We booked the bridal suite for an anniversary. Lovely room with beautiful views of historic Rapid City & the Black Hills! Would definitely recommend a visit to the Vertex bar on top of hotel & relax by the fire!

Yes, $50 per night! They also have a package for $75 per night that includes valet parking, a dog bed and some biscuits. Steep price, but it's the only Hilton brand in Rapid City that allows pets.

What perks do you offer Diamond members? Is there breakfast or an executive lounge?
The staff did not acknowledge my status. I don't believe status matters at this hotel. They treat all their guest as if they are all diamond. Even with Hilton giving free wine and beer I would still prefer the Alex... I loved it there.
