We arrived around midnight and the bellman Andrew was very helpful. He helped us find a street parking spot and carried our many bags to the room. We received an upgrade to a family suite, which consisted of one bathroom and two bedrooms: one with a kind and one with a queen. The room was very nice, and the views...

I received excellent service from Savoy, Bryce and Tim. They were extremely friendly and were even giving fun hotel facts on the way up the elevator. They gave me directions without even asking. Thank you for the great service!

One night in Rapid City during our family road trip and as I enjoy historic properties, I chose the Hotel Alex for our evening accommodations. First and foremost, the hotel is in the midst of renovating the rooms. Prior reviews demonstrate the difference between those that have been renovated and those that have yet to be. So I asked for...

Too old and stuck in the past, elevators, yes but too small and one did not work when leaving, 7 floors of stairs (thanks). Breakfast was poor. All round not a good experience try for something a little more modern if visiting Rapid City. Staff are friendly enough though.

Beautiful hotel and rooms were nice. It is a historical hotel and it was enjoyable to be there. Convenient location. Staff was friendly and helpful. It was in a good location downtown. We enjoyed the hotel restaurant so much we ate there both nights. There is a fee for parking and, of course, tips for concierge, parking attendants etc.

This hotel is right in the heart of Rapid City, close to many shops and restaurants and things to do. I'm not sure which hotel the previous reviewer stayed at. We were in room 624, a corner room, and it seems to have been recently renovated. The bathroom fixtures were all brand-new, the bedroom was very fresh and up to...

The hotel has much to be desired. I understand it's a historic property but it seems like it has not been tended to for years. The room that we stayed in was dingy, stuffy and dirty. The bathroom still had a long black hair from a previous guest that would not flush and clearly the cleaning lady did not have...

From outside, the place looked old and maybe a bit run down. Lobby kept its old and maybe its original setup. It still uses the original old lift. But the inside of the rooms were re-done and furnished. Bath room plumbings and furnishings were upgraded. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Overall a pleasant experience.
