We Stayed at the Alex Johnson for a few days around the 20 - 21 of September. We used it as a base to get to the black Hills to see the Rushmore, Crazy Horse, monuments, Hill City and take in the beautiful scenery within a few miles of Rapid City. We stayed on the 8th floor room 804 next to a supposedly haunted room (803). The room was a corner unit and was quite large with windows on two walls. The room was very clean. The king sized bed was very comfortable. The view from the eighth floor was quit nice.The bathroom was nice sized and had a Jacuzzi tub. The TV was a big screen with cable. I really can't say anything bad about our room. It was big and bright and very nice. The lobby of this supposedly haunted hotel is ornate and beautiful. The food was great at the connecting bar next door. We did a little drinking upstairs on the roof. Great service all around from the front desk, room service and the bar-restaurant up and down. We really loved the South Dakota - Black hills area and the Alex Johnson was a great place to to stay. Classy nice place. As for being haunted... I saw nothing unusual, but my wife had what she thought was an unusually scary dream. A woman with a scarf or white veil on her head with huge dark sad eyes was motioning with both hands close to her face for my wife to come to her. She was very close and my wife jerked awake. I'm the one who wanted to see the lady from room 813 who jumped out the window or was thrown and haunts the hotel. I had my Sony handy cam all ready. Oh well, maybe next time. I do reccomend the Alex Johnson. Only thing I can say against it was parking was a short block away in a ramp. The 5:00 AM trains that go through Rapid City will wake you if you are a light sleeper like me with their eerie horn blasts that last for a good ten minutes or more. Over all a great place to stay.
