Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Wondering if all these 5 star reviews were paid for. $400/night to stay at an empty hotel with no room service, no room cleaning, nothing. VERY overpriced. They should lower the rates during COVID-19 and disclose the lack of amenities BEFORE you book the room NOT after.

The room was designed for younger clientele. The bed, sofa were all low to the ground. A stool was provided. Not a single chair w/in the room.

Great little touches here and there. We were there just prior to xmas, so there were holiday movies playing in the lobby, a cocoa bar, the usual wine happy hour was great, sharp and friendly staff. And the restaurant downstairs was amazing. Very much hoping to come back soon!

Was a wonderful stay with helpful and friendly staff.

Downtown hotel, low key Excellent restaurant/bar Easy to deal with

The staff was great, and the hotel was in walking distance of the symphony, the Fish Market, excellent restaurants -- and a couple of Starbucks. The free coffee served in the lobby in the a.m. was what another guest called "pee coffee." It was horrible (one sip and you knew), and that's why we didn't want to eat at the hotel restaurant when Cheyanne (sp?) told us it was the same coffee. Other than that, we would stay at the Alexis again.

Safe, secure, allowing one to quietly relax in this ever busy world, even little fiddo .

That place is in the heart of the city , surrounded by some of the best places for shopping, eating, and gorgeous view just a few minutes away.and If your planning a wedding, I would look in to what they have to offer...

Tried to take a bath and the water was lukewarm at best and the drain was very slow. Alerted staff and they sort of fixed it, but it wasn't really a hot bath the second time around.

The Kimpton Alexis in Seatlle totally exceeded expectations. Very unique little place with huge, artistically hip rooms. Nice to have a bar downstairs for drinks and food. Room Service prices were WAY over the top high. Avoid at all costs!!!

Love Kimpton hotels, very well located walking distance to the water and Pike's place. Would stay again

We booked a queen room, but I swear this bed was more like a double than a queen since we sleep on a queen at home! I enjoyed the art work that was included in the room, but found the room itself to be cramped around the bed itself. One wrong move and your knee or shin will end up on the corner of the bed frame or the corner of the TV unit. There were no lights in the room that lite up the room brightly. There were three table lamps, diffused ceiling lights, and a small row of lights by the TV.

Hotel staff was great: they sent up a pot of tea when I arrived late night; stored bags no fuss. Hot cocoa treat in lobby on cold rainy Seattle afternoon. Prime location few blocks from Pike Market but quiet. Large well appointed room. Bookstore Cafe large selection of scotch and yummy breakfast.

Staff was super helpful with recommendations for restaurants and activities. Bed was comfortable and the room was large

FIRST BEWARE, you will be charged an additional $52 per night (including tax) for parking! The decor is well, tacky especially in the room. Looks like an year old lady with high blue hair did the decorating. Although there was room for a sofa, there was none. Just one ugly chair. There is no dresser in the room so forget about staying for a week unless you want to just keep pulling things out of your suitcase. Most boutique hotels I stay in at least have a sundries shop or store where you can purchase minor items and snacks at a slightly higher price to pay for the convenience. Not THIS place! They are out to suck out every last dollar you have in your pocket! Instead of offering some items at a slightly higher cost for convenience, they charge $5.00 for a $.99 bag of chips. A 6oz can of cashews was $15.00!!! HAHAHAHA! FORGET ABOUT MAKING COFFEE WHILE YOU SHOWER! This place doesn't even have a coffee maker in the room. Again, most boutique hotels and well most ALL hotels, have coffee makers in the rooms! All this being said, the one thing good I can say about this hotel is that the staff are amazing!!!!! It's too bad the hotel doesn't live up to the quality of the staff.

My husband and I stayed at the Alexis for our anniversary. We were given a very large room because we had booked an in-room massage. However the massage was canceled by a staff member the morning the service was supposed to take place. We were assured by the staff that they would take care of rescheduling the service. Unfortunately this took being passed off to 3 different staff members before the service was rescheduled to our satisfaction. Not the hotel's best moment but the rest of the experience was great. We particularly enjoyed & appreciated the Bookstore bar, the parking attendants and our way above average sized room.

Graham, certainly disappointed to read that your stay was less than you expected. The state mandated guidelines for operating a hotel/restaurant or outlet are pretty tough, but the team here will do anything we can to make your stay special. Come back soon and we will make it super special

Bob! Thanks for the great note, in Seattle that is a harsh thing to read about our coffee. The Bookstore is so much more than coffee - but your notes are going right to the top - me!
