KIMPTON ALEXIS HOTEL

We had the privilege to stay at the newly transformed Kimpton Alexis Hotel on First Street in downtown. The hotel’s historic architecture takes your breathe away, with high ceilings and beautiful decor, the sophisticated renovated spaces reflect the vibrant present of the boutique hotel. They are pet friendly, which allowed us to bring our little dog Honey Bear along for the ride, which made the trip so much easier for us to enjoy. With a WOOF box, treats, and water in the lobby, we could pick out a special toy for her to have while in town. We stayed in one of their Spa Suites which had an amazing Spa bathroom with soaking tub and walk in shower. With large windows and comfy furniture, we could enjoy views of the city and waterfront from the comfort of our room. They have a Full Service Spa, a Hosted Evening Social Hour, Valet Parking, and the wonderful Bookstore Bar & Cafe attached. We highly recommend the Kimpton Alexis if you are looking for a a great place to stay in the heart of the city with a laidback luxury feel. Plus, it is only a couple blocks away from one of the partner museums, the Seattle Art Museum (SAM).

Additional Information:

  • Wine in the lobby at 5 each evening.

It is home to the world-famous Space Needle, as well as two of our most favorite museums, the Chihuly Garden & Glass, and the Museum of Pop Culture.
