We currently use Google Analytics but have also take a subscription out to so that we are able to view analysis of other peoples websites to compare where they are with us.  Is this a feature that is available at all through Google Analytics?

Google Analytics allows you to grant a user permission to view your data and reports, but you are unable to simply see analytics for any website you wish. This is prevented by the authentication tokens used on the back end and intended to keep the information confidential.

That being said, there are tools similar to Alexa that can give you estimates on statistics for other websites. A few you might be interested in are SEMRush, iSpionage, and Social-Searcher. These can give you some insight into performance, but information will not be as reliable as Google Analytics.
