“Wonderful boutique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

The Alexis is a Kimpton Hotel, which is a wonderful group of hotels. The decor is quite beautiful and every person on the staff is warm and friendly and most important, very helpful. They welcome pets, offering dogsitting and dogwalking services. I especially love the elegant coffee and tea service offered every morning in the lobby as well as the wine hour every afternoon. Once you join Kimpton InTouch, wifi is free in your room as well as the lobby. The hotel locations are usually excellent and I would go out of my way to stay in a Kimpton.

I could list off a string of superlatives that would fill the page so I'll instead opt to be a bit more concise. Simply put, this is the best hotel in Seattle that is run by people that truly do put Seattle's best foot forward. Helpful, welcoming, warm and friendly. I'm not a celebrity and not important to anyone other than my dog, but staying here made me feel like I was a VIP at every turn. The staff was a fantastic group and it comes from the top down - epitomized by the general manager who truly is one of the great ones and totally gets what hospitality and care are all about. I'm a huge fan the place and those who work there. Do yourself a favor, stay here... and then book an extra night because you won't want to leave!

While we enjoyed our stay at Alexis, I preferred Monaco. The Alexis room was very small and had a strange smell. It's a nice hotel and I would stay again, but given the coice, I would go back to Hotel Monaco.

Stayed September 2011, travelled as a couple

My business trip got extended unexpectedly and I found the Alexis on Expedia app and said it had rooms. I just showed up and showed them the Expedia rate and they gave it to me no questions ask. Room was super clean and elegant. We had 2 Queen suite with couch, balcony, kitchenette. What a nice place to relax! We also had a small outdoor balcony. The location is perfect for downtown Seattle sight seeing. About half way between Pioneer Square and Pike Market. The staff were extremely friendly and service oriented. For the price it was much nicer than I expected. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: ask for suite with couch/chairs and balcony not on street side.

Excellent location.....such attention to detail! We had a "fire" experience.....not a big deal..but the way they handled it all? ...and the special "perk' for taking good care of us during the evacuation.....??( Lasted just minutes...early evening..). Love staying in a hotel that absolutely caters to its guests...even in the craziest circumstances..Thank you for a fabulous time...staff was amazing! Right in the middle of Seattle. ...a short jaunt to the Market...and the shops!!!!.SO fun!

Room Tip: Excellent location...even so close to the street ..You just can't go wrong...
