The Seattle Arts at The Alexis Hotel
If you're interested in Seattle's art and culture, The Alexis Hotel is the place to stay while visiting the Emerald City. From our own curated "Art Walk" and remarkable suites to our location just two blocks from the Art Museum and near countless Seattle art galleries, theaters and music venues, we celebrate the arts in style at our boutique downtown hotel.
Seattle is known for its quirky sensibility, and our historic hotel is no exception. The past of Seattle is present and the future is unfolding in our guestrooms, specialty suites, public spaces and throughout the neighborhood. The Alexis Hotel is a dynamic part of the Seattle arts community, displaying original works by local artists throughout our hotel. Your stay with us also centers you for artful adventures elsewhere in the city.
