We’re Cooking Up Something Wonderful

Welcome Back. Let’s Make History.

Thank you for your support and patience during these uncertain times. With the support of the City of Rapid City’s decision to reopen, we have developed guidelines for the health and safety of our visitors and associates. 

Keep your distance. Space yourselves 6 feet away from others when standing in line and dining in groups. Additionally, continue to wash your hands frequently under warm water for at least 20 seconds. We encourage you to take advantage of our hand sanitizer stations throughout the hotel resort to keep the germs away.

Our associates are dedicated to keeping you safe by practicing thorough handwashing; sanitizing frequently contacted surfaces, and staying home if they are ill.

From rooftop patios to Irish pubs, find succulent meals, sweet treats, classic cocktails, and cold brews when dining in the onsite restaurants at Hotel Alex Johnson.

Dine in or enjoy room service during your visit to downtown Rapid City, South Dakota.
