“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Just spent 2 nights at the Alexis. Just wanted to say that the customer service was top notch and everyone was so friendly and professional. It is rare to find genuine customer service nowadays and the Alexis should get an award for having such a great a great, genuine team of staff. The Alexis also surprised me and my partner on our anniversary with a room upgrade, champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries and a personalized card. It was very thoughtful and appreciated. The room itself was extremely spacious, almost too much room for 2 people. I like the openness of the room.
The location of the Alexis is extremely convenient. We walked to all the downtown shops and centres in 15 mins! It is also super close harbour which has the new ferris wheel and the pike place market.
The only problem we had with the hotel is the parking. There is only valet parking for $40 a night. The only other option was to to public parking on our own which is super inconvenient because my partner and I got up everyday at 6:30 to walk to the parking lot and move the car and pay again later in the evening. We absolutely hated that. I can't imagine staying longer and doing that every morning. In terms of future stays, if I am driving, I definitely would be hesistant to stay with the Alexis again. Otherwise, I was quite impressed with the customer service and the overall hotel experience.

I'm so glad you enjoyed our hotel! Us locals try not to travel by car downtown (it's tough for us too!), so we recommend the Link Light Rail to get here from the airport, and we know just what buses to take to get you anywhere in Seattle. Let us know if we can help you plan a car-free trip!

We stayed 3 nights at the Alexis and were very pleased. The staff allowed us to check-in early. The room was small, but the furnishings were high quality. The room didn't have a coffee maker (which I was disppointed by) but the hotel offers free coffee and tea in the lobby. In the afternoon there is free wine and cocktails in the lobby. The location is convenient to everything in downtown Seattle. We were able to walk to the light rail station, Pike's Place Market and lots of shopping. We enjoyed both the bar and restaurant in the hotel. We would definitely stay again.

It was quite late when we finally checked in and the vibe of the lobby was very festive: a small check-in area and people gathered around in party attire-definitely a holiday party going on. But due to some snafu at check-in, we were told that the hotel was completely sold out. We were disappointed but even more tired from having traveled from New York and asked them how this could be remedied. The front desk staff apologized profusely and made arrangements for us to spend a night at a sister hotel which was about 5 blocks away. That hotel didn't have the same atmosphere at all, but we were there just to sleep. We accepted everyone's apologies and went to that hotel for 1 night and then returned to 'our' hotel for the remaining 2 nights.
Well, let me just say that the hotel staff at the Alexis Hotel couldn't have been nicer to us from the moment we checked in for our 2nd night until we checked out on the 3rd. They righted our situation as much as could be asked for and I have to say, not only was our room clean and spacious and well-appointed, but the entire atmosphere of this jewel of a hotel will definitely keep us coming back here whenever we come back to Seattle, which I hope will be soon. The location is great, just a few minutes walk to Pike's Market, and we walked to various restaurants in the area and even walked to the ferry that took us over to Bainbridge Island. All together, atmosphere, extremely friendly service and terrific location is what make a good hotel great!

I am SO glad to hear our staff was able to take such great care of you, even after we were sold out and had to send you to one of our sister properties. I am sorry your check-in was a smooth as we would have liked it. We hope to see you again soon!

My husband and I spent another wonderful night at the Alexis this past Saturday. This stay included the canine member of our family as well.
From our friendly, proficient registrationist, Kayelyn, at check in to check out with the always engaging, hospitable Mr. Mike Hill and literally every single staff member we came into contact with the Alexis is most deffinately our favorite place to call home base for our weekend excursions downtown. We stayed in another beautifully kept, wonderfully decorated room and had our first occasion to entertain friends in our room following a night on the town. Everyone in our group was comfortable, had a great late night snack thanks to room service, and had a great time.
We love the Alexis for many reasons and will continue to visit at any opportunity.
Cheers to all for a job well done.

I've stayed at the Alexis a number of times this year for business and I absolutely love visiting Seattle just so I can stay at the Alexis. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautiful and the location is perfect.

We decided to go up to Seattle for a quick holiday trip to see the sights. When we checked in the staff was super friendly and attentive and upgraded to a larger room which was great! The room was comfortable and nicely designed. The Alexis is a great hotel that was in the perfect location to get around to all the sights quickly and easily. As always Kimpton didn't disappoint!

Stayed recently at the Alexis (not for the first time). Great location, massive rooms, excellent price, first class staff, sensible public areas. A bit overheated but that was the only negative. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a central Seattle location.
