Arts and culture, sports and recreation, shopping and strolling, dining and drinking, business and finance — downtown Seattle buzzes with a whole lot more than caffeine, although we’ve got plenty of that, too. The Kimpton Alexis Hotel is perfectly positioned in the West Edge neighborhood downtown, which borders the waterfront, Pioneer Square, Belltown, and the retail core.
