Great hotel. Very clean and friendly staff. Within walking distance of the heart of the city. Rooms are large and very nice. This is our first time staying here since the switch from Kimpton to Sonesta. I highly recommend this hotel!

Hotel's Favorite
We had a phenomenal stay at the Kimpton Alexis. The staff is extremely professional and hospitable. Kristin (I hope I'm spelling her name right, we spoke Friday November 13th in the evening) went out of her way to help us and really enabled a great experience for us. The rooms are spacious, well-appointed, have great beds, and all the amenities are of high quality. The location of the hotel is very good as you are just a block from the water, in a safe neighborhood, and have lots of great restaurants nearby. The happy hour was also very nice. Highly recommend - we hope to return!

Aaron - what a great note about your staycation. Kristin is a marvel at the desk and we are lucky to have her. The hotel has 122 rooms which are all different shapes and sizes and can really make a stay special. The Alexis is now a Sonesta hotel - very cool brand with a ton of hotels across the country. We are delighted to be the Royal Sonesta Alexis - gateway to the Seattle waterfront. come back and see us now! Tom.

Thank you for a wonderful stay! Our room was massive and very clean. Everything felt COVID safe- ice came in a plastic bag, everyone was wearing masks. Thanks especially to Raul and Christine at the front desk and Deontay at valet who were so kind and helpful.

Thanks Roadie! We work very hard to give our guests at least some small sense of comfort in these 'unprecedented times' ( you need to use that phrase once a day apparently). Raul and Christine are rock stars and have great dedication to our guests and making sure that the Royal Sonesta Alexis is top of mind everytime you look for a Seattle escape! Come back soon and never hesitate to reach out if I can assist in any manner. Tom.

We stayed at The Alexis Royal Sonesta Hotel when visited Seattle for a small family extended weekend. The staff was extremely friendly and personable while quite cautiously following all the Covid protocol for a safe stay. Although the amenities were minimal, Evan and Christine, made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our visit. Our room was clean, freshly sanitized and well stocked with towels and all the accouterments we could ask for. Any requests were just a phone call away. The king bed was comfortable and a roll away bed was provided. It was a beautiful spa suite! It was more than we had imagined! The valet did a fantastic job of getting our luggage to our room and ensuring our car was safely tucked away in the garage. Being in downtown Seattle we are fortunate enough to have nearby restaurants that delivered to us. Morning coffee was available in the lobby as well as with the coffee bar in our room. My family and I felt safe and comfortable staying at the Alexis Royal Sonesta Hotel. Both Evan and Christine acknowledged us by name each time they saw us. I would definitely stay at here again on my next trip to Seattle! I highly recommend this hotel! The price we paid for the value, location and ultra personal experience we received, even with Covid restrictions, was well worth the price! Photos included show the beautiful spa bathroom and the view of the ferris wheel from our room as well as some local sites within walking distance. Pike Place Market is a mere 4 blocks away.

Thanks so much for your notes about the Generational Party Weekend! We have worked very hard to find ways to make the experience at the Royal Sonesta not only safe, but fun! Winter in Seattle is never a delight, so being able to cocoon in your room is the only way to go, I always suggest that you spend some time counting the days until Spring... Come back soon and try out the bookstore bar and some of the great shopping options in the block. The good times will come back soon! Tom.
