Hotel Alex Johnson Rapid City, Curio Collection by Hilton
Ranked #9 of 49 Hotels in Rapid City
Reviewed November 23, 2011

Recently stayed 2 nights at The Hotel Alex Johnson and thoroughly enjoyed the time spent there. Suite was very clean and the check in and out went smoothly. Front desk staff were quite helpful and responsive to questions. Parking first night (Saturday) was available across the street from hotel and next night parked in upper deck of garage (no charge) about 1 block from hotel. Hotel's central location is handy and pub next to lobby is convenient for evening drink if desired. Nice TV's in each room of suite. Would definitely stay there again.

Booked my stay without checking any details. What a surprise! Would recommend this hotel to everyone. The staff were a little off-hand in the way they responded to questions, but the ambience ans the central location more than made up for this. Staff in the pub were fantastic, keen to give advice on local beers worth trying. You have to try the Firehouse Brwery around the corner. Give the coffee shop in the hotel a miss, but the restaurant over the road does a passable breakfast and a brilliant evening meal. If I get back to Rapid City, this is the hotel I'll be staying at.

After spending the night at the Alex Johnson for the 4th time in about 10 months, are car would not start the next morning. The staff went above and beyond to help us start the vehicle so we could get on are way to a garage to change the battery.
The service is always great. The rooms are always clean. The staff does what it can to accomodate your needs. We will continue to stay at the Alex Johnson when we go to Rapid City.

The Hotel Alex Johnson was a pleasant surprise. I was looking for a reasonably priced night of lodging in downtown Rapid City. It was great to find that and so very much more. The king "no pets" room on the eighth floor was clean, extremely comfortable and designed with great thought to detail. The room was not spacious but since it is advertised as an historic property I was not expecting a big room. The amenities were all well placed and everything was in good working order. Parking was not a problem since there were several parking places within a block or two of the property. The location to the downtown area was a real selling point for the Alex Johnson. Rapid City has been very successful in its downtown renewal project and it was wonderful to wonder through the shops. I especially was in awe of the Prairie Edge Gallery. What an amazing collection of Lakota art. I will be back and will stay at the Alex Johnson.

We were lucky enough to have corner room on 7th floor with great view...one of the cleanest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in; a bit small, but certainly adequate. Walls seem to be a bit thin, as could clearly hear woman in next room coughing. Bathroom was bright and spotless; only suggestion would be to replace dingy switch plate with a new white one. Roof top lounge had delicious drinks & food, but a bit pricey. Service was excellent throughout the property...will definitely stay there again!

Love the historical part of the hotel. Great staff. We went Halloween weekend and they had it all decorated; looked great. Nice Irish pub with a one man band which was lots of fun. Rooftop lounge is very nice but also very pricey.
Nice sized rooms, but the bathrooms are awful. Very dated, dripping faucets and we even had mold in the shower/tub! Yuck......I love the hotel but guarantee next time I will check out the bathroom before checking in and if it is like the last time we went, we will be staying somewhere else. Its a shame because for us, that was the only draw back but a big one.

Room Tip: Check the bathrooms, we should have requested a different room. The faucetts were leaking all night...
