I really liked the Hotel as a whole. Very well kept and clean. Staff was very accommodating. What I didn't like was the parking issue and while we were there on a weekend there wasn't any fee for parking in the lot across the street so we were lucky. The room was very nice but the air conditioner was very very loud. I can handle some noise but everytime it cycled ( when the compressor came on ) I could feel it in the bed. Honestly didn't sleep a wink because of it. If I ever stay there again I will be certain to bring ear plugs.

We arrived from New York late at night and were told our reservation had been cancelled. The front desk employee eventually determined that the manager canceled our booking and moved us to a different hotel outside of the downtown area. This was very frustrating on many levels, particularly that we were not notified and there were specific reasons we chose that property and location

Wonderful value. Check in staff was checked out, but the comfortable suite made up for it- hope to stay again!

Character out the wazoo..!!

Hotel Alex Johnson has character out the wazoo..!! From the instant you step through the doors into the lobby with it's soaring ceiling, fire ablaze wide hearth, buffalo heads, Native American wall art, piano playing natives and famous chocolate vendor, this hotel makes one smile with appreciation. Add to that the legend that it's haunted, and this makes for a fabulous stay in Rapid City, SD! Our room, with wet bar, was plenty spacious and had an upgraded, small but luxurious, bathroom. Bedding was soft and very comfortable. This hotel is the oldest in Rapid, but only shows that in the small elevators and stairwells. If you can appreciate the wonderful history of a landmark, this hotel is for you. And even if history means nothing to you, Hotel Alex Johnson is right smack in the middle of walk-able downtown with it's many great restaurants and cool little shops.

Historical hotel in downtown Rapid City

Pros: The staff and their baby grand piano.
Cons: Cannot think of anything.
Location: Downtown Rapid City is alive at night with entertainers and we enjoyed watching the ice skaters.
There is a sense of being back in time to the opening of this opulent hotel in the 20's. The woodwork was amazing, the amenities were more than adequate, plenty of restaurants and close to entertainment. We liked the staff the most. The people went out of their way to help you with any problems or difficulties. Also, thanks to the hotel management for sharing their baby grand piano! It sounded great!

poorly designed

Pros: Nice location.
Cons: Poor design flow. Off site parking with a daily fee for the valet!
Location: Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer Park, Hiking, shopping and dinning!
The room was nicely decorated, however poorly designed! The dresser drawers opened into the bed, but even when closed it was a squeeze to get around the bed and into the room. Only mirrors were in the bathroom, making it difficult for two to get ready at the same time. Bathroom was very short on space for toiletries! A couple of shelves would have been nice. Even more disappointing were the filthy elevators!

Classy value

The room was very clean and classy. This is the place you'd take your best girl on a getaway weekend - simple and elegant with historical grace.
