• Bar & Café
Seattle, de grootste stad van de staat Washington (580.000 inwoners), is een stad met trendy winkeltjes en cafés. De inmiddels international bekende keten Starbucks kent hier zijn bakermat. In de stad is ook de muziekstroming ‘grunge’ ontstaan (met als beroemdste exponent Nirvana) en nog steeds speelt muziek een grote rol in deze leuke stad. Het bekendste bouwwerk is de Space Needle.
"Dog friendly and amazing staff"
My husband and I used one of their last-minute discount deals for a staycation on a Sunday night for a King room. We were able to check in a couple hours early to a clean (I have a VERY sensitive nose and it did not smell musty, doggy, or like perfume - just clean) and comfortable room. Wifi was completely adequate for streaming movies. The front desk staff (Lara, Leora, Emily, and Shante) were genuinely friendly and wanted to help us have a great stay. They were especially sweet to our old dog. They even watched her for us behind the front desk for a few hours while we went to dinner and had a water bowl and dog bed ready for her. Free wine and house made snacks served in the lobby that were actually delicious and good quality. The location is great for walking around downtown shopping, Pike Place market, and Seattle Art Museum. We will definitely be making staycations at a Kimpton hotel in Seattle a regular event. Also, when you have a Kimpton rewards number you get $10 off at the restaurant or mini-bar and some other little perks.
"Family time in Seattle "
Words cannot describe the excellent customer service we received while staying at the Kimpton Alexis. From the time you pull up front to the time you leave you are taken care of. We were traveling with our 11 month son and as any parent knows it can some times be stressful when traveling with our babes but somehow that all disappeared the moment we walked in the doors. The doorman are awesome and are a wealth of information, one even got us an umbrella on our way out to explorer the sights. The front desk girls are so kind and courteous and have a way of making you feel at home. The hotel it's self is clean and stylish. When we arrived into our room, the complimentary pack and play was already assembled and it looked brand new. Which for all you mama and daddy's out there we all know how important that is. We also loved their complimentary wine hour from 5-6pm in the lobby. The hotel is centrally located and in walking distance from the waterfront, ferries wheel. pikes place, Seattle Art Museum and so much more. You cannot go wrong with this hotel. Enjoy xo
"Extremely musty smell, slow Wi-Fi, cramped room, so-so service"
Caveats: After reading through many reviews (after the fact), Iâ€™m convinced that the difference between the â€œnormalâ€ rooms and the suite rooms is vast in terms of room size and room smell, so keep that in mind with my review (I was in a normal King room). Also, my trip was Tuesday night through Friday morning, so I can only comment on weekday noises, etc. Lastly, I usually stay at the Monaco a few blocks away, so I canâ€™t help but compare the two. But given that they are at similar price points, I think this is fair. Based on my experience at the Alexis, even if I compare it to my â€œworstâ€ stay at the Monaco, the Monaco is a much better hotel. I may even upgrade my Monaco review, if this is what the other alternatives are like. I travel to Seattle at least 4 times a year, and I will not be returning to the Alexis. Iâ€™m putting the Alexis at a 2.5 but rounding down to a 2, given the hotel class, per-night price, and the fact that my clothes STILL smell more than 24 hours later. Room Size (King Room): Very close quarters! The room is long and narrow, so there is only about 18 inches between the bed and the walls. The bed has a 4-post metal frame, which is great in theory but if youâ€™re not used to it AND you donâ€™t have much clearance on either side, be prepared to have some close calls with hitting your head or other body part on it as you go around the corner to get into/out of bed. Because the room is long, the TV is on the wall opposite the bed (and thereâ€™s a fair amount of floor space between the foot of the bed and said wall), so the TV is much further away than usual if you want to watch it from bed. Winner: Monaco, even if I pick the smallest room Iâ€™ve ever stayed in. Room noise from the street: Pretty negligible, although because I stayed during the week Iâ€™m sure the noises from the street and the hallway were less than they would be during the weekend. Itâ€™s on 1st, right downtown, so donâ€™t stay here if things like sirens during the night would bother you. Winner: draw Other room noise: You can hear people above you walking around, something that Iâ€™ve never experienced at the Monaco. Winner: Monaco Hallway layout: This is where the Alexis has a huge leg up over other hotels, in my opinion. The floor is a half-hub-and-spoke model: you get off the elevators and are faced with 2 or 3 (I canâ€™t remember) hallways to go down. The hallways themselves wind around, which is great for noise control. Most hotels are really long hallways, which means that the sound carries easily. At the Alexis, the curvature of the hallway dampens some noise. Winner: Alexis, by far. Room smell: Like others on here have said, certain rooms (or floors) have extremely pungent smells. It smelled very musty, and I was embarrassed when I would go to the office every day, because my clothes smelled. 