffee machine in my room. .. and when I ordered it from... More

My sister and I had a Seattle sister's getaway and stayed at the Alexis. After looking forever in downtown for a classy and reasonably priced hotel, I decided on the Alexis having never heard of it or the Kimpton line. WOW! We were impressed. From the moment we got there we were welcomed by the staff and felt super swanky.... More

This hotel is in a great location and within walking distance to pretty much everywhere. What I loved was a free upgrade, vino hour (yes free wine between 5-6pm everyday!), free apples, yoga mat in room, cotton buds/pads in room, privacy survival pack if ÿou didn't get room cleaned and big room, bed and bathroom. What I didn't like was... More

This hotel is just a short walk from the fish market and within easy reach of most of Seattles main attractions. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed with limited street noise considering the central location. The bookstore bar has a welcoming atmosphere and more Whiskey than you'll ever have time to drink, the bar staff know their drinks and... More

A warning to people using the valet service at the Alexis Hotel: The valet returned my car with a huge dent in the door but he didn't tell me about it. Unfortunately I didn't notice the dent until I had left, and thus I have no claim against the hotel. When I received my car, the valet handed me my... More

We stayed in the author's suite and it was lovely! The decor and the books were all nicely done. We were there for our anniversary and the location was great for all things downtown Seattle. We could walk pretty much everywhere we wanted to go. The service was good and the employees were friendly.

The Fireplace Suites are a unanimous staff favorite! They are such lovely, cozy suites. We’re so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the Alexis served you well on your anniversary. Next time you stay with us you can try a Spa Suite with a jetted tub, or just stick to what you know and love. Either... More

This is a perfect hotel. Well located, impeccably run and designed by people who know what a hotel needs. The lobby is large and sensibly laid out. There's coffee in the morning, water for early morning joggers, PC and printer, and hugely capable front desk staff (Eric was great!). Cute detail is the bowl with water and snacks for dogs....

We’re so glad you love the Alexis! We strive to provide all-around incredible service, so it’s great to hear we delivered. The One Bedroom Suites are quite magical. The jetted tub, spacious layout, and unique themed décor make those suites a fantastic choice while staying with us. We’re very excited to announce a total revamp of our gym- it's actually... More
