I stayed here during my 4 day visit to Seattle. It is a nice cozy hotel in Seattle Downtown. Extremely well placed amidst Seattle attractions, restaurants and shopping areas. The best part is that all the staff especially at the reception is friendly, very helpful and professional. Highly recommended to stay here.

The Alexis lives up to the reputation of a Kimpton Hotel. Quite simply one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. Every staff member from front desk to custodial was pleasant and engaging. Free WiFi if you register with the Kimpton website. The bed was very comfortable and most important, in my opinion, was the fact that there were full-sized... More

My new favorite hotel in Downtown Seattle! Quirky boutique hotel in a historic building. Location is awesome, just a few blocks to the Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, and Pioneer Square neighborhood. Very friendly yet professional staff. Antonio was very knowledgeable of the area and helped me get into a room I really liked early. Cody and Sam also... More

As with every Kimpton hotel I've stayed in, the Alexis was wonderful in its own unique way. The room was lovely, and the staff very human and warm and friendly and helpful. I didn't have enough time to explore the hotel at all, but everything I did experience was impeccable. Fine room service breakfast, delivered exactly as I requested--I wanted... More

I loved this hotel. I can't say enough nice things about this hotel. I was in room 201. The room was a king with a desk and a living room area (sofa and chair) There was a wood-burning fireplace that was surrounded by books. My only neutral comments about my room were that they might consider adding a little more... More

Hi, Jenn! We’re delighted to hear that you loved the Alexis and that you had the opportunity to enjoy the fireplace and décor. Every guest room is laid out a little differently, we’re sorry that this one in particular didn’t have quite enough counter space. This is definitely something that will be addressed as plans are in motion for a... More

Stayed here for a Monday night when in town on business. Asked for and received a quiet out of the way room. Very clean room had a small sitting area, flat screen TV, and an overly large bathroom. Bed was comfy with clean sheets above and below the comforter. Bar in lobby was very tempting with Seattle's largest selection of... More

Everybody who worked at this hotel was super amazing, especially Sam at the front desk. The hotel was easy walking distance to Pikes Place Market and the room was beautiful. My dog was with me and they even had dog treats for her!
