The staff at the hotel was amazing! Bryan at the front desk and Joey from the book store were so helpful and accommodating. I had a Zoom call for work and didn’t have anywhere private to take it in the lobby and without hesitation, they set me up in one of their banquet rooms so I could really focus. The valet staff was also warm and friendly and everyone greeted me with a smile. 10/10 would stay again!

Hotel's Favourite
We had a wonderful stay at the Alexis! I loved the room decor and how comfortable it was. Everyone was so welcoming at the front desk, especially Meka! It’s within walking distance of many attractions and restaurants. The front desk also was able to give us tips on good food which is always a perk. Thanks for a great experience!!

Kristinaj! Meka is a rock star - and no one who meets her, ever forgets! She is just part of a team that really takes the hotel to another place - different from every other Seattle Hotel. We are delighted that you found some great eats - but next time try the new Bookstore by JHenderson! - the Chowder will change your life! Tom.

I’d give 0 star, if it’s allowed. The service is bare minimum. They advertised the daily breakfast, but when we inquired where we’d have it, they simplify answered : we don’t have breakfast, without any explanation. They charged over 120$ for two days valet parking even though the booking site says it’s 50$ per day. On top of that, they charged close to 30$ ‘destination charge’ per day when we checked out, without any indication of such charge when we booked the hotel. It’s a scam , pure and simple.

Thanks so much ZhiL, as I responded to you in the 3 other places you felt the need to post this, the charge for Valet and The Destination fee are clearly marked on the website of the 3rd party group that you booked with. Perhaps you were looking at some other Sonesta's where breakfast is included. The Valet parking is taxed by the city of Seattle and while that is a shame it is the same for everyone. I know you requested a discount for the parking which we didn't agree to, but we did move you to different rooms hoping to find one that would make you happy. I am truly disappointed that we couldn't make your stay more enjoyable, but we are definitely not a scam, hope you might come back and give us another try.

The hotel is in a great location for exploring downtown Seattle! The lobby, guest rooms, and bar/restaurant are clean and beautiful! The best part about our stay was the staff! We were greeted at the desk by Andrew who helped us with suggestions on where to go! Mike, head concierge/valet services, was so helpful on both ends of our trip helping us arrange transportation to and from the airport!! Audrey in the bar/restaurant was so friendly, prompt, and made delicious cocktails! Our whole group would HIGHLY recommend this hotel when you’re visiting Seattle!!

From check-in to check-out, the hotel has been excellent to say the least! We were helped by Byron at check-in, and he went above and beyond to make sure our stay was nothing less than perfect. I traveled to Seattle every month this year, and this was by far the best customer service I've received from anywhere I've stayed. The staff made every accommodation possible during our stay. Byron and the rest of the staff made sure they provided us with top notch service at every opportunity. Moving forward, I won't be staying anywhere but the Alexis Royal Sonesta. Thank you to Byron and the rest of the staff for an unforgettable stay!

Excellent hotel. We will almost certainly return when we have events in downtown Seattle. Large rooms, beautiful lobby, excellent front desk personnel, inexpensive breakfast, Only downside the $50 parking fee, which is probably now standard in downtown Seattle. Our room was a bargain, especially with the Tripadvisor plus discount.

Such a beautiful hotel! I was impressed with their attention to detail. But what made the experience truly exceptional were the employees I interacted with. Particularly Bryon who was manning the front desk. He had a way of making us feel so special. Wow. Just wow. Will totally come back!
