Steeped in fascinating history, Hotel Alex Johnson is perhaps one of the most interesting hotels you’ll find in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Open since 1928 – a year after work on nearby Mount Rushmore first began – this hotel has a timeless aesthetic that will immerse you back into the 1920’s, with handcrafted décor and its original brick flooring.
This is certainly an historic gem, having once played host to several presidents and celebrities. You’ll step back in time during your stay here, yet still be treated to the utmost comfort and style. From the Traditional Guest Rooms, to the wonderful Presidential Suite, all of the accommodation adopts a cosy and inviting ambience, with hints of historic charm and a few modern amenities.
Venture up to the two top floors and you’ll find Vertex Sky Bar, a trendy and contemporary bar with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto unsurpassable views of Rapid City and the Black Hills. Paddy O’Neill’s is a lot of fun too, mixing vibrant Irish charm with classic American feasts. Be sure to grab yourself a hand-dipped chocolate from Chubby Chipmunks too.
Rapid City is a quaint town, with plenty of restaurants and bars to visit. This is a brilliant spot for visiting some of South Dakota’s most incredible attractions – including Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial and Badlands National Park.
