Can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff at the hotel are.We booked two rooms and Brooke at check-in made sure they were comfortable and were placed close to each other. She also helped up with our late check out and with the computers and printers when we needed to print up our tickets. This is a historic...

Love this historic hotel. Staff were all very friendly. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Great views of the surrounding area from the rooms. Valet were wonderful. Perfect place for the downtown experience. The attached bar had wonderful atmosphere and great service. If I'm ever in town again, will make this my hotel.

Ok stay. Staff seems very nice. More attention to detail when cleaning rooms...vacuum carpet or replace it all together...lots of stains. Don't like finding long hair from someone else in or on bed blankets....gross! Lastly, have workout equipment professional tuned up, elliptical machine was in very poor shape.

Luxury with a historical feel. The halls were lined with interesting historic photos, and the room was totally modern and inviting. The staff was very accommodating. I was very glad I had chosen to stay with them.

Another great stay at the Hotel Alex Johnson is in the books. The location is central to downtown Rapid City giving guests the ability to stay in to eat/drink or to explore downtown to find food/drink/entertainment/shopping on their own.

We haven't stayed at the Alex Johnson for a few years as it got so rundown and management took away the use of the Vertex for guests. With the renovations, things are much improved. This is a great historic hotel with great upgrades. Beds are extremely comfortable. Staff goes out of their way to be sure you are taken care...

I spent a lot for not soft towels... or a safe feeling elevator. It is an old hotel, who wants to ride in an creepy old elevator? I am tired and want to sleep. The site is forcing me to write more but I am too tired to care anymore!! It was an okay hotel.

This Curio Collection hotel was a pleasant surprise. Even though it continues to be under renovation, the hotel was quite and welcoming. Just what to expect for this category of Hilton's properties. The staff made the experience a solid 10 in my view. I will definitely return, both for business and with my family. The newly renovated room was comfortable,...

I've always wanted to stay at this hotel, and I finally did. I'm so torn with this review. I absolutely love the interior of the hotel and the things to do inside of it, The Vertex Sky Bar, Paddy O'Neills Pub, Starbucks, BUT, then we get to the rooms. The rooms are incredibly cramped, to the point it's almost a...
