I travel to Seattle ~ quarterly on business, and the Alexis is now my first choice hotel. Great location -- walking distance to the waterfront even with a 4 yr old (who was with me on my last trip). Clean rooms. Wonderful staff (although this is somewhat redundant with saying "it's a Kimpton"). Free "raid the mini-bar" for Kimpton In Touch members. Good breakfast experience at the Library Bistro (standard hotel breakfast prices, but better than standard egg white omelet).
Now for the biased part of the review: On my most recent stay, my room was upgraded. I can only say - Wow. I have no idea if the EMP suite is good value generally, but as an upgrade it was absolutely fantastic. Corner room on top floor. You can see the waterfront with the Ferris wheel (aka Seattle Great Wheel) and the ferries docking. The suite is huge, which provides sound insulation from the usual hotel noise (doors closing, etc.), and the high floor reduces street noise. It made me want to go to Seattle in February more often!
