I had a great experience staying here over a Saturday night. I got a nice quiet corner room that was well appointed. The window coverings are not blackout, though, so bring your sleep mask if you need it totally dark to sleep well. Access the the rooftop restraurant/lounge is a huge perk of staying here. It was fairly cold but the big fire pits on the outside decks made for a very memorable experience sitting around warmth with a terrific view of the city lights at night conversing with the nicest couple while enjoying a glass of wine. This hotel has loads of charm. The front lobby has a huge fireplace and comfortable couches. Just off of the lobby is a great coffee shop as well as an Irish Pub, so in bad weather you wouldn't need to leave the premises to still have a great stay. The hotel is located, though, in the heart of the historic district with many food/drink or entertainment options within easy walking distance. I used the exercise room the morning after my overnight stay and found the equipment to be in good working order. I will definitely be staying here on my next trip to Rapid City.
