We enjoyed staying at an historic hotel that has been very well renovated. The charm of the old hotel was kept in the lobby, but the rooms updated, though can be small and cozy. The view from the upstairs restaurant was beautiful and we wished we could have used the outdoor patio, but it was winter. It would be fun...

I was glad that we stayed at this hotel doing our one-night stop at Rapid City. The hotel is very centrally located and has a great two levels rooftop bar. You can see the mountains on one side and the city on the other side. We didn't get upgraded to a suite even with Hilton Diamond which was disappointing but...

Best of being historic and updated! Great hotel and make sure you check out the Vertex bar/restaurant on the top floor. Incredible ambiance! The DJ Tom played great selections on vinyl - great sound too! Terrific location downtown, great restaurants nearby as well. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Hotel Alex Johnson to learn the history of the haunted hotel. The valet's Thomas, Andrew, and Philip, were especially helpful and took us for a tour of the hotel! The front desk staff were extremely friendly and full of information.

I stayed at the Alex Johnson for two nights while exploring the Rapid City/Black Hills area and could not have been more pleased. The rooms aren't big according to new hotel standards, but I was not there to sit in the room. :P My room was clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Every staff member I encountered was friendly and helpful,...

The building is fun. Being a historic marker of Rapid City don't expect a huge bathroom, wide hallways or a spacious and swift elevator. The staff could use a bit more training as they seem to get stuck with simple things. Example : valet had my car keys but couldn't find them. It took almost 24 hours for them to...

Great ambiance and caring staff. One of the best hotel bars I have ever been to! Parking is not the best however. You have to walk about two blocks at a garage without an elevator. Starbucks and chubby chipmunk chocolate are great little places.
