  • Know Before You Go

    by bonzo1957 on 2019-11-05 07:23 pm

    This historic hotel is in the heart of downtown Rapid City. There are some pluses and minuses that go with that distinction. The most important thing to know (which I didn't before I got there) is that the double rooms do not have the traditional queen size beds, but rather full size beds. Once I arrived it was clear to me that our adult children would need a room of their own as the rooms are very small - and equally small are the bathrooms. Also, parking is challenging because you have to leave your car on the street for the valet to park your car. This was somewhat stressful on this particular trip as I had a rental car, and was therefore uncomfortable just leaving it on the street. Lastly, the elevators are very small. It was difficult to get on the first elevator that came by if there were more than 6 people already on it.

    On the plus side, as most have mentioned it is very quaint and authentic if you like historical buildings. The front desk staff were VERY nice and accommodating. In fact, almost without exception, everyone we met on the hotel staff were very nice and helpful. There is no attached restaurant as in most Hilton properties, but there is a Starbucks attached to the hobby that has the usual selection of snacks.

    I would stay again, but this time I would have an understanding of the limitations presented by this historic building.

  • We felt at home from the moment we walked in.

    My wife and I loved the ambience of this hotel the moment we walked into the main entrance.
    We arrived early and were prepared to just store our luggage but the room was available so we checked in.
    We wanted to visit Mount Rushmore and the receptionist helped us out and gave us phone number of taxi service that could take us there and return us. Being 28 October, not much available so the assistance was appreciated we we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. So after check-in we were out within 5 minutes as the taxi was available.
    We returned to hotel and enjoyed hot tomato/basil soup at the Paddy O'Neill's Irish Pub & Grill, which is connected to the hotel. It was lovely.
    After walking the streets seeing the beautiful town, we returned and cleaned up. We bought a wine and sat in front of the fire in the lobby of the hotel which was so nice.
    Later we went upstairs to the Vertex Sky Bar and enjoyed a drink and some snacks. Apparently it is good place to see the views of city and seeing the sunset but unfortunately the day we were here the snow flurry was coming down so the views weren't that good. It is nice in the sky bar though.
    We decided to have dinner at the Paddy O'Neill's Irish Pub & Grill. We wanted the fish and chips and were a little disappointed in quality as it probably all frozen food.
    Night sleep was good as it was very quiet and the bed was comfortable.
    Overall the hotel itself is excellent and we would stay here again and would recommend for others.

  • Girls Trip to the Dakotas

    by Donna L on 2019-11-02 06:51 am

    Four girls on a road trip, yes we flew from Boston to enjoy my girlfriends last state to visit. She was in the military for 25 years and the Dakotos were the last states to visit. I choose Hotel Alex Johnson for the history and the Hilton brand. We were thrilled to experience the history of the hotel and the wonderful rooms to sleep in were perfect. The front desk was amazing; especially Ross who took care of our needs in every way. Great job to all and such a wonderful memory because of your establishment and staff!

  • Historic Hotel

    by wti69011 on 2019-10-23 12:29 am

    If you want a lovely place to stay in Rapid City South Dakota check into the Alex Johnson. Good size rooms, clean and central. Unique rooftop bar with plenty of gas fires to keep you warm on these cool fall nights, but places inside as well. A pleasant renovation of an historic hotel
