Staying at the Hotel Alex Johnson is a treat any time of the year. In the summer you can enjoy the piano bar in the lounge, or sit outside and people watch. Paddy O'Neills pub also has free entertaiment in an Irish pub setting. The rooms are unique, with a native american/western theme. The lobby is warm and inviting with a massive stone fireplace and leather seating. The Alex Johnson is Rapid City's version of the Plaza.
Pros: valet parking, downtown shopping, great dining
