Kimpton Alexis Hotel

Reviewed 26 December 2012

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.

We stayed here for business for a few days. We were very delighted in the decor but even more so by the amenities and the service. We took advantage of the Hot Cocoa Bar in the lobby everyday as well as the wine hour every evening. The room was cosy, quiet and well appointed. The location could not be beat. We walked to everything! Will come back for sure!