24 hours after leaving the hotel, my clothes still smell. Youâ€™ve been warned. Winner: I have had one issue at the Monaco with smell, but it was a strong cigarette smell and they moved me quickly. Given the reviews it seems like the musty smell is ubiquitous at the Alexis, so I have to declare the Monaco the winner. Bathroom: Unlike at the Monaco, you can actually pump shampoo or conditioner into your hand without the shower head dripping on it! The water pressure leaves much to be desired, though. Otherwise the bathroom was fine. Winner: draw Misc room: Very limited outlets on one side of the bed. The other has an outlet/USB contraption which was nice, but that was it. The thermostat in the room will go down as far as 65, but somehow it senses when youâ€™re not in the room, so be prepared to come back to a warmer room than youâ€™d like. Fortunately, since the room was so small, it didnâ€™t take long to cool down. Each room has an umbrella (awesome) and a nice ironing board and iron, which is great for business travelers like me. Winner: draw Wi-Fi: Very slow! I normally do video chat with my spouse when Iâ€™m travelling on business, but it was just impossible on the Alexis network. So then I decided to try a wired connection. Umm no such luck, there was no Ethernet cord and the socket into which an Ethernet cord would have been inserted was completely missing from the holder! So I called the front desk. It took several minutes for the person who answered the phone to understand me (he had a thick accent)â€¦he kept trying to give me the Wi-Fi password. They finally sent someone up with an Ethernet cord, but it took the maintenance person quite a while to fix the connector thing. Once that was done, however, the connection was so spottyâ€”it was as if the connectors werenâ€™t working properlyâ€”I gave up entirely and decided to use my precious data and video chat over LTE. Sigh. Winner: Monaco. Elevators: Fine, but sometimes really slow! Winner: Monaco (never any issues with slowness) Fitness rooms: Thereâ€™s a cardio room on the 4th floor and a climbing wall/weight lifting room on the 3rd floor. I donâ€™t think this is the most advisable layout, because then you have guests opening and closing the (noisy) doors to the fitness rooms, which I imagine would be disruptive (my room was far enough away). The cardio room has 2 treadmills and 2 ellipticals. I believe the Monaco is a much bigger hotel but its fitness room is the same size (and is always excruciatingly warm). Winner: Alexis Restaurant (Bookstore Bar): Cozy; I went for dinner alone on a weeknight and the waiter was attentive. The burger wasnâ€™t really anything to write home about, though. However, itâ€™s quieter than the Monaco restaurant and had better service. Winner: Alexis Lobby: Definitely not as inviting as the Monaco, but itâ€™ll do. Winner: Monaco Coffee shop (Storyville): Not sure if theyâ€™re affiliated with Alexis, but itâ€™s just outside their doorstep. Excellent lattes, delicious pastries, and very friendly staff. Winner: Alexis (thereâ€™s a Starbucks next to the Monaco, but that just doesnâ€™t compare) General service: Meh. When I checked in, I wasnâ€™t given the normal spiel about what the hotel offers, etc. It was just â€œhereâ€™s your room number, have a good night.â€ So I asked something like â€œI normally stay at the Monaco, can you tell me a little bit about the hotel? Like is there a restaurant, etc.?â€ So the woman at the desk told me about the restaurantâ€¦but that was it. Nothing about the wine hour, the free bikes for rent, or the fitness center (I had to look at reviews online to determine whether there was one/where to find it!). [Yes, I could have called the front desk, too, but I was already miffed.] Winner: Monaco Hotel location: Close to Pike Place Market, which is a plus. If you plan on going to, say, the public library on 4th, be prepared to walk up 3 very steep hills to get there. I absolutely donâ€™t knock the hotel for this, I just want fellow travelers to make an educated decision. Winner: for me, a draw (Monaco is closerâ€”and on flat terrain!â€”to my office, but Alexis is closer to Le Panier and on flatter terrain). Other: The Kimpton Rewards program is great.
"I was traveling on Valentines Day."
I was a solo traveler on valentines day and the restaurant was so warm and accommodating! My server was awesome and they even had a special valentines day menu for solo travelers. Made my night! The hotel staff was very warm and accommodating. My room was very comfortablle
I stay at hotels all over the country for work and pleasure, and the Alexis is top notch. The service is what makes it truly standout. My family, dog and I had to stay because our power went out during a recent storm. We were greeted so warmly by Sam at the front desk. He went out of his way to make all of us feel at home. Even our dog Coco's name was written on a welcome board, with water and kibble. Room service was also exceptional. The woman took our order, got it exactly right, added some personal touches like mini marshmallows in a dish, and whipped cream in another dish, so the kids could customize their hot chocolate. Breakfast was delivered in 20 minutes, which is a record for my experiences with room service. The room itself also exceeded expectations. It was huge with beautiful high ceilings, clean and the beds were beyond comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel for all these reasons, and the fact that it's right in the heart of Seattle!
