Really great place to stay in a fun town.... from the statues of Presidents all over town to the coffee shops and boutique gift stores... Hotel Alex did not disappoint. Great vibe in the lobby along with Starbucks and an Irish Pub on the ground floor and fine dining on the rooftop with great views! Make plans to stay!

Hotel's Favorite
I was nervous about this hotel as some of the reviews were pretty critical. And, our first experience was almost negative as the valet parking was packed - but, there was a free lot (weekends and holidays) across the street! The greeting was awesome and the upgraded rooms nice. NOTE: this is not a new hotel - it is very old and to preserve the integrity - the rooms were not enlarged to what we expect in 2020. That said - the hotel was clean and fresh and special attention paid to keep it clean. Actually, a bit to clean as the shower/bathtub was slick as it was so clean. The only small complaint was the noise as there is a slight gap below the door - but it was minor. The restaurant is fantastic! We had the fish tacos and salmon with a wedge salad - very very filling!!! And the staff were engaged with great recommendations and chit chat. Not everyone wears masks and no business can constantly monitor all guests - so yes, it was annoying - but you cannot fix stupid- and we just went with the flow. But far more folks were wearing them than not.

We pulled into Rapid City at 3:30 PM and checked into the Hilton Double Tree Hotel Alex Johnson (360 Main Street), This was a King room at $162 rate in room 502. The only drawback is there is no parking other than $1 an hour city street parking, but the hotel provided Valet parking at $18 a night which we went for. Going to give this hotel a 8.5 hinge rating as everything is nice and upgraded but the structure (close to being the tallest in town) is very dated (narrow elevators and hallways). This is an older hotel but well maintained! Walking around the town is very enjoyable. One very interesting feature in the town is that at about every intersection there are full scale bronze statues of all the former presidents (quite impressive) on each corner.

My son (23 yo) and I stayed here for a night and loved this place. It is convenient to Mt Rushmore, which was the reason we were in Rapid City. I loved the way the double room was set up with each of us having our own room. The Irish pub had a decent selection of food and the rooftop bar has a great view of the city. We stayed on the 8th floor, not knowing the ghost stories involving that floor. Sorry to disappoint anyone, but we had no visitors in 819. This is just a great old place!

This hotel is historic. Many famous people have stayed here. The hotel manager, I forget her name, was so kind and helpful each day we were there. She offered a personalized level of service that was much appreciated. Valet service was great. Location was great. Rapid City is totally awesome.
